Obama Hits Brown: “Anybody Can Buy A Truck” (Or Can They?)

BOSTON, MA — Pres. Obama took the stage shortly before 4 pm to stump for AG Martha Coakley (D) in a last-ditch effort to save Dems’ 60-vote super majority in the Senate, taking a swipe at her GOP opponent’s populist appeal.

“He’s driving his truck around the Commonwealth and he says that he gets you,” Obama said of state Sen. Scott Brown (R).

“Everybody can run slick games,” he added. “Forget the truck. Anybody can buy a truck.”

Obama touted Coakley’s record of standing up for Main Street, not Wall Street, echoing Dem themes of the last several days as they hit Brown for opposing a new fee on banks. Brown, Obama said, “decided to park his truck on Wall Street.”

“When the chips are down, when the tough votes come on all the fights that matter to middle-class families all across this commonwealth, who is going to be on your side?”

The crowd cheered some answer that sounded to this reporter’s ear like a cross between “Barack!” and “Martha!”

Scott Brown responded to the president’s attack. FOX News reported:

Brown took that opportunity to slam the president on government spending..

Mr. President, unfortunately in this economy, not everybody can buy a truck,” Brown said in a statement. “My goal is to change that by cutting spending, lowering taxes and letting people keep more of their own money.”

As ridiculous as the President’s line of attack on Sunday is to most people, Jim Hoft of GatewayPundit shows us just how ironic those comments are by pointing out that Scott Brown drives a GM truck.


First, isn’t this yet another example of Barack Obama’s elitism? Who cares what the candidates drive? Why does this president seem hell-bent on destroying America by continually pitting one group of citizens against another with his divisive remarks?

Also, as taxpayers, we technically own about one-third of that automaker. So, the President should be encouraging voters to buy GMC products, shouldn’t he?

‘Obama Disconnect Disorder’, again…
