American Jobs

thanks to democrats my truck is fueled by foreign oil
The liberals have asked us to give Obama time. Would...25 to life be appropriate
What's the difference between God and Obama? God doesn't think he's Obama.


And now Ford is building their new 6.7 in mexico. That's really helping American jobs isn't it?

You can thank NAFTA for that.

In reality, we live in a global economy. Care to guess what the cost of the truck would be if every part was made in America.

Navistar and Hino. GM sort of falls on that category; they own 60% of DMAX.
