“Every time Obama appears on TV to deliver the same tired arguments that
they’ve already rejected, the more he looks like an empty suit to
That’s exactly it.
Years ago, there was a series of silly TV ads on Phoenix-area television for Sonoyta Motors, a used-car dealership up in Glendale. The ads had the owner/manager of Sonoyta dressed up in a white tux with a white mask + cowboy hat and calling himself “The Loan Arranger”. They were dumb and idiotic and utterly ineffective, but they were EVERYWHERE. Did they make me or anyone else with an IQ above room temperature want to buy a used car? No. But they were memorable for their ubiquity and inanity, so much so that to this day, I’ll bet our Phoenix readers can name The Loan Arranger’s sidekick.
But it didn’t do any good. Sonoyta Motors is long gone. Constantly being on TV with a memorable tagline and an engaging personality isn’t enough. At some point, people have to want what you’re selling. And people are not buying into ObamaCare.
(p.s. His sidekick was his donkey, E-Z Credit. Now, can you name me his girlfriend?)
