You know what? When Barack Obama made that tire gauge comment he must have been playing to a certain crowd. The franchise mechanic crowd! I was just on the phone with one of my local franchise mechanics shops and they had to put me on hold. They usually play advertisements during this time and each on was about checking your tires to see if the tread was correct and if the tire pressure was good. Can you imagine what Goodyear, Michelin, and Firestone were saying when they heard that comment? They must have scrambled their ad people to find a way to capitalize on Obama’s dumb comment. Since Barack is anti-capitalist, like most liberals are, he inadvertantly helped capitalism. Ain’t that just ironic?
