Broken down FordHarold Ford Jr. is apparently taking a hint from Republicans who were critical of Bob Corker during the Primary, as he used a Pilot station in West Knoxville as a backdrop this past week to question Corker's trustworthiness on the issue of gas prices considering Corker's strong friendship with and heavy campaign ties to Jim Haslam (who is the real power behind Corker). Asked Ford:
"Do you trust him (Corker) to lower gas prices, or do you trust me and a new generation of leaders in Washington?"
Well, to be honest Harold, I don't trust you in the least. Yes, Bob Corker is Jim and Bill Haslam's b****. There is little doubt in my mind that Corker's candidacy for the Senate is being used as a test run for a Bill Haslam for Governor campaign. If we look at some of your known contributors, we see Hollywood mogul-types, and trendy New York fundraisers with Bill Clinton. Why, I'll bet if we look really hard, we can find some oil money (and God knows what else) in your warchest. After all, we know about all the unsavory business your family is involved in.
Would you buy a used car from this man?
