Obama Takes Shot at Scott Brown's Truck; It's a GM

Obama attempted to take a shot at Scott Brown's truck in his speech for Coakley yesterday, saying that "anyone can own a truck." Ironically, Brown's truck is a GM.

Oh, and Obama knows damn well exactly how unpopular Obamacare is, judging from the fact that he never mentioned it in his speech. From Jake Tapper:

But in Boston -- a fairly hospitable "one end of the country" -- the president did not directly mention the health care reform legislation, opposition to which Brown has made one of the signatures of his campaign. He talked about Coakley being on the side of the people, and Brown on the side of the insurance industry, but there was no direct reference to Brown being the key vote against passage of the health care reform bill.

This was an obvious sign that the White House knows just how unpopular the legislation currently is, regardless of what the president told House Democrats last week.
