I'm sure GM & Chrysler CEOs were red faced when President Obama endorsed Ford

GM's future CEO, President Obama, goofed a little when he accidentally endorsed the only domestic automaker who didn't seek government relief. Read the article linked in the title.
Obama at a press conference anouncing new CAFE standards that will go into effect in 2016 was standing back from the podium, when he added that he thinks his Ford Escape Hybrid is still parked at home in Chicago. He said it drives real well and people should check it out.

Realising that CEOs for Chrysler and GM were standing right there, he quickly added that there were other Hybrid and "fuel independant" manufacturers as well. Doh! Alan Mullaly was seen pumping his fist in the air. You just know that FoMoCo execs are going to be talking about this around the water cooler. Ford should give Obama a new Fusion Hybrid as a gift. Or even better, give it to me.
