It didn’t take long to remind that the man’s words are seperate from his deeds. His naming of political hatchet man Rham Emanuel his WH Chief of Staff is a clear signal he will be about acheiving his leftist agenda.

UPDATE: More here on Emanuel

The best quote: “He’s as cold-blooded as I need him to be to make the decisions.” — House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi on Emanuel, May 27 National Journal.

    The Feb. Obama speech inspired me to help the economy, that decision backfired on me. I was caught up in a dragnet by a Nissan dealership that made it impossible to get out of the deal. As I look back at the transaction, they used unethical tactics to make the deal. They used high pressured techniques to get me to sign a lease agreement, on the way home, I realized that I made a hasty decision and asked for more time to reconsider. I was told that I had signed over all rights to my trade and I was threatened with ruined credit if I did not go along with the deal, they would report this as a repossession. MO does not have the 3 day cool off law. After three weeks of mounting attorney and rental car fees, I relunctlantly had to take the car. Nissan Corp. was no help, they said that I had to go along with the signed lease agreement, they did address the unethical tactics of the dealership of threatening me with ruined credit and treating me so disrespectfully. I have been a loyal Nissan driver for 39 years, I will not drive another one once I am out of this lease. I feel that they went after me because I was a female, an African American, an elderly lady, over 800 credit and would not want to ruin that, they wanted my trade. Everyone I have talked to, even dealerships, all say that they thought they could get away with this action. They got away with it, they had time and Nissan Corp on their side. They did not think that I would make a fuss. Used cars are in demand, easier to qualify for and finance, new cars are not moving, this came out in a recent auto show. Car ads are asking for trades. I am committed to looking at getting the law amended, or at least making it a requirement that dealerships inform the customer that there is no 3 day cooling off law as relates to cars. If this was in place, I could have gone to another dealership to do business instead of having to do business with these people who was not interested in good customer satisfaction, I see this behavior as becoming worse as the auto industry go down, make a deal by any means necessary. This is no way to restore confidence in the auto industry. Just wanted you to know how this company handled this ordeal. I will keep making a big noise, I am reminded of the quote, to paraphrase, “When they came for the Catholics, Jews, Protestants, etc., I said nothing, when they came for me there was no one to speak up. I see why people become activists, when they do not see justice for them or their cause. Nissan Corp. is big, Lee’s Summit Nissan is big, but neither is bigger than word of mouth. My friends and I will continue to use the 3 ft. rule, tell this story to everyone within 3 ft. of you! Would love to get your take on this, would love to tell my story on a televised interview if something is aired on the auto industry.

    Thank you,
    I remain, Lee’s Summit Nissan’s sacrificial Lamb.
