Jeep workers protest after Obama underestimates Wrangler’s tough capabilities

2011 Jeep Wrangler

Last week, President Obama paid a visit to the Jeep plant in Toledo to talk about the impact his administration had on keeping Chrysler thriving, and helping to improve the automotive industry. Part of the discussion also included the concerns around the job report released Friday.

The Jeep Wrangler also ended up a hot topic of conversation. The people who help build the vehicle take pride in the Wrangler’s tough reputation. So Chrysler plant workers took offence to an analogy the President made about the road to recovery being something a Wrangler would not even be able to navigate.

Obama, who has a solid reputation when it comes to speeches, still managed to amuse his audience, commenting “A Wrangler can go over anything, huh?”.
