As long as the scratches are in the clear coat they can be buffed out. This does take a but of skill to avoid burning the paint or buffing through to the base color layer.

I use a Porter Cable 7424 buffer (sweet machine) and three levels of 3M buffing and rubbing compounds with a couple different kinds of pads. It really is less expensive and a whole lot less risky to pay a detail shop a hundred bucks to do this for you. After the scratches and swirls are removed I use a truck wax. This stuff is supposed to help prevent scratches when trucks go offroad. All I know is that it lasts longer than most other waxes.
