President Obama (I can say that now) has lashed out at the ordinary cars that American's drive. You know the ones. They have engines. They can tow stuff. They can take you and your friends to the burger joint in comfort even if you're really fat.
Anyway, Mr Obama wants everyone to drive a Ford Focus.
President Obama took the first steps yesterday towards weaning America off its
gas-guzzling habits as he told his country and a beleaguered motor industry
to show the courage needed to tackle global warming.
Except as we've just heard, we have 1000 years of warm weather no matter what we do. Still, Mr Obama has god-like powers.
In another decisive break with the Bush Administration, he signed executive
orders to hasten the introduction of cleaner vehicles for a nation that is
the world’s biggest polluter.
And that nation would be? The article doesn't say.
“Now is the time to make the tough choices,” he declared.
Now is the time to pacify jealous European voters whose only chance of driving a decent car is on a trip to Florida.
“Year after year, decade after decade, we’ve chosen delay over decisive
action, rigid ideology has overruled sound science, special interests have
overshadowed common sense
Well we didn't know about global warming until recently. Mr Obama has it around the wrong way - the environmentalists are the ones who hate science. Heaven forbid that they might run into an honest scientist!
If this is the rhetoric which which he has become famous, then either the voters are stupid or the White House food is adling his brain.
Luckily for the free world, Mr Obama is not a first class hypocrit. He wouldn't own one of these gas guzzlers and drive it around, or anything. No, Mr Obama probably owns a push bike and a Prius. Er, wait.
Of course, automakers only make what their customers want, and it was soon revealed that Obama himself owned a 21 mpg Chrysler 300C - one of the brand's biggest, thirstiest, most powerful sedans making 340 HP from its 5.7-liter Hemi engine.
Caught in his hypocrisy, Obama quickly bought a "green," 32 mpg hybrid Ford Escape.
Phew, environmentalism is nothing if it is not hypocritical.
