As if this idiot hasn't destroyed enough of our economy yet, here he goes again pushing to mandate cars that the American people have continually refused to buy:
President Barack Obama has struck a deal with the nation's automakers to raise mandatory fuel-efficiency standards to 54.5 miles per gallon (mpg) by 2025, a staggering 65% increase, National Journal reports.
The new figure represents a compromise between environmentalists, who had asked the government to raise the law from the present 35.5 mpg to 62 mpg, and the automakers, who pushed for 45 mpg.
Leave it to a freaking HARVARD GRADUATE with absolutely no background in business, engineering, finance, or any other pursuit that doesn't involve EXTORTION to try and revive the freaking Trabant. Believe me, folks -- all of the "gifted" oration in the world couldn't sell that POS, so whatever these environmentalist nutjobs that pull TOTUS' strings think they can sell to the American people, will absolutely fail.
Thankfully, when the automotive industry is finally and completely extinguished after this massive increase in government regulation jacks the price of an entry-level car way up to $45,000 and reduces the safety to that of a tin can, I will have the last laugh. Those tried and true Obama voters in the union-dominated factories deserve exactly what's coming to them, at this point.
(Oh, and the environMENTALists can go screw, as always.)
As always, Doug Ross brings the funny picture to the debate. Many thanks for the link, Doug!
