Speaking Truth to Horsepower


Good gravy! What is that behemoth from which SUV-slaying Barack “Speak Truth to Horsepower” Obama and his family are emerging on the Chicago airport tarmac Tuesday? It’s. . . it’s . . . a 13-mpg Chevy Suburban sport ute!


Do as I say, not as I do.


Obama’s inconvenient photo comes in the midst of a campaign in which he regularly preaches against Detroit’s production of large vehicles, saying that “when our economy, our security, and the safety of our planet depend on our ability to make cleaner, more fuel-efficient cars, every American has a responsibility to make sure that happens.”

Well, not every American, obviously.
