There he goes again. Barack Obama is lambasting Detroit’s Big 3 automakers again for manufacturing SUVs. He attacked the car companies over the weekend for making the “mistake” of investing in SUVs and large trucks instead of producing more fuel-efficient vehicles. Obama also bragged about his Big 3- bashing speech a year ago that delivered “the kind of truth-telling we need from the next president.”
A truth-telling reminder of the gas-guzzling car Obama himself was driving before eco-hypocrisy caught up with him:
Output: 340 hp, 390 lb-ft
EPA fuel economy, city/highway: 17/25 (17/24 AWD)
His fancy wheels got less than the standard 27 mpg that he now whines is too low.
After his do-as-i-say-ism was exposed, he traded in his beast for a Ford Escape Hybrid.
But on the campaign trail, to this day, it’s still the bigger the better.
Obama’s eco-hypocrisy emission standard: High.
