HE has spoken!!!

When I was a kid, some 11,000 years ago, I was taught that WE are all Americans, and as such, WE were all (supposed) to play by and live by the same rules. I noticed as I got older that our elected offals routinely exempted themselves from more and more of the rules that THEY made for (only) US. I'm not sure when it started, but it just keeps going, which is IMHO, total bullshit.
In the midst of forcing stiffer CAFE Standards and higher fuel prices on US, the ultimate leader, OBAMA, has decided to exempt HIS car from those standards!!
What's that officer, "Nothing new here, move along" uh huh MY ASS!!! I'll go when I'm through talking!!
Presidential limousine, security vehicles exempt from fed 'green' vehicle policy
The U.S. Secret Service said today that some federal vehicles for law enforcement and security purposes will be exempt from President Barack Obama's directive that all federal vehicles purchased starting 2015 be advanced technology models.

Secret Service spokesman Robert Novy said the directive wouldn't apply to vehicles used for some law enforcement or security reasons by various federal agencies.
"Certain specialized vehicles including those with law enforcement and security specifications are not subject to this directive," Novy said.

That would include the GM-built Cadillac presidential limousine and other vehicles in the motorcade. It also expected to include many law enforcement vehicles.

Obama announced the plan this week to "green" the federal fleet.

"I'm directing our departments and our agencies to make sure 100 percent of the vehicles they buy are fuel-efficient or clean energy cars and trucks by 2015.Not 50 percent, not 75 percent — 100 percent of our vehicles," Obama said today at an appearance in Landover, Md., at UPS facility to urge private companies to green their vehicle fleets.

Obama noted that the federal government has more than 600,000 vehicles — the largest fleet in the United States — and has doubled the number of hybrids in its fleet over the last year — though they still account for less than 5 percent of government vehicles.

The only word I can find is, 'typical'.
In the end, the ONLY thing Mr. Obama cannot exempt himself from is public opinion. But, George Soros, in the guise of Media Matters, is attempting to shut down the ONLY dissenting voice in media, Fox News. At the same time, the left wants Net Neutrality, which puts THEM in charge of internet content.
The last time a government tried this hard, this fast, to keep honest people from knowing the truth, there were arm bands, zig heils and furnaces involved! November 2012 simply CANNOT come too fast to suit me!!

yea well, on this matter I agree with the secret service. Protecting the President is hard enough with out using vehicles that have no acceleration

I think the point is that Obama says one thing and does something else. IMHO I'd be fine if the Presidential Limo was nuclear powered.

Back in the day i used to maintain the pres fleet before they went GSA, Those things are HEAVY! You ain't getting no gas mileage to speak of.

Don't get me wrong, I think he should have the heaviest, fastest, gas guzzling car he desires. AND SO SHOULD WE!!!!

If I have the money for "X" size / brand gas guzzling, 19' long, 7.5 ' wide, SUV with towing package and filled, bubbling hot tub, I should be FREE to buy., drive and soak in said Hot TubUVehicle!

See here's the deal, they can fool Average Joe on all this crap, but I worked in the auto emission bid'ness dealing WITH the EPA fed style, and I worked in power generation bid'ness, twice, dealing with Cal/EPA and with EPA fed style. Here's the nasty (secret) truth of air quality in America.

pssst, psst...the air is cleaner right now, cleaner probably than it has been since the early 1800's when the industrial revolution started. See, back then, and until the mid 1960's COAL and OIL and even wood were major sources of heat for power and producing steam. The air was smokey in some places ALL the time.

Your air, anywhere in the United States, is cleaner this very minute, than it was when you were 10. Regardless of when you were ten. Stiffer standards have more to do with control and global warming than clean air.

Man caused Global Warming is a lie, and do we really need idiots we don't even know getting MORE power in our lives!? Don't believe the air is cleaner?

Look it up.

The philosophy behind all this is very simply. It's the basic principle of the Left;

Do as i say, not as i do...

And Steve old buddy, you're assuming the election results will be different in 2012 than they were in '08? Do you believe your fellow citizens will be less stupid, gullible, distracted, mindless, and weak, next year?

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague."
-- Marcus Tullius Cicero

I'm not sure he can get through the Dem Primaries Spider.

I do hold out that hope, that the voters are too pissed off to keep him.

But my fears are deep seated and backed by scientific data. 2012 looks like a banner year for famines, wars, solar flares, and U.N. stupidity. Mix that with the hyper-small stick of weakness we now wield, while speaking WAY too loudly, I think we're in hyper trouble.

I really wonder if my older son will come home in a box. But what can I do? Prepare for the worst is all I can, and DO with haste, daily.
