First. I apologize for the very poor painting of Barack Obama naked that I found when I Googled ‘Emperor Obama has no clothes’. Trust me. This first tie-in pic could have been much, much worse. And as the kind arbiter of content on the blog I’ve seen things during this search that cannot be unseen.
Thank me for sparing you, loyal readers. I sent one of the pics to McMartin and he’s gone and clawed his eyes out. Sorry McM. (Not like he can read my apology now with his eyes all gouged out and all. Poor bastard.)
I’ll admit that the first bit of this post was simply to support the Title, but let’s move on, shall we?
We already knew that Energy Sec Steven Chu is an extreme environmentalist left wing kook, and consequently, a perfect executor of the president’s energy policies.
But when it came out yesterday that the Energy Sec has no car and he’s responsible for formulating our national energy policy, even he recognized the absurdity of it all and began to laugh during his testimony.
But let’s look at all of these ObamaCrat creatures and their vehicles of choice, if they have vehicles at all.
There exists a significant preponderance of foreign vehicles amongst this Birkenstock driven administration, but as a caveat I will admit that I now drive a Toyota Tundra, which I reluctantly purchased last year because my GMC Yukon was starting to act up and cost me major money every time it entered the shop. It was time for a replacement and I refused to buy a Government Motors vehicle and I won’t buy a Ford either because of the UAW, even though they didn’t take the bailout.
Buying American is not always patriotic. But I digress.
Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner and White House National Economic Council Director Lawrence Summers — both own foreign automobiles.
Geithner owns a 2008 Acura TSX, registered in New York. He once owned a 1999 Honda Accord and a 2002 Acura MDX, according to public records.
Geithner is the president’s designee for purposes of enforcing loan agreements with GM and Chrysler and must approve or reject any proposed transactions by either company that would cost $100 million or more.
His maternal grandfather, Charles Moore, was a vice president at Ford Motor Co. from 1952-63, according to Peter Geithner, the secretary’s father. But Geithner wasn’t very interested in cars growing up — in part because he graduated from high school in Asia, his father said.
Summers owns a 1995 Mazda Protege that’s registered in Massachusetts. He previously owned a 1996 Ford Taurus GL.
What other task force members drive:
•Office of Management and Budget Director Peter Orszag owns a 2008 Honda Odyssey and a 2004 Volvo S60. He previously owned a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 1982 Datsun.
•Carol Browner, the White House climate czar, said earlier this month at the Washington Auto Show that she doesn’t own an automobile. Public records show she once owned a 1999 Saab 9-5 SE.
•Energy Secretary Steven Chu doesn’t own a car, his wife, Jean Fetter, said in a telephone interview on Sunday. Cabinet officials are typically transported to and from work by security officials in government vehicles.
•Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson owns a 2008 Toyota Prius and a Honda Odyssey minivan, she said Sunday. “It’s great,” she said of her Prius.
2009? Steven Chu hasn’t owned a vehicle for the last 3 years? Or more? Does the guy even have a driver’s license? Sounds like he’s been raised like a veal. Can he even ride a bicycle?
These are some severely weird people running the show, wouldn’t you say?
