AP Scrubs Damaging Obama Quote from Windmill Event
citizen5408.com ^ | April 7, 2011 | Greg C.

Posted on 04/07/2011 8:32:13 AM PDT by FreedomFighter1013

FAIRLESS Hills, PA At an event at a Spanish windmill firm in Pennsylvania, President Obama suggested Americans consider selling their gas guzzlers for more fuel efficient cars. The president chided one questioner, saying: "If you're complaining about the price of gas and you're only getting 8 miles a gallon, you know,you might want to think about a trade-in."

The Associated Press reported that Mr. Obama made the comment "laughingly." However, the quote has been scrubbed from the original linked page.

Fortunately, Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit captured a screenshot:

And when the president told the person to think about a trade-in, what did he have in mind? Did he want the person to buy a Chevy Volt? Is Obama being a salesman for General Motors in some way????

Real news from this president just gets worse and worse. I certainly hope the sentient part of the country’s voters can’t stomach his ineptitude in 2012.

you might want to think about a trade-in.

Oh, Obama is such a riot - what a comedian - he is almost as funny as Al Frankin. But, come to think of it, we ARE thinking of a trade in and it isn’t our cars, mr. funny man!

We just got back from a Caribbean cruise.
There are a sh*tload of windmills on Aruba.
The day we got there the wind was blowing like crazy and NONE of them were turning, LOL.

Another shining example that TOTUS is a blithering idiot.

Most large trucks (18 wheelers) get about 5 mi. / gal.
If their fuel costs go up, so do the prices for the goods they haul. If you have it, a truck brought it.

Inflation.

Those with cars that get 8 mpg don’t drive them.
They leave them in the garage and polish them once in a while, and maybe take them out on really nice days for a spin.

That’s the deal - when they actually would be the most productive, they don’t/can’t run them because they will either tear themselves up or make too much noise.

Great line. Actually That Chevy model is great. I just traded in my ‘04 Cavalier for a Colbalt. the Cav’ had 251,000 miles and ran great. I could have gotten 300K but why push it.

Apart from ultra-exotics and custom jobs where the owners won't be caring about the price of gas (I'd be more worried about the $4,000 worth of tires that you can blow through on a track weekend), I'd say the one I know of the best is Obama's limo, which gets exactly 8 mpg *diesel*.

What an idiot he is. Heavy pickups with large V-8s still get near over 15mpg hwy. People aren’t complaining about their mileage. They’re upset it’s taking almost $40 to fill their 10 gallon econo-box.

We are thinking about a trade-in ....... we need a new president who doesn't lecture the country like children and who doesn't have his head up his you-know-what in the dark about the critical issues our country faces. "Drill Brazil drill" and windmills are not an energy policy for America.

I have a 7,200 pound truck that gets nearly 20MPG.

Is that idiot from Chicago still inhaling dope?

Yes, our W350 Dodge Crew cab 4x4 gets 10 and sits in the garage unless we need to buck snowdrifts. Meanwhile the LT1 Trans Am gets 24MPG we drive it as much as possible, it is not a garage queen. I work with a guy that has a late 2000 corvette that averages in the high 20s no matter how he drives it. He’s driven it in snow!

Most large trucks (18 wheelers) get about 5 mi. / gal.

But as far as weight transported for a given distance goes, they are far more efficient than any 40mpg car. But Obama doesn't mind adding a few hundred bucks to the cost of delivering a truckload of food to the people. The taxpayer pays for his wagyu beef to be flown in.

If the government stopped watering down our fuel with ethanol we'd get better MPG. Dope head could give a rat's arse what we pay for fuel. Personally, I think this is payback to us for denying him his little carbon credit trading scheme. He stood to profit quite nicely from that fairy dust trading scam.
