Foreign Car-Bashing DNC Chair Owns ... Foreign Car
Wasserman Schultz attacked the GOP for putting US auto industry at risk By Matt Cantor, Newser Staff

The chairwoman of the DNCwho slammed Republican 2012 hopefuls for putting the US auto industry at risk by favoring foreign automakersherself owns a foreign car, the Hill reports. If it were up to the candidates for president on the Republican side, we would be driving foreign cars; they would have let the auto industry in America go down the tubes, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said, referencing their opposition to Obama's 2009 bailouts for GM and Chrysler.
But her family owns a 2010 Infiniti FX35 made by Nissan, a Japanese company, Florida motor vehicle records showand its license plate features her initials, leading the Hill to speculate that she's the one driving it. A DNC rep fired back at the news: If Republican opposition researchers are snooping around garages, they should know that if Republicanswho said that we should let the US auto industry go bankrupthad their way, they wouldnt find a single American made car anywhere.
Yes, the Vette is beautiful and a great performer. I never had a Benz so had to get one. :)
Ford Explorer. Built in either Louisville or Kansas City.
I can’t comment on Silicon Valley. I second your bet though based on what I see in Ann Arbor alone.
I won’t speak for everyone,
but I know I don’t have anything against American made cars,
I have a LOT against UNION made cars.
There are no 100% all American cars from major brands.
The vehicles with the highest percentage of “US/Canadian” parts which are assembled in the US are:
Ford Econoline 2006 95% Ohio
Ford Expedition 2007 95% Mi.
GMC Sierra 2007 90% Mi., Ind., Canada
Chevrolet Silverado 2007 90% Mi., Ind., Canada
Ford F-150 2007 90% Mi., Ky., Va.
Acura TL 2007 70% Ohio
Same percentage as GM’s Suburban, Yukon and Tahoe
and slightly behind
Ford Focus 2007 75% Mi.
In the interests of full disclosure, we have:
2004 Honda CR-V, Japanese parts, assembled in England
1997 Subaru Legacy Outback, parts & assembly in Japan
1998 Ford E-350 Club Wagon, probably >95%, Ohio
“If you build a better mousetrap, the WORLD will beat a path to your door.”
I don’t know about you folks,
but I don’t throw out a rule of thumb that is true 99% of the time because someone tells me about a one percenter.
Sorry, here is the source.
“How American is that car?”
plus she apparently pours oil all over her hair daily.
Chevrolet Corvette 2007 85% “US/Canadian parts” Assembled in Ky.
Or, D W S for dipped w/ s....
DWS is a liar. Even if General Motors and Chrysler had gone bankrupt, Ford (which didn’t need any bailout money) would still be there.
Wow, that’s news to me! I’ve never checked to door jamb. I’m in Cleveland for our granddaughter’s Christening, so I’ll check when I get home.
