From the President's propaganda machine: Here we are, ready for TGIF and President Obama hits us with his energy strategy. Hey, I have been waiting for this for a long time. Surely, it's the right direction, and many agreed with that at the start of the first term. So here we are on Friday night March 15, 2013 with a big push.
Now, Mr. President, I can just convince you to address energy strategy in the context of sustainable economics, we are cruising.
Take a look at the picture post where I share the President’s graphics cut into two pieces so you can see them.
“How we shift America off oil
America's auto industry is in the midst of a change for the better. Right now, car dealers are offering customers twice as many hybrids as they were five years ago and seven times as many cars that can go 40 miles or more on a gallon of gas. Last year, General Motors sold more hybrid cars than ever before and Ford is working hard to keep up with demand for its fuel-efficient vehicles.
That trend is a key example of how innovation helps to drive business success -- and creates jobs for the middle class in America. But it's one thing to make a car more fuel efficient. It's another thing altogether to move cars and trucks off oil entirely.”
