Hypocrisy They Name Is Obama

Hypocrisy: The practice of professing beliefs, feelings or virtues that one does not hold or possess; falseness.

Obama left in a GMC Envoy after admitting to favoring SUV's himself

Do as I say, not as I do

The SUV in question, though, is a Flexible Fuel Vehicle that can run on E85, which the Senator fills it with wherever its available

Obama says though that it's ok if he drives an SUV because it can be filled with E85 fuel, which he does on occasion.

You would think with SUV's and Trucks being the favored vehicle of gun-toting, bible clutching, rasicts, average americans he wouldn't want anything to do with them.

I don't even know what E85 IS, but I trust you that he's a raging hypocrite. ;)

E85 is a mixture of 15% gasoline & 85% ethanol, which burns "cleaner".

The stuff burns too hot for normal engines, though, so it can only be put in cars specially designed for it.

It's also the reason corn-based food products are getting more expensive.

Harv, it's not just corn based foods. Beef and poultry eat corn, those prices are going up. Since there is a large subsidy on the ethanol agribusiness is planting corn instead of wheat and soybeans so those prices go up. And the gawdawful amounts of water to make the ethanol...
