Obama Wants Auto Industry to Fail

Obambi signed orders on Monday that will destroy the auto industry.

And yet Obama went ahead with orders to the Environmental Protection Agency to review whether California and other states should be allowed to set their own emissions standards. The EPA is expected to quickly grant the states that power, something the Bush administration opposed. (emphasis mine, but remember that Obambi voters)

California has repeatidly said they plan on raising fuel rates high and quickly.

That will place the automakers at the mercy of the most environmentally goofy states -- such as California and Vermont -- and subject them to regulations that vary across the country. For example, California's standard would translate to 44 miles per gallon in 2020 compared with the federal standard of 35 mpg.

These impossible to meet in the time frame allowed regulations will add at least $5,000 and upto $15,000 to a new car. How is the auto industry or even america suppose to recover when you are pricing the middle class out of buying new cars?

And Obambi had the balls to say he doesn't want to further burden the auto industry, well dickhead what do you think you just did? Oh yea, he said he wants to help prepare them for the future, what future?

And of course Pelosi claims the California rules will steer the auto industry towards innovation and greener cars. These people have no fucking clue what the auto industry has been doing for the last decade. Might I remind you of who will be the first to bring out an electric vehicle (um GM).

California plans on sticking it to the auto industry, but refuses to be stuck themselves.

Not only does Schwarzenegger, faced with a massive state budget deficit, want Obama's EPA to allow his state to regulate greenhouse gases. The governor this month demanded that job-creating infrastructure projects be exempt from reviews required by the California Environmental Quality Act and rules under the National Environmental Policy Act, according to Energy & Environment Daily.

So it's only good for the environment if it doesn't cost money to California.

Oh Machelle, don't worry. This is all so easy. Electric cars will work just fine, as soon as we rebuild our already overburdened grid.

If electric won't work there is hydrogen, except we don't have enough power to make the hydrogen or the means to transport it.

And we can always brew more ethanol, after all, if we are going to abort more babies we won't need food.

Democrats are just so smart.
