“You might want to think about a trade-in”

Obama continues his tin-ear efforts to convince us to buy $41,000 Chevy Volts. And to switch to the rainbows-and-unicorns energy policies that will result in us walking rather than riding in cars.

As reported at the Washington Examiner, Obama jokingly tells a questioner

“If you’re complaining about the price of gas and you’re only getting 8 miles a gallon, you know,” Obama said laughingly. “You might want to think about a trade-in.”

Got that, you rube? Not that many vehicles short of half-tracks get only eight miles per gallon, but the essential point is that, contra Obama, if you can’t afford to fill up your tank, how, exactly, can you pony up lots of green for a greener car?

Obama’s energy policy is to lie, and tell us he’s helping us while he actually helps OPEC and, most recently, Brazil. Brazil, where Obama was eager to provide loan guarantees worth $2 billion while wanting to import more from them.

As for developing still-plentiful oil resources here at home, a few points made at the Examiner:

 
I think Obama is right that we might want to think about a trade in. Come November 2012, that is.
