Obama’s automobile hypocrisy

I really dislike hypocrisy in politicians. Many, like the President, will tell the rest of us to do one thing while they do something else. Obama’s limo is a good example. In the video below, he explains why he can have a hybrid limo. His answer is that the Secret Service says that a hybrid’s performance isn’t good enough. That’s funny, because he’s willing to foist a new fuel economy mandate on Americans that will lead to more traffic deaths, but he doesn’t want to reduce his own safety.
