To show her support for American workers, President Obama’s labor secretary, Hilda Solis, has junked the standard black limo and purchased a new Chevrolet Equinox to ride around Washington in. The problem: the crossover SUV is built and assembled in Canada from parts also made in Canada. Solis proudly arrived at a media breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor today in the shiny silver vehicle, which she has dubbed the “bullet.” She was asked about why she traded the standard-issue limo for the SUV. “What better example could I set if I encouraged my staff to go and purchase and seek how we could acquire a vehicle that would for me would send a signal that we’re for supporting our American workers, American-made products, fuel efficient as well,” she told the Monitor’s Dave Cook, who provided this video of her answer.

FROM WIKIPEDIA: The Equinox is produced at the CAMI Automotive GM/Suzuki joint venture plant in Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada. The 3.4 L LNJ V6 engine is made in China (by Shanghai GM), while the Aisin AF33 automatic transmission is made in Japan. Starting with the 2008 model year, the Equinox Sport was available with a 3.6 L V6 engine that was made in the United States. LINK
I swear this is like shooting fish in a barrel. This left wing-idiot Hilda Solis is a typical liberal- lifetime bureaucrat. She has no common sense, is barely conscious and most likely can’t walk and chew gum at the same time. The Obama administration has one enormous Achilles Heel in my opinion: It’s full of incompetents chosen for their staunch ideology rather than their ability. Ironically that’s a trademark of most democrat administrations and it shows. Instead of surrounding himself with people who can make the trains run on time he hires economic officials who don’t pay their taxes for example.
It’s like a never-ending parade of morons anymore led by the ring master Joe Biden. A simple check of Wikipedia clearly disputes our esteemed labor secretary’s very premise and shows her to be a complete and utter tool. Par for the course.
We’re in trouble folks.
