Obama Auto Team Drives Foreign Cars

This might go a long way to help explain the struggles of the Big Three American automobile manufacturers.

Most of the limousine liberals Barack Obama brought in to help salvage what's left of the U.S. automakers drive foreign-made cars, according to The Detroit News.

That's right. Sixteen of the 18 people advising Obama on the future of the auto industry drive foreign cars or don't even own a car.

From The Detroit News:
Steve Rattner, the managing partner of a $6 billion New York hedge fund who will lead the Treasury Department's auto efforts, has three imports and one domestic vehicle.

He owns a 2008 Lexus LS 460 sedan, a 2007 Audi S4 convertible, a 2006 Mercedes-Benz R350 sport-utility vehicle and a 2005 Lincoln Town Car, according to public records.

The co-chairs of the task force -- Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner and White House National Economic Council Director Lawrence Summers -- both own foreign automobiles.

Geithner owns a 2008 Acura TSX, registered in New York. He once owned a 1999 Honda Accord and a 2002 Acura MDX, according to public records.
Read the full story, "Auto team drives imports" at the newspaper's Web site.

When you stop and think about it, this makes perfect sense in Obamaworld. This is the president brought in a treasury secretary who didn't pay his taxes to run the IRS.
