Obama and Hillary's Ethanol Flip-Flop

Michelle noted below that the Obamessiah switches cars like the FBI was tailing him, trading his stylin’ Chrysler 300 for a Ford Escape Hybrid because of political mileage concerns. He must really love those things because in August 2006, he was already driving a “Flexible Fuel Vehicle” GMC Envoy, and admits he favors SUV’s himself.

Is that just two cars, or more? Because I’m starting to see why needed that adjoining lot from Tony Rezko–parking his stable of eco-toy cornburners. Noted an Obama flack at the time of the Envoy sighting:

The SUV in question, though, is a Flexible Fuel Vehicle that can run on E85, which the Senator fills it with wherever its available (and in fact he’s worked very hard to provide tax credits to increase availability and access to e85).

But not for long, friends. Obama and Hillary have both switched gears, realizing that burning our amber waves of grain has led to food shortages and smuggling all around the globe. Here’s Obama telling NBC that he was wrong about subsidies–well, without actually saying that, of course:

“What I’ve said is, my top priority is making sure people are able to get enough to eat. If it turns out we need to make changes in our ethanol policy to help people get something to eat, that has got to be the step we take,” said Mr. Obama on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“We have rising food prices around the United States. In other countries, we’re seeing riots because of the lack of food supply, so this is something we’re going to have to deal with,” the Illinois Democrat said.

Hillary jumped on the dump-ethanol bandwagon as well:

“What we need to do is accelerate the research into farm waste and into other cellulosic plant materials. Because, I think, instead of using the corn, let’s figure out if we can use the corncob,” she said.

Well, there’s a whole new Democratic slogan right there. Please tell me there’s video.


P.S. First commenter to make a Sheryl Crow joke gets BANNED! Unless it’s really good.

BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: THIS JUST IN: Given the new-found unpopularity of ethanol, Obama and long-time supporter Bill Ayers have teamed up to announce that the Obama campaign will now travel in new hybrid SUV’s powered by burning American flags.
