Barack Obama wants to talk about the Issues That Matter.
Issues like John McCain’s inability to send e-mail.
And issues like…the McCain family’s cars:
Democrat Barack Obama’s campaign hit Republican John McCain today over his family’s ownership of foreign cars, saying it would air a TV ad in Michigan highlighting McCain’s statements on buying American.
But the ad, which accuses McCain of misleading Michigan voters by saying he’s bought American vehicles “literally all my life,” doesn’t say that of the 13 vehicles owned by the McCain family, only one is registered to McCain himself – a 2004 Cadillac CTS built in Lansing.
The 12 other vehicles include a 2005 Volkswagen convertible, a 2001 Honda sedan, a 2007 Ford half-ton pickup and three Gem neighborhood electric vehicles – essentially road-worthy golf carts built by a Chrysler subsidiary.
All part of Obama’s laughable “Buy American” posturing.
The Democrats will spread the word about this Issue That Matters with two events in Michigan today to “highlight the McCain’s family vehicles, as well as events in Missouri and Wisconsin.”
Just a reminder of what Obama was driving before he was hoisted by his enviro-sanctimonious petard. From May 2008:

There he goes again. Barack Obama is lambasting Detroit’s Big 3 automakers again for manufacturing SUVs. He attacked the car companies over the weekend for making the “mistake” of investing in SUVs and large trucks instead of producing more fuel-efficient vehicles. Obama also bragged about his Big 3- bashing speech a year ago that delivered “the kind of truth-telling we need from the next president.”
A truth-telling reminder of the gas-guzzling car Obama himself was driving before eco-hypocrisy caught up with him:
Output: 340 hp, 390 lb-ft
EPA fuel economy, city/highway: 17/25 (17/24 AWD)
His fancy wheels got less than the standard 27 mpg that he now whines is too low.
After his do-as-i-say-ism was exposed, he traded in his beast for a Ford Escape Hybrid.
But on the campaign trail, to this day, it’s still the bigger the better.
Obama’s eco-hypocrisy emission standard: High.
