This administration loves Canada. They push Canadian-style health care. Obama buys Canadian built buses to campaign around in and now his idiotic, illegal immigrant protecting Labor Secretary gets caught driving a Canadian-built Chevrolet while speaking about supporting American workers.
Does this administration know how to vet the items they push?
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 theChristian 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’sDave Cook, who provided this video of her answer.
Solis added that she was inspired to buy the Chevy because of the pride she saw in American auto workers during trips to U.S. car and truck plants. She said that she was wowed by “the pride that they take making our automobiles here in America.”
A company official noted that the profits do come back to the United States.
This is the most clueless administration in U.S. history.
