Obama Labor Boss Buys Canadian-Built Car

Labor Secretary Hilda Solis has junked the standard black limo and purchased a shiny new GM Chevrolet Equinox to make her DC rounds.  She assumed it was made in the USA.

The problem: GM SUV is built and assembled in Canada from parts also made in Canada.

"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," Solis said incoherently to Dave Cook of the Christian Science Monitor.

Solis has visited U.S. car and truck plants. She said she was wowed by "the pride that they take making our automobiles here in America."  Nice speech, and nice Canadian made car.

Obama has hired some of the most ardent and incompetent staff of all presidents, and it shows.

Obama's Labor Secretary is as dense as they come, and just as ideological, shocking 

When Solis' office was notified the car was Canadian, a spokesman shot back a lengthy prepared statement that began “Modern automobile manufacturing is a global industry...".  Oh, okay, that clears it up.  Never-mind.
