Another "Seniors' Moment" or Simple Incompetence?

The American media never seem to miss a chance to point out an Obama flip-flop, no matter how minor. John McCain, on the other hand, flops around like a fish hauled up on a dock and gets a pass on it.

Here's another example, one of so very many. On Friday, McCain backtracked on a campaign pledge to set aggressive, national emissions standards for automobiles. Instead he said he endorsed the right of individual states to set their own. Why? Because the old bugger was in Michigan, land of the SUV and 350 pick-ups.

Somebody probably told him they aready have stringent national standards!!!
Today's cars and trucks, even in Canada, emit only 2% of the emissions they put out in 1968 . . . fact.
Therefore . . . even if there are 20 times more vehicles today . . . they are only emitting 40% of 1968 emissions. And remember 1968 was only 6 years before the great Ice Age Scare.
An F150 emits less pollutants than a diesel powered Smart Car.

Obamawhama is an empty suit . . . delivers a great speach . . . but understands little. This is why he won't debate. What does he mean by "change" is that all you will have left in you pocket if he gets elected?

Another young lady died in the lower-mainland yesterday, driving her Honda Civic, so sad, put your kids in pickup trucks and substantial vehicles.

Cut the high cost of oil, Drill in the Arctic, Drill Offshore, now.

Well Oldschool, you've furnished the usual swill bucket of ridiculous claims, all without any source references. If anyone wants the Gospel according to you, I'll be the first to let you know.
