Oh Canada

Just in time for Labor Day, obama's Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis traded in her government-issue black limo for a Chevrolet Equinox to signal "that we're for supporting our American workers (and) American-made products (that are) fuel efficient as well."
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."
The problem with that statement is that the Equinox is made in Canada by Canadians from parts that are also made in Canada.
The car is made at two Canadian plants and has been so popular that General Motors has been hiring more workers in Canada to keep up with demand.
In her defense, Solis is just following in the footsteps of her boss, whose chose a Canadian-made bus for his recent propaganda campaign jobs tour of the Midwest.

Canucklehead Obama bus-ted!
President Obama is barnstorming the heartland to boost US jobs in a taxpayer-financed luxury bus the government had custom built -- in Canada...

The $1.1 million vehicle (is) one of two that Quebec-based Prevost sold the government...
I can't decide if incidents like these indicate the obama administration's incompetence or its hypocrisy ... or both.
