Mark Smith, AP radio, displays a look of arrogance and elitism at the conclusion of what he believes to be a "gotcha" question to President Bush "...Why have you not sir called on Americans to drive less and to turn down the thermostat?"
The president blows this buffoon out of the water with his answer.(in part)
"They're smart enough to figure out whether they are going to drive less or not. I mean you know it's interesting what the price of gasoline has done - it's caused people to drive less - that's why they want smaller cars - they want to conserve. But the consumer is plenty bright, Mark, the marketplace works...And now a local story to prove the president right (again).
It's a little presumptuous on my part to dictate to the American public how they live their lives."
“I can’t afford a car, but I can afford a scooter,” one of the ladies is quoted as saying.
Hey pic pic, this is what I mentioned in yesterday's comments. The juxtaposition of the arches proclaiming Flint as the vehicle City in the background, with two big ladies riding scooters and crossing Saginaw Street on their way to Halo Burger in the foreground. C'mon! You love it too.
