This is the headline:

Obama administration withholds data on program

WASHINGTON – The Obama administration is refusing to release government records on its “cash-for-clunkers” rebate program that would substantiate — or undercut — White House claims of the program’s success, even as the president presses the Senate for a quick vote for $2 billion to boost car sales.

Imagine that! No transparency from the Obama administration. Word is they’re just too dang busy to pass along the stats.

…will have to wait for details because federal officials running the program don’t have time to turn over data delivered by car dealers…

Stats which will, apparently, show that 6 of the 10 best selling vehicles are…?…wait for it….FOREIGN. Hyundais, Toyotas and Hondas.

Imagine that.

SO what was it I found so interesting? This quote, from Monsieur Ray La Hood, Secretary of Transportation for the Obama administration.

…LaHood also said this week that even if buyers aren’t choosing cars made by U.S. automobile manufacturers, many of the Honda, Toyota and Hyundai cars sold were made in those companies’ American plants.

Well, wait a cotton pickin’ minute!!!

Didn’t we just buy GM because those plants weren’t American enough?

Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.
