Obama orders new green rules

President Obama on Tuesday announced that he was ordering his administration to develop a set of new fuel efficiency standards for trucks, buses, and other heavy-duty vehicles.

Obama did not detail specific targets for heavy-duty vehicles, but said he expected a draft proposal by March of next year, and the rule to be implemented by 2016.

While heavy-duty trucks and buses represent just 4 percent of the vehicles on the road, they generate 20 percent of the nation’s vehicular carbon pollution.
“We want trucks that use less oil, save more money, and cut pollution,” Obama said at a press event held at a Safeway distribution center in suburban Maryland, which he heralded as a leader in the bid to improve fuel economy.

The grocery chain is part of a public-private coalition designed to improve fuel efficiency through redesigning vehicles, and uses trucks with advanced aerodynamics, efficient tires, and larger trailers.

    We have a “King” that knows absolutely NOTHING about running or starting a business. And very few under him either.

    The percentage of each past president’s cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet. You know what the private business sector is; a real-life business, not a government job. Here are the percentages.

    T. Roosevelt……………….. 38%

    Taft………………………….. 40%

    Wilson ……………………… 52%

    Harding……………………… 49%

    Coolidge……………………. 48%

    Hoover………………………. 42%

    F. Roosevelt………………… 50%

    Truman……………………… 50%

    Eisenhower……………. …. 57%

    Kennedy……………………. 30%

    Johnson…………………….. 47%

    Nixon………………………… 53%

    Ford………………………….. 42%

    Carter……………………….. 32%

    Reagan………………………. 56%

    GH Bush…………………….. 51%

    Clinton …………………….. 39%

    GW Bush…………………… 55%

    Obama……………………….. 8%

    This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration: only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!

    That’s right! Only eight percent—the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents! And these people are trying to tell our big corporations how to run their business?

    How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he’s never worked for one? Or about jobs when he has never really had one?

    And when it’s the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers? They’ve spent most of their time in academia, government and/or non-profit jobs or as “community organizers.”

    They should have been in an employment line.
