Change We Can Believe In

The Obama White House just doubled fuel efficiency requirements for new cars.

The White House on Tuesday announced it had finalized new fuel-efficiency standards for American-made passenger cars and light trucks, requiring that new models for 2025 achieve an average fuel efficiency of 54.5 miles-per-gallon.

That amount would more than double the current average fuel economy, 25.2 miles-per-gallon as of 2012, according to the Department of Transportation, which enforces the standards and worked on the new fuel economy requirements with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the major U.S. automakers.

Progress! We need to do more, though.

    Arrrggh, how dare you socialist enviro-nutjobs force Amurricans to save money on gas (sorry, I mean “petrol”, right Euro commies)?

    These companies are trying their best to sell the most fuel-wastin’est, pollutin’est gas-guzzlin’ cars ever and these damn REGULATIONS won’t let them. It’s the god-given right of every American (except lefties and Messicans and food stampin’ welfare queens) to buy shitty merchandise!

    Freedom! Job-creators! Long form certificate! USA! USA! USA!

    But…but…drones! Bradley Manning! He’s just like Bush! He’s not a real Black leader!

    …Sooner or later, people _have_ to realize that there are VAST differences between Obama and Romney. This is one of many. And if they can’t see the differences, f**k ‘em.

    No doubt Romney has already added that to the list of things he’s going to “get rid of” (Planned Parenthood RomneyObamacare, DADT) on Day One.
