Mr. Braithwaite muses……
On par with the Emperor of Rome, Nero, who fancied playing a little fiddle while his home town burned down, our supreme leader, President Barack Obama, likes to play a little golf while the biggest ecological oil spill disaster in United States history takes place off the Gulf coast of America’s back yard.
Using only averages, as precise measurements may never be known, there has been roughly 115 million gallons of oil spilled into the Gulf since the BP oil rig explosion.
With the best facts reporting that President Obama has played at least seven rounds of golf since the oil spill began, an estimate of just what kind of fuel mileage Obama is getting from his golf cart would be very enlightening – given that the President pushed really hard for mandatory fuel economy standards for America’s auto industry.
Would you believe our supreme leader’s presidential golf cart is averaging a whopping 912,698 gallons of spilled oil per hole!
And I thought electric vehicles were supposed to help reduce fuel consumption.
Maybe Obama should check the tire air pressure in Golf-Cart 1 to try and improve that dismal mileage before his next round of golf.
