    My President knows the end game and it’s him and only him may be a few senior advisors that know it. It’s a well kept secret Bin Laden style even Michelle doesn’t know it. He was very calm today and was still calling for compromise but in think he knows that’s not gonna happen and that’s my humble opinion.

    Great news. Fuel efficiency standards increasing to 54.5 MPG by 2025. Great news for cars, for the environment, and for every driver’s pocket. Thank you Mr. President.

    This is great news! One of these days in the near future, I plan to invest in a new vehicle and here in California, I want it to be as fuel efficient as possible. Reduce our carbon footprint in America! Thank you Mr. President for your forward thinking about our future!!! OBAMA/BIDEN 2012

    Our local NBC affiliate just had a good segment on the President’s announcement of the agreement about fuel efficiency. Positive and fair. Even showed pictures of him speaking, and interviews with people who are pleased.

    This is great news. I’m so happy to see this. Next car I get I’m thinking about the Prius too. My friend has one and I am coveting it.

    The Prez looks lovely, happy and in command. I think he’s just going to do what it takes regardless of Congress. I feel very safe knowing he’s guiding the ship.
