People Are Trading In Their "Clunkers" For Green Friendly Cars SUVs And Trucks

Lies, Damn Lies and shit the Obama Administration says.

The government's results showed small cars as the top choice for shoppers looking for Cash for Clunker deals. But an independent analysis by Edmunds.com disputed those results, and showed that two full-size trucks and a small crossover SUV were actually among the top-ten buys.

The discrepancy is a result of the methods used. Edmunds.com uses traditional sales measurements, tallying sales by make and model. The government uses a more arcane measurement method that subdivides models according to engine and transmission types, counting them as separate models.

For example, the Ford Escape is available in six different versions including two- and four-wheel drive and hybrid versions. The government counts each version as a different vehicle using guidelines from the Environmental Protection Agency. Only the front wheel drive, non-hybrid version made the government's top ten list.

It's almost as if people like things other than what Nanny Barrack wants them to like. Just who the hell do these people think they are?

But hey, $2 Billion more is on the way.

With so much cash floating around...everything must go!
