“Buy America” for thee but not for me?

(H/T: Doug Powers) “Mr. LaHood, there are some UAW people here and they’d like to have a chat with you…

Remember U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood a short time back, when he encouraged us to “Buy America?”

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood today unveiled a new U.S. Department of Transportation ‘Buy America’…

Remember, “The Obama Administration is making historic investments in America’s infrastructure–investments that lay the foundation for our long-term economic health while creating good-paying jobs right now,” LaHood said…

Well, apparently, “Buy America” is not a concept Secretary LaHood felt ready to adopt in his own household.

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said today that he told his daughter to buy a Japanese car–a Toyota Sienna–and that she did so.

So, yes. It’s a “Do as I say, not as I do” situation.
