President Obama gets the Escape Hybrid by Ford

Barack Obama (President) does not drive so much by itself these days, but he traded recently in his 300 from Chrysler on a Escape Hybrid by Ford. Apparently Obama prefers greatly his brand new ride to the old one, giving the Escape Hybrid model a ringing endorsement on the economy on fuel standards announcement.

After announcing an all-new standard of 35.5 mpg the President an offhand plug for his Escape Hybrid unit. 'By the way, I just want to mention, I think I still have my Ford parked in Chicago' affirmed Obama. 'It’s a Ford hybrid, it runs great, you guys should take a look'.

Alan Mulally Ford CEO was quite happy about the plug, but... all the other 9 (in attendance) car execs were not that thrilled. Realizing quickly his bias comment, Obama continued: 'But there are also some outstanding hybrids and energy-independent cars represented up here, so I didn’t want to just advertise for one' Detroit Free Press reported.
