Obama knows what people want so he will force them to have it.

“You can’t just make money on SUVs and trucks. There is a place for SUVs and trucks, but as gas prices keep on going up, you have got to understand the market. People are going to try to save money.”

President Obama is seriously talking about “the market” here? If he knew the first thing about “the market”, he would know that term typically implies the free market. In the free market consumers make choices. If consumers freely choose to buy more small cars, then automakers will make more small cars. If consumers freely choose to buy an SUV because, say they have three or four kids or dogs or kids and dogs, and realize it is more fuel efficient to take one vehicle rather than two, they might freely choose that instead. Or consumers may freely choose to drive an SUV because they like it better and do not mind that they freely chose to pay more for gas. That is what the free market does. It freely chooses what meets its needs and desires. Your dictated decrees by force, often seen as regulations, such as emissions standards, run exactly opposite of the free market you are attempting to attach yourself to Mr. President. If you do not realize that, well, it explains quite a bit about our economy.
