    The following would be funny if the irony wasn't so sad. Quite possibly the most divisive president we've had, one who routinely does what he wants and tells everyone else to shut up and like it wants new license plates to make a political statement.

    :BangHead:

    To make it even worse he should demand that all congressional vehicles have the same plate, since they don't listen to the people either.



    "The White House says President Barack Obama's limousine will soon carry the District of Columbia's "Taxation Without Representation" license plate.

    The White House says Obama has lived in D.C. for four years and has seen how patently unfair it is for families to work hard, raise children and pay taxes, without having a vote in Congress. The White House said Tuesday that Obama's official vehicles will begin using the symbolic license plates during the inauguration this weekend."

    The strategy is to draw attention to the fact that DC has no representatives in Congress and to push for them to get (at least) a House member. There is a 99% chance that any House member from DC would be a Democrat, so in this way Obama can secure at least one more seat in House.

    I know the practical side of this. My point was the irony of the slogan used and the move itself in light of his other blatant hypocrisy. Don't worry, I don't expect you to see it.

    I see it. You think that his invoking of Executive Orders is government action without representation, yet he's going to ride around in secure luxury with a slogan on his limo saying his home town is not being represented.

    Roger that, got it.

    The answer is either make DC a state, or give it back to Maryland.
