Here's the "news":

With President Barack Obama showing the ailing U.S. auto industry some tough love Monday, POLITICO wondered -- what's in the driveways of White House aides? A lot of foreign cars, as it turns out...The lot was sprinkled with BMWs, Mercedes, Hondas, Toyotas, Saabs, Audis, Volkswagens and a Volvo.

Here's how the item would have made sense [emphasis added]:

With President Barack Obama showing the ailing U.S. auto industry some tough love Monday, and urging everybody to buy American cars, POLITICO wondered -- what's in the driveways of White House aides? A lot of foreign cars, as it turns out.

But Obama didn't do that, so the item's pretty much pointless. Also, aren't lots of BMW's, Mercedes, Hondas and Toyotas, y'know, made in America these days?
