Honors continue to roll in for President Barack Obama.
Less than a week after receiving the Nobel Peace Prize, President Obama got the checkered flag today as he was honored with induction into the inaugural NASCAR Hall of Fame.
President Obama's induction was a surprise to some, but not if you look closely at his merits.
President Obama is solely responsible for talking about saving the automotive industry in the United States. Without his rhetoric, General Motors would have went bankrupt, the Pontiac brand would have been scrapped and thousands of automotive industry jobs would have been lost.
President Obama's administration is also pushing for complete government takeover of NASCAR in 2010.
One of the changes the administration hopes to implement are completely electric cars, which will save thousands of gallons of gas.
Going electric will also quiet the cars significantly, which will completely eliminate tinnitus (ringing) of the ears at each event. This directly helps lowers cost for the nation's soon to be government-controlled health care.
And finally, President Obama is opening up all NASCAR teams to illegal aliens. The hope is that the illegal immigrants will work for little to nothing, which will offset the administration's 30 percent increase in taxes on the wealthy companies who advertise on the sides of the cars.
The five other inductees included Dale Earnhardt, Richard Petty, Junior Johnson, Bill France, Sr. and Bill France, Jr.
