    Is it just me, or is this guy making out the gas pedal thing to be a way bigger deal than it needs to be?

    just saw this.....


    WASHINGTON – Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood now says he misspoke when telling owners of recalled Toyotas to stop driving then.
    Instead, LaHood says take them to dealerships to get them repaired.
    LaHood told reporters it was "obviously a misstatement" when he told a House panel earlier Wednesday that he would advise owners not to drive recalled vehicles. The remark came during testimony to the Appropriations subcommittee on transportation.
    Toyota's most recent recall in the United States affects 2.3 million vehicles with the potential for sticking gas pedals.
