Double Standard?: President's Economic Advisor Drives SUV?

While Austan Goolsbee, President Obama's Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors, was answering a question from Fox News about how consumers are supposed to deal with high gas prices he said this(1:12-1:32):

Goolsbee: "Look it's tough to deal with those costs I'm one of those consumers. $75 to fill my car the other day."

Fox News: "What kind of car do you drive?"

Goolsbee: "It's not that big of a car. But I got alot of kids."


Here is the Video:



Now I wonder what President Obama would say to his economic advisor who drives a car big enough that it takes $75 to fill the tank? (My Guess it's either a Minivan or an SUV.)

Well this is what President Obama told an everyday citizen who claimed he had 10 kids and needed a big vehicle:



Isn't it nice to know that if your an everyday American with alot of kids you get ridiculed by the President. But if your his economic advisor with alot of kids.....

Well lets just say that there may be a slight.. Double Standard.
