As was the case before the election season ever started, the only thing worse for Obama's numbers than himself loose on a stage is Michelle out there doing her Obamaphone lady dance. What we spend on luxury accommodations for her and hair/makeup may be the best spent public dollars in all of our history, certainly a clear winner over the auto bailouts.

Right. At least there is a practical limit to self-aggrandizement.

If Cutter is an alpha emitter, Axe is now a gamma source of nova-level output.
Dash put it well although it sounds like a Romney line. "I don't want the next four years to be like the last four years." If that is a product of the campaign, it is quite a good one.
So the government can NOT, actually, get the children to eat their peas. The solution is simple: they shall get ONLY peas until they have cleaned their plate. If only we weren't so short of peas.
Not much meat on this article regarding the fraudulent nature of Volt "sales". Before you get into the ACTUAL cost of getting one of these novelties out of the factory you have to account for the forced nature of the sales (many are fleet sales to GE and others) and the current state of these vehicles. It is known as "channel stuffing". If you want to make your numbers perk up, offer incentives to dealers to take cars (or punishments if they refuse to order them). Even these half-a33ed figures for the Volt are fictitious. Check zerohedge.com for the details. Searching "Volt" will produce enough dissection of this latest mendacity to make Joe Biden puke.
The combustion car's heat is excess heat from the engine so it is essentially free. The electric car has what amounts to a hair dryer in the dash. Yes, that is a demanding little gadget. Air conditioning is likewise run from the Volt's batteries where in a gas car it draws compressor torque from the already spinning crank. Yes, that draws gas too but you will never get more than a couple miles in a Volt or Leaf with anything like cold AC as we used to have.
It's collusion. The Greens and the Reds are indistinguishable because in both cases their claimed intentions are immaterial to their true aims. It's loot and nothing but. The excuses are varied. The ends coincide. Don't excuse the unions (the coerced unions anyhow). Don't excuse the enviros. Don't excuse the welfare pimps or the educrats. It is all the same thing. It is socialism. It must end.
The Chevy Halt! That is genius. Reminds me of when they tried selling the Nova in Mexico, ignorant that no va means "no go" en espanol.
Well said. Now that the American socialists have run out of other people's money, the tapeworms are turning on each other. It is the only way this ends so it is, sadly, the best news one can hope for.
