    Last week Obama bragged about the Chevy Volt, how nice it was, how he was gonna buy one when he gets out of office in 5 years. I thought to myself, how does he know this thing will be around then? Well it may not be around if he loses in November.

    Yes, I have also read from an article that the Volt has struggled in gaining acceptance due to its relatively steep price tag. The lack of an infrastructure of charging stations as well as the necessity of installing a home charging station have also kept many new customers away. Not to mention the inconvenience of waiting the 10 hours it requires to get the car fully charged from the home 120-volt station. Another Volt production halt announced

    $41,000 and stranded sans green power.

    That could be bad in mountains in winter, deserts in summer, and rush hour on a 7-lane freeway in Get-outta-my-way-land! <gulp>

    Which Pelosi/Reid/Clinton/Obama/Senate/Representative relative gets all his/her money back this time while taxpayers get stuck for 100% of the tab?

    :eek:
