    On January 26, 2012, President Obama visited a Las Vegas UPS plant. Stimulus subsidy for said UPS plant to purchase natural-gas-powered trucks: 5.6 million dollars. Stimulus subsidy for North Las Vegas green energy plant that laid off 200 workers yesterday: 5.9 million dollars. Using taxpayer dollars to leave an event promoting clean-energy vehicles in a motorcade of twenty-two fossil-fueled vehicles: Priceless.

    It's time to end all energy subsidizes, and let average Americans, like the President does, select the fuel they want, free of government interference.

    NRDC: Press Release - President Obama's Motorcade Tonight Will Make History

    Maybe Al Gore can sell Obama some carbon credits for his Vegas trip.

    Oh I see. You wanted Obama to use electric or hybrid cars. Ok, and which cars would you recommend he use? I'd love to see a list of bullet proof electric vehicles he could choose from.

    You can't. It's simple physics. The material needed to bullet proof a car weighs so much that an electric engine can't move it.

    Or are you suggesting you want to President in a non bullet proof car?
