Obama and the Volt - The Funniest Thing This Week

On Tuesday, President Obama at a United Auto Workers conference, siad that he would buy a Chevy Volt after he left office. Obama's exact words were: “Five years from now, when I’m not president any more, I’ll buy one and drive it myself.” Obama was at the conference to cater to one of his core constituencies, Unions, and really spun the facts as to the effects of the taxpayer funded bailout of General Motors, which was really just a bailout of the union.

What's so funny about this? Just a day after Obama's speech, GM announced that they were suspending Volt production and laying off something like 1,300 workers. Talk about embarassing!! At least it would be embarassing to anyone else. But I think Obama was born without the ability feel shame and he deals with those pesky little embarassing moments by blaming someone, usually Bush, for America's troubles.

Remember Obama's goals of seeing a million electric cars on the road by 2015? Well, he is certainly on his way to meeting that goal with the 9,000 Volts that have been sold....only 900,000 some odd to go!

One more thing Mr President, won't have to wait five years to buy one. You'll be needing your own transportation come January 2013 when you leave the White House. Unless of course you have to take public transportation since your driver's license went the same way as you and your wife's law license's,......revoked.

The image of President Obama sitting in a Chevy Volt is priceless. Obama and that failed unit is a metaphor for his presidency.
