But that's not deterring Obama from dismantling US energy and wasting billions on niche greenie companies.
Obama issued over $5 billion in tax credits and subsidies to promote all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, not to mention more billions on failed solar, battery and wind technologies.
Yet electric cars accounted for less than one half of one percent of the 11.7 million light vehicles purchased in the U.S. during the last nine months.
In 2011 the failure-in-chief predicted the U.S. would “become the first country to have a million electric vehicles on the road by 2015”. Guess what? Despite a $7,500 federal tax credit and a price drop in August, GM sold 16,760 Volts so far this year. And last year GM sold even fewer.
Wonder who bought a GM volt? Well, given the brain damage liberals suffer from, you can bet the bulk of these blundering bricks are burning down garages mainly in San Francisco. After all, federal subsidies line rich liberal pockets just as well as anyone else's right?
