Lets get back to the facts:
the obamamobile equals $20 billion already lost by taxpayers on the bailout...
#2936 Mar 21, 2013
That's very true...
and at its current sales pace it would take over 1,000 years just to pay them back.

There is a guy on this thread who keeps saying my hero is Joseph Goebbels, who said that if you repeat a lie loud enough ..... blah, blah, blah, blah.
But his little buddy Petey keeps repeating the lie "Obamamobile". He has said it at least 50 times since page 1. It has been shown that Obama wanted to kill the Volt program, and that he didn't sign the credits and subsidies. You know he has read the links. Yet, he keeps repeating.
So, it just goes to prove that Joseph Goebbels was wrong, cuz .... nobody believes Petey. Not even Wifey.

This is good reading. There is much more than this.

All of the above are blamed on Obama.

Oh, it goes way back. Nissan & Toyota were started by the Japanese government because US cars dominated Japan. They hoot and howl about GM & Chrysler being bailed out (Ford was bailed out in 2006), and they don't even know that not only have Nissan & Toyota been subsidized all this time, but they started out as official government companies.
They have both been subsidized since then.
This is from the above link:
"HISTORY OF JAPANESE CAR MAKERS: The car market in Japan was monopolized by the American companies until the passage in Japan of the Automobile Act in 1936 when both Nissan and Toyota were created as official car companies. "
This is good reading for those who want to know the truth about car history.

Why not, you can re-brand it the "Volt II"
#2953 Mar 26, 2013
Who cares what Japan does with their taxpayers money, I don't want my money wasted on Toyotas, Datsuns, or Volts
#2954 Mar 26, 2013
Dont be a dolt. Why arent you squealing about the tax money we just gave the Palestinians? I would much rather see my tax money used here at home.
#2955 Mar 26, 2013
#2956 Mar 26, 2013
The Dolt spent 1/35,000 of a dollar on my Volt,(one time). But I spent $200 (each year) to keep his gas tank full. He thinks he's got the short end of the stick.
Oh my!!! Terrorists are killing our troops with our oil money.
If the Dolt doesn't drive an American car, he is driving a car subsidized by US tax dollars. All foreign cars built and sold in this country are subsidized by US tax dollars.
I pay tax dollars to subsidize his gas.
$1/35,000 of a dollar ..... once. I couldn't shave a fleck off of a penny small enough to send it to the dolt to pay him back. Wonder if he'll be willing to send me $200 a year I spend to keep his car running. Doubt it.
