When there is a real car, not the Volt, Americans will accept it, but just throwing some POS at Americans won't work. We havealways had an idea of what is an acceptable vehicle for our needs, and it runs on gasoline.

I just wonder, can these people in charge of our government right now do anything right? They have failed at everything they have attempted for 3 1/2 years. Thank God they will be gone in 9 months.

There was a guy who drove around in a 1976 Old 88 car back in late 70,s....He had a special carb and set up on that car.It would get 100 miles per gallon with a 350 v-8 in a huge heavy car.....He had solid proof...After the first month of hitting county fairs he was found dead and his car gone......EVIL BIG OIL CPMPANY,S I AM SURE......Today there is no reason we dont have full size pick-ups with v-8,s that cant get 50-100 miles per gallon.....THE EVIL OIL COMPANIES CANT HAVE THAT THOUGH...

The TSA has since apologized, claiming that the agent made a mistake.

"That means folks will be able to fill up every two weeks instead of every week, saving the typical family more than $8,000 at the pump over time,"

Mr. President, if gas cost more than twice as much there's no savings but an additional cost.

Cost analysis looks at more than just the sound-bite details.

How that 'halving' the deficit going?

I wonder who retardo thinks will be buying those new cars. Maybe he is thinking it will be the record number of people that are on food stamps? Or perhaps those people collecting 99 weeks of unemployment benefits? Or maybe those that are struggling to make their house payments? Or maybe those of us who still have jobs and are getting hosed at the pumps forcing us to cut our budgets for other needed necessities such as groceries?

Are you a paid DNC troll? If you are the DNC is paying you way too much for your insane posts. BTW: Where are the papers that you said you were getting out of your "safe deposit box" to prove that you served? You said you would get them last week,still waiting.

There is no savings to be had once the new car payment and full coverage car insurance is figured in to the overall equation. Retardo is just trying to flimflam people into buying new vehicles to help out the loser car companies we bailed out.

So you hate cars that get good gas mileage???? If you could buy a pickup that got 50 mile per gallon or a car that got 100 miles per gallon and they cost about same as what we have now would you buy one????? Or do you like wasting fuel???

More spin-spin-spin from a brainless troll. BTW: Where are those papers? Strange how you forgot to say anything about that.
