North Korean rocket still worked better than Obama’s Chevy Volt

The North Korean rocket traveled 100 miles before failing.

That’s three times longer than Obama’s Chevy Volt, which Popular Mechanics reports travels just 33 miles per charge.

Parody ad skewers the failing, flammable, expensive Obama Volt

Posted on February 29, 2012 by Donald Ferguson

A new parody of the ad for the hideously expensive, poor-selling and oft-flammable Chevy Volt mocks the vehicle’s massive government subsidies, its habit of bursting into flames and its ties to Barack Obama.

Go here to see the ad on YouTube, where it has already racked up over 300,000 views.  That’s about how many taxpayer dollars it costs to produce just one Volt.

Obama’s Chevy Volt the most taxpayer-supported car ever at $250K each

Posted on December 21, 2011 by Donald Ferguson

Reason magazine has the story.  Go here to read all the details.

If you’ve been revolted by the fact that every $40,000 electric Chevy Volt sold by Government Motors enjoys a $7,500 rebate at the expense of taxpayers, then better have some Dramamine before you read any further. James Hohman of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy has calculated that the total subsidies—direct and indirect, federal and state—poured into this white elephant could add up to $3 billion or $250,000 for every Volt sold to date…

Obama admin suppressed information on potentially deadly Volt fires

Posted on December 8, 2011 by Donald Ferguson

Despite holding information showing the Obama-mandated Chevy Volt electric car had in at least one case burst into flames three weeks after a crash test, both government-controlled General Motors and the Obama administration refused to disclose the potentially deadly defect,” Autoguide reports.

Joan Claybrook, a former adminstrator at NHTSA, tells Autoguide she believes the Obama administration did not release the information because of the “fragility of Volt sales.”

According to Claybrook the “NHTSA could have put out a consumer alert” and “not to tell them [customers] for six months makes no sense to me.”

“As a result the public relations nightmare surrounding Chevy’s halo vehicle appears to be deepening, though a good deal of the blame in this case also rests with NHTSA,” Autoguide reports.

The fire was caused by a defect in the toxic metal battery’s cooling system.  General Motors sold the Obama-mandated vehicle to the public for six months before finally coming up with a procedure to power down the battery after a crash.

It’s no secret Barack Obama wanted the Chevy Volt rolled out as soon as possible to score a political victory.  Did Obama pressure General Motors to sell a vehicle they all knew was a potential deadly fireball?,” said American Tradition Partnership Executive Director Donald Ferguson.

Chevy offers to buy back exploding Obamamobiles

Posted on December 2, 2011 by Donald Ferguson

“General Motors will buy Chevrolet Volts back from any owner who is afraid the electric cars will catch fire, the company’s CEO said Thursday,” the Associated Press reports.

“Three fires have broken out in Volts after side-impact crash tests done by the federal government.  Akerson said that if necessary, GM will recall the more than 6,000 Volts now on the road in the U.S. and repair them once the company and federal safety regulators figure out what caused the fires,” the AP reports.

Thankfully there aren’t many of the Obama-mandated death traps to recall.  Chevy sold only 1,139 Volts in November and will miss its annual sales goal of 10,000 cars by almost 4,000.  Most of the cars that did sell were bought by, you guessed it, the government.

Despite pathetic sales and a lack of interest, and now the threat of the cars bursting into flames, government-controlled General Motors has dictated an inexplicable increase in Volt production.
