You DON'T Get What you Pay For: Obama Fails Again!

Government Motors (GM) and new CEO Barry Obama promised great things for the Chevy Volt including 232 miles per gallon (mpg), thousands of 'meaningful' green jobs, lowering of the Great Lakes, and the lifting of smog over Los Angeles. HE LIED!

With the Volt ready to roll into Obama Dealerships with a hefty price tag of over $41k and a taxpayer funded rebate of $7500, road tests by leading consumer institutes and car magazines says the 'experiment' falls far short of expectations and can't even match up with some conventional imports selling for $20k less when it comes to delivery good fuel economy.

City driving on the limited life battery provides 37.5 mpg, leisurely suburban driving about the same, and hitting the interstate trying to keep up with traffic in order not to be run over brings fuel economy down to 26 MPG...say it ain't so Barry!!!

If a 500 HP Chevy Corvette with 7 speeds can get 27MPG on the highway "why," taxpayers are asking "should we layout $41K for a shit box that can't get out of it's own way and looks like a restyled YUGO?"

Well, according to Obama Styling Chief Robert Glibb, "It's because Barry wants you to help save the planet...we all have to sacrifice, and also because daughter Malia helped design the car as part of a school project with help from Michelle's dress designer in Chicago."

R&D on the Volt is said to have cost 'millions' with no exact cost being tracked since the major disarray at GM after it's bankruptcy. "The money comes in and we just spend it,' said a spokesman for the UAW who owns 17% of the stake in the company.

Still optimistic, Marketing Maven Nancy Pelosi said GM would reach it's sales goal of producing and selling 500 of the cars in the next 12 months.

As a test driver for Auto World today said after running out of juice on a deserted highway, " Hey Dude, how & where do I plug this 'Ho be
D-Dead...what kind of CHANGE is this?"
