    Actually, that's Democrats reacting to how they successfully swindled the taxpayers out of billions of dollars for a car no one wants.

    I'd take the M5, and use the money I save for gas, chicken strips and contributions to the ACLU.

    I wonder how many tens of billions in subsidies Toyota and Nissan continue to receive from the Japanese government.

    I just thought they were a group of Caucasians enjoying themselves.

    I'm going to buy a Malibu for $20K and send the extra $20K to Obama to pay down the debt.

    A car that has to be plugged in all the time? What a slut.

    The Volt is the automotive equivalent of a 1980s brick phone or projection big-screen TV. As the technology improves, the price will come down and performance will improve, just as it has with cell phone and TV technology.

    When I was a kid the space program had Atlas and Redstone rockets. Some blew up on the test pad or shortly after liftoff, but we didn't cancel the space program when they did. We built better, more efficient rockets, and eventually reached the moon. The same will happen with electric or hydrogen-powered cars.

    Of course, if you incorporate the GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIES (opening a whole new can of worms!) that cost goes down to about $400 a month.
