    you're being misleading - you're making it sound like there isn't demand for the Volt or the leaf which is not the case. The fact is that Chevy and Nissan planned a set number of vehicles to be delivered in 2011, 10,000 in the case of Chevy and 20,000 for Nissan. In the case of Nissan the cars were all pre-ordered before production even began, and GM will deliver 10,000 units as expected.

    GM says 10,000 deliveries planned in 2011
    Nissan Leaf has 20,000 preorders<< you'll have to read for awhile to see where it says the leaf has 20,000 pre-orders.... just thought I'd mention so people don't jump down my throat when they only give the first sentence a cursory glance.

    Tens of Millions can barely even pay a 20% increase in Gasoline Alone, yet so many here want a National Sales tax of the same or Higher on Everything.

    Ruination for individuals and economy.

    Ruination.
    Since Huckabee was the only half serious presidential candidate actually proposing a national sales tax, I think that is a fairly good gauge as to how receptive most of the GOP think the people would be having to paying more, while the rich pay less.

    From the Wiki source:

    "As governor, Huntsman listed economic development, health-care reform, education, and energy security as his top priorities." Impressive!

    That and the fact that he is an Obama appointee and hasn't questioned Obama's citizenship will rule this guy out as far the GOP base goes however.

    Something like that anyway. I'm sick of a president who's idea of improving things is cramming us into socialized transportation, or onto bicycles. Our President should have bigger dreams than that for the country.
    I think things like High Speed Rail ARE Bigger and.... more intelligent dreams than putting/"cramming" everyone on the freeway at 5PM.
    Some of the best countries have it; like France, Japan, etc.

    It's not?


    No matter how much Liberals talk up electric cars and their future the fact is nobody really wants to actually own one. Chevrolet’s Volt sold a whopping 281 units in February 2011 and Nissan’s Leaf sold 67 copies. By comparison, Honda sells, on average, more than 5,500 Fits per month and Ford sold 23,111 Fusions.

    For March Chevy moved 608 Volts and Nissan sold 298 Leafs.

    For April Chevy moved 493 and Nissan sold 573 Leafs.

    Now is about the time where a Liberal would tell you that the American consumer “doesn’t understand” why they need a Volt or Leaf or how Americans can’t make “intelligent decisions” about which cars they buy. Environmentalists will chime in saying how Americans “misunderstand” the technology behind the Volt and the Leaf. President Obama will tell how how those two cars are the “future.”

    Chevrolet, which initially planned on making 60,000 Volts [Correction: 10,000-15,000 was the initial number] has revised their production numbers to only 10,000 but, at the rate they’re selling, that’s still 50% optimistic.

    With all of the billions of dollars the government pumped into Chevrolet, is it really a surprise that car is such a failure? ”Yes we can” has really become a catchphrase for “We won’t succeed” because whenever the best and brightest minds of government get together you never know how far down the ladder of failure you will fall.

    yeah, the ubercon has his hates, and a smart man with a plan is one of them...
    but the average conservative should like him for who he isn't, that being one of the current list of wannabes who are proven losers.
