The Volt is a Dolt?

April 24th, 2012

Inspired by The Ed Show’s report on right-wing opposition to the Chevy Volt, and how that pisses off the Republican who developed it.

 

“I got to get inside a brand new Chevy Volt fresh off the line, and five years from now when I’m not President anymore I’ll buy one and drive it myself.” – President Obama at the Chevy Volt plant in February

 

“It’s not just me, it is now official: the Volt is a dolt. You hear me all you bloggers? It stinks!” — Neil Cavuto

 

Obama likes it, so Fox News says it’s bad,

Which makes the Republican who developed it mad.

 

Unfortunately for Fox, the car they hate

Just happens to be doing great.

Here’s Ed’s 4/24/12 report, including a video montage of Fox New disparagement of the Chevy Volt, and an interview with Bob Lutz, the GM Senior VP who led Volt development, and also happens to be a Republican. One thing that I did find somewhat disappointing, Mr. Lutz, is your belief that conservatives are right on everything else, but wrong on this (at the 5” mark). Why would you assume they’re any more honest on other issues than they are on this one?
