    The Volt was planned, designed, and marketed under Bush. Why do cons keep blaming Obama for it? Oh, yeah. Dumb question.

    Dude, the volt was a “concept” car first unveiled in 2007 developed by GM from work done starting in the 90’s (chevy’s EV1 concept). It was developed by the private sector not the government under bush though no doubt there was some involvement through subsidies for R&D through tax breaks that any business may qualify for.

    Once the bailout occurred and we the people became shareholders in GM thus making it a government entity and the volt became President Obama’s featured vehicle it was finally released for public consumption in the US in 2010. So that is bush’s plan? Who knew bush controlled so much.?

    Everything about this cartoon is a freaking lie. Why don’t you get your facts straight?

    Obama has the push on for the independence from oil.
    Hence, that energy policy is, and will, drive gas prices up, to the point that the Volt will be the only auto option affordable to drive.
    Obamacare stresses going from a sickness healthcare, to a wellness healthcare. Hence the health system forceing the individual to an overly healthy diet, or the premiums would be higher. Also, forced exercise.
    A health system here in Ohio already stated this as part of Obamacare.

    @Ionizer

    You sure are pulling overestimated numbers out of your nether regions in a truly typical partisan fashion. Please provide the basis for your “trillion dollar bailouts.”
    And although $527 Million was wasted on Solyndra, that’s nothing compared to the amount used to subsidize big oil companies, farmers, loggers, ranchers, Boeing, and lots of other pet projects of the republicans.

    .“Just start WW3 and kill us all now.”
    That’s the republican philosophy.

    Right. If Obamacare is found to be Constitutional (which it is NOT), then what’s to stop the government from mandating that we do everything in this cartoon and more? Apparently, to liberal lawmakers, we’re too stupid to take care of ourselves, but we’re “smart” enough to elect them???

    I keep hearing that some how the big bad oil companies are “subsidize” when in fact Obama wants to do away with “tax subsidies” that any industry can take advantage of.
    The Volt on the other hand has been bought and paid for buy mommy government at almost every stage. From the grants and tax breaks for the batteries, to the free over blown publicity for no other reason that it was new and different. When one looks at the true cost vs retail you get a almost 100% mark up and mommy government still gives a cash rebate for the “all electric” car.
    Of course one could also say the same thing about Obama.

    The fuss about the “individual mandate” is a prime example of the hyper-partisanship of republicans, and a kind of hypocrisy that verges on insanity.
    The “individual mandate” was originally proposed and supported by republicans, and was used to counter the universal health care plan of Clinton.

    Obama adopted it to get bi-partisan support for his plan.
    Now, suddenly, it’s a case of liberals and big government. What a laugh. Of course it’s unconstitutional, but it’s just another case of republican intrusion into people’s lives.

    No one is going to mandate Volts and carrot juice. Cons are always crying about some unrealistic thing they just made up.

    “No one is going to mandate Volts and carrot juice. Cons are”

    So what is all this hype about mandating more and more MPH??? Here is what gets me. Gas provides the biggest punch, smallest package and until now cheapest. Yet libs think they can change the laws of thermodynamics by demanding higher and higher miles per gallon. sorry but we may have topped out on that front for the most part.

    I will leave the carrot juice mandate to the 1st lady.

    MX missile, Grenada, Panama, Afghanistan (creating the Taliban, then wars), Iraq, V-22, F-22, mortgage crisis through deregulation, credit card ripoffs, two decades of inflation and debt increases, corporate failures while CEOs walk off with “golden parachutes”, Katrina, eliminating ALL envrionmental laws, failure to collect royalties on TAXPAYER’’s oil in the Gulf and on land, yup, that “Reaganomics” and “Republican leadership” under Mitt, or Santorum, or Newt, is something we really need.

    How exactly do higher fuel standards harm you?
    “Thirteen auto manufacturers and the United Auto Workers union are in favor of the plan,[to increase epa fuel mileage standards] including Chrysler, Hyundai and the Ford Motor Company.

    And as fuel economy increases, you actually save money over the life of your car, even though it costs more to purchase it initially.
    If you’re morally opposed to saving money, because of your religion or whatever, you can always just burn your cash in your fireplace.

    MPH requirements have been going up for the last thirty years or so, not exactly new, all though the latest requirements may not be possible to achieve.
