I did not read all that but I am holding onto it to read over time.

I hope they did not forget Obama’s successful economic strategy in playing the part of the car czar. That cash for clunkers, where perfectly good vehicles were destroyed and could not be broken down for parts, was doozy. I saw a beautiful corvett destroyed. People sure were helped by turning in their cars that were paid up for a new car they bought on credit, too. This was especially benefitial in light of the personal debt problems facing Amerians./s/

The Chevy Volt has been a smashing success for government motors, too!
