Why should he? You and I are probably paying for him to be chauffeured everywhere he goes.

Even a junior high reporter would ask:

Where do you live?

Where do you work?

How do you get between the two?

How do groceries get from the store to your home?

I thought he owned a Chudebaker.

In other news, Studebaker's first production vehicle was a battery powered delivery truck. It wasn't very successful either. One hundred years later, still the same problems...

All of us peasants that have to drive to work or drive for a living must take advise from some Green Wacko who doesn’t even own a car.

isn’t that convenient. He gets a government vehicle, driver, PSD everywhere he goes, fills it with govt purchased gas, govt purchased maintenance. Must be nice not having to reach into your pocket to fill the tank. And to think how many other government employees get a free car, gas and maintenance.

Why would a government "Energy Secretary" be provided limousines and security?

Why are these people, so-called "Public servants" being treated like kings and royalty?

Anyone notice, how this bloated, arrogant government employees laughs when asked if he owned a Volt?

How do these people, who are paid buckets of cash and showered with tax paid benefits, not own a car?

Why didn't the questioner asked how in hell he got to work?
