Obama: I’ll Buy A Chevy Volt After My Presidency Ends March 1, 2012 5:32 PM

Ever since Barack Obama became president in 2008, he hasn’t been given much chance to drive a car, let alone own one.

But when his presidency ends, Mr. Obama knows exactly what car he wants to buy as his post-presidential ride — a plug-in Chevrolet Volt.

“Five years from now when I’m not president anymore, I’ll buy one and drive it myself,” Obama promised 1,600 auto workers at a United Auto Workers union event in Detroit on Tuesday.

“Yes, that’s right,” he reiterated, accompanied by deafening applause.

Back in July 2010, President Obama visited the Compact Power battery plant in Holland, Michigan, where he was given his first real Volt experience.

A few weeks later, Obama visited General Motor’s Detroit Hamtramck Facility where the Volt is built. He even got a chance to sit behind the wheel of a pre-production Volt and drive it 10 feet — but due to security concerns, didn’t get much further.

“The Secret Service wouldn’t let me drive it. But I liked sitting in it,” The President told the assembled audience. “It was nice. I’ll bet it drives real good.”

After my reign as Emperor of Earth, I plan on buying a Alfa Romeo 4C GTA, a mansion and a yacht.

I'd gladly chip in to buy him one if he would gracefully exit the white house no later than January 20, 2013. And take his entourage with him.

Obama wants so badly to make his bad decisions good that he's willing to
promise anything and everything he can. Hey Obama your bullshit will not fly
anymore with the American public and you are not BJ-Clinton.

Punk.

Dear Mr. “President”,

Sheriff Joe says you may be getting a Volt quicker than you think. And a pink ankle bracelet.

Buy it now, you a$$hole, and park it outside our White House. Try to fit your skinny butt, your two kids, and your wife’s very large posterior in it, and then see if you can make it more than 25 miles from home.

What a total jackass!

I don’t think he can get a drivers license with that fake birth certificate.

The POS is certainly confident, in an arrogant, narcissistic way. But no matter,

in five years, the Volt will either be the ubiquitous equivalent of the Polska Fiat (government issued POS) or - like America the Beautiful - ancient history.

Yes. He should buy two then. One for him, and one for the Mrs.

Can you get a VALID DRIVER’S LICENSE with a forged
birth certificate? I doubt it. Who at the DMV even knows
who this creep is?

He should put in his order now. His opportunity to drive himself around will hopefully come sooner than he thinks.

He probably means that he will buy one for his daughter when she turns 16. He probably doesn’t intend to drive it himself.

I hope he doesn’t plan to stay around until they get that “car” to work.
