Another week, another car talk. Barack Obama stopped by a North Carolina truck factory on Wednesday to announce $1bn in tax credits and grants for alternative-energy cars and trucks. It was Obama's third speech on cars and fuel in an election battleground state in three weeks.
The president has travelled from New Hampshire to Florida and now North Carolina to insulate himself from Republican attacks on rising gas prices and the on-again, off-again Keystone XL tar sand pipeline ahead of the general election.
"We can't just keep on relying on the old ways of doing business. We can't just rely on fossil fuels from the last century. We've got to continually develop new sources of energy," Obama said in his speech at the Daimler truck plant in Mount Holly North Carolina.

In our Presidents case, “It’s a shame that stupidity isn’t painful”!

Isn’t it nice to campaign on the tax-payer dime and promise tax payer money to potential voters?
He’s literally robbing us blind, shoveling taxpayer money to his political cronies and their sham companies, while blowing smoke up the asses of our media and their moronic leftwing readership.
Even the reporting on this is totally screwed up. Just what in the wide world of sports is a “fuel-neutral car”!?

I take it pond scum, windmills and unicorns will be used for packaging or computers or TV frames/VCRs, etc, or any number of 10s of 1000s of things we all use regularly.
Don Quixote was the sanest man that ever lived, compared to this chit.
One that uses compressed air or a slingshot for propulsion, no doubt. Refilling stations are going to be a kick every other 100 feet, though.
Semis will need sails, solar panels, wings and hovercraft technology from POND SCUM. Maybe they can be propelled by dry ice.
