Stop me if you’ve heard this one…603 Chevy Volts sold last month

02 Feb

Which means that today those 603 Volt owners were able to drive a cumulative 15,678 miles for a distance of 26 miles per car as a coal powered vehicle, before the car switched over to the other carbon based product that powers it, which happens to be gasoline, just like what you burn in your car.

Premium gasoline, that is.  Um.  Yeaaaaah.  I’m so GREEN.

I charge up my electric golf cart using coal to primp and preen my way through town, the object of all my neighbors adoration because I am not burning gasoline like you serfs that don’t own a $46,000 coal burner.  And we slightly over 10 people per state are primping and preening and driving their coal burners about town as well.  We are superior to you.  Worship our awesomeness!!

I loved Eric Bolling’s story on Fox News’ “The Five” about how he’d been ragging on the Volt, complaining about the massive citizen funded bailout of GM, the subsidies to get people to buy the Obamamobile via rebate, and so forth.  GM contacted Bolling, unhappy with his Volt bashing and offered him the car for a few days.

Let’s just say it didn’t go well for the Flinstone car.

He charged it up and headed to work only to find that the battery took him a whopping 26 miles before the car switched over to gasoline.  Did I say Premium gasoline?  Yes I did.

At least it didn’t burst into flames for him and at least he wasn’t in an accident where EMTs wouldn’t be able to use the jaws of life for fear of being electrocuted.

Watch the video.  It’s spectacular and morbidly funny, in a big government gone wild, we’re totally screwed as a nation, the idiots are running the show kind of way. 

It’s not priceless.  It’s priceful.  Really, really full of price.  And Obama’s coal car is really, really, reaaaally full of failure, just like the rest of his hare brained schemes.

    A fully gas-powered Volt is called the Cruze, which is one-third the price of the Volt and gets decent mileage.

      Beretta the car or Beretta the firearm?

      I had a friend with a Beretta and the driver’s door fell of while he was on the expressway at high speed. Since the seatbelt was attached to the door it damn near pulled him out of the car.

    Bolling is a sore losing Obama hating republican who is spreading misinformation about the Chevy Volt via Fox News.
    He intentionally lies and worse than that, attempts to fool those who watch
    him (dare i say the gullible Fox news audience) by using half truths and outright lies.
    He doesn’t even understand how to operate or charge the vehicle, or to utilize the gas engine generator which gives the Volt UNLIMITED driving range after the 25+ miles on electric charge are used by filling up the small gas tank which is used to run the onboard generator. It is quite a marvelous system – all electric drive with back -up gasoline powered generator.
    Bolling also claims that it takes 9 hours to charge. He exaggerates that but anyone who has a Volt simply has an outlet wired for 220v in their garage which reduces the charging time to 4 hours from zero to full charge…easily done.
    Bolling has a mean streak and a lot of animus towards Obama. Trying to convert that hatred into his opinion about a technology he doesn’t even understand has made him a joke.

      Yes, the Volt is so marvelous people are snapping them up in record numbers. So, all you gotta do is rewire your house to own a Volt, eh?

      Enjoy your coal powered car.

    wow. let’s see what the two left responses are so far. at the end of the video, that DNC dude tried to say Bolling must have gotten a bad apple, basically. Just that one Volt didn’t perform as well as all the out there.

    And this “Chopperen” dude falls back on “he’s lying!” and “he can’t work the car,” without, of course, any actual evidence of such. But the fact that “Chopperen” believes the dude is a dumb liar should be enough evidence, right?

    uh-huh.
