Are those SUV's 'green'????
The Cash for Clunkers debacle was supposed to have vehicles with high gas mileage be traded in for vehicles that had 'greater' gas mileage; however, many of the vehicles on the list to trade up to had 'lower' gas mileage than some of the vehicles being traded in. People buy what they want and not what this administration believes they should own....and people LOVE suv's and hate Volts.
NOW you care if they're green?
So people are never happy...some will never even be content.
As usual, you deliberately miss the point
GM is so busy pumping out those 'gas guzzler' SUV's because there is a demand for them compared to the huge failure that the electric Volt has been, that they now need to put on another shift to build them....
Good for the economy, good for the gas companies, good for the labor force.....baaaadddd for BO and his green energy agenda. Think he'll be po'd at his GM buddies? Or do you think he'll try to use this as a plus for his campaign even though it is a slap in his agenda face?
I think he'll be pragmatic.
After all GM is state owned and any good news on the job front is welcome, and if increased sales helps gM pay off their debt to the state, all well and good.
Sure, Obama may have wished for greener vehicles, but if US consumers still wish to guzzle their gas down in barrels rather than litres, then what to do? The US is a commercial country after all and the consumer rules.
And good for GM.....
....which must be doing pretty well.
Yep...they should be able to repay their debt
Checked the price of their stock lately?
RE: As usual, you deliberately miss the point
Saw that and also saw the irony
of mandating higher fuel mileage while producing the Cadillac Escalade AWD which specs out at a whopping 15 mpg (combined city/hwy) when setting new CAFE rules to require 54.5 mpg by 2025. Of course that will be some other president's problem to deal with by then.
Well...see. You can have your cake and eat it too
Gas prices drop and SUV sales go up so everyone gets to pick one thing to cheer and the other to jeer. When the reverse happens, both sides can still be happy campers by just changing their facial expressions. We'll be happy in the knowledge that we won't run out of things to worry about and campaign on. So what's the problem?
