Like CEO Dan Akerson, Bob Lutz considers himself to be a conservative and a member of the Republican party. His negative thoughts on global warming are well documented, and yet, he finds no reason — unlike radical GOP talking heads Bill O’Reilly, Lou Dobbs, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and friends — to make a political punching bag out of the Chevy Volt.
You’re probably thinking that he gets paid not to say such things. However, he’s also on the board of directors for the electric vehicle fleet company VIA Motors, and claims the Volt was his idea all along. Its undeniable champion, he wrote in a blog post for Forbes. Lutz also pointed out that this is exactly how the misinformed conservatives would react to the Volt’s fire incident, calling it some sort of socialist “exploding Obamamobile” and blah blah blah, rabble rabble rabble. But he calls out his fellow party members for spreading false information, such as when O’Reilly, who thinks his show is some kind of “No Spin Zone” claimed that “several have caught fire”. Let it be known, that nobody’s Volt caught fire out there in real life, compared to an artificial crash test and total lack of follow-through. Well, there was that garage incident in Connecticut where a Volt was a fire casualty, but not a fire catalyst.
But, it has to be an Obamamobile! A car for commys! Something that the socialists want to shove down all of our throats! Because after all, it made its debut when Obama was in office, right! Sure. Obama and friends must have also been there in 2006, when its development was just underway. The socialists were probably there too when former president George dubbya Bush signed off on the first wave of rescue loans.
It’s a scary time we live in, where the masses ignorantly accept what the illuminating rectangles in their living rooms are preaching to them, trusting every word, rather than doing any form of independent research for themselves. *Sigh*. But of course, it’s an election year. Everyone needs a rabble stick. Or a fighter jet.
