Now that GM stands for Government Motors, King Obama has decided that he and the skeevy bureaucrats in government know best how to run the company successfully. And success to Obama is Americans buying the cars he wants us to buy rather than the ones we want. You see, democrats hate that Americans stubbornly continue to buy pick-up trucks and SUV's. They would rather we drive stupid, tiny, hybrid death traps instead. And despite the fact that 11 of the 12 most profitable vehicles that GM makes are pick-ups or SUV's, Obama says that GM must phase out those models in favor of smaller, high-gas-milage, hyprids and sub-compacts that nobody wants to drive.
In order to create demand for these clown cars, Obama will find a way to raise dramatically the taxes on petroleum companies so that prices at the pump are so high that we have no choice but to drive stupid hybrids. He'll probably raise corporate tax rates first, and then use the moronic cap-and-trade scheme to force prices at the pump even higher.
For liberalism to work, Americans need to be suffering, so democrats will do whatever they can to prolong our suffering.
Under The One, if you drive one of these, you'll be an enemy of the State.
