Fisker is another Solyndra, but Obama remains blameless
Fisker, the manufacturer of the "green", $100,000, plug-in hybrid KARMA, received $529million of money taken from taxpayers, then promptly laid off most of its workers because nobody but airheaded celebrity twits like Leo DiCaprio and Justin Bieber is buying it.
Now we hear that Consumer Reports tried to road-test the celebrity activists' favorite car but couldn't get one started....heh heh. There's a reason nobody wants this expensive piece of crap.....IT'S A PIECE OF CRAP! Plug-in hybrid technology might be a great idea, but it's not ready for the market yet, just like solar, wind, tide, and ethanol, but our superiors in government are cramming it down our throats for political reasons and to fight the entirely imaginary menace of global warming.
