General Motors raised a few eyebrows in early March when they announced production of the Chevy Volt was going to be sidelined for five weeks. The announcement came at a time when conservative pundits and GOP presidential candidates, most notably Newt Gingrich, were disparaging the Chevy Volt as a way of attacking President Obama. After all, the president is the socialist king-pin who proved market exuberance occasionally requires a correcting force only possible by government intervention. This is unacceptable to the free-market capitalists so they resort to childish verbal assaults on a mass-produced American-made automobile. Gingrich believes it was a huge mistake when the Chevy Volt designers neglected to include space for a gun rack. Mitt Romney just today said “I’m not sure America was ready for the Chevy Volt.” Funny Mitt, most of America feels the same way about you.
