Four more years of this insanity? Obama’s Utopian green dream car built by union bailout money and subsidized by even more tax dollars can catch fire and then electrocute first responders trying to save the driver.

Newt : Recall Obama along with the Volt

GM is recalling the biggest flop in autos since the Edsel. The Chevy electric Volt was touted by Obama as the future of the auto industry.
