Obama Praises Bush’s Economic Policies on Daily Show

"…within two minutes, Obama takes credit for the Bush policies that he deceitfully suggests were effective and also blames Bush's policies for the terrible state of the economy."

Obama’s ‘Yes I Can’ Policy Stifling Energy Industry #tcot

Hat tip: Planet Gore
 

It turns out that Obama’s “Yes I Can!” attitude means that America’s economic recovery can’t. As the voting booths open it will be interesting to see if citizens cast their ballot for those who are quick to serve their own needs instead of the needs of those they represent.

You Can Pay Me Now or You Can Pay Me Later #tcot

From Bruce McQuain:
 

This speech by Dave Cote, CEO of Honeywell (to the Chamber of Commerce) was forwarded to me by a friend.  It is one of the best summaries of our fiscal/financial problems I’ve seen in a while.  Usually, when I see a 34 minute video I’m loath to give the time necessary to watch it, but this one is both fascinating and deeply disturbing. Take the time.

In the words of Seinfeld’s Kramer: GIDDYUP!! #tcot

"You have not stopped Barack Obama. You have not, to paraphrase P. J. O’Rourke, served the restraining order. You have not made this country safe. You have not stopped the advance of socialism in this country. You have not stopped the Democrats from destroying the economy. You, all of you, have won nothing. NOTHING.

LET'S GO PEOPLE!!

The Chevy Volt Runs on Coal

Hat tip: Planet Gore on National Review Online (via WSJ):

Cars account for 9% of America's CO2 output, making power plants a much more sensible target if your worry is global warming. Ironically, the Volt rolls out amid news that an investor is abandoning a big U.S. nuclear project, leaving America more dependent than ever on "dirty" coal for its electricity.

I've always called the lottery a tax on people that are bad at math. And liberalism is a collection of these people in large numbers. Despite the hopey-changey cult following of these technical albatrosses, the free market will kill the Volt dead. In two years or less.

First Drive: 2011 Chevrolet Volt

Hat tip: Autoblog

While touted as an engineering marvel, it does not live up to it's original hype of being an "electric" vehicle. It has a gas engine inside and up until just recently, due to GM being very secretive about the transmission design, it was thought the electric motor would be the primary drive with the gas engine as a back up only. Autoblog as well as other press outlets feel justifiably duped. Of the transmission design:

There's no point in belaboring the controversy beyond saying that the design is 10-15 percent more efficient, according to GM. Since efficiency is pretty much the whole point of the vehicle, we're satisfied, even if we're not happy that we (along with the rest of the media) were misled. However, it's time to move on and focus on evaluating the Volt as a vehicle, and to that end, it's an amazing piece of machinery.
