Dont forget that the best selling Chevy is still the Silverado, not exactly fuel efficient.
Obama just GAVE Chrysler to the UAW. While retaining a significant ownership for the Feds. All while kicking out the last remaining private owners. He forced the Fiat buy onto Chrysler specifically because he wants them to build tiny cars.

This is an unbelievable thing to watch. He's literally taking long term ownership stakes in these companies right before our eyes. Then he goes on TV and says he has no interest in doing what he just did.

Watch what the man does and stop listening to what he says ...

Wake up and smell the coffee folks.
