Obama was offering incentives to buy the Chevy Volt and was spending billions on it. Only 60 people have bought a Chevy Volt. Same with the Nissan Leaf. I don't mind having energy independence and that's why I'm for nuclear energy and more drilling. Also, why did Obama release 30 billion barrels of our reserve oil just to lower the price of gas? That was very stupid. Why is Obama supporting Brazil and Venezuela's quest for more oil drilling but shutting down ours in the Gulf? Now other countries are taking oil that was ours.
There have been 3875 leafs (leaves?) sold to date, and there have been 2754 Volts. Very far from your lie about it being only 60.
