While viewing one of the Sunday morning news programs on TV last weekend, I saw a feature on the new Chevrolet Corvette. The General Motors design engineer who was providing the interviewer with a test ride said the new Corvette was a complete redesign that would rival such brands as Porsche and Ferrari in terms of luxury, performance and price.

I find it ironic that President Obama touts himself as the savior of GM and a defender of the middle class, and then allows the car company to take taxpayer money to design an automobile that can only be afforded by the likes of himself, George Clooney, Jeffrey Immelt or some high-ranking union official.
