And tonight's power grab the president is doubling down on -- but GM is taking a step back and ignoring its pay master with this Super Bowl -- that certainly wasn't cheap to produce by the -- notice.
What it is selling it and let's just say it's not the -- take a look.
They didn't drive the longest lasting most dependable truck right.
-- -- -- Sure -- car Coach Lauren fix is not surprising that she says GM.
Just giving the people what they want and it's not cars like the -- which we have said very often -- the people to start buying your.
Absolutely right December figures were weighed on January figures were way down.
I guess actually December figures were up but January was back down again so is GM ignoring the volt now.
Well -- a little bit of -- punching bag that Volvo is valid government -- bring up everything.
But back to them.
What's selling GM trucks sold last year -- and 151000.
But I have to say this believe it or not they sold more than a 150000 more -- So they were really I think it was more of an attack.
I try to get sales because whereas health coming from a comfortable with that kind of a little product it's coming from the trucks in the -- -- -- -- with Ford.
And it actually is true with Chrysler as well the Dodge Ram -- sells very well and the profit did you get from trucks we should -- is always much greater than abrupt but you get from these little small cars right.
What what -- not a hybrid -- some of the manufacturers make profit.
They're not making.
Money available yet it's gonna take a long to even the Prius makes such a minimal amount and that's did pretty much where the number one selling vehicles Ford in their escape hybrids.
They're doing it because of cafe standards and what I find totally amusing to the whole thing is if you saw.
President Obama get in the vehicle.
One of the vehicles recently he said in a Shelby mustang exit while it's a stack.
This car is sick OK so do you want us to drive -- -- -- boxes and under the Guam -- you want to -- that hot Shelby you know what I wanna -- -- -- -- jail.
That is what's called.
Have to say anything -- -- clearly GM is becoming more friendly to trucks now.
What they're not gonna abandon the volt says some people wish they would but they're not gonna do -- They.
Know now would be an embarrassment selling some -- nursing huge followers.
Well that last time I told everyone likes personable and it will bring up ports is a huge following.
-- bull people and that's fine but that doesn't fit everybody's needs if you are working person you're a plumber your construction worker you need to have a track.
You're gonna buy aboard a Chevy GM -- tighten NATO Nissan truck something.
You're going to buy something.
But the fact is -- noble and buying a hybrid car plug in car has no towing capacity.
A big agreed fuel economy but it does it mean most people's needs and again here we are the government telling us we wanna drive what we want to -- turned out what we're gonna breathe everything and -- -- -- to control sugar.
I'm surprised they let that -- and there are actually look at.
With the I am honored to -- via the as one of the doing -- -- -- hands on that yeah.
Definitely peg might -- the apocalypse by the way GM is still not all well audience that -- was -- in a journal article today that they may have to sell off.
That the government may try to sell off all the shares added ten billion dollar loss I mean that they Stiller stuck with a -- to a certain extent so it it still needs a little time before things settled now.
Right actually it's funny because I -- -- when they first came out what the stock at while they're just a year too early bid is weak is it really good product.
And the problem is if you talk to people -- the whole and you look at what people are actually buying.
There but they feel comfortable with and they are still people out there especially since -- -- -- I wouldn't by the car because it's still government motors and their mind.
That's it really fair because they do have some good quality product.
And I test driven muddy the Cadillac it's fantastic we of the bureau -- loved -- -- -- -- -- -- that's -- are lower -- -- -- -- -- I'm -- 'cause we just wanna play a clip.
One of my favorite actors committees would try to so crisis I that a.
To try showing you -- can be done.
And what's true about.
It's true about all of us.
This country -- October are now that of course is an ad for Chrysler but she would never know what we didn't see the Chrysler -- And of course no mention of the fact that it's now an Italian car company.
Character and I gifted Italian car company -- that we get -- granted to them.
I have to say at least that talked about Americans coming together when things weren't good -- -- we're gonna survive that in America is all about.
And I have to take when these would probably got I'm guessing some around ten million dollars that's like thinking yeah there was some good money -- -- -- credit.
But I I have to say you know I noticed even in today's Paper there was a full page -- with Clint Eastwood so.
Too often -- remember also had good good they are probably -- to -- was a Ford was a non.
We -- I yeah.
And that's it mentioning that I'm sure you know that --
