    The Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing program was set up in the previous admintration. Not sure what is wrong with a company making an advanced electric car trying to get as much money from the program as possible.

    It contains the following paragraph, which gives away the entire game (IE: the article itself is politically motivated)
    <snark>Awww yeah, those cars suck and that Paypal thing is something nobody wanted and solar panels also suck and nobody would buy them without subsidies.</snark>

    Sounds like an attempt to create a talking point in the next debate.

    Let's see:

    Successfully launched two rockets that deployed a spacecraft that docked with the ISS.

    Successfully created the best electric car on the planet.

    and Solar City is #1 at what it does.

    Yeah that's a guy that isn't really producing anything... /sarc
