That's where you are when the President of Ford is more to the left and more Green than the fucking President of the United States. Via Hesiod:

"Ford Motor Co. chairman and chief executive Bill Ford Jr. reiterated his support Wednesday for government incentives and a larger tax on fuel to spur consumer interest in gas-electric hybrid vehicles, in which his company is investing heavily.

Ford, speaking to automotive journalists at the New York International Auto Show, said he thought incentives like tax breaks or government rebates of, say, $3,000 would be most effective. He also mentioned his past support of an additional 50-cent tax on gas, which he said would make fuel economy "a purchase motivation for the customer."

But Ford acknowledged such a tax "doesn't have legs" in the political arena.

"I'd like to get either federal or state and local help ... and I think it's the responsible thing to do," he said. "If the federal government really wants to encourage this kind of behavior -- and they should -- then that's a way they can clearly help."

I think we just found Kerry's Vice-President. NO, DAN, I'M JUST KIDDING...!
