Exhibit A:

I think the real problem with the electric car is simply that our road infrastructure isn't built to handle it, and our energy distribution system isn't built to handle it. They have wireless chargers, for example. You could in theory build a city where buried underneath intersections there were inductive chargers. Only the free market will ever tell us whether in time something like this is a good idea (cost effective, demand). But I'm sure there's enough smart people in the world to make electric cars work if there was enough money there.

WHO builds road infrastructure?

WHO builds energy distribution systems?

WHO builds "cities"?

Answer.......Obama does (with union labor)......and our money.....

Hence the takeaway.....perhaps I missed the "nuance"......
