NEIL CAVUTO, HOST OF "YOUR WORLD":I'm sorry, I was distracted.
I've been waiting for someone at the White House to apologize to Toyota today.
Actually for "anyone" in government to apologize to Toyota.
The ones who said...Toyota was darn near Lucifer...on wheels. And happy with killing people in its cars.
Who insisted virtually all Toyotas had some serious electronic flaws.
How else to explain all those Toyota cars suddenly accelerating?
And forcing the automaker into recalling more than 12 million vehicles?
Now don't tell those transportation department guys it was just a stupid floor mat.
Or some stressed out drivers.
It had to be something deep or sinister, electronic.
Apparently, very wrong.
Transportation secretary Ray Lahood saying...
And I quote..."we enlisted the best and brightest engineers to study Toyota's electronics system and the verdict is in. There is no electronic-based cause for unintended acceleration in Toyotas."
This after Toyota said the same exact thing....that it couldn't find any electronic flaws.
Even after the company paid a record 48.8 million dollars in fines for recalls that "it" spearheaded, that "it" suggested, not the government.
Even after the government corralled NASA engineers...NASA engineers!!!...to "rigorously examine" Toyota cars...and review 280,000 lines of software code "in" those cars...
After all that...even our best and brightest with "rockets" could find nothing electronically wrong with these cars.
So after having its name dragged through the mud.
Its reputation destroyed world-wide.
After being made the brunt of jokes.
Not so much as an "Oops, sorry guys," from our government.
Trust me; I'm not an apologist for Toyota.
Just a guy suggesting that maybe someone in government should just apologize to Toyota.
