Tesla’s Elon Musk Joins The Obama Victory Lap

Mitt Romney memorably dubbed Tesla Motors a “loser” during the presidential race, lumping the electric car company together with other troubled (or bankrupt) businesses that received government support from the Obama administration.

Now, with Romney recovering from the biggest loss of his life and the Tesla TSLA +1.75% Model S sedan last night being awarded Motor Trend’s Car of the Year prize, its CEO Elon Musk is having a brief moment of gloat — for his car, but also toward the man who dubbed his business a loser.

Speaking at a media event yesterday celebrating the Car of the Year award, here’s what Musk had to say, according to Fox News:

Musk contrasted the Model S, the winner of the award, to the “loser” remark made during the campaign–by parsing the comment grammatically.

Mr. Romney, he suggested, had gotten “the object, but not the subject” of the remark right.

A standing-room-only crowd of Tesla owners and depositors laughed and cheered his comment.
