Did anybody tell you that you spent billions on the 'clean energy' economy?



Solyndra is one (but not the biggest) example of how Obama's cronies received billions of dollars in your money, ostensibly to create jobs in a 'clean energy' economy.



But the whole stimulus thing did not work out so well in job creation...especially not in the 'clean energy' job creation.



Where is the outrage of billions of your dollars going to 'green' corporate fat cats who laid-off workers and stole our tax dollars? Oh yeah...that narrative only works if they can claim they are Republican fat-cats.


Did Barack Obama keep his promise to invest in a 'clean energy economy' or payoff his political allies with your money?

    Of course they were payoffs, How can you have a Clean Energy Program based on things that don't work, at a price you can't afford, and pushed by hypocrites using fuel and electricity you're not supposed too.

    Of course there are kick backs it the liberal socialist way. OVOMIT could not create jobs or cut spending if this was spelled out for him on a teleprompter with explicit directions.
    He is for turning this country into a socialist economy. Giving more money to failing business is what he loves. Hypocrite city is where he needs to reside..Pack you crap ovomit your heading back to Kenya on a one way trip , courtisy of the AMERICAN people who can't stand you anymore.

    I'm still waiting for the "I will cut the deficit in half in my first term in office". There is NO green energy; what is green energy? Do we import green energy from the Moon or Mars? Everything comes from Mother Earth and goes back to Mother Earth. obama liar

    [sic] Obama invested in the 'clean energy' economy...just look at all the jobs! He sure did, using the false, pie-in-the-sky premise that ‘green’ energy IS the energy wave of the world. The fat-cat liberal executives and management staff of Solyndra enriched themselves, with your money. The greedy Union bosses enriched themselves, with your money, building an unnecessary, redundant mega complex in Fremont California. Left over workers maintained their jobs destroying millions of dollars worth of perfectly usable, high quality glass tubing, which at best could have been sold to the Chinese (at 25 cents on the dollar) who were going to under bid Solyndra in the first place!

    Oh yes, Obummer kept his promise alright, greasing the palms of union executives, garnering their vote; stuffing the bank accounts of Solyndra managers and executives, garnering their vote; and with what…OUR MONEY!
