"Renewable energy isn't something pie in the sky," Obama said during a speech at Cardinal. "It's not part of a far-off future. It's happening all across America right now.

But all those new jobs are going off shore.
Isn’t this the fourth or fifth “alternative” heavily subsidized business that he personally visited that has failed in the last year?
If that is the case, hope he doesn’t visit the company here you work.
“Green” energy uses up more conventional energy resources than it creates in usable “green” energy.

May every person who owns a business ‘touched’ by Obama and his Administration go belly-up and may every employee of those businesses come to detest the very sound of Obama’s name as I detest the sound of his voice.
And I completely detest the sound of his voice ... to the point of vomiting every time I hear the first syllable out of his lying mouth.
I hope none of the wind generators in Texas does that. It is drier here than I can recall since the mid 50s.
Is there any factory that Obama has visited and praised that hasn’t gone tits up?
If memory serves, this was a Spanish company that made masts and turbine blades. The turbines themselves were made elsewhere. The low tech blades where made here and the “high” tech turbines, where the real profits are, were not.
