Former President Bill Clinton said Tuesday that the success of the alternative energy movement is hampered by a lack of financing. His comments came as world leaders attending his annual philanthropic conference expressed fears about rising seas.

The ex-president's three-day Clinton Global Initiative for VIPs with deep pockets began Tuesday with a frank discussion about addressing global climate challenges, co-hosted by Mexican President Felipe Calderon and South African President Jacob Zuma.

He has the gall to say this when Solyndra, the HALF BILLION DOLLAR BOONDOGGLE is just starting to break as the tip of the iceberg of scamming the US taxpayer in the name of “green jobs”????

Last night on FOX news (think it was Hannity) Andrew Breitbart said he is going to soon release a story that will make Solyndra look small. Crooks of all stripes have been forming “green companies” to grab some of the TRILLION DOLLAR stimulus money, and then going bankrupt.

Solyndra and LightSquare-— impeach impeach impeach

Throwing more money at the Green movement is nothing more than throwing money into a rat hole so the RATS can feed their ravenous appetites.

Here’s the entire script, Billy Jeff:

1. Private investors have no appetite for crappy investments that won’t return a dime. Ergo, private investors are greedy bastards who also don’t love their country.

2. The “green” energy companies turn to government loan guarantees to cover their buts when their companies dissolve into a pile of worthless mush. After all, government must invest in the high risk technologies that private companies won’t (the government line).

e. The “green” energy companies fail, sticking the taxpayers with the tab, because the technologies don’t work and cannot produce reliable and affordable energy.

3. Democracies go bankrupt from endlessly amassed debt including these outrageous “green” loans.

4. Rioting in the streets by the parasite class when their freebies are finally cut off.

5. Western Civilization ends.

It accomplishes at least 3 things -

one, it removes productive wealth/capital from the private sector and destroys it.

two, it makes their base sheeperals feel good about themselves for “saving the erf”.

three, it furthers communist goals of expanding government and destroying capitalism, as there is no conceivable scenario in which “green energy” can support a capitalist economy.

That’s what happens when you create a movement with non-working hippies as the main support.

Algore has plenty.
He should pay his fair share.
It’s the patriotic thing to do.
He’s greedy and should be punished.
He has more than he needs.
He should step up to the plate and fund all the green energy programs.

Wrong dumba$$... the success of the alternative energy movement is hampered by a lack of consumer demand.

“Former President Bill Clinton said Tuesday that the success of the alternative energy movement is hampered by a lack of financing.”

Interesting perspective. I think most investors would say that lack of financing is hampered by lack of success. But, then again, economic ignoramuses like Bill Clinton almost always get economic cause and effect bassackwards.

I’m sure Slick Willie made a lot of money screwing over this country (literally in some ways) during his time at the oral office.

LOL! Right smack in the middle of the Solyndra expose', Bill upholds the standard of the Clinton Doubledown Meme Machine!

It really is a talent, you know. We discover Solyndra destroyed and ripped off a billion dollars, and Bill immediately declares that alternative energy is underfunded? WTF? LOL!

Only Bill is sociopathic enough to pull this off with a straight face (although that is his peculiar talent, as he's proven many times).

Hillary's stomp-prints are all over this meme. It's not the Big Lie - it's the Clintonian Big Rape of the Big Lie, In Your Face, America!

And yet the the true wonder is that the machine still follows her tactics - even after she's shown, SO many times, how SUCCESSFUL she is.

What a pathetic parade.

I don’t think this is as characteristically Clinton as it is characteristically leftist -

if some policy doesn’t work, it’s because we didn’t spend enough on it. It’s never because the idea was flawed.
