Despite Solyndra, Obama to Boost Green Energy
January 23, 2012

With a Solyndra-scandal-be-damned attitude, President Obama is expected to revive his push for new green fuel sources in Tuesday's State of the Union address, claiming that they will boost jobs and help clean the environment.

Industry sources who met with policy officials at the White House last week say the president will hint at an emerging administration plan to propose increased spending on green fuel sources and radical changes in how the government and Americans power machines in the future. [See a collection of political cartoons on energy policy.]

"He wants a huge, sweeping thing. He wants to do it all," said an industry source, who explained that the president's plan was sidelined by the Solyndra financing scandal. "They are trying to get the train back on track and it will probably start with the State of the Union," said the source.

More taxpayer dollars to be thrown in the environmentalist sewer. Barry’s 48% who don’t pay taxes don’t care.

“Hey so what if we mucked it up with Solyndra, this green energy stuff is just too too TOO important to not go full steam ahead.”

Seems to be what I’m hearing, at least.

Even the 48% ought to care because tax wastage shows up in higher prices and smaller government bennies.

But I fear you are correct that they will not care.

Did you ever get to enjoy Jimmah Carter? I did. We were supposed to run out of oil many moons ago.

Obama's ad opens by citing "secretive billionaires attacking President Obama with ads fact-checkers say are not tethered to the facts." It says that the president has added 2.7 million clean energy jobs while reducing the nation's dependence on foreign oil, calling Obama's record on ethics "unprecedented." The voiceover ends by saying, "President Obama. Kept his promise to toughen ethics rules and strengthen America's energy economy."

I saw this commercial yesterday and about died. Blatant lies . . . incredible comments. 2.7 million clean energy jobs

Where? Where's even 270,000 jobs, or 27,000 jobs? What the hell's the matter with this moron? Didn't Solyndra fold up and lay everyone off? My blood was boiling when I saw this monstrosity.

The hell of it is that lot of this manure will stick, and mindless Nobamabots will point to it and say, "See, he's saving us! It must be true otherwise he wouldn't have said it?"

The Obamanation is trying to limit their damages by focusing on Solyndra. Divert the attention from any of the other “Green” failures they have blown our tax monies on in order to soften the picture of failure.

Sorry to say, I wasn’t much into politics back then. Those years was all about ‘me’ and ‘mine’, making a good living, no worries.

The older I got, the more I became ‘aware’.

When Hussein cranks out this bilge, those legislators who run as “conservatives” ought to boo as loudly as they can. If it’s civil enough for the House of Lords in Britain, it should certainly be okay in the USA. To sit like dunces and listen to the _resident lie and campaign with whatever money Bernanke can print before November betrays them as cowards.

If he really tries to sell this soap a second time, it will be a disaster for him. I hope he tries. Americans have seen the failure of the green agenda, and are tired of paying 3+ dollars for a gallon of gas, only to see the Keystone pipeline inexplicably shut down.

Obama's fancy solar powered coach&4 has turned into a pumpkin, and he doesn't know it yet.

It's not an environmental sewer.

It's a DNC long term money laundering service!

When they put out an ad we need to immediately put out one that respectfully but firmly counters their ad with the truth.
