    Too bad US companies can't make it like those in Germany. Yet again the cars they make are pretty durn good as well.

    When you receive stimulus money and turn around and donate to the campaign of the guy who gave it to you, what do you think is gonna happen.

    I'm not worried about Germany, I'm still working on taxpayer money going to those that are "chosen" by the administration and still can't make it.

    We'll discuss Germany another time if that's OK.

    So many people in that town have suffered so much! Many lost jobs when Electrolux closed...some of them went to this solar company, now most likely out of work again! I can't help but think these things are going to ruin Obama.... wow, i hope so!

    Hard to understand why they take so much joy in any failure of something with such huge potential benefit.

    Are you that much of a partisan hack that you can't see this for what the fuck it is?? Who's dumb ass would approve stimulus money to this company if it's going belly up 2 years later? Over $13 million down the drain with not a fucking thing to show for it, except for the campaign donations to the Dems in Michigan that finagled the deal.

    Fucking liberal twit!
