Does the failure of Solyndra mean Obama has failed on Energy policy? Not even close.

    Here is an assessment on the outcome of Obama's campaign promises. I think this further proves that Obama has been a very effective president, despite a sluggish economy.

    PolitiFact | The Obameter: Campaign Promises that are about Energy

    Here is a good one:

    PolitiFact | The Obameter: Create 5 million "green" jobs

    It will take about a decade for the promise above to be fully fulfilled (depending on economic conditions), but already estimates say close to a million private, green jobs will have been created by the end of 2012.

    All in all, was Solyndra a failure? Yes, but that does not mean Obama hasn't made great strides with Energy issues.

    Was Solyndra a failure? Yes. But it is symptomatic of Obama's crony capitalism, which is the real failure.
    Private sector oil and gas have created 10 times the number of jobs, with no taxpayer funding, that Obama's Greeny-Weeny crap has.
    Obama is the worst president since Huge Chavez.

    Okay, so you're saying that oil companies have created 10 million jobs? :lol: Even if that were true, there is no way in hell they could have created that many jobs in 3 years. Do you have a link to prove that?

    This pales in comparison to Obama's plan. Where is this 10 million job figure you were talking about? According to this, 200,000 jobs have been created since 2003. That is an 8 year stretch. Obama's plan will have created 800,000 jobs in 4 years.

    It's simple math, really.

    If you wanted everyone to know you are a shameless whore, why didn't you just come right out and say so directly?

    So far I haven't encountered any other private industry that will create that many jobs in less than 10 years.

    Only the most shameless, 'hey, wipe that off your chin' whore could possibly try to portray this president's energy policy as anything other than a craven, politically-driven disaster.
