    80% of Green Energy loans went to Obama donors.
    The FOX News analyst says 70% in the video but actually 80% of DOE dollars went to Obama backers. 19 of these green energy companies went bust.

    And, it’s expensive.
    Solar power is 35¢ per kilowatt compared to coal, gas and oil that costs 5¢ per kilowatt.


    Here’s a list of the green companies that have gone belly-up since receiving Obama dollars.
    Heritage reported:

    For those who only hear about these failing companies one by one, the following is a list of all the clean energy companies supported by President Obama’s stimulus that are now failing or have filed for bankruptcy. The liberal media hopes you’ve forgotten about all of them except Solyndra, but we haven’t.

    Evergreen Solar
    SpectraWatt
    Solyndra (received $535 million)
    Beacon Power (received $43 million)
    AES’ subsidiary Eastern Energy
    Nevada Geothermal (received $98.5 million)
    SunPower (received $1.5 billion)
    First Solar (received $1.46 billion)
    Babcock & Brown (an Australian company which received $178 million)
    Ener1 (subsidiary EnerDel received $118.5 million)
    Amonix (received 5.9 million)
    The National Renewable Energy Lab
    Fisker Automotive
    Abound Solar (received $400 million)
    Chevy Volt (taxpayers basically own GM)
    Solar Trust of America
    A123 Systems (received $279 million)
    Willard & Kelsey Solar Group (received $6 million)
    Johnson Controls (received $299 million)
    Schneider Electric (received $86 million)

    I wonder how many will actually believe this and how many will spin it?? Obama's entire presidency has been to "repay" his "investors" aka the people that contributed to his campaign.

    Pelosi has done the same thing for years, her brother-in-law has profited big from the idiots in California that keep voting for her. "Greenbacks" run rampant in politics, especially on the Dem side.

    :eusa_boohoo:

    You Koch slaves that hate your own children should not be allowed to have any.

    Bush created the green energy program and set the rules for the loans not Obama.

    You fascist suck up racists need to move to Italy where you will be accepted as the slaves you are.

    Climate change is not tied to your lame opinions but it is tied to your children's misery you are setting up for them. :mad:

    .

    If this is true -- and I haven't spent the time to corroborate it -- I'd think the GOP would jump all over it, on three levels.

    First, it's not the responsibility of the federal government to choose winners and losers in private industry, yet it clearly chose to advance green and handicap coal.

    Second, the green industry as a whole does not yet appear to be financially viable, and this administration decided to force the issue. And even its help couldn't create demand for the green products. That makes the industry look even LESS viable.

    Third, if 80% of the money went to Obama backers, that also stinks to high heaven. And it's another example of how money has so polluted and damaged our political system.

    Again, if this story is true, the GOP should jump on it with both feet. One indication of the story's validity may be if the GOP does run with it. Surely they'd vet it before running with it. And if Jack is correct above, that Bush put many of these loans in place, that about sinks it.

    Bush put the green energy initiatives in place, he didn't give or approve these loans. Bush's administration was approaching this methodically and with care, Obama just ran wild with it.

    I think you'll see Romney jump on this, with both feet, I'm not so sure. I don't think jumping in with both feet is his way of approaching anything. That's why 80% of his investments have been successful and 80% of Obama's haven't. ;)

    Since conservatives generally don't give a shit about the environment, and since conservatives generally reject the ideas or merits of green energy,

    OF COURSE they wouldn't be the ones owning, operating, or investing in green energy companies.

    Get it?
