    Hot air? White House takes credit for Bush-era wind farm jobs


    Administration claims 50,000 jobs created, but many projects were completed before funds were handed out

    It's all part of MSNBC's plan to annually show one example of being fair and balanced.

    Now, hold on...the latest WH idea is a great one:

    put the wind turbines in the break-down lane on all the interstates, and that way fossil fuels will create the energy to replace fossil fuels....

    of something like that.

    Or some other stupid thing like planting trees in the middle of the street. Do you recall that? I am looking for that article. The city commissioner or council planted trees in large square concert planters about 4-5 feet from sidewalk in the street spaced about 20 feet apart all the way down the street. I want to say it was Chicago or Detroit suburb. I can’t recall now. I believe the article was discussed here a little while back. The pictures were ridiculous.
