This is for the left wing looneys who "think" no one really cares about the scandels. I beg to differ. I read another article that stated the scandals are definitely taking a toll on Obama.

lol Perhaps you should confer with your OBAMIE about how he invests our money in green companies. His record isn't very good. Your hero has wasted too much of our money on his poor choices, so......

Darrell Issa caught with pants down over green energy scandalmongering
by Jed Lewis
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/09/21/1018...

...Republicans like Issa have tried to turn the Solyndra failure into a political scandal, but the reality is that sometimes private companies fail—even ones that have taken federal loans. And despite his scandalmongering, Issa himself has privately embraced the exact same programs he is now publicly criticizing...

Dear Mr. Secretary:
I write to express my support of Aptera Motors’ application for a loan under the Department of Energy’s 136 Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Incentive Program (ATVMIP). Funding will allow Aptera to establish U.S. manufacturing facilities for the commercial production of its plug-in and hybrid electric cars...

EV Startup Aptera Motors Pulls the Plug
BY CHUCK SQUATRIGLIA
http://www.wired.com/autopia/2011/12/aptera-m...

...“After years of focused effort to bring our products to the market, Aptera Motors is closing its doors, effective today,” he said in the statement...

Wilbur said the company had been engaged in “exhaustive due diligence” with the Department of Energy and, having had its business plan “examined from top to bottom,” recently received a conditional commitment letter for $150 million under the Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing loan program. That money would have underwritten development of a five-passenger, mid-sized electric sedan.

“The last remaining hurdle was finding new funds to match the DOE loan,” Wilbur said. But the company, which had secured $40 million from private investors since 2007, was unable to even begin raising the $80 million needed to secure the loan...

Republicans Sought Clean-Energy Money for Home States
By ERIC LIPTON
Published: September 19, 2011
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/20/us/politics...

WASHINGTON — On the Senate floor and the television airwaves, Senator Mitch McConnell has lambasted the Obama administration over what he has described as its failed efforts to stimulate new jobs through clean-energy projects backed with billions of dollars in federal loans or other assistance.

But Mr. McConnell, of Kentucky, is one of several prominent Republicans who have worked to steer federal money to clean-energy projects in their home states, Energy Department documents show.

Mr. McConnell made two personal appeals in 2009, asking Energy Secretary Steven Chu to approve as much as $235 million in federal loans for a plant to build electric vehicles in Franklin, Ky.

...Another Republican, Representative Lamar Smith of Texas, recently asked Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to appoint an outside investigator to determine how the Department of Energy distributes clean-energy money. But in 2009, Mr. Smith wrote to Mr. Chu asking him to approve loan guarantees from stimulus money for a Texas project proposed by Tessera Solar, documents show.

Representative Fred Upton, Republican of Michigan and another critic of the Energy Department program, signed letters along with other members of the Michigan delegation in 2009 and 2010, pushing at least five clean-energy projects in his state, including a $207 million loan request from EcoMotors International. And Representative Cliff Stearns, Republican of Florida, praised the opening last year of a lithium-ion battery manufacturing plant in his state, which relied upon an Energy Department grant.

Obama is nobody's hero, he was just one hell of a lot better than the loony's the Republicans were putting up trying to satisfy the idiot base. The idiot base has almost killed the party I spent 30 years supporting, but that is changing. The good thing now is that you don't matter anymore to anyone other and FNC and a few talking heads. With the eroding buying power of your age group. With the economy turning around and the mad rush by the scared and uneducated to buy gold and the need to get ripped off by some reverse mortgage company is not going to be there anymore.

FNC, Rush, Beck and the rest only love you when you satisfy their advertisers. You are nothing more that a market to these people and soon you won't even matter to them.

...Also there is a debate going on that oil is renewable. It is a carbon substance created by the earth. It very well may be a lubricant that is somehow used by the earth. There are oil wells that were fully depleted in the 1940's that are again half full. You really don't think that oil is created by dead dinosaurs do you? If you do then tell me how many dinosaurs does it take to make one barrel of oil? How did the dinosaurs get buried 5 miles under the earths surface? Those animals and plants must have died and piled themselves up 3 miles high to make a lake of oil. Usually dead animals are eaten and then decay and turn to dust. My belief is that oil will be in the earth as long as the earth exist.
Nope, there's no debate at all,

Oil Might Be a Renewable Resource, and Other Things You Did Not Know
By Scott Huler | January 8, 2013
http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/plugged-i...

Or,“Thank God there’s a North Carolina.”

Yep. We have a new governor, which means new secretaries of this and that. Meet John Skvarla, new secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR, to tarheels). To cut to the chase, here’s your takeaway idea: maybe oil is a renewable resource. And he doesn’t mean in the wait-45-million-years-and-we’l l-get-more sense.

“The Russians for instance have always drilled oil as if it’s a renewable resource,” says Skvarla.“And so far they haven’t been proven wrong.

“There’s a lot of different scientific opinion on that.”

Yep. There’s just TONS of scientists out there figuring that maybe oil is like those trick cups Barbies used to drink from, where you tilt them and the stuff vanishes, and then it magically fills back up when you set it down. TONS of scientists.

Except oops, actually not. There’s a crazy theory that crude oil comes from phytoplankton and another that it just sort of trickles up from the earth’s mantle (here’s a wonderfully simple dismissal of the notion), but you’ll have to work pretty hard to find anybody in mainstream science who buys into it....

Your Obamabot infusion is still working. You have no idea what kind of president Romney would have been. You voted for the person with a proven losing record. SH.
At any rate, get that checkbook out. Obamacare is coming. Just wait until you realize how "smart" you are.*laughing*

The info on that link I posted about staffers leaving their jobs due to Obamacare was on some of the left wing news programs, too. But, nooooooooo. You don't want to believe that. I guess you'll just have to wait and see.

Squirm, squirm, squirm all you like, but it doesn't matter how many are in Congress since the fact remains that these Republicans lined up to proclaim "Obama's failures" far and wide while taking part in those "failures". In fact. some of the projects and companies that these Republicans advocated did in fact fail. But hey, don't let any of that stop you from spewing your electron bile.

Then consider that for about the first 50 of those yrs., the U.S. was using most of it by itself. Now you have the whole world having to share or fight over what is left.
I just read an article on the internet about the world passing peak oil being used. I will tell you this. The article says that all of the estimates of when oil will run out is absolutely wrong and that there is so much oil that we will be using other sources of energy and there will still be plenty of oil. I am not going to try and find it again but if you want to you can find it. It was just written by top oil and scientific people. There has been so many large oil reserves found in the last 3 years that we are nowhere near running out of oil. If I am right about the earth producing abiotic oil we will never run out. I think the Russians already know this as they have drilled over 300 super deep wells using this abiotic oil.

Here's one for all you myth-lovin' right wing wackos- the 'Flat Earth Society'(no kidding!), just think, if they are right, then the earth could just be floating on an endless sea of crude oil. Now all that we need to do is drill a deep enough well and turn on the tap. An everlasting supply of oil. Perfectly logical, huh. BTW, they also believe that the moon landings were just 'staged' in Hollywood- I know y'all will just love that one.

Louisianna State Senator Elbert Guillory - a very brave man- on why he recently switched from the Democratic party to the Republican party:

"in recent history the Democrat Party has created the illusion that their agenda and their policies are what’s best for black people. Somehow it’s been forgotten that the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement with one simple creed: that slavery is a violation of the rights of man.
....
It was the Republican President Dwight Eisenhower who championed the Civil Rights Act of 1957, but it was Democrats in the Senate who filibustered the bill.

You see, at the heart of liberalism is the idea that only a great and powerful big government can be the benefactor of social justice for all Americans. But the left is only concerned with one thing — control. And they disguise this control as charity. Programs such as welfare, food stamps, these programs aren’t designed to lift black Americans out of poverty, they were always intended as a mechanism for politicians to control black the black community.

The idea that blacks, or anyone for that matter, need the the government to get ahead in life is despicable. And even more important, this idea is a failure. Our communities are just as poor as they’ve always been. Our schools continue to fail children. Our prisons are filled with young black men who should be at home being fathers. Our self-initiative and our self-reliance have been sacrificed in exchange for allegiance to our overseers who control us by making us dependent on them.

Sometimes I wonder if the word freedom is tossed around so frequently in our society that it has become a cliché.

The idea of freedom is complex and it is all-encompassing. It’s the idea that the economy must remain free of government persuasion. It’s the idea that the press must operate without government intrusion. And it’s the idea that the emails and phone records of Americans should remain free from government search and seizure. It’s the idea that parents must be the decision makers in regards to their children's education — not some government bureaucrat.

But most importantly, it is the idea that the individual must be free to pursue his or her own happiness free from government dependence and free from government control. Because to be truly free is to be reliant on no one other than the author of our destiny. These are the ideas at the core of the Republican Party, and it is why I am a Republican.

So my brothers and sisters of the American community, please join with me today in abandoning the government plantation and the Party of disappointment. So that we may all echo the words of one Republican leader who famously said,‘free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, we are free at last.’ "
