More proof that President Obama’s agenda for clean energy is needed more so now than ever before. To Hell with pipelines; wind turbines and solar panels is the future and president Obama will get us there.

Since nobummber has had massive green energy failures, maybe he needs to make friends with Gov. Perry and former Gov/President Bush and get some real leadership on the issue, instead of flying all over the country and talking about it. LMAO

LOL - Shrub? Isn't that boy over in Iraq looking for those WMD's? A guy who left office with a 24% approval rating is the LAST person anyone should ask for anything.

Shrub's (and Perrywinkle's) intelligence is Palin-esque.

LMFAO..........

NY and CA together hasn't produced as many private sector jobs as Texas....Wyoming has produced very high paying jobs. California is losing coompanies to Arizona, Nevada and Texas due to uber high taxes and regulations. Keep up with the news, boy.

Half the nation thought Romney was a better choice, still do. He's now chairman of the board of Mariott Hotels...which he'll make more prosperous as he has other companies. Nobama on the other hand hasn't had a project yet that has produced a hot dog stand. LMAO

The bluest of the blue states is caving in..imploding under their own regulations and taxes. Hilarious...your system sucks.

Wyoming is a red state, crap for brains. Both senators, most congressmen and governor. 70% voted republican in 08 and 12.

Wyoming a blue state...boy you're funnier than a horseback ride with hemmoroids!!

during WW1 and WW2, thousands of ships were sunk in combat, all around the globe, each with thousands of tons of fuel oil in their bunkers. The USS Arizona, sunk at Pearl Harbor 71 years ago, still seeps oil, but the environment still survives. Explain why the rare accident, compared with the thousands of ships sunk in wars, will cause the environment to collapse?

Ya see dimwit, only scummy rags like World Nut Daily would probably even hint that such a fallacy existed.

Let's start with states that have the highest paying jobs first;

http://jobs.aol.com/articles/2011/03/28/the-b...

Texas isn't mentioned bubba - try again. But, I bet you need more proof, don't you;

"In The New York Times, five writers debated the Texas job juggernaut, and one headline captured this theme: "Texas or the Third World?"

There is some truth in the analyses, because the number of minimum-wage workers here has surged since the recession. Last year, 550,000 Texans were paid the minimum wage or less, up from 173,000 in 2006, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In addition, 1 in 4 Texas residents has no health insurance, the highest rate in the country. Perry has done little to address that problem."

http://www.nationofchange.org/texas-low-payin...

You think Americans are flocking to ?Texas to get shit pay and no health benefits? Think again sparky! Arizona and Nevada have been doing poorly also - but don't let facts get in your way you fcuking imbecile;

"While nine states and the District of Columbia have recovered all of the jobs they lost to the Great Recession, Arizona isn’t even close.

Arizona had 224,200 fewer jobs in May than it had in May 2007. The 8.4 percent decline during that five-year period is the third worst in the nation, behind Nevada (12.5 percent) and Florida (9 percent)."

http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/news/2012/...

You know jack shit what you're talking about - except Wyoming, which is doing very well.
