The Mandate was for Bipartisanship to get the entire country moving in the right direction, Not just the Obama Donors and Big Lobbyists using Quid Pro Quos.
Obama has been a disaster in this regard and so many others.

The new Mandate is for him to simple Be Gone.

Even if 'most Americans think the Green New Deal' is the way to go, Stein leaves a lot of questions on the table in an era where the voter wants specifics.

Namely, who's gonna pay for it.

"The actual number was more like $21 billion. I know, because I helped oversee the administration's efforts in this area.
The larger number refers to all of the investments in the 2009 stimulus package that the administration designated "green" in any way. The number included $6 billion for advanced batteries to make electric cars possible,$29 billion for energy efficiency and home retrofits,$3 billion for job training, and even $18 billion for transit and high speed rail. To pretend that all of that money went to solar and wind companies is ludicrous.
Worse, Romney alleged that the administration picked only "losers." False.
First of all, many of these initiatives began under President George W. Bush, including some of the loan guarantee programs Romney likes to attack. With the exception of Solyndra, the track record for renewable energy investments is strong. In fact, the failure rate is lower than Congress anticipated when they created these programs -- and, while we're on the topic, higher than Romney's 80% success rate at Bain Capital."
Some of the jobs they classified as green jobs are a hoot.........spreading fertilizer........is a green job........picking your nose is a green job......and potty training after eating chopped spinich is a green job.

From the Republican point of view a healthy middle class is pure socialism. If the wealth of the country isn't in the hands of the corporate elite and the political system isn't under their control, then we have government of the people, by the people and for the people, a political system they despise because it sounds like democracy. They hate democracy with its equal rights for
minorities, its assurance that every citizen will
have the right to vote.

The choice is between the elite corporate rule the
Republicans favor or the people themselves having
the right to make the important choices.

What do we want, Republican Fascism or American
democracy?

Jackass Obama has been greasing Green Deals that have 2 things in Common:
1) They Go Bankrupt at an astonishing rate.
2) They take Millions or Billions of Tax Payer $$$ and move to China.
....
I'll refute your assertions in order:
1. In fact, 2.7 million green U.S. jobs were created in 2010.

Here's what America's energy policy should be:
1. Increase domestic oil & gas production to provide fuel for the present.

2. Invest in green energy for the future so we can steadly decrease our dependence on fossil fuels.

And he will continue to flip-flop (lie) on every issue right up to the day he either loses or gets elected. If elected, he will immediately be in contact with his church elders in Salt Lake City
to see what the plan is.

As soon as he gets the word from the High Pooh-Bah in the Temple,
who is, naturally, in daily contact with God Himself, he
might just let the rest of us know what it is. Maybe not.

His only real obligation is to the Mormon Church.

Jill Stein represent delusional 'green' liberal communist who seeks the destruction of American private sector and building new 'green' world order of the poor by the poor with the 'rich' gone and disappear from America. The foreign agenda of China that is represented Obama is killing jobs in America and supports the Chinese Yen's manipulation which moves jobs and technology fro US to China. Undoubtedly, David Siegel is a great American entrepreneur who spent his time and money to build a company that provides jobs to 7000. However, Obama is fighting the entrepreneurs that get high salaries and they became the enemy of the American people according to the Obama’s owned liberal socialistic press led by the NY Times, Washington Post, AP and ABC. With the new socialistic Obama care hoax starting within few months, the taxes on the private sector will soar and they will lose their profits and become losers that cannot pay salaries of their employees and therefore will have to close the business. That is exactly what the Destroyer of America Barack Hussein Obama studied in Madrassa in Indonesia the rules of Jihad war against America is seeking. Self destruction of America by more and more taxes by the Obama and his forty Maoist czars will cause the bankruptcy of millions of small businesses that provide employment to tens of millions Americas. Obama will send checks of few hundred dollars a months to all the unemployed and become the dictator of the American people. David Seigel is right to warn the stupid and ignorant Americans who support the Mozlem Brother communist sympathizer Obama who serves the foreign interests that seek the bankruptcy of America and trashing its constitution with lies and deceit of the liberal faceless media of crooks. The hated “rich” will disappear from America and will go to the islands while the Americans will lose their jobs and stay with their evil dictator that will feed them with soup kitchens.
