You fools who voted for Obama got him, lord knows what he is going to do this time around. Can you believe this s#hit.

Obama borrows money from China to pay for his $800 billion stimulus bill, and then gambled these funds away on now-bankrupt green energy ventures,

Now a Chinese company buys the company for pennies on the dollar leaving the US taxpayers to repay interest to China for a business that a Chinese company now owns.

But it gets better, when you look at the company that bought the Obama energy folly you learn that it is Wanxiang, China's largest auto parts supplier. So guess what is next, cars from china to compete with the union Obama rescued in Detroit using technology we paid for on the installment plan from China. But don't worry that is 5 to 10 years down the road and I am sure you believe Obama will solve the worlds problems by then.
