"I will invest $15 billion a year in renewable sources of energy to create five million new energy jobs over the next decade - jobs that pay well and can't be outsourced." - Obama

Please refresh our memory.
How much of Obama's Porkulus went overseas?
... solar panels built in Mexico with Porkulus money and the Solyndra bankruptcy scam.... hmmmmmmm.....

North Carolina-Based LED maker Cree Inc. received Over $39 Million through Porkulus and later opened its first, that's FIRST, plant in China. Over half the company's employees are located in China.
Sempra received $337 Million for a solar plant. The solar panels are supplied by SunTech, a Chinese manufacturer.

Remember Obama's economic guru Jeffry Imelt, CEO of GE?
General Electric cancelled an order from wind turbine manufacturer ATI casting in order to get the parts cheaper from China. After ATI offered to match the price, GE still refused the order. ATI was forced to lay off 302 workers due to Obama sending our money to China.
GE also used Chinese-made wind towers over American-made towers at the Stimulus-funded Shepherds Flat Wind Farm in Oregon.

SunPower stated that the solar panels for the 1.3 Billion dollar stimulus-backed California Solar Valley Ranch will be manufactured at their facility in Mexico rather than their facility in California.
(I guess we'll be picking up the tab for that hit to the economy of California, too.)

ABB, Inc., received $16 Million in Porkulus funds to create green energy manufacturing jobs. The company has laid off workers in the US and transferred that work to Mexico.

... and on, and on, and on....

Now, please tell us who's outsourcing jobs overseas....

To protect the next guy at the pump?
But lobbyists are involved...
'Slower demand for gasoline, however, has made the ethanol targets for each year difficult to meet. So now producers are over-supplying a government-created market. Instead of working to develop a product that consumers want to purchase, ethanol interests want the government to create an even larger artificial market for ethanol. One way was to encourage the EPA to allow for a higher percentage of ethanol to be blended into gasoline.'

Not even a nice try. You keep going back to this like a dog with a bone buried in the yard. Forget it Carol. "That was then, this is now"..........this isn’t 1980, Romney is no Reagan and Obama is no Carter.
It is stunning that the Romney campaign continues to rely on this flawed historical comparison. First, the polling. Despite the mythologizing to the contrary, Gallup polling shows that Reagan was leading Carter heading into the conventions. John Sides has suggested Reagan may have actually led throughout most of the race. By contrast, as Alex Burns puts it,“we’re now less than 60 days from the election and Romney hasn’t established a decisive lead in a single swing state.” Spot the difference there?
There are plenty of other key differences. The economy was in worse shape in 1980 than it is today. Jimmy Carter could easily be criticized for mismanaging the economy and foreign affairs, given the Iranian hostage crisis. Obama, by contrast, consistently polls better than Romney on national security.
What’s more, as Reagan biographer Craig Shirley has explained, the electorate of 1980 is vastly different than it is today. Far more states were in play, and Dem swing voters — the so-called “Reagan Democrats”— formed a much bigger chunk of the Democratic Party, making a late break of such a significant magnitude much more feasible than today. The electorate is far more polarized and the map far narrower this time around.
Ed Rollins, who worked on the Reagan campaign in 1980, notes yet another key difference: Romney is not Reagan, and Obama is not Carter. As Rollins says of Romney:“On his best day, he’s not a Ronald Reagan.” Carter was partly undone because of his debate performance; that’s less likely to happen to Obama.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line...
The "then and now" was a comparison of Obama's approval in the Washington Times in two swing states, Florida and Virgina, having dropped significantly in 2011.

You're right, Romney is not Reagan. But the state of the union at the end of Carter's first term and this president's is strikingly similar.
