Obama created 11 Green Energy companies for over $500,000,000,000., and 9 of them failed. How much money do we throw away before the one Democrat with a brain says enough already? Well, there has to be one. No? You are right.

you are so unbelievably stupid - out of 63 renewable energy companies grants were allocated to, 58 are still in business - a failure rate of only 8% you idiot;

10 most expensive energy projects in the world

10 most expensive energy projects in the world

Our growing thirst for energy means today's projects dwarf most past endeavors. The Hoover Dam cost $49 million in 1936. Adjusted for inflation, that's only $825 million today.

But a spokesman for the Energy Department said that agency has dozens of programs that funded over 1,300 companies in the renewable energy space, and that less than 1% have gone bankrupt -- also true.

"So just how many federally-funded energy companies have failed?

A total of five have gone bankrupt, according to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. All of the failed companies that the Committee identified came from just two programs that received significant dollar amounts from the Department of Energy. Those two programs funded 63 firms. The other 58 are still in business. That's a failure rate of about 8%."

Have facts before you spout your beak off.

That was dumb of me - you NEVER give a single verifiable link of fact.

Here's some Green Energy TRUTH, courtesy Forbes, no less:

http://www.forbes.com/sites/manishbapna/2012/...

Myth 1: Funding renewable energy is a waste of taxpayers’ money
In fact, federal investments in solar, wind and geothermal companies, largely through stimulus funds, proved to be a success.

Of the 26 companies and projects that received clean energy loan guarantees under the 2009 American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA), only three have failed – an impressive record given that venture capitalists cite a 70% failure rate as typical for have start-ups.

Myth 2: The clean energy market is failing
Many experts and investors, among them Warren Buffet, forecast a bright future for the clean energy market. Yet over the past year the U.S. solar and wind companies have struggled. So, what’s going on?

Looking at the big picture, wind and solar power are now close to cost competitiveness with fossil fuels.

Myth 3: Environmental regulations are destroying the coal industry
This concern is frequently voiced vociferously by industry, most recently over EPA standards that would cut dangerous carbon and mercury pollution from coal plants.

Yet fears of harmful impacts of environmental standards on business are grossly overstated. Environmental standards typically end up costing much less than industry predictions, and even than EPA’s own projections. Overall, environmental costs generally fall below 2% of total business costs.

Ooops, sorry Righties! LOL

Just more partisan propaganda from the failed GOPee. They can't compete in the marketplace of ideas, they live in the past, they're owned and operated by Corporate America, and their ideology is evolving along National Socialist Party lines, so they've got little other choice than to spend most of their time lying and obstructing the business of State.
It's all they've got left, sadly...
Relax. It looks like you and the other Orwellians who want to bring American down are winning. You won last November.
