obama is god isn't he ? he just needs to outlaw friction ..... there are plenty of synthetic lubes out there and plenty of alternatives to gasoline (nat gas for one) already out there. problem is their much more expensive and typically only rich aszholes like obama can afford it.

its real simple to do so easy,just find the blue prints for the electric trucks and cars that was sold in the u.s.a. in the 1930 until the 40s and big oil had them removed from the roads.while they are doing this,pull up the records on how Studebaker and several other car makers where building 4.000 pound tank like cars,and getting 27 up to 40 mile per gallon,these cars where put out by the so called horsepower wars of the 50s..hell a old ford son tractor runs on a pint of fuel a hour.my old 60 model tandem axle dump truck with Detroit diesel engine gets around 20 miles per gallon.carrying 15 tons of gravel.Studebaker electric car traveled around 300 miles with a full battery charge and top speed around 70 mph.but back then electric was scarce.

What is a couple of billion it is not his money, who cares. It will just be a magnet for corruption like solyndra.

If he really wanted to do something he would just put a reward out there to the first person who could come up with a better battery. Post the goal and when someone meets it, they get the prize and the technology is licensed to who ever wants to use it to make better electric cars.

President Obama and the democrats have investments in these businesses and the republicans are mad they didn't get in early on the investments.

Again: the American people LOSE OUT!

All these politicians get the 'heads up' about what the government spending will be allocated for and they 'invest' to reap the benefits.

The People get screwed from ALL of the politicians.
Don't believe that President Obama is above all this. His 'blind' investments have made Michelle and he, millionaires over and over, and in FOUR YEARS time, yes, FOUR YEARS time, while the rest of America was LOSING MONEY!(Just think how much they will have built up after EIGHT YEARS of so called 'blind' investments.)

You voted for a loser that has failed EVERY green energy attempt he's made. The biggest success in green energy production and usage comes from one of his biggest oponents, moron. You voted for a guy that throws taxpayer money to every criminal that claims they have a solution.

Obama learned from Solyndra. Giving them $528 MILLION wasn't near enough money. This time around we need to, at least, double down.

He invested a whole lot more in looking for Osama bin Laden… what do you have to say about that?

The book No Easy Day and Zero Dark Thirty both verify the hunt for bin laden started.......and continued until found by the policies of Bush...which obama used and then thumped his chest to claim they were his. LMAO Please tell us how he changed Bush policies...the Seals that got bin laden said the hunt went on for 10 years. The half of the country that didn't vote for him kept the house and kept enough in the senate to prevent his massive failed programs from his first term with a full dem congress from happening again. You didn't WIN anything, clown.

They were all nobama backers, screwball. Solyndra, nevanda geothermal and many more donated to noblumbers campaign WITH the promise of tax dollars.

All failed........execs got mega bonuses...taxpayers got screwed.

Bush and Cheney weren't involved....idiot.
