One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.

Re: Obamaís Taxpayer-Backed Green Energy Failures
What you and many others fail to understand is that these companies don't have a chance as long as the big energy and oil corporations are around and keeping us enslaved to them. Obama had the right idea however if the public wants to continue to buy gasoline powered cars and pay the utility companies instead of investing in green energy then it's a no win situation. It's actually very sad.

You know, I never hear a dem say "yea, this was a failure on Obama's part", or "yea he could of done that better"

It's always.."Oh yea, well look what Bush did" "Oh yea well Romney did it too"

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18304550


What you dont' understand is that there has to be something in place to use a particular source of energy before it can be implemented. That takes a very long time and a lot of work to get ready for a new technology.

Obama is trying to just do it instantly as though these technologies to use the green energy already exist when in fact they do not.

Case in point his pledge to bankrupt the coal industry BEFORE there is anything to take it's place in the production of electricity. It's going to be a major disaster for our utility bills because of Obama using our tax money prematurely like this to buy himself votes from his cronies.

He's not "trying to do it instantly".
That's what he says. What he's actually doing is bankrupting Republican businesses (oil, coal), and funneling pay-back to his contributors (unions, Communist China, traitors like Soros).
