Hold on to your wallets: Obama pledges to double down on clean energy


**Written by Doug Powers


nullnull


The debt has increased over $5 trillion since Obama took office (cleaning up Bush’s mess was expensive), so we’ll see in November how this “double down” talk goes over, especially when he’s talking about doubling down in a graveyard of taxpayer money that’s littered with bankruptcy after bankruptcy.


This is President Obama in Michigan yesterday:



I want clean energy to happen here in the United States. I want advanced batteries made here in the Unites States. I want electric cars made here in the United States. I want solar and wind power made here in the United States. We’ve been subsidizing oil companies with taxpayer giveaways for about a hundred years now. It’s time to double down on clean energy that’s never been more promising.



And with great examples like this and this and this and this and this and this and these, how could anybody not get caught up in the promise?


Video by way of HAP:



2008′s speeches are going to be a tougher sell in 2012.


The comments are too good not to include.Laughing

    Stop bastardizing the language. Taking LESS of something that is THEIRS is NOT a subsidy. Marxist.

    It ain’t stupid he’s doubling down on….its the fundamental destruction of our economy at our expense and for the enrichment of his mentors and specific corporate cronies here and abroad.

    Maybe just the same ones…..wanting even more while the getting is still good. The hunger for amassing fabulous wealth and power can never be satiated for people such as Soros, et al.

    Complicated, novel product developments typically fail 9 out of 10 times.


    There is a private capital market for this type of thing, with investors that are willing to bet against these odds. It is referred to as, “the bleeding edge of technology”.


    Having the government spew cash over everything has prolonged the ideas that should die and made it tougher for the truly good ones to gain traction and succeed in this field. This is wreaking more havoc than if no subsidies were granted at all.

    And of course he calls a tax break a “subsidy”, but handouts to his friends are “investments”.


    I guess if he wasn’t lying, he’d have nothing to say.

    I want Obama to stop wasting money on Green Energy Failures. I want Obama to stop wasting money on a stimulous that doesn’t work. I want Obama to stop playing golf so much. I want Obama to quit appointing czars who do nothing but collect paychecks. I want Obama to stop sending his children to vacations in Mexico. I want Obama to quit saying “punching above your weight”. I want Obama to publish his educational records. I want Obama to run faster down aircraft ladders. I want Obama to quit going to Martha’s Vineyard. I want Obama to drive a Volt everywhere he goes. I want Obama to set an example and run the White House on nothing but solar energy. I want Obama to stop pretending he’s a basketball star. I want Obama to tell his wife not to spend a million dollars a year of the taxpayer’s money on her “staff”. I want Obama to stop his “you’re an idiot laugh” when someone asks him a question he doesn’t like. I want Obama to stop lying. I want Obama to keep his promises.
    BASICALLY: I WANT OBAMA UNEMPLOYED (from the federal government) NEXT YEAR.

    My response: I understand that you want it, but that doesn’t mean you’re going to get it. And the more you whine about wanting it, the less likely it is to happen.


    Obama really is a petulant youth, isn’t he?


    This already applied to Gore, but Obama’s heading this way as well:

    Oh, we’ll make it.


    We will just have to resort to subsistence lifestyle, and genuflect to any government offical. Electricity, if you still have it, will go off at 8 p.m. every night. Bicycles and electric buses. A small military, just big enough to guard Washington, D.C.

    Most 2 year olds outgrow their petulance with helpful parental discipline and guidance. Obeyme’s was deliberately fed and allowed to fester this far into his adult life for such a time as this. he’s a useful tool.

    For other needs the military will still be needed, such as to root us out, heard us into re-education camps and keep the rest of the public in its place. Of course they probably will outsource. Non-Americans are less likely to be squeemish in practicing the necessary harsh treatment.

    A sensible person might and probably would quit and accept defeat….for leftists, failure is a simply a temporary obstacle and a challenge to overcome by any means and however much treasury spent and blood spilled in attaining that eventual prize : A Perfect Leftist Statist Utopia.

Obama pledges to double down on clean energy


Good..............because only an insane person would


be against exploring alternate energy sources.



Also only an insane person would be stupid enough


to vote for Romney knowing that he wants to return


to the same disastrous economic policies that W instituted to destroy the US economy.
