Solyndra, Beacon Power, Abound Solar

Another company that the Obama administration invested in has gone bankrupt.  Surprise surprise.  If the renewable energy market was profitable, the private sector would invest in it.  But instead, tax payers are forced to pay for an industry that is a huge inefficient waste of money.  Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of clean energy, but there is an intelligent way to do it.  Steady progress without killing all other industries and the jobs that go with them.  But some things can't be written in the same sentence like "Obama and intelligent" and "government and efficient..." unless of course the word "not" comes before them.

If Obama cared at all about the middle class then he would have put energy policies that helped them as Romney plans to do.  America is so rich with resources throwing that all away is a sign of arrogance and ignorance.  We have the resources to become energy independent.  Why is this great?  Because we can employ many people by harvesting our own coal, oil, and natural gas while we fairly and steadily invest in biofuels, wind, solar, electric, and nuclear.  We can bring down gas prices so that middle class Americans can afford to drive to work, take their children to activities, and heat their homes in the winter.  You know what also uses energy?  Every single business.
