The second list was headed “Obama’s Socialism” – President Obama invested billions of taxpayer dollars in: Solyndra (bankrupt), Enter 1 (bankrupt), Beacon Power (bankrupt), Abound Solar (bankrupt), Spectra Watt (bankrupt) and Eastern Energy (bankrupt). Each of the above defunct organizations contributed money to President Obama.
Redistribution meets crony capitalism? Consider how the president sounded when he flippantly admitted the shovel-ready jobs weren’t quite shovel ready. Consider the fear in the hearts of 23 million underemployed and unemployed Americans.
This election is about jobs. Who do you think would be better at creating jobs during the next four years, the guy who has actually done it or the guy who has offered nothing but spending, deficits and failed government control?
