    It wouldn't of been a waste of money had they been a success. What if we had invested in Microsoft?

    Incorrect, of course. Green energy was part of Obama's campaign platform and he won the election.

    Solyndra didn't work out, but when you are investing in cutting edge technology you don't expect a 100% success rate -- or anything close to it.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Considering he campaigned on investing in green technology and won the election, I'd say the voters did say so.

    Indeed, 83% of Texans approve of government investment in green energy.

    How do you know it hasn't been a success? Troops returning from there say it has been a success. The govt. has no business "investing" taxpayer dollars in any business. That is the role of the individual and the private sector

    Is that the reason he has a 38% JAR today?

    No, that would be because about 40% of the country is going to disapprove no matter what, while those that once approved disapprove because he keeps caving to those who disapprove.

    Or maybe most of the country sees higher unemployment today than when he took office, 25 million unemployed and under employed, 4.2 trillion added to the debt, no transparency and deals like Solyndra and Sun Power, a rising misery index, very low GDP growth, and total lack of Presidential leadership. Couldn't that be part of the problem?
