Are Obama’s Bain Negative Ads making Inroads Against Romney … Too Bad Fact Check.org Says “Obama’s Outsourcer Overreach” … Barack, What About Your GE Outsourcing Jobs Advisor Immelt?
Far be it from Barack Obama and his reelection minions to lets facts get in the way of a smear political ad.
The New York Times continues the story of Barack Obama’s negative attacks on Mitt Romney and Bain Capital stating that they are making inroads against Romney. However, too bad that they are false, but why would the truth ever get in the way of the Obama administration and especially his reelection team. FACT CHECK.ORG states that the “outsourcing” claims by Obama’s political ads a a stretch …”The president’s campaign fails to back up its claims that Romney ‘shipped jobs’ overseas.” Does anyone really think that Obama and Democrats care much about presenting the truth when Obama just perpetrated the greatest hoax and “bait and switch” on the American people with Obamacare? Obama misrepresented his health care plan to the People as not a tax, then defended it to the Supreme court as a tax.
WAKE UP AMERICA, IT IS PRESIDENT OBAMA WHO HAS OUTSOURCED GREEN JOBS TO OTHER COUNTRIES WITH YOU TAX DOLLARS. Barack Obama is the real “Outsourcer” in Chief.
Propelled by a torrent of blistering television advertisements, President Obama is successfully invoking Mitt Romney’s career at Bain Capital to raise questions about his commitment to the middle class, strategists in both parties say, as the candidates engage in a critical summer duel to set the terms for this fall.
Despite doubts among some Democrats about the wisdom of attacking Mr. Romney’s business career, Obama commercials painting him as a ruthless executive who pursued profits at the expense of jobs are starting to make an impact on some undecided voters, according to strategists from both sides, who differ on whether they are causing any substantial damage.
Legal Insurrection is 100% correct, the Obama- Bain attacks are poorly done and false. However, even when something is poorly states and a falsehood is said enough by the liberal MSM complex, it becomes its own truthful narrative.

Abound Solar Inc, Another DOE Company Awarded a $400 Million US Loan Guarantee Ceases Operations & Files Bankruptcy
Green energy solar company bankruptcies abound …
Add Abound Solar Inc, a Colorado based company, to the long list of so-called “green” company that made solar panels and had received Department of Energy loans has ceased operations and is filing bankruptcy. As President Barack Obama criticizes Mitt Romney for his work with Bain Capital, one might also want to ask Obama about his job creation skills with “belly up” companies like Abound Solar.
Abound Solar Inc., a U.S. solar manufacturer that was awarded a $400 million U.S. loan guarantee, will suspend operations and file for bankruptcy because its panels were too expensive to compete.
Abound borrowed about $70 million against the guarantee, the Loveland, Colorado-based company said today in a statement. It plans to file for bankruptcy protection in Wilmington, Delaware, next week.
The failure will follow that of Solyndra LLC, which shut down in August after receiving a $535 million loan guarantee from the same U.S. Energy Department program. Abound stopped production in February to focus on reducing costs after a global oversupply and increasing competition from China drove down the price of solar panels by half last year.
Great point made by the American Thinker with regards to these failed American solar panel companies.
I really wish these companies – and the government – would stop blaming China for their failures. China may be subsidizing their solar companies but in case you didn’t notice, so are we. The fact that we gave this loan guarantee to a sure fire loser of a company keeps proving the point about this idiotic energy department program; trying to pick winners in the alternative energy business is too risky for taxpayers to foot the bill if the bureaucrats are wrong.
Just more wasted tax payer money down the Obama “green” rabbit hole.
Barack Obama Green Jobs … Bus Driver of Hybrid Bus, Any School Bus Driver, Sweeper of Floor at Solar Plant, Bicycle Shop Clerks & Porta-Potty Cleaners Considered Green Jobs (VIDEO)
What a joke … under Barack Obama and his so-called “Green” job agenda, the Labor Department “has jeopardized the integrity of employment data in some cases for clearly political reasons.” Bus drivers and bicycle shop clerks are considered “green” jobs. Far be it from the Obama administration to actually report green jobs appropriately. What, Obama inflate job numbers, say it isn’t so! As Bill Clinton would say, it all depends on what “green”, is.
The Obama administration on Wednesday acknowledged a wide-ranging definition of “green jobs” that includes bus driver, bicycle-shop clerk and other unexpected lines of employment, which the chairman of the GOP-led House oversight committee said is being done for “clearly political purposes.”
GOP Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, made the assertion during a hearing on how the administration counts so-called green jobs and the Labor Department’s recent change to how reporters can access key unemployment reports and other information.

check out 3:15 where Issa asks what is an Obama green job
The Labor Department “has jeopardized the integrity of employment data in some cases for clearly political reasons,” he said.
Issa suggested the administration is reclassifying such jobs to prove that billions of taxpayer dollars, through the federal stimulus program, have created green, or environmentally-focused jobs – a major initiative for President Obama.
YUP … The most transparent Presidency, EVAH!!!
Happy Anniversary Barack Obama … Two Years Ago Today Obama Celebrates Solyndra … “The true engine of economic growth will always be companies like Solyndra.” … Too Bad It’s Bankrupt
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO BARRACK OBAMA AND SOLYNDRA …
Today is the two year anniversary of President Barack Obama traveling to Freemont, CA and touting the green energy company Solyndra as a “brighter and more prosperous future”. One has to look no further as to why the US economy and job growth is in the crapper than to listen to Obama’s words of praise regarding Solyndra, ”The true engine of economic growth will always be companies like Solyndra.” Really? Obama’s shining example of “green” energy and the future did not take long to go bankrupt.
But on this day in 2010, with Solyndra already facing serious obstacles, President Obama was filled with optimism. “The true engine of economic growth will always be companies like Solyndra,” the president said. “Less than a year ago, we were standing on what was an empty lot. But through the Recovery Act, this company received a loan to expand its operations. This new factory is the result of those loans.”
“We’ve placed a big emphasis on clean energy,” Obama continued. “It’s the right thing to do for our environment, it’s the right thing to do for our national security, but it’s also the right thing to do for our economy…When it’s completed in a few months, Solyndra expects to hire a thousand workers to manufacture solar panels and sell them across America and around the world.”
Hey Barack, how is that Solyndra-greeny thing working out for you today? We have no jobs, but we got solar panel toxic waste.
It is rather comical and disingenuous that Obama and his minions attack Mitt Romney for his days at Bain Capital and failures of Bain when Obama has a laundry list of failed green energy companies on his record. Does Barack Obama really want to compare his failed “public equity” financing record versus Mitt Romney’s private equity record?
Green Energy, Solar Hazardous Waste??? Solyndra Maybe Bankrupt & Gone … No Jobs, No Stimulus Money … But We Got Toxic Waste
More from Obama’s “green” energy failure …
Solyndra may be bankrupt, so-called green jobs gone, the buildings for sale and $535 million of tax payer stimulus dollars evaporated into thin air, but according to CBS5 in San Fransisco … we have toxic waste. Hmm, the “Greenies” never mentioned the leftover hazardous materials dangerous to the environment bi-products of green energy.
Three months ago, CBS 5 caught Solyndra tossing millions of dollars worth of brand new glass tubes used to make solar panels. Now the bankrupt solar firm, once touted as a symbol of green technology, may be trying to abandon toxic waste.
It’s a tedious process. Slowly but surely, the shattered remains of brand new solar panel tubes head to a recycling plant in Hayward.
Meanwhile the next phase of the company’s liquidation is under way. It involves getting rid of all the heavy metals left inside the building that were used to make the panels.

Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin.com brings up a rather interesting dichotomy when it comes to so-called “green” energy.
As you read this keep in mind that the whole pitch for projects like Solyndra revolves around “clean” energy and saving the environment — which is harder to take seriously every time the term “solar waste” is used to describe the potentially dangerous aftermath.
Another Obama Green Energy Company Bites the Dust … Solar Trust Files Bankruptcy … Tax Payers Out Billions
Another one of Barack Obama’s “green” energy companies bites the dust . Solar Trust of America files bankruptcy. But don’t worry, its not like this was a Solydra, it was worse. The U.S. Department of Energy had awarded a $2.1 billion loan guarantee to Solar Trust of America for a solar thermal power plant near Blythe, CA. That is correct tax payers … $2.1 billion!!!
2.1 Billion Dollars BA-HA-HA-HA
Quickly running out of money, solar-project developer Solar Trust of America LLC filed for bankruptcy before it could finish a multibillion-dollar solar plant in California that was planned to generate electricity as one of the world’s largest solar-power projects.
The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Delaware on Monday after majority owner Solar Millennium AG—now under the control of a German bankruptcy professional—stopped putting money into the company.
Who knew that we would look back upon the bankruptcy of Solyndra as a drop in the tax payers wasted money bucket? Just how many “green” jobs have been lost under Obama?
The Lonely Conservative opines that Barack Obama is making the political rounds on the campaign trail saying the Republicans want to cut his investments in green companies. And Obama thinks that doubling down and defending “green” companies that have lost the American tax payers billions of dollars is a winning argument? Really? No wonder he has switched to now making not so vale threats to the SCOTUS.
Think this is not a hot button issue for the 2012 election that is simmering beneath the surface? “We the People” are getting sick and tired of Obama picking “winners and losers”, mainly losers with our money.
Hmm … sorry, delayed post, got hung up in scheduler.
Another White House Document Dump Shows the Obama White House Was “All Hands on Deck” in Reaction to Solyndra’s Imminent Collapse
How come President Barack Obama does not take the same credit for his involvement in Solyndra as he falsely tries to now do for the Keystone XL Pipeline?
The Barack Obama Administration gave millions to Solyndra in wasted tax payer stimulus money and touted it as their “shining green energy company on the hill”. Now Obama and his minions cannot run fast enough away from the bankrupt solar energy panel. Just a couple of days ago, Obama said that Solyndra “was not our program per se.” Obama actually blamed Congress for its failure. Dear Mr. President, you can run but you cannot hide. This scandal is going to follow you to election day. Barack Obama can not run from the truth even if they attempt to continue Friday night document dumps when they think no one is looking.
Obama & WH minions, all hands on deck, per se …
The latest document dump as reported by The Hill shows that the Obama White House was all-hands-on-deck as the Solyndra collapse neared. Obama and his minions knew how deep they were in the Solyndra mess and also knew this was a political mess for Obama.
Several key White House offices were involved with the Obama administration’s messaging plans and other preparations as the collapse of the taxpayer-backed solar company Solyndra was imminent, newly released documents show.
The latest White House documents delivered to House Republicans on Friday again highlight the extent to which senior administration officials braced for the fallout as Solyndra – a company President Obama had personally visited – was about to go under.
A White House memo that noted the danger of “imminent bankruptcy” at the end of August 2011 says, “OMB, DPC and NEC have been working with press and OLA to be prepared for this news to break.”
Just curious, why would the Obama White House be so concerned and be in panic mode about Solyndra going belly up if as Doug Powers opines at Michelle Malkin.com, “the bad news from a program that wasn’t theirs… per se.” Touché!!! The PJ Tatler asks the same question that has become obvious to all, “Why Was His Administration in Fire Drill Mode as it Collapsed? Instead, Obama shamefully blamed Congress for Solyndra’s failure and tried to distance himself from his hand picked green company. Listen HERE to Obama’s unbelievable comments that where The “Lying” King told Marketplace that “this was not our program.”
It is obvious that Solyndra was nothing about job creation, it was politics that dominated Obama’s green energy program, not job creation. The voters might want to remember in November.
Obamanomics & Green Energy: US Taxpayers Pay Solar Firm ‘First Solar’ to Sell Solar Panels to Itself
As gas prices continue to skyrocket out of control, President Obama heads out to shill for his failed “green” energy agenda. Take a good look at the shell game that is being played at the expense of ‘We the People”.
Obamanomics … You just can’t make this stuff up. Thanks to Barack Obama and his ‘green” energy agenda, American tax payers actually subsidized First Solar, a solar company that received a US taxpayer loan guarantee to sell solar panels. The problem, the company sold the solar panels to itself. UNREAL!
Every wonder why our economy is in disarray under Obama? Barack Obama and his minions are actually trying to make solar energy appear more viable than it really is. Welcome to the Obama green energy shell game where the buyer and seller are the same individual.
A heavily subsidized solar company received a U.S. taxpayer loan guarantee to sell solar panels to itself.
First Solar is the company. The subsidy came from the Export-Import Bank, which President Obama and Harry Reid are currently fighting to extend and expand. The underlying issue is how Obama’s insistence on green-energy subsidies and export subsidies manifests itself as rank corporate welfare.
Here’s the road of subsidies these solar panels followed from Perrysburg, Ohio, to St. Clair, Ontario.
First Solar is an Arizona-based manufacturer of solar panels. In 2010, the Obama administration awarded the company $16.3 million to expand its factory in Ohio — a subsidy Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland touted in his failed re-election bid that year.
Connect the dots of Obama’s solar energy corporate welfare … This reminds me of a ‘Married With Children’ episode where Peg was selling cosmetics and making a commission from the sales. The only problem was she was taking Al’s money to pay for the product. At least Peg Bundy was not using American tax payer dollars to claim she made a profit.
After First Solar pocketed this $17.3 million in government grants and $15 million in government loans, Ex-Im entered the scene.
In September 2011, Ex-Im approved $455.7 million in loan guarantees to subsidize the sale of solar panels to two solar farms in Canada. That means if the solar farm ever defaults, the taxpayers pick up the tab, ensuring First Solar gets paid.
But the buyer, in this case, was First Solar.
Just ahead of the Bureau of Labor Statistics this morning with the official unemployment report for the month of February, Gallup says that the actual unemployment rate is at 9.1%. Much like Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin.com, I believe that the unemployment rate will increase from 8.3%. Of course Obama and his minions will spin this as a positive. So what will the actual unemployment number be that is reported? Tune in at 8:30am on Friday morning.
ADP report predicts 216,000 new jobs:
Employment in the U.S. nonfarm private business sector increased by 216,000 from January to
February on a seasonally adjusted basis. The estimated advance in employment from December
to January was revised slightly upwards to 173,000 from the initially reported 170,000.
Employment in the private, service-providing sector rose 170,000 in February, and employment
in the private, goods-producing sector increased 46,000 in February. Manufacturing
employment increased 21,000.
UPDATE I: Unemployment rate at 8.3% for February 2012 … does any one really believe this manipulated number? The Jobs recession Now 49 Months: Longest Since WWII. Just curious, what would happen if we cut off all unemployment benefits for those presently receiving them and forced all to enter the active jobs market and seek jobs … how high do you think the unemployment rate would be?
GM Pulls Plug on Volt and Suspends Production, Lays off 1300 Workers … Just Days Earlier Obama Just Praised Volt
GM pulls the plug on the Chevy Volt and lays off 1300 workers … Welcome to Obama Motors.
More bad news for the Barack Obama endorsed Volt. All Obama’s horses and all Obama’s stimulus money cannot save the failed sales if the Volt. General Motors announced that the company was suspending production of the Chevy Volt and 1,300 workers would be laid off. After all, should the American tax payers have paid more than $10,000 subsidies per vehicle?
Fool Moment of the Week: Obama praises Volt … days before GM lays off workers and suspends Volt production
General Motors has told 1,300 employees at its Detroit Hamtramck that they will be temporarily laid off for five weeks as the company halts production of the Chevrolet Volt and its European counterpart, the Opel Ampera.
“Even with sales up in February over January, we are still seeking to align our production with demand,” said GM spokesman Chris Lee.
Lee said employees were told Thursday that production would put on hold from March 19 to April 23.
How comical, President Barack Obama just endorsed GM’s (Government Motors) struggling Chevrolet Volt, saying he plans to buy the extended-range electric vehicle upon leaving office in five years. With ignorant, mistimed and clueless comments like this, Obama just might be buying a Volt in one year. Once again we are witness to the Barack Obama kiss of death. Yet another failed green company/product courtesy of Obama.
“Five years from now when I’m not president anymore, I’ll buy one and drive it myself,” Obama said to applause during a speech Tuesday to 1,600 workers and retirees from the United Auto Workers union. “Yes, that’s right.”
Recalling that event, Obama forgot he had actually driven the Volt, saying that the “Secret Service wouldn’t let me drive it. But I liked sitting in it. It was nice.I’ll bet it drives real good.”
GM had hoped to sell 45,000 Chevy Volts in America this year,; however, according to reports they had only sold about 1,626 over the first two months of 2012. A whopping 603 Volts in January 2012. Maybe GM and Obama can still market the Volt to aliens.
But of course the lagging Volt sales have nothing to do with the fact that there is little to no interest in electric cars, Michelle Malkin.com has the real culprit who is to blame. GM of course blames the media. Really?
