"More than 13 percent of the $700 billion American Recovery Act went to energy spending, most of it green" That 9 billion went to line the pockets of obamas supporters her and overseas. Solyndra was only the tip of the iceberg and received the most attention. Money also went to companies in Europe and Asia... how is that for exporting jobs! How much did algore make from the pork that obama handed out?

jim(4), instead of viewing this as yet another loaded political opportunity to bash the other side, how about thinking of the long term future of our country and world? When you were a kid, I'll bet you dad told you to shut the door so he didn't have to pay to heat the outdoors. This is the same thing. Why would we not want to find better ways to generate and utilize energy? It is not a conservative or liberal thing. It is a common sense thing and I wish morons from both sides would stop politicizing it.
