Is this why you voted democrat? We needed to save the economy and the planet. Stimulus and Green jobs ...?
... that is what it was all about in late 2008. We were ruining our environment and we were in a melt down in our economy so Obama's solution seemed like a no brainer. We need to create jobs and while we are at it lets make them Green jobs. Like alternative energy wind plants, solar cells, geothermal, etc etc. Now what happened as a result of us voting in Obama and the super majority Democrat Congress? Here's an ABC news link in case you would like to check out how it all worked out. http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/video/green-stimulus-jobs-china-9791423 btw... I am all for alternative energy. In fact I make my own bio fuel which I burn in my truck and I save 1000's of trees every year but I take issue with sending our stimulus money to China. It was supposed to stimulate our economy, not China's. Are the Democrats in power really that poor at thinking things through or do they just not care? edit to Brandon S... I looked at your first link and did not see a chart anywhere. I looked at your second link which was a choice for a bunch of other links and one of them said in the first paragraph that Bush was the first president since H. Hoover to preside over a decline in employment. I guess they forgot to look at the presidency of Jimmy Carter. I think there were also a few others inbetween Hoover and Bush to see employment decline. Where do you get these sources. one more comment. did you check out the link? This was from ABC news, not Fox or some Conservative Blog. But it seems only one or two watched the report anchored by Diane Sawyer, also not a Conservative pundint by any means.

This is exactly why I DID NOT vote democratic. Having a little bit of insight into the alternative energy businness I know that we do not build enough solar panels in this country to satisfy domestic consumption. I know many of the companies involved in wind power like GE, Vestas and Siemens actually build components... More

I have always voted Republican, but now that all the lies are being exposed I don't think I ever will again except for Ron Paul.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Look at California. The environmentalists have a stranglehold on the economy and refuse to let go, even as the state suffocates. True liberal insanity on display.

The Democrat mantra must go something like this: "We'll pursue whatever "solutions" that make sense to us because that is what we were taught in Liberal colleges - any YOU get to pay for our experiments... More
