The most embarrassing bet I’ve made It’s a big egg old I’ve laid
I just screwed the pooch with Solyndra. To me it’s just a game, to shuck and jive away, the blame.
A half billion bucks are gone, that doesn’t seem so wrong, I print cash all day long
Say it’s lost our economy’s caving while at work you still are slaving
Say it’s waste and we’ll deny our betraying your trust and the taxes you’re paying

Making fun of the incumbent administration is easy. It’s populated by clowns and comedians. The economy is a “dramedy” (part drama, part comedy). The punch lines are delivered by seasoned performers experienced in hitting their off-center mark with practiced timing and skill.
This circus’ hallmark is when the lights dim and the curtains rise you can be assured the Producers will ask for a surcharge to supplement the original ticket price. It’s like the original fee was for admission, the supplement is to buy a seat. Don’t ask; you can’t afford the popcorn.
Obama and his band of Merry Nitwits and Misfits have pushed the “Green Jobs/Energy” thing to its limit. First we had Van Jones, Communist Sympathizer, 9/11 Truther and Lie Synthesizer hired by Obama to promote the Green Energy policy bone Obama just won’t stop gnawing at.
Obama just wants all of his toys NOW or he’s going to pout until his facial muscles snap his jaw if he doesn’t get his way. Patience isn’t his strong-suit; although I guess trying to appear all historical and such is hard when you only have four years to get done what takes most presidents two terms to accomplish. So in respect to screwing up the country he’s highly progressive and accomplished because things haven’t been this bad in a long, long time.
Obama has continually pushed this green energy thing to the point of disbelief. Einstein said insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Obama thinks it’s strength of character and determination to get the job done. To this we would say: “Barry, put your colors down and listen. Just because you call it art doesn’t mean spray painting all aspects of industry green will make it energy efficient overnight. Now go play with something else. You don’t have that much time left to get something, anything done right.”
Obama said he believes America needs to place bets on the most energy efficient industries and supplement their efforts. “If you look at the overall portfolio of loan guarantees that have been provided, overall it’s doing well,” Obama said. “What we always understood is that not every single business is going to succeed in clean energy. But if we want to compete with China which is pouring hundreds of billions of dollars into this space, if we want to compete with other countries that are heavily subsidizing the industries of the future, we have to make sure that our guys here in the United states of America at least have a shot. Now there are going to be some failures and Solyndra is an example.” (ABC/Yahoo News/CNET [Martin LaMonica 10-3-2011])
Has anybody explained to this hyper-educated, community organizer that this ain’t China? Like this is still America? Like as in Communist dictatorship and economic foundation versus Democratic-Republic Capitalist society? Hello?
Economics, as has been observed on numerous occasions is an arcane and subjectively interpreted set of theories. It isn’t a science. The combinations of actions brought into play on a regular basis are so individually affective they almost guarantee no two solutions will be equally realized. Nothing ever goes the same way twice because nothing ever appears to be the same.
But Obama can’t get this message. He’s tried so hard to get at least ONE plank in his presidential campaign platform to work. But all his planks seem termite ridden. Still, he’ll wager our tax money to get the job done. Unfortunately we never said he could wager our money.
He just took it upon himself to do it.
Thanks for listening.
