    Success in the Obamanation’s reign means sitting on the couch, scratching your behind, and watching TV while waiting for your next government handout. And of course to get all this you probably first sneaked across the border.

    I’m not an accountant or anything,but didn’t it occur to anybody to audit the HELL out of Solyndra before sinking so much money into it?

    They did, at least during the Bush Administration, who decided to put funding on hold.

    Of course, under the Bush administration any oversight or enforcement efforts were eliminated because free enterprise could police itself. You know like Enron, Lehman Brothers, Bear-Stearns, BP Oil, etc.

    Plus BP happened under obama. Mainly because he pushed the oil rigs into deeper water where it was not as safe for them. Plus the other two where because of Henry Sisineros under Clinton. Forcing the banks to make loans that wouldn’t be repaid. Came to roost under Bush but was caused by clinton staff. I bet most liberals don’t even know that clinton had to give his HUD secratary a presidental pardon for crimes he comitted while in office.

    But yet your proud of obama and his fiscal cliff deal which included 400 million for Hollywood producers, 70 million for NASCAR, 40 million for people to try to turn algae into bio-fuel and 4 million to develop and electric motorcycle.

    155,000 new jobs, and unemployment down to 7.8%. Haters gotta hate.

    I know people outside of America have been hearing all about the fiscal cliff. Let me explain it. There was no fiscal cliff. Two years ago obama wanted to raise the debt ceiling, which is the limit America can legally be in debt. The Republicans agreed to allow him to do this in exchange for 100 billion in cuts in wasteful spending. obama was given two years to streamline departments and prepare for this, he didn’t. So when it came time for obama and the democrats to keep their word (which they never do) they started this panic about a fiscal cliff. The fiscal cliff was spending reductions that two years ago they said they could and would make. Plus this is all caused because obama is the only president in history to have never passed a budget. Before the liberals get on here and say that is because the Republicans blocked him that’s not true. obama’s first two years he had a majority in both houses and the Republicans could not have stopped him. He did submit a budget his third year but it was so bad that not even one democrat (his own party) supported it in Congress. The democrat senate leader refused to even bring it up for a vote. The only thing obama passed in his first two years was the largest tax increase in the history of the United States. Before the liberals again try to say not true, the only reason obamacare is legal is because the Supreme court ruled that it was not a health care plan but actually a tax and the government could legally raise taxes.

    Bush cut off funding to Solyndra.

    Enron happened under Clinton.

    If you think that those are good numbers 4 years into a “recovery” then you are easy to please. The Street was expecting 170,000 new jobs, and we need about 120,000 new jobs a month just to keep pace with everyone joining the workforce.

    The numbers are such because they changed the way they figure it. They removed the people who have given up and their unemployment has run out from the work force. If it was still figured the same way it was done under every president before obama the number would be 12%. Also unfortunantly most of those jobs were temp jobs for the holidays.

    I guess all those no-bid contracts to Halliburton on the credit card were Jr’s example of success.

    I’m dropping this strip from my queue. I don’t mind political satire, but he’s just mindlessly and obsessively repeating Faux News BS now. Yes, Solyndra went bankrupt, and it was because it couldn’t compete with solar panels from China that were heavily subsidized by their government and thus cost half as much at the consumer end. In other words, China beat the US through government funding.
    There’s also the fact that of all government investments made by the Obama administration in green energy, only about 2% have gone bust. Any vulture capitalist would be proud of an investment record that good, especially given the new nature of the technology.
