Republican lawmakers unveiled legislation on Tuesday to end a program offering loan support for clean energy companies, keeping alive the issue of a massive loan to solar panel maker Solyndra, which subsequently filed for bankruptcy.

Well, Well we could use far less of those. Ha, Ha, two blow out in the Gulf Of Mexico has turned it into a republican cesspool for our nation. Remember the Valdez ! Alaska after 3 decades has not returned to its pristine and abundant fishing. Imagine the cost of lost the Republican Cesspool is going to run us into for the next 5 decades! Now they want us to provide them with a pipe from Canada to Texas to make more of this toxic wasting energy material. LOL even after this recent pipe blow out that is flooding fields and streams and rivers with its poisons. Cost! I could go on and on with the oily black coaly radioactive toxic producing energy plants that the republicans keep shoving down our throats. But I won’t. Now let us look at all the pollution that Green energies has provided for us?? Anyone, anyone, a spittle here or there, anyone? Rest of the world is not wasting their time on the Green. They are driving away from our regressive republican energy policies. Example of many. U.S. invested $5 Billion on Green energy solutions. China invested $50 Billion.. LOL Regressive party here is now wasting our taxpayers monies by proposing useless bills that go nowhere and are toxic to all future generations. LOL since they have been drinking the TEA these past 2 years not 1 JOBS BILL in the House, that is not tied to grannies purse strings. Some people on this thread have a very short memory. Probably a symptom of their oily black coaly radioactive toxic infecting pollution. Just a small reminder TOP TEN oily Co. paid NO Taxes and received $Millions in tax returns. Then Demand $ Billions in Welfare [subsides].
Are we to continue to digest their toxic vomit or shall we walk away from their desires. Observe what they have put up for presidential material? MITT the Flip Flop Clown with his 14% tax bracket and his monies outsourced to foreign soils. Does not know where or how it is managed! LOL this is presidential material for our Nation? You have to be daffy. Yet once again with regressive party first diluting education and poisoning our lakes and oceans, with NO JOBS agendas you may yet want to vote for them again so that they can finally complete their goal of the past 4 decades and bankrupt this nation with a couple of more wars and a depression for the icing on their regressive poisonous cake.

Bernard, when was the last time you were in Valdez, AK? I spent fouryears from 2001-2005 going in and out of Valdez. It is as pristine today as it was in 1988. Once in a while oil globules will wash up on shore but that happens in California where they have a natural seep three miles offshore. Is there still oil there yes, but the surrounding waters and beaches are all recovering or are reovered. Liberal tree hugger scientists said in 1989 that Naked Island woudl be a barren wasteland for 50 years yet as you sail past Naked Island you can't see the island for all the trees, you can't kyak out to the island for fear of bear attack and when you fish for salmon off the island, you get strikes within seconds. Did the oil spill hurt some species? yeah it did, and that is unfortunate and Exxon has stalled for far to long to pay for these lost species, but for the most part, Valdez, AK has returned to it's pristine condition. Hopefully the Valdez Fisheries Association will come up with a solution to the wale problem that is also hindering the herring population, and hopefully the sea lions will affect a comeback, but to say that Valdez has not recovered is wrong.

Tell us how a President spends any money without first Congress approving the expenditures.

When was the last expenditure Congress Approved by legislation at Obama's or Democrats request......

I'm asking this question assuming you know how the United States Government functions and how money is drawn from the Treasury for spending.

I can't remember an Expenditure being approved since Scott Brown was sat in the Senate, just before the 51 Senate Filibusters.

Am I wrong, and if that's the case the mounting debt are a result of the continued Bush Tax Cuts and not Obama Spending.

That is how those of us who know how Government and Congress works in America understands how the debt is increasing, how do you see the driver of the debt?

You can buy Ethanol anywhere. Bush was right. Nothing came of the billions spent on Obama's green companies, nothing. The man failed in everything he tried to do. Now he thinks we will reelect him. Huh uh.

Romney extends lead among Independents to 14 percent

Posted by Dan Spencer (Diary)
Tuesday, July 10th at 11:00AM EDT

In the new ABC News/Washington Post poll, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney extends his lead among Independents to 14 points, 53-39 percent. Two months ago, a POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground poll found Romney had a ten-point lead among the critical Independent voters.

The mainstream media is touting the poll as showing the race is “dead even”— a 47-47 percent Obama-Romney contest among registered voters. Yet the new poll contains many more warning signs for the Obamacrats.
Obama’s overall job rating is 47-49 percent, approve-disapprove (the same as in May). But his approvals are majority negative on:
1. The Economy, 44-54 percent;
2. Health Care, 41-52 percent (a numerical low in approval, with no bump from last month’s Supreme Court ruling); and
3. Immigration, 38-52 percent (also bumpless despite Obama’s halting enforcement against certain illegal aliens, who arrived as minors) via executive fiat.
Sixty-three percent say the country’s headed in the wrong direction.
This is hard to dispute in light of the very disappointing May and June unemployment reports and the 41 straight months of unemployment above 8 percent during the Obama presidency.

Obama’s biggest shortfall is on the deficit where he trails Romney by 25-70 percent. It’s not hard to see why. As of July 6, 2012, the national debt was $15,879,528,608,975.11 ($15.9 trillion). It was $10,626,877,048,913.08 ($10.6 trillion) when Obama became president. That’s a $5.3 trillion, or 50 percent, increase in less than four years. On July 3, 2008, Presidential candidate Obama said that adding $4 trillion in debt was “irresponsible” and “unpatriotic.” President-elect Obama warned us when he predicted “trillion-dollar deficits for years to come.” And President Obama promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his term not once but at least five times.

The new poll also offers additional evidence that Obama’s continuing and misleading attacks against Romney’s private sector experience at Bain Capital has not hurt Romney. The poll found an even split on whether his Bain Capital background is a major reason to support or oppose him (23-24 percent), with 50 percent saying it makes no difference.

And all these favorable findings for Romney come from another poll skewed toward Democrat results. The new poll used a sample of 33 percent Democrats, 24 percent Republicans and 36 percent Independents. As we have mentioned before, based upon exit polling, the 2008 electorate was 39 percent Democrat, 32 percent Republican, and 29 percent Independent. In 2010, it was 35 percent Democrat, 35 percent Republican, and 29 percent Independent. This makes liberal claims that Obama is tied with Romney unbelievable an more wishful thinking as in Wisconsin.

Listen you Evil, Stupid, Ignorant Democrat-why do think it is alright to spend taxpayers money on projects that are failing, bailing them out, and they still went under. Maybe you don't care at all, cause you live off the Government Welfare, but for the rest of us that work our butts off, we do.
