Romney by a mile ... Current president has absolutely no practical experience in anything other than being a politician. Romney is a business guy and will help turn this country around

Look at how many executive orders Obama has issues ... Over 900 ... It's absolutely scary what he has done on is personal agenda of social reform ... Read that as redistribution

Romney wasted too much time greeting the people asking questions, telling them that they asked a good question and reiterating the freaking questions!

I heard better debates in high school classes and I wasn't involved in the debate team.

I'll probably lose my job if Romney gets elected, but I don't even care at this point.

Some companies I deal (dealt) with at this point:
Solyndra - $733M
Fisker - $60M
Tesla - $17M
Abound Solar - $400M
Beacon Power - $43M
Tonopah Solar - $737M

That's just the tip of the iceberg...

But it was a Michigan Republican who was requesting that money for A123.

I know, we want to blame the current leaders for our problems, but lets be honest folks, most of it goes way beyond the current leadership. Getting off topic, people want to blame Obama for the Libya terror attack, but if you look at history, there's been trouble in the Middle East since the late 40's and the formation of Israel and the 50's and 60's with the Palestinians. There were multiple attacks and even the kidnapping of a high-level CIA station chief during Reagan's watch There were multiple attacks during Clinton's presidency, Bush's, and Bush Jr. Doesn't mean it was their fault, just means that we were working with incomplete intel.

Likewise with the bankruptcy of alternative technologies. Solyndra's failure was due to being unable to compete with low-cost Chinese imports, despite their product being more efficient. Granted, cutting edge tech does take a while to become cost-efficient, but if you're fighting an up-hill battle...

A123 focused on batteries for the auto industry, specifically electric cars. Unfortunately, as long electric cars are the 'red-headed stepchild' of automobiles, the support for alt. technology will never be there. When the fit hits the shan and the price of oil goes through the roof, watch how fast money gets injected in to technologies like batteries, solar, wind and other renewable sources.

The other day I was driving down the road behind a Jeep Liberty. Just above the "Liberty" on the back of the Jeep was an "Obama 2012" sticker...it was such a horrible contradiction that I smashed into the back of the jeep and shoved it off the road. Too bad, it was a pretty cool Jeep.

LOL - you know how many times that exact thought has crossed my mind? My truck would start to look pretty bashed up because those stupid stickers are all over the place around here. I am fairly sure if you buy a Subaru or Prius the car comes with the sticker. Makes my stomach churn living in such a blue state. Heck - this stupid state would elect Mickey Mouse if he had a D next to his name.
