So what if he’s blowing billions of our tax dollars on failed green energy scams?
How dare you question him!
Obama strongly defended his plans to make America a leader in new energy sources like biofuels, and wind power and solar power, and rebuked Republicans for opposing his plans to cut subsidies to profit cranking oil producers.
“If some of these folks were around when Columbus set sail … they would not have believed that the world was round,” he said, at a Community College in the Maryland suburbs outside Washington DC.
“They probably would have agreed with one of the pioneers of the radio who said, “Television won’t last. It’s a flash in the pan,” he said.
“One of Henry Ford’s advisors was quoted saying, “The horse is here to stay but the automobile is only — a fad.”
“There have always been folks who are the naysayers and don’t believe in the future and don’t believe in trying to do things differently.”

What a dope. All you can do it point and laugh.
