Well well well, Obummer is batting a 1000 and yet the people still love him. How many of these green energy companies have to fail before we pull the plug from this pres? He is notorious for failed business'. This should tell the people something, if they only had a brain. If you fail in business, how the hell do you think you can succeed in running a country!
While that’s true, it’s also worth pointing out that some of the biggest cheerleaders of the EnerDel plant in Indiana were also Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN) and Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, both of which whom were captured on video visiting the plant and saying nice things about it.
Daniels toured and spoke at the plant on multiple occasions, including in July of 2011, when EnerDel signed an agreement with a Chinese company Wanxiang (Wang Chung), which an EnerDel executive said was due to Daniels’ influence.
“No single individual has been more important to us than Governor Mitch Daniels, our advocate-in-chief in Washington and on missions abroad,” the executive said, introducing Daniels.
“Indiana is committed to maintaining a climate where innovative businesses like Ener1 can succeed,” Governor Daniels said in his prepared remaks. “We’re very proud to have played a role in bringing these two companies together and look forward to their shared success as they develop the next phase of the electric car industry. Today’s announcement is an example of one of many fruitful partnerships between Indiana and China and shows that the Hoosier economy has a global reach.”
There’s an additional layer of irony in that Daniels delivered the Republican response to the State of the Union on Tuesday attacking the President’s economic policies, when he himself was a big backer of at least one of those in his state.
Lugar, too, was introduced on his visit to the EnerDel plant on February, 9, 2008 as a “visionary and strong proponent of alternative energy sources and reducing U.S. dependency on foreign oil.”
As Lugar himself put it in his speech: “I’ve gone through all of this rhetoric just to underline the risk-taking that is involved in this company, that is well known to you, and you need to know that people appreciate that, and I’ve one of them…You’re producing for a market that should be there, should be there promptly, if we’re to save the world, but isn’t there…”
Lugar attacked the President following State of the Union for “fail[ing] to focus on creating private sector jobs and improving the economy,” when just two years earlier he was applauding the Department of Energy for awarding EnerDel grant money.
And that's what happens when you read biased BS stories like The Blaze.... you don't get the full story.
