Romney just plugged Tesla!!!
Apparently it was a poor tax break Obama gave them?!?
Romney Called Tesla a loser
Heard that! Ass...
Yeah. Just getting ready to post that as well. Lumped in with Solyndra, Fisker and Ener1 as well. Tesla, really? Not cool. Guess their 3,000 jobs don't mean much.
Well, he would have just lost my vote... if I were American.
Never had mine. And I am American. And I vote.
It was mentioned comparing the Oil Industry $2.8 billion is subsidies, and Romney said "you just gave $90 billion" to these "Green Energy" companies, and they are all losers"
Well Mr Romney, what should we do STFU and continue paying our enemies for oil, or try to become more energy independent? I say if we don't try, we are doomed.
and not every green technology is a boondoggle, he really should have done his research on Tesla, as it is not in the same league as Solyndra.
Anyone who was considering voting for Romney on this forum, probably won't now. not that any of us where anyway
He was an a-hole when he was Governor of MA, and he still is.
Ugh, politics.... I saw this comment too. Just got my citizenship and I'll be voting so that's cool. Lol it's funny you guys updated.
I'm sure there are some here who will vote for him no matter what.
I heard it! And he was almost responsible for my death as I choked on a piece of pizza. I think I should lay attempted murder charges.
Sadly, like me, you live in a state where your presidential vote is basically irrelevant due to the electoral system. Well, not sadly, I love my state, but I greatly dislike the electoral college.
Too bad you're in California, where I don't think there's much question who is going to win the Presidential vote. Be grateful you're not in a swing state where every ad these days is for one side or the other!
And I told my wife that Romney lumping Tesla with Solyndra is the last straw for us (not that there was much question anyway) for this election. And we're in a swing state. And we both vote!
Romney did lump them all together, but I heard him say, "You gotta take your losers with your winners" or something to that effect.
So maybe he's neutral to positive on Tesla. But he definitely seems to think that renewables (wind and solar) don't help with energy independence.
Edit to add: I misheard him. Romney derided the entire bunch saying the President only picks losers.
I cheered anyway!
Here's another quote" "Sometimes the devil you know, is better than the devil you don't know"
chew on that for a while, we know President Obama supports green energy initiatives & technolgies, Romney would likely try to end it as fast as possible.
Their never would have been a Tesla loan under a Romney administration, yes I know it was started during the Bush administration, well, Mr Romney is no George Bush
He said Obama is just good at picking losers after that, to be fair.
At least Romney supports clean coal.
Thanks for clearing that up. I didn't completely catch what he was getting at.
He does not like green energy.
I too am eating pizza. I somehow didn't have any beer. And well it was/is tough going watching all of this.
