What's A123 you might ask? Its a "green energy" company that builds electric car batteries for cars that don't exist. The Obama administration gave them--errr "invested"-- $280 million taxpayer dollars.

The company filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy today.

Another name in the long list of failed green energy jobs.

How people can seriously want 4 more years of this nonsense baffles me.... Young folks weren't around but those of us who lived through the 70's can tell you how Jimmy Carter wasted tons of money on "green energy" as well...

What the blip sort of follow up does this guy have when he spends money? I've cringed at the people that say he's just a community organizer. Now I agree with them.
