Spanish “Green Jobs Program”, Obama’s model for U.S., a complete bust

Again – I have stopped believing that these guys are just stupid and am becoming convinced that they are determined to bring our country to ruin in order to impose a new order. I mean, they can’t be this clueless, right?

Spain admits failure of green jobs program.

As predicted was inevitable, today the Spanish newspaper La Gaceta runs with a full-page article fessing up to the truth about Spain’s “green jobs” boondoggle, which happens to be the one naively cited by President Obama no less than eight times as his model for the United States. It is now out there as a bust, a costly disaster that has come undone in Spain to the point that even the Socialists admit it, with the media now in full pursuit.

Breaking the Spanish government’s admission here at Pajamas Mediaprobably didn’t hurt their interest in finally reporting on the leaked admission. Obama’s obvious hope of rushing into place his “fundamental transformation” of America into something more like Europe’s social democracies — where even the most basic freedoms have been moved from individuals and families to the state — before the house of cards collapsed has suffered what we can only hope proves to be its fatal blow. At least on this front.

La Gaceta boldly exposes the failure of the Spanish renewable policy and how Obama has been following it. The headline screams: “Spain admits that the green economy as sold to Obama is a disaster.”

    Relax, Chris. Most liberals are not evil; they are merely ignorant of basic economics. As are most political policy makers. Remember LBJ’s guns and butter? Nixon’s wage and price controls? Gerald Ford’s Whip Inflation Now? Carter’s idiotic Fed led by non-entity G. William Miller? I could go on, but you know the basics. The bailouts and other recent economic stupidities are merely the latest of a long line of poor economic policy decisions. And the underlying strength of the free market, which is still very largely what our economy is, has always led to greater prosperity in the long run. To be sure, we are going through a rough patch, but it can be corrected. And it will start with a Republican House refusing to fund ObamaCare in 2013.

    • hey, Inagua – long time no hear from – glad you’re back! And thanks for talking me down from the ledge – you’re quite right to remind me of the past morons but it just starts gnawing at my brain like a crazed rat: they can’t be this stupid, it must be deliberate. But, thanks to your reminder I can step back, take a deep breath and acknowledge that indeed, they are that stupid. They probably love the Dali Lama, too.

    Chris,

    I am always here. I came for Walter Noel, but stayed for the rest. I check in many times a day. You write beautifully. Your wit, verve, and moral clarity are very refreshing. I rarely post because I don’t have that much to say. BTW, I recommend you take a look at Jennifer Rubin’s stuff on Commentary’s Contentions blog if you do not read her already. I also enjoy Jane Hamsher of Firedoglake. A hopeless Leftie, but very well informed, clear thinking, and a superb wordsmith.
