Well so much for Obama’s Green Jobs canard.

You know the one, it’s where bazillions of dollars will be spent to make America “ecco-friendly,” produce enough energy to power not only the good ole US of A but every known planet in the universe and create more jobs than has ever been produced in the history of mankind.

At least that’s the bullshit Obama spews out on a regular basis.

Obama also cites the country of Spain as a model to follow.

NEWSFLASH courtesy the Spanish newspaper La Gaceta

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.

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.”

What no jobs, and electricity prices have sky rocketed?

Who’d a thunk it!

The internal report of the Spanish administration admits that the price of electricity has gone up, as well as the debt, due to the extra costs of solar and wind energy. Even the government numbers indicate that each green job created costs more than 2.2 traditional jobs, as was shown in the report of the Juan de Mariana Institute. Besides that, the official document is almost a copy point by point of the one that led to Calzada being denounced [lit. “vetoed”] by the Spanish Embassy in an act in the U.S. Congress.

The presentation recognizes explicitly that “the increase of the electric bill is principally due to the cost of renewable energies.” In fact, the increase in the extra costs of this industry explains more than 120% of the variation in the bill and has prevented the reduction in the costs of conventional electricity production to be reflected on the bills of the citizens.

What you mean Obama lied?

Well yeah, so what else is new!

Remind me again who it was that said, “under my plan electricity prices will necessarily sky-rocket.”

If you don’t know it was Obama.
