Domestic issue! President Obama needs to be asked about investment in domestic corporations that have failed. Primarily "green" projects! Solyndra failed, now A123 has failed as well. A123 makes the batteries for electric cars. So few cars have been built and sold, that this company failed to thrive. Both of these companies wasted taxpayer money to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. Certainly, not wise investments, nor job incubators. Give private industry the tools to expand and add jobs, it is not a government responsibility. Lastly, remove the strict environmental restrictions so that growth can occur.

Nope. Not by what happened tonight when Mitt lost to The President.

When you say they 'failed' you may be using the wrong context. Sure, Solyndra failed as an American enterprise, but it was a significant success for those investors who provided campaign funds to the president. Anyone who examined the viability of Solyndra knew that they could not make a profit selling green energy products because their manufacturing costs were significantly higher than the competition.
