Tesla Motors (TSLA +0.1%) doesn't show any ill effect of getting mentioned in a negative light at the final debate between President Obama and Governor Romney. The automaker took in $465M in interest-bearing loans from DOE in 2009 under a program originally created by the Bush administration, but the candidates differ dramatically on the involvement of the government with a private company such as Tesla. The big picture: A maturing Tesla is likely could be unaffected by the election if its business model is truly viable. (debate transcript)

  • Tesla - NEW and FRESH in every sense of those words - current buyers will share with prospective buyers, who will in turn become new buyers who will share with prospective and so on and so on -

  • Romniesha is pissed. Because when he was active with Bain Cap., Tesla would have been his "pot of gold". He would go in load it with debt, stuffed his pocket and walked away. Who is this guy? As stupid as 'W' was, he recognize that this technology is the future. Like any new techology, there will be bumps in road. But in the end this is our future, along with "solar energy". America has 2 problems to overcome to survive the future.
    1 Ourselves and the anti-education, anti-science gop lobby
    2. The coming China industrial tsunami.

    "The community members were occupying the plant’s lobby in protest of Bain’s decision to outsource 170 American jobs from its profitable Sensata plant in Freeport to China."
