Pres. Obama calls for an energy fund that would spend $2B over 10 years to focus on research on green fuel sources for vehicles. The research would focus on a range of technologies and non-oil fuels such as biofuels and natural gas, and would be funded mostly from royalties the government gets from offshore drilling.

    If the fund were open to the public with Obama the fund manager making all investment decisions, would you invest in it?

    How about we just take $2 Billion from the loans that are being handed out to politically connected folks to produce overpriced solar and wind energy and use it for research instead!!!


    But no, I'm sure this is just MORE SPENDING!!! Lets buy a few more votes and reward a few more friends.
