From the time the trillion dollar “stimulus” scam was just a gleam in Obama’s teleprompter, Spain has been cited as an example of where the Democrats wanted to lead the US when it came to the “jobs of the future,” which of course are the so-called “green jobs.”

So how’s that wonderful “green economy” working out for Spain?

MADRID (AFP) – Spain announced Friday its jobless rate surged to a 13-year record above 20 percent at the end of 2010, the highest level in the industrialized world, as the economy struggled for air.

The “Spain model” means 2.2 jobs lost for each “green job” created. I’m not a math whiz, but to this serf in flyover country, that adds up to disaster.

Here’s the Spanish newspaper La Gaceta. The headline reads: “Spain admits that the green economy as sold to Obama is a disaster”

null

That was from March of last year — and yet the Dems continue to steamroll toward bankrupting America just to line the pockets of unions under the guise of creating phantom “green jobs” to save the world from the mythical global warming.

I’ve noticed though that since people are catching on to the “green jobs” sham, Team Obama has started putting different lipstick on the same pig by switching to the term “renewable energy economy.”

It’s been said a thousand times but deserves to be repeated — there are two options: Obama & Company are either incredibly stupid, or they’re trashing the place like The Who in a hotel room circa 1975 deliberately and for a particular reason. And since the media is constantly reminding us how smart Obama is, we’re forced to assume the latter.

    Please correct me if I`m wrong, but isn`t Spain a part of the Europe that we are supposed to give credit for being the world`s leaders in socio-economics – instead of the evil US ? And after more than 20 years of this "green economy", Spain is STILL having to subsidize those"green jobs" !

    So now "green jobs" is OUT – and "renewable energy economy" is IN ! As I said yesterday, when it`s still "BS-in-a-can", changing the label doesn`t "change" anything……..and nobody is buying it !

    The correction is … " and nobody is buying it !" should read "and nobody, except the gullible communist promoting zombies like Nick, is buying it !"

    Mao’s plan for green jobs:

    “Everyone just relax, take your ease and the government will take care of your needs, let the jungle go back to what it was a millennium ago. I’ll be on vacation.”

    Then in his time, for the green jobs economy, he’ll walk out on the front porch of the White House and yell: “OK, everybody, start pulling weeds! I’ll be on vacation.”

    Sounds to me like the work of a "Drive-By Vacationer-in-Chief" ! He drives by, throws out another stupid edict, unaccountable, unapologetic (to us at least), passing blame, spends another ship-load of money and then heads off on yet another un-earned, un-deserved vacation !

    Why don`t I feel like a well-cared-for child !

    If you’ve ever had a garage sale you know glee of people buying your junk.

    If you’ve ever bought at a garage sale you know the glee of thinking you’ve gotten over on someone.

    How dumb does he look to the world now? Right up there on a level with Gore. And one doesn’t have to step into another culture to see it, it’s very apparent in this one.

    Keep this guy out of Spain’s and Europe’s garage.

    No wonder European leaders love him… it's like the political/economic version of "if you want to look thin, hang out with fat people."

    At least The Who probably paid for their damage.Taxpayers will be paying bills for the damage by Bush,Obama and Congress for a long time…to the Hu,of course.

    Wow this is interesting! I am sure this will surely help the common people to find a job for their living. Now unemployment problem is severe in Spain. This movement will aid to reduce this crisis to a certain extend!
