Contrary to the claims of some of my critics and some of the editorial pages, I am an ardent believer in the free market. –THAT’S WHY I TOOK OVER THE AUTO INDUSTRY, BANKS AND OF COURSE BAILOUTS AND THE ENERGY SECTOR
Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it’s only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential. THAT’S WHY I PUSH CAPITALISM AND YOU CAN DO IT SPIRIT AND YOU CAN DO IT YOURSELF!
Here at this site, Solyndra expects to make enough solar panels each year to generate 500 megawatts of electricity. And over the lifetime of this expanded facility, that could be like replacing as many as eight coal-fired power plants. SO WHAT IT WAS ONLY 500 MILLION GIVE OR A FEW MILLION HERE OR THERE

I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage. But when you start playing around with constitutions, just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person, it just seems to me that’s not what America’s about.
