    I heard it! And he was almost responsible for my death as I choked on a piece of pizza. I think I should lay attempted murder charges.

    Sadly, like me, you live in a state where your presidential vote is basically irrelevant due to the electoral system. Well, not sadly, I love my state, but I greatly dislike the electoral college.

    Too bad you're in California, where I don't think there's much question who is going to win the Presidential vote. Be grateful you're not in a swing state where every ad these days is for one side or the other!

    And I told my wife that Romney lumping Tesla with Solyndra is the last straw for us (not that there was much question anyway) for this election. And we're in a swing state. And we both vote!

    Romney did lump them all together, but I heard him say, "You gotta take your losers with your winners" or something to that effect.

    So maybe he's neutral to positive on Tesla. But he definitely seems to think that renewables (wind and solar) don't help with energy independence.



    Edit to add: I misheard him. Romney derided the entire bunch saying the President only picks losers.

    Here's another quote" "Sometimes the devil you know, is better than the devil you don't know"

    chew on that for a while, we know President Obama supports green energy initiatives & technolgies, Romney would likely try to end it as fast as possible.
    Their never would have been a Tesla loan under a Romney administration, yes I know it was started during the Bush administration, well, Mr Romney is no George Bush

    He said Obama is just good at picking losers after that, to be fair.

    Thanks for clearing that up. I didn't completely catch what he was getting at.

    He does not like green energy.
