    No he does not. He wants to drill on federal land to create jobs. He wants to become energy independent, but do it by mining our own backyard (including Alaska). Like it or not, when gas prices drop, it's bad for Tesla imo.

    Yeah, couldn't believe he lumped Tesla in with Solyndra. He definitely has no use for clean energy and is in bed with big oil and coal. Boooo!!!!!

    I am concerned, Romney came off very well, even though I disagree with his core positions. I think this debate is really going to help him and hurt Obama.

    It's impossible to drill enough here in the US to become energy independent since oil is an international market. If you nationalized all the oil fields, kept all the oil and refined it here maybe but that will never happen and we shouldn't do it anyway. That would be a short term solution anyway.

    Don't you worry, all of us blue states will take care of that problem we could use the help of a few pink states too.

    Exactly we should keep our oil. And then when everyone else starts to run out we can still make plastics!

    Note to Romney: Tesla is not Solyndra - GigaOm - Cleantech News and Analysis

    Romney lumped Tesla in with Solyndra, Fisker Automotive and Ener1 as examples of misplaced spending. It’s true that Solyndra and Ener1 went bankrupt, and Fisker Automotive has clearly been struggling. But Tesla in general has been a success story of the stimulus package, and is producing a widely praised electric car in Fremont, Calif, at the rate of 100 vehicles a week (for the last week of September).

    I like pizza but I think we should all switch to tacos next debate.

    And here is my proof.
