So it isn’t true that Spain’s green economy — Obama’s serially cited model, until the catastrophe was exposed — was nothing more than a bailout for investors in uneconomic investments whose good money was, admittedly, incented by the state into chasing uneconomic investments with the promise of massive guaranteed returns (at the ratepayer’s, and futures taxpayers’, expense, as I detail in Power Grab).
Now it turns out that Spain’s scramble away from its “green jobs” debacle has, under lobbying pressure from the Frankenstein interests that this scheme creates, morphed into another bank bailout to avert collapse from overinvestment in a state-sponsored bubble.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
