Americans for Prosperity Putting $6.1 Million on Ad to Attack Green Jobs
Americans for Prosperity Putting $6.1 Million on Ad to Attack Green Jobs
April 30, 2012 By Stephen Lacey

After pouring more than $8.4 million into bogus energy attack ads since November, the oil industry front group Americans For Prosperity announced yet another major ad buy of $6.1 million in eight states.

The latest ad is based on a set of mistruths about green jobs that have been widely debunked.

In the ad, AFP explains that “billions of taxpayer dollars spent on green energy went to jobs in foreign countries,” and uses four examples that supposedly prove that Obama’s clean energy stimulus created foreign jobs instead of domestic ones.

<..> This latest ad brings the total amount spent by pro-fossil fuel groups to more than $24 million in just the first few months of 2012, based on a ThinkProgress analysis.

$24m to lie their asses off. Pretty good article to debunk the ad.

Well if Obama were to have put a US only clause on the money, then they would have screamed "free market". I would have put screamed "socialist", but they did that anyway. It does get to the point where one might consider being what they're already calling you since it'll save the country.
