Question: Which of these two gentlemen look like they actually know how to run a solar manufacturing company?
Answer: Neither. It is a trick question. The man on the left is President Obama, who has no business experience of any kind and whose administration has the fewest number of cabinet secretaries with business experience in the history of the Country. The man on the right is Chris Gronet, the CEO of now bankrupt Solyndra, who was given half a billion dollars in taxpayer debt prior to a visit by VP Joseph R. Biden, Jr. and whose request for government money was originally turned down by the Bush Administration.
Experience does matter. If you’ve never created any jobs, it is hard to know how to focus like a laser on creating jobs, so you focus on what you know — over-regulate the economy until it shuts down like it has.
