From a reader:
If Warner could make millions in the cellphone biz w/o a govt.
program paid for by taxpayers, why can’t the new energy entrepreneurs
he’s touting do the same w/o some Obamacash taken from the rest of
us? Isn’t his very STORY a testament NOT to big-gov nannystatism but
to independent capitalism that is the root of Republican, not
Me: I wondered the same thing. Warner spoke well of how this country let him learn from his mistakes as an entrepreneur. That ain’t the Obama way on economics, now is it?
Update: I should have known: from a reader:
Your emailer is off on Warner. He did make his fortune through crony capitalism. Using his position as a Senate Aide to then broker cellular licenses isn’t exactly a shining example of entrepreneurship. And most likely, whoever makes the biggest mint in alt-energy will get there the same way.
