Another Obozo "green" project. Call it Solyndra Redux.

follow the money...now follow it back.

With the approval of the Obama administration, an electric car company that received a $529 million federal government loan guarantee is assembling its first line of cars in Finland, saying it could not find a facility in the United States capable of doing the work.

Vice President Joseph Biden heralded the Energy Department's $529 million loan to the start-up electric car company called Fisker as a bright new path to thousands of American manufacturing jobs. But two years after the loan was announced, the job of assembling the flashy electric Fisker Karma sports car has been outsourced to Finland.

"There was no contract manufacturer in the U.S. that could actually produce our vehicle," the car company's founder and namesake told ABC News. "They don't exist here."

Henrik Fisker said the U.S. money so far has been spent on engineering and design work that stayed in the U.S., not on the 500 manufacturing jobs that went to a rural Finnish firm, Valmet Automotive.

"We're not in the business of failing; we're in the business of winning. So we make the right decision for the business," Fisker said. "That's why we went to Finland."

This is the car that Ashton Kutcher (Waldon)drives in 2 1/2 men. Both a bust!

Speaking of 2&1/2 Men...as the Kutcher-version of the show makes its nose dive (or face-plant) in the ratings...wouldn't it be an ironic laugh if Chuck Lorre had to rewrite the final script to make this season all just a dream (like they did on Dallas or the final Newhart show)?

The final shot opens on Sheen waking up in bed, in a Vegas hotel suite, with a hooker on either side of him, stacks of blue chips on the nightstand. Sheen says "girls, I just had the weirdest dream..." Sheen glances over to the nightstand, eyes the chips, eyes the girls, looks at the camera and says "damn, I love WINNING!"
