Not exactly what the Obama Administration wants to hear, I'm guessing::



According to the White House, there was nothing special about the money given to Solyndra. Sure, Solyndra VPs donated thousands to the Obama Presidential Campaign, but that was nothing. The President wasn't playing favorites, they say, and he didn't campaign specifically for Solyndra over other companies. However, according to a newly found press release on Solyndra's own website, that does not seem to be he case.

Solyndra logo Solyndra wrote a release when it received the massive loan in March of 2009. Solyndra CEO and Founder Chris Gronet thanked President Obama personally for the money, saying:

"The leadership and actions of President Barack Obama, Energy Secretary Steven Chu, and the U.S. Congress were instrumental in concluding this offer for a loan guarantee.”


So yeah, inside politics run amok. Sweetheart loans going to those who deserve it least. Whoda thunk it?

Nothing is going to come out of this.
The days of holding a president accountable died when the bush administration could commit treason by outing a cia operative and nothing came from it. Except Scooter going to jail and getting a presidential pardon.

Don't hold your breath folks.

It's different because of the hypocrisy involved. The Obama people have been spewing about republicans giving corporate handouts and complaining that they aren't paying their "fair share".

There is also the global warming scam angle to all this.

Not saying its not wrong, but its nothing new, and certainly not new to the white house.

You can give what ever reasons, but its all the same BS presidents have been doing for some time, friends of the POTUS get kick backs, sad but true.

Yes bush and Chaney give deals to private contractors who then turn around an rape and kill Iraq civilians and are immune from prosecution.

Yet this corruption on Obamas part is too far? really? I want obama out as much as the next guy but this is not so earth shattering or ground breaking as people are making it out to be.
