More Solyndras Than Just Solyndra

You know, at this point I’m surprised that Sharyl Attkisson of CBS news is still able to be found. It’ll be interesting to see whether or not the eventual GOP nominee can hang this corrupt “energy program” around Obama’s neck during the general election. I can’t really add much more to what’s in the video.

CBS News counted 12 clean energy companies that are having trouble after collectively being approved for more than $6.5 billion in federal assistance. Five have filed for bankruptcy: The junk bond-rated Beacon, Evergreen Solar, SpectraWatt, AES’ subsidiary Eastern Energy and Solyndra.

According to CBS News, Beacon Power, a “green energy storage company,” recieved $43 million from the government. Standard and Poor’s had given the project a rating of “CCC-plus.”

    This is the scandal that Republicans should be screaming about.  they intentionally did not vette these companies, loaned the money for political reasons, and are now trying to spin it as a success story. 

    • What the hell is “vette?”  They didn’t Corvette these companies?

        “vet”  – Sorry if I made you angry.

    But according to Stephen green jobs are one of Obama’s strong suits.  Just look at the greatest recovery thread.

      How can an empty suit have a strong suit?

    Instapundit just linked to another great video about Solyndra.  It’s worth remembering that the Administration knew Solyndra was about to go under, yet pleaded on behalf of company execs for another round of funding so the company could stay in operation past the 2010 elections.  Politics, not concern for worker’s well-being or the fiscal health of the company, is what guided the Obama Administration’s decisions about Solyndra.   I suspect the same is true for most of these other companies as well.  And they want to complain about Bain Capital?

    C’mon Ackwired Pull!! A breech birth from Obama’s ass would do you good!!

  • And since I’m in the mood, get that damned apostrophe out of the post’s title!  You don’t pluralize a proper name with an apostrophe!

    • Thank you.  My inner Grammar Nazi has been satiated.

      For now…

      Dun dun dun!

    How many times have dems promised to reduce the deficit by fighting “waste and corruption”?

    Where’s Sheriff Joe?

    Barry got about $800B in “stimulus” not counting the hundreds of bilions he get to spend without even a budget passed by Congress.

    When do we ‘get it’ that most of the Sixteen And-Soon-To-Be-Thirty Trillion Dollar feral-gummint debt has been systematically looted by the world’s largest-ever money-laundering operation. The one owned and operated and controlled these past eighty-odd years by the vast RICO-racketeering organized criminal enterprises that prefer we refer to them by their street name: the “Democratic” potty. And it by its street name: the United States Government. 

    As an indicator, only, of the immense scale of the systemic use of the machinery of the feral gummint to enrichen “Democrats” and their cohorts, cronies, “contractors” and “suppliers,” foreign and domestic, the entire Iraq War, start to finish, cost less than the Chicago Gangster “government” of the coke-headed marijuana-mumbling mobbed-up Mussolini-modeled modified-Marxist mother’s milquetoast: Bursq Hussayn bin Bursq Hussayn bin Hussayn Oogooboogoo Ubambi has stolen in three short years. 

    And they’re not done yet. Not by a long shot!
