    I think I've heard every spin imaginable until the teleprompter comes up with the next one.  Will the blame game ever cease?

    Solyndra was G W Bush's fault. Chenny &  the Koch Bros. engineered their demise. Obie just didn't know how bad it was when he took office. Bush lied, Solyndra died. :-)

    Thanks Gusser, great laugh.  Is there a point when Obama & co. will be responsible for anything, or will it always be George Bush's fault?

    Oh Solyndra very much belongs to this administration. If it was not cooked up by Obama, it was one of his clan. Solyndra executives had heavy access directly to Obama prior to receiving the loan guarantees.  The executives were in the Oval Office no less than four times prior to receiving the loans.  You don't get into the Oval Office that frequently unless someone wants you there.  This green energy thing is nothing more than a taxpayer money laundering operation designed to fill Obama's election coffers. It also fills executive pockets and the taxpayers are left holding the bag. Some of them praise Obama for his courage in stubbornly pursuing the green energy even when common sense tells you that it does not yet have the impact or the market appeal to sustain success.  WB

    Facts are Facts...Solyndra was the first company to receive a loan guarantee from the Department of Energy as part of the 2009 stimulus package.  The "loan" guarantee was for $535 million.aei.org-Obama paid a visit to Solyndra on a trip to California in May 2010. "It is here that companies like Solyndra are leading the way toward a brighter, more prosperous future," he said. Hailing the green jobs loan guarantee program, he went on, "We can see the positive impacts right here at Solyndra."  DO YOU REMEMBER WAAAAYYY BACK IN January 2009-the OMB team found Solyndra's application insufficient. So the OMB "remanded" the application back to DOE for further review and modification.  This was akin to sending it back down to the minor leagues for a quiet and painless death. in other words the Bush admin sent it to die. BUT NO the messiah and cheif obuma wanted to shove his pathetic untested "GREEN jobs BS down everyones throat so he took a LOSER  and placed his hands on it and raised it from the dead.. but like the reanimated undead zombie corpse crawling up from the grave, Solyndra was reborn by the vodoo preist barrack and his minions.     so as bush left office he left the failed company corpse for dead... but Obama THe real ONE TO BLAME AGain, was taking credit for it when it looked like it was doing well Obarry made a speach saying what a success it was for his admin. BUT THEN suddenly it was "a bipartisan effort when it failed. what a freakin shell game by the carnival barker-n-cheif
