Looks like “hindsight is 20/20″ is the excuse the White House is going with over guaranteeing a loan of over half a billion in taxpayer funds. Don’t we all wish it were that easy?

Here’s Obama from yesterday:

And here’s Steven Chu from today:

It’s almost verbatim from the both of them: they had to invest big money into green energy because China is doing it and not every investment will pan out.

Yeah, that’s fine if you are using YOUR money, but it’s not YOUR money that you are pissing away! And to the tune of half a billion on one company!

If Obama and Chu were investment brokers, they’d likely be in jail or at least out of a job for wasting this kind of money. It’s outrageous! And what’s even more outrageous is that it has pay-for-play written all over it.

    This is exactly the attitude that infuriates me.

    Hey douchebags, it’s not YOUR freaking money!

      With every ounce of their sorry beings, they actually believe they have the right to our money and the right to squander it on what they think is right.
      Remember, we’re dealing with a dictator type mindset from these liberals.
      They know what’s best, and who doesn’t make a goof now and then?
      They would be flabergasted if they were ever actually held accountable. It doesn’t compute with the liberal mind.

        They would be real flabbergasted if it was their personal money that was being thrown around, wasted and used as vote bait.

    In the universe where justice lives, BO and all his cronies would be in prison, for life.
    But, in the current universe, these high paid, well dressed criminals get away with it.

    Yes it was almost verbatim and the sad part is their ideology is essentially the same too.

      That idiot Chu is the one who wants Americans to pay upwards of something like 15 dollars a gallon for gasoline, so the planet will be happy or some stupid theory these liberals come up with….never mind it would completley collapse the American economy and bring untold hardship to human beings….but, they don’t care about humans.

        Husein did say that he wanted energy prices to necessarily skyrocket.
        So Chu is just making his lord’s dreams come true

          Chu is another hard core Marxist/progressive. Elephants were too weak kneed to flush him out.

          A high school physics student who halfway paid attention in economics class would have known this green sheet stinks. Chu did too. It is not science, it is ideology to bankrupt the country and cement the Central State.

    Oh my !
    The BP stooge from Bezerkly agrees with the Soros stooge from HaHa-Ward
    Whodathunk ?
    BTW, when they say that they had to invest big money into green energy because China is doing it and not every investment will pan out,
    does it mean that there are plenty more solyndra type companies which the media are trying to hide from the public ?
    Or are the media covering the solyndra bribe-kickbacks scam so that they don’t have to cover Hussain+ Holder supplying guns to mexicans to kill American people ?

    Is it supposed to surprise anybody that the obamessiah only gives taxpayer $$$$$$$$ to those who have made campaign contributions in the past and are likely to again next election?

      I wonder how many Republican donors got Hussein’s ” stimulus “?
      How do I file a FOIA request to see the documents relating to Hussein doling out taxpayer money to Republican contributors ?

      • Anonymous

        I dare to say that searching for obamessiah doling out from his slush funds…errr…I mean stimulus to Republican contributors would be a waste of time, as I don’t expect to find any. And I pray that I’m wrong about this

        As tempting as that is, I think that seeing them voted out of office will be more rewarding. The MSM seemed to shrug off 2010 as “anger against incumbents”. They haven’t seen anything yet. I’m thinking about getting cable t.v. just to watch the lib talking head faces as election night 2012 progresses. It will be absolutely priceless.

        I can’t tell you how good it will feel to pull that lever on election day 2012 (11/6/2012). I have a countdown marked on my calendar – thirteen months from this coming Thursday.

    Hear me out for a second…

    It seams to me that this administration is playing the bait and switch bailout game with the country. Look at all the bailouts the government issued in the banking industry (TARP) and the auto industry. The old “they are too big to fail” argument netted the first government owned auto company, general motors.

    But the Solyndra ordeal is even more sinister. I liken it to Obama’s philosophy on Fast and Furious, where he let the guns walk so that he could attack the gun industry. Just like Fast and Furious Obama is using a “so called disaster” to grab an opportunity to grow the power of the government. He knew Solyndra was going to go bankrupt, but let it happen so the government could get control of the solar industry. Wait and see if Obama and his cronies don’t buy off the Solyndra plant as a government owned entity, next will be the oil industry, etc.

    Maybe this all sounds conspiracy theory-like, but I would not put it past this administration!

    • Anonymous

      My theory :
      Obama knew that Solyndra and all other greeny companies would fail,
      but he had to give taxpayer money to his bundlers because he had already collected the kickbacks in advance and he needed even more .
      He had counted on the media to cover-up for him when *h1t hit the fan and keep their mouths shut , and thats where he kinda miscalculated !

    Sure OK dear leader. Just don’t ever reuse the excuse of republicans to threaten old people by not being able to afford sending out their social security checks.

    You want to restore a sense that America can manufacture? Really? Is that what you would like? Then resign and let a capitalist show you how it’s done. Don’t want to do that? Then disband the EPA and many other departments that hinder this.
    You want to compete with China? Then use our resources. You know, the resources that we have more of than any country in the world. I’m speaking about oil, gas and coal, just like China is doing.
    Solyndra went through the regular review process? Then your review process is a sham, just like your administration. When are you going to realize that your B.S. is now apparent to a majority of the nation and we also realize that the longer you hold your position the worse off our country is. Oh. I forgot. That is your ultimate goal. To do as much harm to our country as you possibly can.
    People felt that Solyndra was a good bet? Who felt and expressed that? Your advisers certainly didn’t, but then maybe they weren’t in on the payoff and had no horse in that race.
    Great phrase “overall portfolio” kinda makes you sound real and smart and on top of things. How come in the “overall portfolio” of clean energy Solyndra is the only, or, one of the few that you personally visited or did you also visit the one that Pelosi has a “circuitous” interest in?
    You are a detriment to my country and I just hope your damage can be overcome.

    It galls me and I’m sure I’m not alone that the honchos at Solyndra are allowed to take the fifth when it comes to taxpayers money. $538,000,000 gone and we don’t deserve any answers?

    Chu. You seem calm, cool and collected. Just as one would expect a person in your position to be who has the best interest of our country at heart and is doing the best and most honest job he can to look out for our interests. Wish you the absolute best in your future career. I’m sure your forthrightness in this matter will do you much good in any future endeavor you might pursue.

    Should you require an objective referral in the future I would be very glad to tell anyone exactly what I think of you.

    unless you have ‘skin in the game’ (you own the biz, your employees have a stake, you have shareholders) a govt. subsidy will never make a frog into a prince… ever.

    If we want to compete… the federal government needs to get the hell out of the way! Socialist want green so they stop carbon based production or make it almost impossible to develop and produce then throw OUR money away on a form of energy production that is simply not yet capable of meeting demand…using ‘keeping up with China’ as the scapegoat. A ruse. Free markets will meet energy demand with the most efficient, effective methods available…if the federal government and progressives would simply let it.
