White House Pressured OMB on Solyndra Loan

From the Washington Post:

The Obama White House tried to rush federal reviewers for a decision on a nearly half-billion-dollar loan to the solar-panel manufacturer Solyndra so Vice President Biden could announce the approval at a September 2009 groundbreaking for the company’s factory, newly obtained e-mails show.

The Silicon Valley company, a centerpiece in President Obama’s initiative to develop clean energy technologies, had been tentatively approved for the loan by the Energy Department but was awaiting a final financial review by the Office of Management and Budget…

Hey, gotta rush it through – Biden needed a photo-op and Obama donors didn’t want to wait around for a payoff on their investment!  I mean, my goodness, its not like it was real money – it was taxpayer money!  You can do anything you want with that!  As long, that is, it goes to line the pockets of liberal crony-capitalists…

Investigate all loans by the US government to all entities – for profit or not for profit; any time the US government guaranteed a loan, we need to find out just how and why it was done.  Who got paid?  Once we know that, we’ll be able to really unravel the corruption.

    Are you sure you really want to investigate the corruption? I’m all for it. It might lead to Bush and Cheney if we investigate the corruption in Iraq and Afghanistan.

      We’ll let it go where it goes…you see, our side never worries about that because most allegations against GOPers are false while most allegations against Democrats work out to the tip of the iceberg. Corruption exists everywhere, but it is endemic to the Democrat party.

    If Bush and Cheney are invoved in corruption then they can share the same jail sail with barry. It is as simple as that camsteel. Something your side will never understand.
