As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Solyndra Investor Donated to Michelle’s Pet Cause

Wanted to flag this article for you. The Daily Caller is reporting that Solyndra investor George Kaiser donated to a program near and dear to Michelle Obama, Barack Obama buddy Eric Whitaker and Valerie Jarrett during the same year he obtained the half billion dollar loan guarantee for Solyndra.

A great piece of reporting and another piece in the puzzle of the growing scandal surrounding the White House decision to approve taxpayer backing for the dicey solar panel maker, which of course went belly up.

  1. Interesting story. I’m sure we’ll learn more about the web of connections these folks have.

    Obama’s supporters are finding out that he’s not only incompetent, but he’s just like most other Politicians. Hope and Change, huh?

    • What’s ironic, is that this is all coming out while he’s unveiling his Jobs plan and his (fourth of the year) deficit plan – the Solyndra debacle illustrates that he has no fricken clue. Crony capitalism. The failure of the government to identify a “healthy” industry. A complete failure on creating jobs. It’s all there.

      Any time anyone argues for Obama’s deficit or Job’s bill, I’m just gonna save myself the effort and just utter the word “Solyndra.”

  2. “pay-to-play scheme that reaches all the way up to the highest levels of the White House.”

    You can take the guys out of Chicago but you can’t take Chicago out of the guys!

  3. Scott got the drop on me.

    So, how is that hope and changie thing working for ya?

    Same old garbage that Barry wailed about during his ’08 campaign.

    This will become a bigger story than the front office would like it to be.

  4. Yes We Con!

    And by the way Scott, you are right, but it won’t make one bit of difference to the left.

    It’s form over substance with them. Always has been, always will be.

    • I think the proper liberal response (yawn) is that “Everybody does it.” They refuse to be outraged at the behavior of liberal politicians because they merely argue, basically, that two wrongs make a right. If they can find an instance of similar behavior by the opposition, then who cares. carry on.

  5. Appointing a special prosecutor is probably the only way to give taxpayers any justice. This administration will ‘shuck and jive’ until the new media stops talking about it. The guy sitting in the oval office (~45 minutes a day) is a crook, and he along with anyone who knowingly participated in this con game need to see some prison time.

    • Agreed Susan.
      I watched the CSPAN broadcast on the interrogation of the ‘overseers’ of the Solyndra debacle.
      One thing was immediately obvious to me,..the dems see nothing wrong with what went on, and the reps took them to task and essentially got the old adage, I wasn’t there at the time, not my problem.
      My question, why didn’t the congressional committee request the appearance of the individuals that WERE instrumental in devising this charade on the American taxpayer ?
      Where are they ? Witness protection program ?

      • My guess is he is citing executive privilege. It is not going to work for him in the long run. Richard Nixon tried to keep his tapes out the hands of the special prosecutor by claiming executive privilege. He lost after taking it all the way to the Supreme Court.

  6. Most companies that cooperate with her “Let’s Move” campaign get Obamacare waivers, ie McDonalds. Walmart put one of her people in an executive position and changed the entire product line in the grocery section. They were losing money and fired the Obama friend but not before they got the bankcard swipe fees transferred to them from banks in Dodd-Frank financial overhaul. Coincidence?
