Is Fisker Obama’s Newest Solyndra?

by Keith Koffler on April 3, 2013, 7:53 pm

The luxury green carmaker got nearly $200 million in federal tax dollars to help very rich people feel good about driving fancy cars. Now Fisker is headed toward the garbage heap, with your money in hand.

Gee another shocker! Obummer and his brain squad have the car market all figured out. “Mr President these solar panels and electric cars will be a smash!” How much money do we have to flush before this administration stops meddling in the market?

and, just like Soyndra, crickets from the media… In the end, Enron will look like a quarter-car ride at the grocery store compared to the Obama administration’s malfeasance circus.

Nicely put, Rod.

Any chance you can hire out your math skills to the Party Palace at 1600 Pennsylvania?

Tomorrow’s headline: FISKER KARMATOSE!

Isn’t it interesting how none of the investors (aka Obama political donors) ever lose their britches in these utopian green energy boondoggles. It’s always the American taxpayers who take it in the shorts. If we are ever blessed with the opportunity to escape this soft tyranny, these crooked politicians and their crony capitalist friends need to see some serious prison time.

Please, can we start with Corzine?

Sadie April 3, 2013 at 11:02 pm

Always thought MF Global was aptly named.

Susan April 3, 2013 at 11:12 pm

Absolutely. Corzine is a bigger scam artist than Bernie Madoff ever dreamed of being.

Greta asks, “How can this happen again”?

Very simple:

1. The Obama administration is totally clueless. But it’s not their job to be investors.

2. The mainstream media will totally ignore this. If you don’t watch Fox News, you won’t hear anything about it.

3. If Ed Henry asks Jay Carney about it, Jay’s response will be something like, “No one has a perfect track record. Next question”.

I thought his missing 20 of 22 shots the other day was a fitting symbol of his presidency.
