Obama today on Solyndra loan: "This was not our program, per se." Except - it was in the D-only stimulus law... marketplace.org/topics/economy…—

This morning, the buck-passer-in-chief tried to distance himself from Solyndra. Solyndra was that green-energy company – upon which President Obama lavished praise – that went bust after receiving a $535 million government loan, courtesy of the American taxpayers. Love ‘em ‘n leave ‘em? Really? Oh, President Obama…why so fickle?
He doesn’t seem to have grasped the fact that what he says actually is heard by other people, particularly when he says something ridiculous. Just because his integrity is like a sieve doesn’t mean our memories are. And Twitter wasn’t about to let him get away with it.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy the best “oh SNAP!” per se tweets!
Solyndra "not our program, per se," says not my president, per se—

Is "per se" the rhetorical equivalent of "fingers crossed"? Have I been using it wrong all these years?—

Obama uses "per se" in a speech. I didn't know he could speak Austrian.—

If there’s one thing the president is consistent about, it’s being inconsistent. Will he ever own up to anything?
