No, really. That was the response to the news that Solyndra, Obama’s epic “green energy” taxpayer-funded failure, was going under.
From the RNC’s Tumblr:
Its name should be changed to Solyndr-Ugh.
The emails, released today by the House Energy and Commerce Committee, get even worse, if you can believe that.
That’s right. The White House was being told not to invest in Solyndra. More from NRO:
E-mail from Solyndra investor Brad Jones to top Obama economic adviser Larry Summers:
“One of our solar companies with revenues of less than $100 million (and not yet profitable) received a government loan of $580 million; while that is good for us, I can’t imagine it’s a good way for the government to use taxpayer money (I’d prefer my opinion about that specific company to be between us). Every administration seems to feel it knows better than the private markets how to allocate capital, and I’ve just never seen that be true.”
And still worse:
The Bank of Washington.
Citizens funding the “Bank of Washington” are rightfully enraged. Being happy warriors, they turned their anger into real truth to power mockery.
And citizens on Twitter decided to list them all!
Bingo. Time to stimulate some clearing out of the cronies in office. How many more months until November? UGH.
