It also turns out that there's a direct connection, despite denials, between Kaiser and Obama and this $530 million Taxpayer gift to Solyndra. Kaiser denies discussing Solyndra with anyone in the Oval Office even though Obama made two separate trips to Solyndra's manufacturing offices. You can read about this skulduggery here: LINK Furthermore, Solyndra officials and investors made at least 20 trips to the White House between March 2009 and April 2011. How about if someone directly asks Obama if he ever had conversations with Kaiser about Solyndra? A good accounting of Solyndra/Obama connection is here: LINK
Finally, the FBI is raiding Solyndra. According to a company spokesman:
Miller said the company is "fully cooperating" with federal officials. He said he did not know the purpose of the search, but he speculated it could have something to do with the $535 million in loan guarantees the Department of Energy awarded to Solyndra, a company President Obama visited in May 2010, touting the company as the wave of clean technology and the future for alternative fuel sources.Here's the LINK The cynical side of me is wondering if Team Teleprompter ordered the raid in order to seize and destroy any possible documented link between Obama and Kaiser. You think I'm nuts and the Government doesn't destroy documents illegally? Go read my post in August about the SEC destroying thousands of docs, some that might have been used to nail Madoff a lot sooner. Once again I would like to see ALL of the documents at Solyndra put into a lock-box and have a completely independent firm conduct a full forensic accounting. I want to know where that $530 million went and I want to know just how cozy this Oklahoma redneck and Obama really are.
Have previous Presidents engaged in this corrupt behavior? They all have. BUT Obama specifically got elected on the promise of changing DC's old ways and cleaning up the vile cesspool of total corruption that is Washington DC. On that account Obama has FAILED.
And now Obama wants to get in front of the country and ask the Taxpayers to support him on spending $300 billion of OUR money to create jobs. After Obama's track record of corrupt waste and failure, not only do I hope that Congress denies this request but I hope the public starts screaming for more accountability and truth - because the promise of that upon which got Obama elected has been appallingly and tragically broken...
