LOL - Yeah Barry is going to fight one of his biggest bundlers for a little of the money he gave him back? Sure, I believe that. Just one more little bit of news leaked out to appease the people who are disgusted with all the wasted money and the governments ho hum attitude toward the huge loss. Wait and see, if by some miracle Barry gets reelected, he will quietly just let this little tidbit fade into the background. You know Dems. are not honest, really, they lie just for the fun of it.

LOL I see the Phantom Of the Icon's has visited us. Too bad they have nothing to disprove our statements, just the cowards way out of clicking on a few icons. But, at least it keeps them occupied and not out behind the wheel of a car. That may be a GOOD thing. LOL ;()

Nothing will happen to Pelosi's buddies at Solyndra as long as we only have obama in the white house. Obama doesn't even stand with citizens against illegal aliens. he certainly won't grow a pair and stand up to Pelosi.

The Obama WH Not Only Gave the Donors an Obama Stimulus Loan but it also wrote verbiage into the loan agreement that IF Solyndra went bankrupt, Obama's Donors at Solyndra would Get THEIR MONEY OUT Before the Tax Payer!




Obama is a True Scumbag!

This is the conversation of STYLE vs SUBSTANCE.
Style does not read the second paragraph, And without a poetic thread, it will not be remembered. This is the benefit of keeping K-Street on speed dial.
Washington is about, understanding the fine print. Any lawyer that will tell you that the words don't matter, should be fired.

If there is evidence of a kickback the Justice Department should investigate.

Kickbacks are normally in the vein of campaign contributions.
One 1% is the norm .A $500M gov't help package warrants a collection of $5M in campaign donations.That's why corp Cronies such as Steve Skinner of SOLYNDRA fame bundles for Obama and attend the DNC.

The above is the norm for BOTH parties.

The Dems are getting so desparate for cash Rahm Emanuel is hitting the donation trail even as his city faces a teacher strike.....but priorities are priorities.

Some how they will get away with it. You probably won't hear anything from Demorats about Solyndra getting the tax cuts.
