Nice try. Bush pushed for a decision & the application was lacking. Solyndra fixed the application & it was then approved.<quoted text> The Left has insisted that Bush pushed subsidies for Solyndra too and is therefore at least as responsible for the collapse as Obama. Solyndra execs didn’t see it that way in January 2009 and ramped up political pressure to fast-walk approval for the loan guarantees:
Solyndra officials were intensely pressuring Bush administration officials in early January 2009 to approve a government loan for the solar company before the Obama administration took power.
On Jan. 12, 2009, Solyndra CEO Chris Gronet sent an Energy Department official an email marked “urgent” expressing outrage that Bush officials had decided a few days earlier that while the loan application had “merit” it needed further study before officials could move forward with a taxpayer-financed loan.
The Obama administration went ahead with the loan that the Bush administration was reluctant to approve, let alone fast track.
The rest is history.
What that says is that both Bush & Obama believed it was a worthy project.
What it says that it was not Obama feeding his cronies.
What it says is that Solyndra had newer technology that was worth exploring.
What it also says is that you right whiners are liars.
You have no clue about Solyndra, its promise, why it was a good investment at the time the investment was made,. why it failed, or even the purpose of the loan program.
I suggest Sonny, that you get better informed. As of now, you appear to be just another dumbass, uneducated & uninformed right whiner.
