With Tropical Storm Isaac bearing down on the U.S. Gulf Coast just like Hurricane Katrina almost exactly seven years ago, President Barack Obama's top emergency management official looks well positioned to spare his boss a repeat of the ham-handed response that hurt former President George W. Bush.

Obama is a far better President than Bush. Obama knows a storm is going to hit Louisiana and planning to be there for the people of Louisiana unlike the stupid Bush administration. Obama is so much smarter and better than Bush.

Nearly a year to the day after the solar company filed for bankruptcy owing taxpayers more than $500 million, Solyndra is poised to restructure under a deal that government lawyers fear could provide a tax windfall to the investors.
The investment companies, Argonaut Ventures and Madrone Capital Partners, may be able to use net operating losses at Solyndra to avoid “hundreds of millions of dollars in future income taxes” unrelated to the solar company, according to a recent court filing by government lawyers.
In addition to earlier financing, both companies provided $75 million to Solyndra last year in a controversial restructuring deal approved by the Department of Energy (DOE) that allowed the financiers to be paid back before taxpayers in case of a default.
Taxpayers are expected to receive little of the $528 million that Solyndra still owes the government, but DOE officials have defended the restructuring, saying it was the best chance of keeping Solyndra in business.
Republicans said that the restructuring only caused taxpayers to lose more money and that the arrangement violated federal rules.
Argonaut is the investment arm of a family foundation in Oklahoma headed by businessman George Kaiser, who was a fundraiser for then-Sen. Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. Madrone has ties to the family that owns Wal-Mart.
