As conservatives raise some uncomfortable questions about issues like the billions of taxpayer dollars dished out to companies like the failed Solyndra green energy company, the liberal hypocrites are beginning to squirm as reporters ask questions like this:
Bain Capital had some losses but there were many gains and the only losses were suffered those who had invested in private businesses; in the Solyndra scandal the losses were suffered by American taxpayers because it was total government money dished out to Solyndra which went belly-up resulting in job losses and similar disasters. How does that square up?
Jay Carney— the ever-spinning press secretary who tries desperately to cover up the many economic gaffes (and others) is one of the Chief Squirmers recently.
The Obama administration gave Solyndra $535 million dollars only to have the company go bankrupt in 2010.
That Solyndra money was only part of the 70 billion effort by the Obama administration efforts to displace oil and gas energy with green-tech including proposals for using algae and spinach for fuel , windmills— which kill birds in flight by the millions—- (that is not eco-friendly) and put more millions of taxp[ayer dollars into things like the GM Chevy Volt.
According to an article by Neil Munroe, “Democrats Squirm at Solyndra vs Bain questions”
the now very public debate over green tech waste is damaging the Obama campaign for re-election.
On Tuesday Jay Carney struggled to answer a reporter’s question about Bain vs
Solyndra with a 42 second hem- and- haw “answer”:
(regarding the Solyndra failure)
“Look, there, there,—- there is a difference in that…your overall view of what your repsonsibilities are as present and what your view of the economic future is…” (that was only part of the squriming) It did not make sense of course..little of what Carney says does.
Republicans scoffed at the attempts to justify the crass government use of tax dollars to shore up green tech entities.
“Obama’s investment decisions were infused with politics based on political optics and not workers’ fates and the administration chose winners and losers while taxpayers held the bag” said a statement from Jonathan Collegio the communications director at the GOP -aligned American Crossroads group.”
(Neil Munro article)
“Obama’s deputy campaign manager tried to explain why it is okay that Solyndra laid off 1,110 workers after Obama invested taxpayer money and the Obama administration officials sat in on board meetings.”
(Joe Pounder, research director at the Rep. Natl. Committee) also quoted in Neil Munro article.
As one of Obama’s mentors has so famously said “…..the chickens are coming home to roost” and that applies to Obama and his disastrous policies on economics and green energy…as well as other issues.
The Bain Capital issue which liberals are choosing to trumpet, looks a bit pale in comparison to the taxpayer dollars scandals invested by the O. administration.
No taxpayer money was used at Bain.
And the losses were incredibly small compared to the green energy debacles perpetrated by Obama…to name only one economic debacle created by the present administration. Carney and others are left to stammer and stutter as they trie to tell reporters why things Obama does are just fine and dandy but the capitalists in this nation are the big Baddies.
The tax-funded bankruptcies are supposed to be whiffed away like bothersome gnat clouds.
Voters are too smart to listen to that malarkey.
The Obama cheerleaders may be sorry they every uttered the words “Bain Capital”
