Skip to comments.Obama Blames Congress (Republicans) For Solyndra: "Not Our Program, Per Se"
Posted on 03/22/2012 1:03:36 PM PDT by pabianice
In an interview with Marketplace.org (full audio), President Obama defends using U.S. taxpayer money to invest in solar energy projects. During the interview, Obama was asked about Solyndra, one of the more well-known solar panel companies that failed after receiving a loan guarantee from the Department of Energy.
However, Obama told Marketplace that "this was not our program." Obama attempts to make the case that this falls on the lap of Congress because they put together the loan guarantee program. Read the transcript below.
Marketplace's Kai Ryssdal : With all respect, it was kind of a gutsy move I think to come to a solar facility. Your administration has staked a lot on clean technology, green jobs. The biggest item most people know about that strategy is, of course, a company named Solyndra, which your administration gave loan guarantees to, that then went bankrupt and has been the subject of many investigations. Are you doing your "all of the above" strategy right if that's what we have to show for it -- Solyndra?

Seems to me that even the dems in Congress would be getting sick of this. If they had any pride, they would call him out on this.
Doofus POTUS ILLEGITIMUS
So, the Republicans are to “blame” for funneling taxpayer money to 0bama’s donors through “green energy” projects...
This was not our program per se'
Is anything ever this douche bag’s fault..he blames everyone else for every horrible decision he has ever made..what a jackass
He UNDERSTANDS that his followers are just stupid sheep, who will continue to bleet “Oba-a-a-a-a-ma!”, no matter what he does.
He also understands that his followers in the media will fire and blacklist any “Journalist” who dares to call him out on his lying.
Obama’s bizarre war on carbon energy sources is causing misery and unemployment. He lives in a green fantasy land and is clearly delusional. He is simply not capable to accept resposiility for poor outcomes of his absurd policies. He is an evil and dangerous man.
Obama the fraud is a dumbass liar.
The truth is so obvious.
Thats affirmative action in action. :) Its says (for a select few) no matter how badly you fail you’ve succeeded. Those types cant distinguish success from failure, it all looks the same to them.
Memo to His Excellency:
The state grants drivers licenses too but they don’t give the operator the license to drive while intoxicated...you jackass.
FUBO to the big lunatic!...
True, except that is not bizarre it is simply Marxist revolutionary tactics in action. It is what he expects and wants to happen. It's what 'community organizers' do. They cause misery and enhance to justify the next big power grab.
He lives in a green fantasy land and is clearly delusional.
False. He is under no illusions, and believes no fantasies. The illusions and fantasies belong to you as you assume he is a patriotic American and for such an American to do what Obama is doing would require them to be under the influence of fantasy and illusion. He is planning on failure and the ensuing misery to enable a following power grab, or 'fundamental transformation' in his terms.
He is simply not capable to accept resposiility for poor outcomes of his absurd policies.
No, it's you who are not accepting the truth that no rational person could push these policies without knowing that they would fail. And since pushing for failure and following it with transformation is the Marxist process, it is the simplest answer to the conundrum of illusion and fantasy you think you see.
He is an evil and dangerous man.
This is very, very true. Bit it contradicts your view of this being fantasy and illusion. If Obama believed the illusion and fantasy, he's not looking at a future of misery but one of rainbows and skittles and unicorns. It's that he does not believe the fantasy that shows him to be evil.
I agree with your comments. Cloward and Piven published their political Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis and Saul Alinsky believed in it too. The energy crisis is orchestrated. Global warming is orchestrated to give the governments involved the control over the means of production. The mortgage crisis was orchestrated. Operation FAST and Furious was an orchestrated crisis that got cut short of its goal.
How the heck does this guy justify this thinking to himself, much less others?
