Solyndra…the gift that keeps on giving…

November 7, 2011

Here is a link to my previous post about Solyndra.  I left that post with this question:

“Hey Obama, how many other cronies did YOU pay off??”

Now, it seems that question is beginning to be answered.  Here is a link to an article on the Daily Caller.  A few quotes:

“Lazard Ltd. is a top contributor to the Democratic Party, not to mention a top 20 donor to the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.”

or

“Bonuses were awarded to more than a dozen Solyndra executives on top of their already lucrative salaries.”

Thanks Obama, I appreciate you GIVING AWAY MY MONEY!!!   NOT!!!

How many OTHER cronies has Obama paid off??

Solyndra??

November 3, 2011

I’m sure everyone has already heard about how the corrupt Obama Administration paid off Obama’s political cronies in the Solyndra affair.  Of course, the inept Obama Administration is denying anything of the sort and says they “reviewed” everything and gave the money to Solyndra based on “the merits after extensive analysis”.  But after reading an article this morning from Fox News, I have a few questions.  First a few quotes from the article:

“Lazard was hired to look at Solyndra’s financing after the company received a $528 million loan in 2009 and $69 million in private money earlier this year in a restructuring deal approved by the Obama administration.  Under the second deal, the private investors moved ahead of U.S. taxpayers in case of a default on the loan, a fact that GOP investigators have sharply criticized.

“Lazard was paid $1 million for analyzing options related to the faltering company, Solyndra Inc.”

Hey Obama, wouldn’t it have saved the American Taxpayer OVER half a BILLION dollars, if you would have had Lazard do the initial analysis??  If Lazard is good enough, to pay $1 MILLION to do an analysis AFTER the fact, I think that would have been PRUDENT.

Hey Obama, IF the Department of Energy “analyzers” were SO good, WHY did we pay Lazard $1 MILLION to do any analyzing??  Who do YOU know at Lazard?  Was this an open bid contract?  I would have done the analysis for half that amount!!

Hey Obama, I have not heard of YOU firing any of the idiots that approved this loan, why not??

Hey Obama, I have not heard of YOU firing anyone who “approved” the creditors moving in front of the American Taxpayer, why not??

Hey Obama, how many other cronies did YOU pay off??

Ford and the US Government…..

September 27, 2011

Has anyone heard the one where Ford puts together an Advertising campaign, that basically says:

“I wasn’t going to buy another car that was bailed out by the government. I was going to buy from a manufacturer that’s standing on their own: win, lose, or draw. That’s what America is about is taking the chance to succeed and understanding when you fail that you gotta’ pick yourself up and go back to work!!”

 The Ad stars Chris McDaniel.

Here are links, on BigGovernment and the Blaze, to articles that have the link to the Ad.

If you viewed the links, you would also notice that Ford is apparently pulling the Ad campaign, NOT because of any pressure from the Obama administration (because it would not look good to get beat by the ONLY successful Auto company in the country), but because:

“(W)e were not coerced into pulling the ad down. The campaign continues to run. We took the ad out of rotation after 4 weeks which is consistent with the typical lifecycle for the campaign.”

Got that??  It is NOT because the government pressured them!!!

Then, while perusing the internet for information I come across this article on Zerohedge, where I find this little statistic:

“Ford gets another $163 million.”

In the month of August!!!  From the Government!!!  And now, they pull the Ad??  Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm……….

And, in case you were wondering………..the Ad was GREAT!!!  It IS American!!!  Now, it looks as if Ford is selling out…………and for about 1/3 of Solyndra……….I mean, couldn’t they have held out for more????

How much did the bailout of Government Motors cost US??

September 23, 2011

Here is an article from MSNBC and one from the Blaze.  Both articles state what The Obama Administration has said, which is:

“The Obama administration said Wednesday that the government will lose about $14 billion in taxpayer funds from the bailout of the U.S. auto industry.”

Before you read any further decide if you agree with this statement or not.  Do you believe them??  Do you think that the bailout of General Government Motors is ONLY going to cost US $14,000,000,000 ($14 BILLION)?

Today, there are more facts coming out about the bailout and the subsequent bankruptcy.  The following are quotes from Redstate and the Wall Street Journal.

“Now it turns out, according to documents filed with federal regulators, the revamping left the car maker with another boost as it prepares to return to the stock market. It won’t have to pay $45.4 billion in taxes on future profits.”

You read that correctly, YOU and I are supplying an addition $45,400,000,000 to Government Motors.  That is an additional $45.4 BILLION.  Because it is not as if there is not enough money for other programs.

Also, The One, the smartest President in the history of the world, President Obama is either ignorant of the situation (I doubt it) or he has outright LIED to the American public………….AGAIN.  He has misstated the COST to the American Public by 75 %!!!  $14 Billion that he says it is going to cost us plus the $45.4 Billion that he has given away in future tax dollars equals $59.4 BILLION.  And that is IF His estimates are correct on the $14 Billion, which is questionable, considering the stock since the IPO has FALLEN and Government Motors can not sell the cars that it has!!

Wow, I never thought I would say this, but I wish he had treated GM just like Solyndra!!  Then it would have only cost us half a Billion dollars.

Obama and Solyndra…..

September 16, 2011

I saw this this morning and can only think of two words!!

Bull Sh%^!!!!!

Obama did a presentation of His initiatives AT this companies headquarters, and now you are trying to tell me that he did not know.   BULL SH%^!!!!!!!!!!!!

This from Solyndra’s own website:

“The leadership and actions of President Barack Obama, Energy Secretary Steven Chu and the U.S. Congress were instrumental in concluding this offer for a loan guarantee,” said Solyndra CEO and founder, Dr. Chris Gronet.”

Try again Mr. Carney!!!  By the way, I hope that ALL future employers of yours know that you are a LIAR!!!!!  Maybe you could get career advice from “Baghdad Bob”.
