According to Hot Air, the White House is refusing to accept the subpoena from the Congress. The post from Hot Air has me thinking about some of the wider issues involved with this particular scandal.
1. This is evidence of the way in which Østupid has always done his deals. As you are all aware Larry Wells has been doing a stupendous job covering the early history of Østupid with his real pay for play scandals. The LSM has continued to put their fingers in their ears as they go around singing “la la la la”. The Blagojavich scandal is directly linked to the Solyndra scandal.
2. George Kaiser, the CEO of Solyndra was a major campaign bundler for Østupid. This should be ringing alarm bells – perhaps the Liberty Bell should be ringing over such a revelation.
3. Østupid claims that making the guarantees for Solyndra was “a good bet”. Really? Let’s just look at how Østupid had done business in Chicago with a range of individuals who are now in prison or have been charged with felonies. Blagojevich is a good starting point, but he is a small cog in the wheel.
HotAir has rightly picked up on some of the wider issues that can be raised over the mere fact that the Department of Energy gave Solyndra those guarantees that were worth more then $500 million. The terminology that springs to mind is PAY TO PLAY. George Kaiser as a member of the DNC was not arms length when it came to such a loan being guaranteed. His position as a major fundraiser and bundler for the Østupid campaign smacks of cronyism, and of course there is that stench or taint that this loan guarantee was indeed a payback for helping this crook gain the White House.
This scandal is far worse than anything that was done by Tricky Dicky Nixon. It is worse than anything done by the Kennedys and it is way worse than anything contemplated by Roosevelt. It is cronyism at its worst.
Yet, there is hardly a word about this scandal in the LSM. The LSM need to start manning up and they need to start doing their job – reporting on such matters that really are scandalous. Taxpayer money is being thrown in the toilet. It is not just Pigford which was a reparations cover-up, and it is not just Solyndra. There is another scandal brewing, related to wifi networks.
