It’s not. Both green energy and Wall Street paid off Obama with huge campaign contributions.

Banks are not necessarily using OUR money, from general treasury.

There was (theoretically) a limit to the taxpayer’s risk with the banks... FDIC insurance.

Hussein is using taxpayer money. The banks risked their own capital.

I think that is a big difference. Of course, Hussein and the rest of D.C. voted to bail out many banks--or force them to take TARP money.

Banks perform due diligence when issuing a loan such as this; they'll pour over a qualified business plan, they'll want to see balance sheets, and understand expected profits, operating costs, and other financial details.

Solyndra appears to have received the taxpayer-financed loan through backroom deals, not based on their business case, but based on who they knew, or offered their political contributions.
