Posted on 10/07/2011 5:03:31 PM PDT by Nachum
Buried within an ABC News story about todays release of hundreds of Solyndra-related emails is a reminder of what White House Spokesman Jay Carney said at a press conference late last month after being asked about the involvement of a Department of Energy consultant and Obama fundraiser named Steve Spinner:
Carney replied: Its my understanding, at least with regard to the gentleman you just mentioned [Steve Spinner], that he had no connection to overseeing the loan guarantee program.
After hearing Carney say that, your first instinct might have been to think, Hey, Spinner must have a connection to overseeing the loan guarantee program!
Now back to the top of the story for confirmation that you should always trust your instincts:

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I’m surprised they release anything of value that isn’t blacked out with redactions. The administration has been pretty bare-faced in saying they did it, they have their reasons, and it’s protected communication, so there.
“An elite Obama fundraiser hired to help oversee the administrations energy loan program pushed and prodded career Department of Energy officials to move faster in approving a loan guarantee for Solyndra, even as his wifes law firm was representing the California solar company, according to internal emails made public late Friday.”
I think that someone could be facing ethics or criminal charges over that. Maybe more than one someones.
In a just world.
“...wife’s law firm...”
The timing of the document dumps doesn’t matter because the media isn’t doing updates. But when the information gets digested and leads to resignations and indictments, we will get their attention. The Leftist media is covering this only a little better than the global warming e-mails.
Drip, drip, drip.
Jay Carney: Designated liar.
It’s funny that the official administration Carney Barker’s news briefings seem more and more like Baghdad Bob’s.
no one is watching the store. it seems presidents can toss cash and favors where they want to and no one does anything about it.
Didn’t Valerie Jarrett say Obama was ready to RULE from day one? The man’s been RULING. There is no authority above Obama.
