A series of emails provided to the House Energy and Commerce Committee from individuals tied to Solyndra offer striking characterizations about running strategy with the White House to secure assistance for the now-bankrupt solar energy firm.
Emails among George Kaiser, head of the George Kaiser Family Foundation; Ken Levit, the executive director of the Foundation; and Steve Mitchell, who manages Argonaut Private Equity and was a member of Solyndra's board; show that Vice President Joe Biden's office were very gung-ho.
"They about had an orgasm in Biden's office when we mentioned Solyndra," reads a Feb. 27, 2010, email from Levit to Mitchell. A follow-up email from Mitchell to Levit later that day responds with: "That's awesome! Get us a (Department of Energy) loan."

O.K. now Bidens fault? Under the bus time?
“They about had an orgasm in Biden’s office when we mentioned Solyndra,”
Ugh. That's an image I can't wash out of my head.
Yea. That’s the thought I had after I got done laughing. :-(
A staff orgasm in Biden’s office -calling Gloria Allred!
Bankrupting the country
paying pack political cronies
foisting non-viable energy sources on our capitalist economy
making sheeperals feel good about themselve
yep, it’s a winner all the way around.
I can’t handle the thought of seeing Joe Biden’s “O” face.
Biden’s staff is not something I want to think about.
Sounds like the Chicago thugs are about to toss SLO JOE under the bus.
All of these philanthropic “foundations” which the wealthy have used to shield their assets and which have become overrun with communists and such, need to be shut down.
The letters of the law that created them need to be repealed, and the entirety of their assets distributed to the rightful heirs and the requisite taxed paid.
We should no longer allow this sort of malevolent actions on the part of these foundations. Kaiser, Carnegie, Ford, Rockefeller, DuPont, etc. They are nothing more than communist front groups shielded by their “philanthropy” when they are in reality misanthropy.
Did they have their orgasm in the Whitehouse sink?
YES, YES, and YES.
Those who originally endowed them would be sickened by what they have become.
Lesson to be learned: it’s nice to want to help people who need help. It’s nice to be concerned about future generations. But the philanthropist has to bear in mind that
a) big piles of money attract evil people who see it as something to help them pursue their own schemes as it is eventually is no longer protected by the good and wise person who acquired the wealth originally, but instead by administrative types who, over generations, become infiltrated by people with increasingly lousy character
b) future generations of society ultimately have to take care of themselves - no amount of inherited money will truly help them in the final analysis.
c) people are much better off if they support themselves. For example, if future generations need resources for medical research - they should be setting aside some of their own income to acquire those resources. Each generation of society has it’s own wealth and income and needs to learn to allocate them wisely. For another example, each generation needs to realize the benefits of pure research and figure out a way to continue it without relying on grandpa’s endowment to fund it. After all, it’s practically impossible that the amounts of money yielded by endowments would automatically be in the optimal amount for the resources needed to propel these types of endeavors in the future - the endower endowed what they had, they did not know future needs or future costs so they could not consider them in setting up the endowment.
You could if you were a fellow member of the Cracked Head Society...like Joe. Thoughts just leak right out and form a puddle on the floor.
