>>This wasnt about energy. This was about pouring massive amounts of money into crony pockets.<<
You’re absolutely correct. And it’s all well-documented in the book “Throw Them All Out”, a book that every American should read so they fully understand the games that are being played with our tax dollars.
Even the internal government reports put together to assess the way the grants and loan guarantees were awarded state that the funds went primarily to friends and financiers of the Obama campaign.
Does the MSM even care?
By the way, Romney is lining up support, according to reports, by funneling campaign funds to key Republicans in early primary states, so he knows the game well, and it’s unlikely to change if we elect him to replace Obama. Our tax dollars will just be re-directed to a different set of “friends and financiers.”
An additional observation:
Since the original source was the MSM’s very own New York Times, I figured I’d better read the entire article to see if they were finally getting into the outrageous way these subsidies were granted, essentially being payback for previous campaign donations.
Not a peep in the entire article.
