Skip to comments.Breaking with Romney, Murkowski warns against ‘knee-jerk’ reaction to Solyndra
Posted on 06/05/2012 1:05:06 PM PDT by C19fan
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) is breaking with Mitt Romney and some Capitol Hill Republicans by expressing support for federal green-energy programs, including the one that provided loan help to the now-bankrupt Solyndra.
Murkowski, the top Republican on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, said she supports continuation of the Energys Department loan-guarantee program for green energy, and more broadly backs a federal role in boosting market deployment of alternative energy.

So, 500 million, wasted US Taxpayer dollars aren’t enough for a knee-jerk reaction? What dollar amount WOULD suffice?
I’m sorry, I cannot stand that woman, Murkowski. She is going to be an embarassment to the GOP for the forseeable future. Ugh!
Right - like anyone is going to listen to that stupid Arctic queen bitch!
Stupid RINO is from a state that has untold millions of barrels of oil that the enviros and feds have prohibited companies from extracting. She would do well instead to echo the refrain of former Governor Palin: “Drill, baby, DRILL!”
She’s as useful to the Republican party as she is beautiful.
Stabbing Alaskans in the back again. Thanks Turdkowski.
. . . and she’s from a Petroleum producing state that has suffered directly at the hands of this administration and its anti-hydrocarbon agenda. I knew that cow was a RINO, but stupid as well, tsk, tsk.
Why doesn’t she just become a “D” and get it over with?
Just because 1/2 billion is up in smoke, let’s not jump to any hasty conclusions.
Same philosophical approach is being taken by the SEC in the MF Global situation.
Will somebody put this woman out on a ice floe and set her adrift? please?
Maybe Palin will run against her. Yeah, I know, but I can dream, can’t I?
That is the rub. She ran against a Republican who won the Primary, The Democrats elected her. She votes with the Democrats, why doesn’t she just change parties and stop crapping on Republicans?
We often serve up some well-deserved flak towards the Snowe/Collins RINO duo, but frankly, Murkowski is in a number of ways worse. There is a corrupt vileness to her that makes her a really loathesome piece of work.
At least Snows and Collins got there on their own merit. The only reason Murkowski was a senator in the first place was because her daddy appointed her as a replacement Senator when he was governor of AK.
>> This RINO running her stupid mouth again is not surprising but the fact she will be Chairwomen of a Senate Committee is an outrage. “ <<<
This is what happens when Republican voters cooperate with Pavlov. Expect more of the same, as the Republican Party is at least socialist by now, if not worse (as may be the case with Lisa the Mouth) and have every intention of moving the Party to the LEFT. See Mitt Romney, Socialist, at the top of the ticket.
We asked for it and we got it. Complying with the Dole, Cain and now Romney strategy of the Establishment to deliver whose turn they deemed it in every case, has killed the Republican Party.
The mime was ALWAYS “....this is the most important election of a lifetime!”, they threatened.
After Romney, it will be much worse next time, because we drink the Kool Aide and WILL. NOT. STOP. THEM.
We are cowards now.
Murkowski. Nobody is against green jobs that make sense. What obama and the socialist democrats are doing and what you seem to be agreeing with is green jobs for the sake of green jobs to score political points with his leftist supportors and campaign donors. Solyndral fits into that catagory. Bad business plan. Overspending on an expansion that was not needed. Pushing the loan through to support crony capitalism.
woe to us, that we couldn’t get our joe miller past the corrupt republican establishment in alaska.
Well, Bless her heart!
Psst Dummy, will you please join the Democrats. You were never a REPUBLICAN!!!
Murkowski is worse than Graham, worse than McIgnorant, worse than any of the lower 48 RINOs.
Joe Miller should be the Senator from Alaska right now, but Murksleazeball couldn’t take a hint.
And now we’re stuck with it until 2016.
Wouldn't that be WATER POLLUTION... if she fell into the ocean?
We defeated Murkowski in the primary and she had to run as an independent, what got her past the finish line was that the Senate republicans endorsed her, promising the Alaskan voters that they would be forgiven, and that she would retain seniority if they would choose her over Miller.
The GOPe ran against the republican tea party nominee in her race.
Murkowski and Romney are from the same branch of the party.
Yep, and after Romney appointed the pro-Obamacare Mr. Leavitt yesterday, I’m just waiting for Obama to say during a debate:
“Republicans complain about Obamacare all day long while doing a whole lot to help make it happen now that it has become law; heck even Republican voters voted to nominate Mr. Romney and he practically invented Obamacare”. “So I ask Republicans to ask yourselves, “What is it I really dislike about President Obama”? “Your actions at the ballot box don’t seem to match up with your rhetoric”. “So many Republican voters went to townhall meetings 2 years ago, and yelled at Democrat politicians about Obamacare, and then 2 years later, voted for Mr. Romney to be their nominee”. “Mr. Romney has surrounded himself with staff like Mr. Leavitt who support Obamacare. I just don’t understand what the Republican Voter wants”.
Precise dialogue there.
Democrats seem to at least work with their subversive set of voters, particularly the ones who are moderately underground, feigning low profiles and tucked away in various communes for Marxism, otherwise known as every public university in the USA, to which we dunces
deign to proudly send our own children.
Astounding really, that we sit here wringing our hands like always every dang election rather than cleaning our own house and uniting in a single front to overwhelm the opposition.
Because we will not rise up and clean out our own house, we can not unite during any primaries. ALL our candidates should make excellent, conservative presidents, with no culls among them. But no, we tolerate liberals among us and they are in office now and at the top of the establishment ignoring us, manipulating our ideals and capitalizing on our fears.
Nice to hear someone unafraid. It will be even worse next time.
I thought she was an independent. Repubican? The Republican candidate lost to her. Is that right?
