Recent remarks by President Obama to a Denver-based TV anchor stand in stark contrast to new emails obtained by CompleteColorado.com.
This past Friday, President Obama told KUSA’s Kyle Clark, in response to a question on the federally-backed but failed Colorado company Abound Solar, “And these are decisions, by the way, that are made by the Department of Energy (DOE), they have nothing to do with politics.”
And just one year ago, White House advisor David Plouffe had this exchange with NBC’s David Gregory regarding the political questions surrounding many of the DOE-backed projects:
Were campaign contributors involved here in terms of their projects that ultimately forced the government’s hand?
Absolutely not. These decisions about the loan program were made by career officials in the Department of Energy on the merits.
CompleteColorado.com has obtained emails that seem to directly contradict Plouffe’s answer, and also challenge the President’s notion that the DOE’s loan decisions were universally autonomous within the agency. The emails also lend even more credence to the theory that the loan to Abound Solar was political payback to Colorado’s wealthy Democratic benefactor and Gang-of-Four member, Pat Stryker.
At a 16 % success rate that the White House has with “Green Energy” , they would be better their averages at the race track by thorowing darts at the daily run down sheet on the wall to pick winners .
The Federal Government has funded foreign investments rather than even supporting our own national interests.
That’s our tax money that Zero has invested in foreign cesspools ( China , Brazil ,etc. ).
Let’s keep U.S. investment money in the U.S.
We have gone from “ leader of the Free World “ to the Bananna Republic of Norht America.
One of the more awkward titles in recent history.
