So the White House didn’t push the Solyndra loan and it just happened on its own? Aren’t they the ones in charge of the stimulus spending? So who did push for it? Santa Claus?

Does the Obama administration watch the news or even read? The DOE already released the e-mails describing the pressure they were under to approve the loan so it could go public!

Here’s my question: Where did the Obama administration get the money for this “loan” if all Federal expenditures must first come from a Congressional authorization?

The original application for the Solyndra loan was during Bush. But....the Bush administration denied the application. Your move, Obama.

It was interesting to hear on Fox Radio News that the OMB guys who testified that there was no pressure "to their knowledge" had in fact no direct knowledge. Thus their testimony was honest, truthful, and completely useless and irrelevant. I am surprised the chair did not say "Get the h3ll out of here and send someone back who actually knows something."

I am still thanking Bill Clinton for the parsing lessons.

In advance of intensifying scrutiny of the loan, the White House has noted that the Bush administration was the first to consider Solyndra’s application, and that some executives at the company have a history of donating to Republicans.

Obama was a LIAR before this. When this is all said and done, he is going to make Nixon look like Reagan! I mean, he is already making Carter look like Clinton!

Plain and simply stated, at this point Obama could not sell water to a person dying of thirst in the middle of the desert!

Many conservative critics have focused on Kaiser because Argonaut Venture Capital, the investment arm of the Tulsa, Okla.-based George Kaiser Family Foundation, is Solyndra's largest private investor. They speculate that Solyndra's loan was either approved or expedited at the request of Kaiser and other political donors to Obama's 2008 presidential campaign.

There's yer puppet master. The Solyndra CES's (Chief Executive Schmucks) will take the fall while Kaiser pockets millions in taxpayer dollars. Welcome to American business.

Anyone could tell by watching Bob Beckel going apesh*t on Fox today that is it a big deal. They are running scared. The question is, not if they are guilty but if the FBI missed any documents that needed to be shredded.
