  • Will jump all over this, it is SO CLEARLY a crony pony ride.

  • Oh. Wait.

    You didn't know they were the ones who pushed for Solyandra in the first place, did you?

    Silly me.

    By the way, China just shut down a solar fab plant due to illegal river dumping they did to drive their costs so low they killed Solyandra ...

    But then, I've been investing in oil, gas, coal, solar, wind, geothermal, biofuel, ethanol since ... 1976.

    Yup, since I was a teen.

      First: You need to relax some. Popping arteries ain't fun.

      Second: I don't care. I just wanted to make a note to myself what the entry point was going to be for Lewinskygate 2.
      • Lol.

        If there ain't sex, it's not going to happen.

        Sorry, but even IMF Chiefs know that.

        This is America, after all.

        • If there ain't sex, it's not going to happen.

          That's why I said entry point. There was no sex in Whitewater either.
          • You and I both know the only reason that reached impeachment was the sex part.

            This is America.

            International War Crimes and Treason are not used for impeachment.

            Only sex scandals. We just pretend they're "about" something else.

            Try remembering your American History and Civics classes. Think all the way back.

            Same then. Same now.

              Andrew Johnson was getting a BJ from McClellan?

            • ...the sex part

              Hmm, so I guess Miss Scarlett (J) will finally get her day in court

              You do understand, I hope, that the 'sex part' was Clinton's (most likely Hillary's) idea to derail the original investigations and avoid possibly unearthing more details on Iran Contra, which is how Clinton blackmailed his way into the white house

              • Lol. "blackmailed" ... good one.

                Wake me up when your foreign wars of adventure are paid for, k?

                • ?? I'm not sure I get it... my foreign wars...? What does that have to do with the price of rice? The guy passed the audition (with a little help from his friends) and got to play president. It's no different than Macy's Kris Kringle. And as long as the new guy can fill the collection plate and bring in more customers, his position is secure. These people are actors...

    I don't think this one's going anywhere but right-wing talk radio.

    I'm pretty sure nobody in Washington wants anybody looking to closely into how the Dept of Energy gives out money.

    This is going to stay a story in the right-wing echo chamber though. It'll be Obama's Vince Foster or Travelgate or whatever. Sound and fury, signifying nada.

    I don't think Obama will have much trouble getting re-elected, anyway. Rick Perry is already losing ground and we're back to hearing about how the GOP is looking for a savior. I've heard Jeb Bush and Chris Christie mentioned several time in the last week. If Obama can have approval ratings this high with the economy as bad as it is, I don't see how anybody's going to beat him.

    • I don't think Obama will have much trouble getting re-elected, anyway.

      Well, yeah, otherwise I wouldn't bother paying attention to this.

      I'm pretty sure nobody in Washington wants anybody looking to closely into how the Dept of Energy gives out money.

      Under a Republican regime, sure.

      It's not that they're saintlier, or even more circumspect with their graft, it's just that the default position is that letting the hippie party handle anything harder than a baby rattle is gross negligence at best, t
