Teapot Solyndra

Going from bad to worse--for the Obozo/Chicago Machine.

...the White House closely monitored the Energy Department’s deliberations over a $535 million government loan to Solyndra, the politically-connected solar energy firm that recently went bankrupt and is now the subject of a criminal investigation....

"Closely monitored" is an implication, not an observation.

...“This deal is NOT ready for prime time,” one White House budget analyst wrote in a March 10, 2009 email, nine days before the administration formally announced the loan. “If you guys think this is a bad idea, I need to unwind the W[est] W[ing] QUICKLY,” wrote Ronald A. Klain, who was chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden, in another email sent March 7, 2009....

(RedState quoting ABC News)

So happens that the Solyndra deal was on the table during the Bush Administration, too.

...just three weeks before George Bush left office, the Bush Administration’s Energy Department credit committee unanimously rejected a loan commitment to Solyndra....

 So what changed?
