From Your Pocket to Obozo's Pals: "Energy" Guarantees

A longer list, with names:

Solyndra, which received $535 million in loan guarantees and whose chief investor was the George Kaiser Family Foundation. George Kaiser was an Obama campaign bundler. 

-- Brightsource Energy, which received $1.6 billion and whose senior adviser is Robert Kennedy, Jr., an early Obama backer;

-- Solar Reserve, which got a $737 million loan, and whose major investor is a company run by Michael Froman, who was a deputy assistant to the president. Froman bundled up to $500,000 for the president's 2008 campaign; 

-- Granite Reliable Wind Generation, which received a $168.9 million loan. The company's majority owner is a firm formerly led by Nancy Ann DeParle, now a White House deputy chief of staff and former head of the president's health care communications team during the reform debate; and 

-- Abound Solar, which received a loan guarantee worth $400 million. A key investor is billionaire heiress Pat Stryker, who gave $87,000 to Obama's inauguration committee, and hundreds of thousands more to Democratic causes.

Same gig as the public-employee unions; it's basically recycling of campaign cash.

Especially cute when Warren Buffett gains $50 million from his ........ahhhh........"enlightened" bank-stock purchases and then opines that other citizens should pay more in taxes

There are a couple of words for Buffett, the last of which is "you!!!"
