In response to ComingLiberalCrackup's comment:
You would think after the massive corruption and failure of Solyndra and other crooked green tech grants, Obama's cronies would lay low. Think again.
$34 million in grants just pushed out to 'green energy' cronies by the Obama Department of Energy.
$9.5 million targeted to 'venture capital firms' run by one Vinod Kholsa. $4 million to help his company purchase the assets of a defunct "Range Fuels". Obama's Dept of Energy previously lost $80 million in taxpayer money "investing" in Range Fuels.
What a coincidence! Mr Kholsa recently held a fundraiser for Democratic Senatorial canidates at his California mansion. Price of admission: $32,400. President Obama flew out to California to attend in person (burning much carbon, no doubt)! Many Democrat Senators also flew in.
A few days after getting the grant, his company hired Jim Messina to his Board of Directors.
Messina knows nothing about 'green energy' , but as head of Obama's "Organizing for America" Messina is Obama's bag man, and knows about 'green bribery'.
The Energy Dept keeps big dollar grants going, not to ambitious start ups , but to the same group of politically connected firms...
In this article from the WSJ, what are the big news items?
That presidents have fundraisers?
That if a fundraiser is in Cal. a president would fly to it...versus driving to it?
That a former member of OAA was appointed to a seat on the board of directors for a green energy company?
That a president of the U.S. is actively pursuing green energy? Oh wait. That is different in the political realm. That is news.
