    (His performance should be highlighted on the TV Program "DWTS", properly titled as "Sidesteppin".)

    "Energy Secretary Steven Chu to take the fall for Solyndra.

    Posted by Moe Lane (Diary)

    Thursday, November 17th at 9:45AM EST
    Secretary Chu will take “full responsibility” today for the government’s decision to throw a half-billion’s worth of taxpayer money into a failing energy company, despite its own watchdogs’ recommendations (and the government’s decision to pressure Solyndra into not reporting layoffs until after the ’10 midterms) – while at the same time insisting that nothing untoward occurred. In other words, Chu will not take any kind of responsibility at all.

    But this is not about ‘responsibility.’ This is merely the next step in the resignation game. Chu will be grilled today on this topic:


    In advance of Thursday’s hearing, investigators with the Republican led committee released the latest batch of internal emails it has reviewed. Among them were emails that suggested that Energy officials asked the company to delay layoffs at its California facility until after the Nov. 2 midterm elections.

    The two congressmen leading the investigation, Reps. Fred Upton (Mich.) and Cliff Stearns (Fla.) released a statement saying they hope Chu’s testimony will “shed light on key questions about the decision-making inside the Department of Energy and the role of other agencies and officials, from the Office of Management and Budget to the west wing of the White House.”

    Secretary Chu will then be expected to beat his breast a bit. Then the President will express his ‘full confidence’ in his ‘embattled’ Secretary, which will be the signal for Republicans to release still more damaging revelations on the subject. Shortly thereafter, Chu will announce his resignation, in order to ‘spend more time with his family.’ End result: one Energy Secretary gone and a ‘tarnished’ administration."

    Doesn't matter how many fall on their swords over this debacle. Barry's still the guy who's been beating the green jobs drum since day one, visited the place in his cheerleader outfit, etc. And it will all be replayed for the taxpaying voters in the current TV ad and others likely to follow between now and the election. Billions of tax dollars down the drain via Obama's campaign cronies. My that's a catchy tune for voters to dance to.

    uhmmm, not so fast, I want to know who from the WH oked the call to Solynrda asking them to NOT announce their lay off untill the elections were over.

    And, who OKed the reversal of the typical government agreement, that the gov. is the FIRST paid with auction and bankruptcy proceeds NOT, the hedge fund and money guys, that is not doable by the DOE even if they wanted to.

    Chu doesn't give a shit about politics granted, which is exactly why thats not his bucket of shit to carry, its Carol Browners and............ :eusa_whistle:

    The ending comments about Secretary Chu's performance: high degree of "mismanagement and ineptitude." Nobama did throw him under the bus and Chu finished the job by diving under it.

    "Dancing with the White House" could be the next reality show.

    I want to know when the indictments will be handed down from the DOJ for breaking the law with regard to putting the private investors (Obama's buddies) ahead of the taxpayers.
