    Did the program that funded the Solyndra loan start under George W. Bush?
    David Plouffe says so

    Our ruling

    Plouffe said that the loan guarantee program that awarded half a billion dollars in guarantees to Solyndra "was supported by President Bush." The program was created on Bush's watch by a law he signed and promoted. The program grew under the Obama administration, which ultimately awarded Solyndra's loan guarantee under a new section of the law created by the stimulus. The Bush administration, though, promoted the loan guarantee program, and Bush himself touted it on his way out of office. There's also evidence his administration specifically prioritized Solyndra's project. We find Plouffe's statement Mostly True.

    Are you kidding?

    Yes the "program" started under Bush...and yes...Bush supported the "program" but the Solyndra loan was put on a shelf by the Bush Administration because the numbers looked so bad.

    Look, I know that you progressives would LOVE to make Solyndra a "W" thing just like you'd LOVE to make Fast & Furious a "W" thing but the fact is BOTH of those debacles belong solely to THIS Adminstration. Pathetic attempts like this one to spin it to be someone else's fault rather than Barry's show just how far some of you will go to excuse his screw ups.

    You lefties must be desperate to come up with this kind of convoluted logic. Yeah, Bush signed on to green energy but it was Barry Hussein who gave Solyndra taxpayer funding against the advice of experts and even when he knew the company was in trouble. Solyndra was a big dnoer to his campaign.

    Yup. Bush's boys had the smarts to kick Solyndra to the curb.

    Barrys boys embraced it because its GREEN ENERGY. Fucking idiots.

    The taxpayers are behind the investors on this one so we can kiss out half billion goodbye.

    Oh Yeah. Barry and his boys are first rate investors. NOT.

    I hate to dissapoint but I don't think I've ever listened to Rush Limbaugh on the radio...have seen very little of him on TV...and in all honesty get most of what he supposedly says from you progressives who seem to be glued to his every word.

    So did you want to help out Lil Ole Lady and back up her claim that Solyndra was really a Bush thing? Or did you want to run off and hide after making what you must think was a "biting" comment?

    It's a damn shame that liberals can't think anymore.
