    It is clear that solar within the United states HAS FAILED. Any more loans being made by our government should be looked in to by congress and if a "crime" has been caused then who ever that has caused it needs to be made to step down.

    Obama is just blowing money up a rat hole now...

    Obama was very quick to establish a moritorium with the gulf oil spill, putting a freeze on any more production before an investigation could be completed. Where was the investigation into Solyndra before more government money was wasted away? Obama didn't care about what happened in the gulf, if he did he wouldn't have sat on his ass and refused assistance from other nations with a desire to help (who gives a crap if they weren't "union" workers). This hypocracy between clean energy and oil is soley based on ideology. Looking at the the cost behind these investments, as well as the government creation of the expensive Chevy Volt during a economic recession, shows why government has no place in creating jobs. It's about time we as a nation push Congress to cut up the Democrats "credit card".

    These idiots do not care that they are wasting billions of our hard earned dollars.

    I heard this story earlier this week and was flabbergasted. Chue, the head of DOE just threw the money out the door because the deadline was approaching.

    Saw a show on solar the other day. These guys are doing well in the private sector and don't need taxpayer dollars for anything.

    This is what happens when an ideolouge cares more about his bs green agenda than he does about wasting money.

    Chu is another idiot trying to shove his bs agenda down our throats.
