    Obama and Biden are crooks and have been caught redhanded laundering campaign money through the corrupt company Solyndra.

    First, we have Obama's fund raiser Steve Spinner, whose wife represented Solyndra pressing the Department of Energy to make the loan guarantee, "I have OVP [the Office of the Vice President] and WH [the White House] breathing down my neck on this."

    Then, we have Tom Carnahan, owner of the Wind Capital Group, and son of the woman who stole a Senate seat from Ashcroft, hosting a fund raiser for Obama after benefitting from the loan.

    Well that's the meme anyway.

    The joint strike fighter with over 120 Billion in cost overruns and 300 billion total tax payer bill yet nothing to show for it..completely goes WHOOOSSHH..over the heads of "fiscal" conservatives.

    Ah..so it's not the spending that the issue.

    It's WHO is doing the spending.

    As I've always suspected.

    Bravo. :clap:

    Big difference between the constitutional act of of defense of this country and funding a third rate "energy" corporation that was about ready to tip over. The first is the main job of the federal government, but the other is pure idiocy.

    I'm not sure what you mean by money laundering. The only connection to campaign cash that I can see is that Solyndra part-owner George Kaiser was an Obama campaign cash bundler. But there's no evidence in the public record that the Obama campaigns have laundered any campaign cash, through Solyndra or otherwise.

    What I really want to say though is that Halliburton and Watergate simply aren't comparable scandals. Offering sweetheart deals to political cronies (as occurred for Halliburton and Solyndra) is simply not comparable to the gross criminality of Watergate.

    Show me in the constitution where it specifies that you can give tax payer dollars to a private company to produce a plane.

    Or even authorizes an air force.

    A fighter/bomber is not a defensive weapon system.

    These clowns applauded Bush when he shipped tax payer dollars on WOODEN PALLETS to Iraq. No accountability whatsoever. They LOST billions.

    And they are trying to drum up a scandal here?

    Laughable to say the least.

    i'll direct your attention to the general welfare and commerce clauses of the constitution. those give government broad latitude in the actions in which it can engage for the benefit of the populace. you might want to read a case or two. it could help you.

    you just don't like the second... but that isn't the constitutional standard.

    thank heaven.
