Case in point:
House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa and his crack team of witch hunters spent over a year inspecting every last crumb of Solyndra, and in the end they found nothing incriminating or implicating the Obama Administration.
One reason for that may be that the energy program that spawned the government loan to Solyndra was initiated by George W. Bush in 2005. And I know it’s a common belief that President Obama has in his possession a time machine used to place an announcement of his birth in Hawaiian newspapers 50 years ago, but are we to believe he also used it to jump-start his socialist clean-energy takeover in 2005?
The dead horse has already been adequately beaten by North Carolina pastors’ standards, but Team Romney arranged this “secret” press conference today outside the former offices of Solyndra.
Mitt Romney’s campaign justified its secrecy in setting up a press conference in front of Solyndra’s California headquarters on Thursday by warning of a conspiracy by White House officials to potentially sabotage their efforts.
“We knew, if word got out, that Solyndra would do everything in their power, and the Obama administration would do everything in their power, to stop us from having this news conference,”an unnamed adviser told reporters, per CNN.
Solyndra went out of business. They don’t have the power to do anything. Neither does the president have the power to deny Mitt Romney the right to hold an embarrassingly-immature, sham press conference wherein he will be serving up Nothingburgers to an anxious press corps.
And even if they did, 99.9 percent of Americans both have no idea who is, and do not give a shit about, Solyndra. I can’t imagine why they would even be bothered.
