    Gee! Who would have thought that anything that the rats endorse and push would end up being investigated for waste, fraud and abuse?

    Just business as usual for the donkey party.

    Panel: Green jobs company endorsed by Obama and Biden squandered $535 million in stimulus money

    535 million and they still can't make a profit. Wonder when they'll move to China?

    Solar only produces .1% of our energy needs.

    BOSTON (AP) -- A solar panel manufacturer that benefited from $58 million in state aid to open a factory at a former Massachusetts military base is closing the plant and laying off 800 workers.

    Evergreen Solar Inc. announced Tuesday it is shutting down the Devens plant by the end of the 2011 first quarter.

    Solar power plants are inefficient and cannot survive on their own. Instead, they survive by money from taxpayers Eventually, reality catches up to fantasy, and they close. Solar stocks are losers in the stock market...the harsh reality rather than fantasy.

    Geesh... 'Solyndra'

    Remind anybody of an old movie? Seems to fit right in with the Obama agenda... all the ones going thru the processor are republicans.

    This year at the same time, you'll be standing in an empty building. What a Maroon. Could he have been MORE wrong? "Yes we can" fix this in 2012.

    Hope somebody's putting together a book of Obama's failed stimulus projects. This stuff is just too unbelievable to forget.

    Well that's exactly what grants are put in place for ...fraud and abuse.
    Just like planned parenthood billions of dollars missing.

    This should surprise no one.

    Did they? Did they squander it? According to your article they got loan guarantees, not grants.

    Solyndra also predates the current president.

    So I am going to take a wait and see on this one.

    The loans are guaranteed by the feds. Make no mistake, I realize that.

    Sometimes I think we're just numb to how much has already gone wrong. Every single day seems to bring on a new fail. It's hard to keep up.

    More than likely! Obama will be called to account for this.

    I'm sure they will use the money we gave them to set up shop there.

    Just go to the stimulus watch website. The "weatherization" projects are full of fraud.
