Just a day after President Barack Obama insisted that green grants were given out by Department of Energy and weren’t political, leaked emails prove White House cronyism.
Kelly Maher at Revealing Politics reported:

Complete Colorado reported:

Recent remarks by President Obama to a Denver-based TV anchor stand in stark contrast to new emails obtained by CompleteColorado.com.

This past Friday, President Obama told KUSA’s Kyle Clark, in response to a question on the federally-backed but failed Colorado company Abound Solar, “And these are decisions, by the way, that are made by the Department of Energy (DOE), they have nothing to do with politics.”

And just one year ago, White House advisor David Plouffe had this exchangewith NBC’s David Gregory regarding the politcal questions surrounding many of the DOE-backed projects:

DAVID GREGORY:
Were campaign contributors involved here in terms of their projects that ultimately forced the government’s hand?

DAVID PLOUFFE:
Absolutely not. These decisions about the loan program were made by career officials in the Department of Energy on the merits.

CompleteColorado.com has obtained emails that seem to directly contradict Plouffe’s answer, and also challenge the President’s notion that the DOE’s loan decisions were universally autonomous within the agency. The emails also lend even more credence to the theory that the loan to Abound Solar was political payback to Colorado’s wealthy Democratic benefactor and Gang-of-Four member, Pat Stryker.

    Washington Post Endorses, Criticizes Obama

    [The Post cited some of these failures:

    He did not end, as he promised he would, “our chronic
    avoidance of tough decisions” on fiscal matters.

    "We were disappointed that Mr. Obama allowed the bipartisan
    recommendations of his fiscal commission to wither and die and
    that he and Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) failed to seal a
    fiscal deal in the summer of 2011."

    "Mr. Obama alienated Congress and business leaders by isolating
    himself inside a tight White House circle that manages to be both
    arrogant and thin-skinned. Too often his administration treats
    business as an obstacle rather than a partner."

    He hardly tried to achieve the immigration
    reform and climate-change policy he promised.

    In reviewing his foreign policy record, the Post said Obama "was
    hesitant and inconstent in responding to the two greatest and
    most unexpected foreign-policy opportunities of his presidency:
    the pro-democracy uprising in Iran in 2009 and the Arab Spring
    two years later."

    "Mr. Obama kept the United States on the sidelines as Syria plunged
    into civil war, costing more than 30,000 lives — most of them civilians
    - and breeding extremism that may destabilize a half-dozen countries."

    "By not securing a presence in Iraq after ending the U.S. military
    mission, he failed to capitalize on America’s decade-long commitment
    to that nation, and his ambivalence regarding Afghanistan - sending
    more troops, but with artificial deadlines and no clear commitment to
    their success — promises trouble in coming years."]

  2. Romney is the Good Cop with a positive vision for the future. Others (the bad cops) are digging up all the corruption and that’s as it should be. If we would had had a geniune media in the last 4 years instead of glorified Lib typists we might have known the specifics about what Obama was up to. You could almost forgive the media for being so one sided except for the fact that they were aware of the filthy underbelly of this administration and did nothing. Doesn’t that make them accomplices?

    Now we are poorer but hopefully wiser as we make Obama a one term President — and try to bring this divided nation together again.

    I am hearing from everyone I know that Obama will cheat his way back in. Now wouldn’t we be totally stupid if we allowed this to happen to us again? Screw the UN inspectors we can handle our own elections.

  3. This can only “STUN”
    those who were not watching Glenn Beck several years ago with stuff related to his “Crimes, Inc” sotries about Obama’s financial connections to Joyce Foundation, Chicago Climate Exchange, Chicago Annenberg Foundation, Shore National Bank, Energy Efficiency Fund, Energy Efficiency Bank, Joel Rogers, Maurice Strong, Van Jones, Bill and John Ayers, Algore, Bill Clinton, Hillary’s college roommate, Franklin Raines, BANK OF AMERICA, G.E. Goldman Sachs, Apollo Foundation, SEIU, ACORN, TIDES Foundation, International Micro Finance – that his mother worked for the International Monetary Fund that Timothy Geithner’s father was a top-ranked Leader of, and she was working directly under him, and gee – have not even mentioned George Soros, yet.

    IN OTHER WORDS – ALL his pushing of Stimulus money to ANY Green Energy enteprise is INSIDER TRADING and nothing LESS – it’s EMBEZZLEMENT that has NOTHING to do with Capitalism. It is FEUDALISM – paying the TROOPS!.

  4. For Obama, his crew and the Democrats it’s basically a organized crime operation, only better, they have media backing and millions of dopes to support them. Forget it if this mob is returned to office, it will make the previous four years look like a bake sale.

  5. Agree with all of you. . .
    But what strikes me the most is that our so-called Journalists, especially David Gregory,
    are so in the tank for Obama and leftist elitist ideology
    that they are willing to turn their back on their professional journalistic integrity
    as well as their fellow American Citizens to allow this theft and scam to go on. . .

    Thank GOD for conservative bloggers. . keep up the good work and do the job the MSM refuses to do.

  6. An “etiquette” question: When an OBOZO crony ecofascist crook gets a taxpayer-funded “green” loan/guarantee, what’s the appropriate amount of the loan/guarantee they should “tip” to the OBOZO re-election campaign before declaring bankruptcy – 15%, 20%, 25%…?

  7. OT repeat with correct link (sorry!):

    GENERAL HAM RELIEVED OF DUTY FOR REFUSING TO “STAND DOWN” ?? http://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/p/37144547/Interesting-Rumor-Concerning-General-Carter-Ham-and-Stand-Down-Order.aspx

  8. #27 MicahStone — my guess would be 50% is the “tip” going back to Obama. The other 50% goes into an account in the Caymans belonging to the Obama crony at the company. The amount actually going into the green company — zero.

    Obama Years Ago Helped Fund Carbon Program
    He Is Now Pushing Through Congress

    [In 2000 and 2001, while Barack Obama served as a board member for a Chicago-based charitable foundation, he helped to fund a pioneering carbon trading exchange that is likely to fill a critical role in the controversial cap-and-trade carbon reduction scheme that President Obama is now trying to push rapidly through Congress.

    During those two years, the Joyce Foundation gave nearly $1.1 million in two separate grants that were instrumental in developing and launching the privately-owned Chicago Climate Exchange, which now calls itself "North America's only cap and trade system for all six greenhouse gases, with global affiliates and projects worldwide."]

    Obama, Maurice Strong, Al Gore

    [In 1997, Strong went on to accept from Tongsun Park, who was found guilty of illegally acting as an Iraqi agent, $1 million from Saddam Hussein, which was invested in Cordex Petroleum Inc., a company he owned with his son, Fred.

    [..]

    It may be interesting to note that the Chicago Climate Exchange in spite of its hype, is a veritable rat’s nest of cronyism. The largest shareholder in the Exchange is Goldman Sachs. Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley is its honorary chairman, The Joyce Foundation, which funded the Exchange also funded money for John Ayers’ Chicago School Initiatives. John is the brother of William Ayers.]

    Green Energy Is Really All About Social Justice

    “I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical,
    communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to
    be a part of.’ I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot
    of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary. I was a
    rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on
    April 29th. By August, I was a communist.”
    ~ Van Jones
