President Obama rubbed elbows Monday night with two men at the center of the Solyndra loan scandal at an exclusive fundraiser in California.
Steve Westly, a financier whose money-raising prowess helped to snag him a post on the administration’s energy advisory board, and Matt Rogers, a former Energy Department senior adviser who helped to approve the Solyndra loan, were spotted by reporters at the $35,800-per-person fundraiser for the president’s re-election campaign.But the Republicans are the ones in bed with big business. It's great to see that Obama is really changing the tone in Washington, isn't it? I mean, at least before with George Bush and ZOMG EVIL HALLIBURTON!!!1111 they were providing a service in exchange for our tax dollars. In the new Obama way of doing things, we shovel millions of dollars at these companies, they promise rainbows and unicorn farts, and then quietly close up shop.
Oh, and a side note: $35,800 per person fundraiser? That's so much better than the Romney fundraiser that was called "shameful" - at $50K. That $14,200 makes all the difference, you know... For those keeping score at home, private businessmen holding a $50K/plate fundraiser is something to be ashamed of, whereas a fundraiser attended by administration flunkies who fleeced the American people for millions is hunky-dory.
Yeah, that's the kind of hopenchange we need...
That is all.
