    happened with Solyndra. Unfortunately, that may be difficult to explain. However, the Solyndra deal began during Bush.

      I'll agree with ya on the difference betweeen Solyndra and Bain.

      But, the public knows that getting bin Laden began during Bush so Obama taking credit for it now and then not taking the lumps for going forward with Solyndra and the ultimate failure there is something that same public isn't going to buy.

      Can't have it one way and not the other, so to speak.

    •  Big differences. (0+ / 0-)

      Bain is about making a profit by destroying, downsizing, and moving production offshore, sailing on the full 'race to the bottom trend.   Move fast, and break things.

      Solyndra was an attempt to build clean jobs for the benefit of Americans with a new innovative product.  Swimming against the tide.

      Had the Chinese not been dumping solar products in the US (a matter of international litigation now) and the US really supported solar job growth here,  Solyndra would still be in business.
