J’accuse! Whatever.

Mitt Romney said this yesterday, apparently about Solyndra:

“an independent inspector general looked at this investment and concluded that the administration had steered money to friends and family, to campaign contributors.”

Here’s what the Deptartment of  Energy’s independent inspector general, Gregory Friedman actually said:

“We currently have 64 open investigations associated with the Recovery Act, nearly 25 percent of our current case load. Schemes under investigation include the submission of false information in applications for funding, fraudulent claims for rebates, claims for unallowable or unauthorized expenses, the directing of contracts and grants to friends and family, weatherization fraud to include mischarging, and other attempts to fraudulently obtain Recovery Act funds.”

CONCLUDE: To make a final judgment or determination

INVESTIGATE: To observe or inquire into

So there we are. Guilty until proven innocent. The American way. Any questions?

LET ME ADD: The Obama Bain ad was just as bad. But I like Obama, so there!

We absolutely cannot subsidize energy developement because that would be Kenyan communism – unless it’s fossil fuel or nuclear

It’s remarkable my country could afford to do this after the $500 million in loan guarantees to Solyndra, because I thought – besides being !European!Socialism! –  it busted us. FOX News told me so.

The Obama administration has offered the Vogtle project $8.3 billion in federal loan guarantees as part of its pledge to expand nuclear power.
