    It was a mistake but it wasn't as big of an impact as other recent events like the credit downgrade.

    And another one...The Obama Administration is giving $737 million to a Tonopah Solar, a subsidiary of California-based SolarReserve. PCG is an investment partner with SolarReserve. Nancy Pelosi’s brother-in-law happens to be the number two man at PCG.

    It is surprising that the downgrade wasn't done earlier and by all credit rating companies. We now know why the others held back.

    The United States, at $15 trillion in debt, is simply not an AAA economy. Now the White House is showing what happens if you dare try and cross them by holding a revenge investigation by the SEC on S&P. They will do whatever it takes to silence any critics.

    This is the most corrupt White House in the past 100 years, probably more and perhaps ever.

    Was it a AAA economy at $10.5 trillion in debt?

    Energy Secretary Steven Chu acknowledged Thursday making the final decision to allow a struggling solar company to continue receiving taxpayer money after it had technically defaulted on a $535 million federal loan guaranteed by his agency.

    Not that it would be a bad thing for him to take the fall.

    I guess losing a half billion wasn't enough, you might as well shoot the entire wad.

    The U.S. Department of Energy said it plans to push ahead with as much as $5.3 billion in potential additional alternative energy loans by Friday, despite Republican complaints the money is going out too quickly to untested firms.

    No, i don't think so. It was obvious then the direction that was being taken. And although Obama promised to change that direction no one should have taken him seriously.

    Certainly. And all those billions of dollars in the previous "stimulus"? Where did that all go?

    It's as though money is just being shoveled into the back of a long line of trucks going to special interests and Friends Of Obama. That's the only shovel ready jobs there ever were.
