    So you think they will post that on the internet and say "hey look at us, we're ripping off the taxpayers"? Really? I really don't want your swamp land, sorry you got taken in.

    While from Solyndra's Perspective, there is a very good reason why they might have wanted to subordinate the government interest. Why on Earth would Chu do it?

    Dems were fine with Clinton having an affair.

    That's a silly generalization.

    Some were fine with it. Some thought it was awful, but disagreed about what should be done about it.

    On the other hand, most Republicans were outraged about Clinton having an affair. So I can just as easily turn that on you and ask you why they tolerate Gingrich now.

    Back and forth we go.

    Fine? I wouldn't exactly say that. However, there is a difference. Neither Clinton nor democrats run around being hypocrital about affairs and wrongly asserting what family values really are. Newt threw a lot of stones, and republicans maintain more than anyone that these things matter. I have to accept that if this is a republcian or conservative value, then it matters. If it isn't, they shoudl stop spouting it as one so much. Am I wrong about that?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Whoa. Clinton LIED about his affair(s), and still does.

    Not buying the "Newt threw a lot of stones" crap either. Newt feels that family values are important. So does Clinton. That they themselves have sinned is not uncommon. What is absurd is the continued double standard of the left, such as you illustrate.

    So it's perfectly fine to cheat on your wife as long as you don't lie about it?

    (What about lying to your wife?)

    You STILL haven't answered the simple questions: are cheating and lying wrong? And I know why you are afraid to answer.

    The difference is that Newt bashes others for sinning. He should STFU about it, dont' you think?

    Yes, Clinton lied. And as Dole voter, I don't approve. But frankly, if you don't know Newt threw stones, you either have no knowledge of newt, or your memory is selective.

    You continue with, the Newt bashing and Newt will continue with, the bit of wine, women and song.

    Don't bother me and I'm as sure as hell....it won't bother Newt

    Where the beer flows like wine and the women flock...well you get the idea

    You're making about as much sense today as you usually do.

    Hmm, well I guess I'm not too convinced by the argument that it might have been improper ... but there's no evidence to that effect.

    Why might Chu have agreed to it? The purpose of the loan guarantee was to spur Solyndra's business. One way to do that is to make them more attractive to private investment.
