    They can't do it. I love how easy it is for them to apologize for this prick.
    And I'm waiting for a liberal to get a clue about how business works.

    Did you read the circumstances of when he "went back for more" ? He did it with all the finances out in the open. He did it after letting the state know, to include having to defer loan payments, that they were in trouble. The state decided to cut its losses, which was probably their first good decision.

    Do you see now ?
    Are you suggesting this is a revelation? Really? So Schilling, a self proclaimed conservative, takes a company oozing money and asks the state for more money to help them. And you have no problem with the hypocrisy of that?

    Of course not.

    I can only imagine how you'd react is Obama had done such a thing.

    Apparently plenty of conservatives are having trouble with that as well.

    Especially one named Schilling.

    Having heard Schilling's politics before on the radio, I do find it amusing and ironic that he went to a state for a loan.

    LOL .... the problem is if and when government does not practice due diligence. We have governors all over, GOP and Dem, who make loans and give tax credits, sometimes hundreds of millions to one company, in order to get them to locate within their state. This concept is beyond the liberal mind in this thread, it would seem.

    Even with Solyndra, the problem is not Solyndra seeking the loan. Its government awarding it without proper prudence.

    If Solyndra, or 38 Studios, are shown to have commited fraud, or even been irresponsible, then let them reap the legal ramifications, and scorn. There is no evidence of Schilling, or 38 Studios, doing anything except failing at business.

    Its the Government. To his credit, up in RI, it seems Chaffee was against all things 38 Studios. Seems the loan was from the prior Administration, and Chaffee was against it then.

    Just because someone is against certain economic policies, doesn't mean they won't drink from the cow when the milk is free. It is ridiculous to think that he wouldn't take advantage of the money the state had gave him. You are saying he shouldn't have accepted money from the state, even though it would have made his company less competitive (if that was possible) just because of his stance? No business minded person would do that.

    It is a good business decision, but given how he views things is why it makes it so funny.

    Why is Schilling a hypocrite? What you and others like you expect is for people like Schilling to pay taxes and fund the government loan systems and then NOT take advantage of those programs their tax dollars are funding. Its the same idiocy you espouse when saying conservative governors should oppose programs like the stimulus which their citizens PAY for, and then not lobby for a cut. The reality is that they ARE paying for those programs. Now...if you want to create an opt out system where people dont HAVE to pay taxes for those programs...NOW we have a winner. Personally...I COMPLETELY AGREE...Schilling...but also NO ONE ELSE should have access to those loan programs because the government shouldnt be DOING IT. But as long AS they do and as long as people have no choice in whether or not they pay taxes for those programs then they would be foolish to NOT take advantage of them.

    So...do we agree the government should STOP altogether offering those programs? Cuz...if so...then you and I may actually have finally found common ground. But if you maintain this idiotic notion that EVERYONE should pay taxes that support those programs but only liberals should exploit them...well...no...idiotic ideas are idiotic.

    And BTW...here we have Schilling...a fairly wealthy individual that is not only taking out loans but also putting his own skin into the game to the tune of some 50+ million and at least TRYING to create a successful business venture which employed several hundred people...

    and what are YOU bringing to the table, other than your hatred and loathing of an individual based on his political positions?

    Which requires liberals to deliberately distort, if not re-fabricate, the Conservative positions on State Governments, tax credits, and similar tools used to attract business.

    Once again, liberals invent a strawman.
