    38 was his business and he was part of the money.

    Schilling founded the company and was an active part of the company, mostly on the financial side.

    You are also confusing the point. If you want to compare Schilling to someone, its not to Obama. Compare Schilling to the folks behind Solyndra.

    If you take issue with criticisms of the Obama Administration over Solyndra, then compare that to criticisms of RI.

    But the parallel is not Schilling to Obama. Hardly.
    How did Obama get into this? I certainly was not trying to compare Schilling to Obama, I was trying to compare governments using tax dollars to provide incentives for business. In that case, there really isn't too much of a difference.... if you are outraged at government money underwriting Solyndra, then you should be outraged about government money underwriting 38 Special, or whatever they call themselves....

    Personally, I understand the reasons for each transaction.... Solyndra probably had a broader, long-term strategic purpose, where 38 was more about a few jobs, but either way, I understand why governments want to do this, and in many cases, should do this..... but it is corporate welfare.

    It is a kneejerk reaction among some. No matter what the topic, they point to something Obama has done, no matter how dissimilar. It is known as ODS.

    You attempted to compare criticisms of Solyndra with criticisms for 38. They are different in many ways, as I pointed out. Obama's affiliation with Solyndra, to include visiting the place in-person and calling it "the future", combined with the investors there being bigtime donors, makes Obama very culpable with Solyndra.

    Regardless, you brought up Solyndra. If you can't handle Obama being mentioned with Solyndra, get out of the kitchen.

    Nope. Its just that some liberals can't handle the truth, in that Obama and his Administration were grossly inept with Solyndra, and are desperate for any scenaio that might mitigate such.

    Solyndra is still an anchor around the jackasses neck. He put it there. He's gonna wear it until the election.

    Conservatives can't even get through a thread about Curt Schilling without bashing Obama. And you wonder why you don't get taken seriously?

    Oddly, I was the one who linked to a fairly unbiased and balanced report on this story. I am also the one not playing politics with it. And I am the one not bringing unrelated stuff into it. You on the other hand...

    Oddly .... see my post #16, long before you joined the thread, where I "linked to a fairly unbiased and balanced report on this story". And as the OP is not mine, and apparently you did not read it, let me show you here how politics and tone were set:

    And then there's the ginormous asshole hypocrite Curt Schilling. How ironic that we went to the government to bail his sleazy ass out. Not once, but three times no less. I seem to recall him being an ardent conservative who preached doing things for one's self and not being reliant on the government dole.

    Do as I say, but not as I do.

    Massively is not what I would call unbiased, though they are apolitical. You did bring in unrelated stuff into the thread. I am sorry you have ODS, but it is up to you to find a cure.
