OK, while the GOP is attacking Obama on Solyndra, this is the THIRD green energy company backed by Mitt Romney that has gone belly up. But 'ya know what? I'm not going to attack Mitt on this. Why? Because green energy is the wave of the future, and yes, some investments in green energy will flop, despite our best efforts to get them off the ground, but it is the overall direction that counts.A Massachusetts solar company to which Mitt Romney personally delivered a $1.5 million loan when he was governor has gone belly up, leaving him vulnerable to the same "picking winners and losers" charges that he's been lobbing at President Barack Obama over Solyndra.
The president's reelection campaign wasted no time noting Romney's support for Lowell-based Konarka Technologies, which announced Friday it had filed for bankruptcy protection with plans to lay off more than 80 workers and liquidate its assets.
So, keep attacking Obama over his funding of green energy. I won't do the same with Mitt Romney. Why? Because I will ALWAYS put America first.
To Mitt: Yes, you've had a few bumps on the road to green energy, Mitt, but overall you have done well to push green energy, and help wean us off Middle Eastern oil. I might critisize you for a lot of things, but I will give credit where credit is due. Well done, Governor.
And to the Dems - You are no different than the Obama attackers. Shame on you, hypocrites.
