Quote of the Day – Mitt Romney Edition Part 4
“I also note how damaging a decision like this is for free enterprise generally, what you’re saying to other inventors, to other entrepreneurs, particularly in the solar space, is that the best way to get ahead is not with the best ideas and the best technology and the best people and the best marketing, but instead with the best lobbyists. That is not the nature of how America works.”
Mitt Romney standing in front of Solyrndra today.
You remember Solyrndra don’t you? That is the company that filed bankruptcy after receiving a half billion dollars of tax money. The Bush administration stopped the loan, but the Obama administration pushed forward with it even though all the evidence was there that the company was not stable.
Half billion here, half billion there. Sooner or later you are talking real money.
Romney is doing a better job than I thought he would. He is getting good advice and he is following it. He just may pull this out yet.
