China is attacking our industry and attempting to kill our future job prospects and you are turning against your own. Pathetic. You can't pass up a cheap shot on the president, can you? Yes, really fucking pathetic.
I see...we should only "get mad" at China when it benefits you politically. Got it. The fact is that Obama is blamed not for investing in solar, but for making foolish and politically-motivated
investments with tax dollars.

Of course we should be mad....it makes Obama look bad! Damn those Chinese! Even Obama says so:
Obviously, we wish Solyndra hadnt gone bankrupt. Part of the reason they did was because the Chinese were subsidizing their solar industry and flooding the market in ways that Solyndra couldnt compete. But understand, this was not our program per se.
Of course not. Because NOTHING is Obama's responsibility except for the two times per day his clock is right...then he's a genius.
