GOP Lawmaker Accidentally Reveals Truth Behind Solyndra Investigation

WASHINGTON -- After months of investigations into Solyndra and other Department of Energy loans failed to produce a smoking gun, one Republican lawmaker let slip why House Republicans have kept up the charge.

In an interview following yet another hearing in which Energy Secretary Steven Chu testified about the Department's loan guarantee program, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) conceded that Republicans' ongoing probes of the program -- from which the bankrupt California-based solar company Solyndra and others benefited -- are largely a play to win votes in November.

"Our staff will continue to dig into it and see," Jordan told Energy and Environment Daily. "But what I hope happens is we stop doing these kind of things ... this whole cronyism approach to the marketplace.

"Ultimately, we'll stop it on Election Day, hopefully. And bringing attention to these things helps the voters and citizens of the country make the kind of decision that I hope helps them as they evaluate who they are going to vote for in November."

1. Liberals/Dems should use "Abra Cadabra" and "Hocus Pocus" after a Repug/Teabagger uses their magic

words, like Solyndra, Soros, socialist, Ayers, and the like ...

2. Everyday the superpacs are bombarding the airwaves with anti-Obama messages. The worst is to repeal

HCR, of corse they refer to it as " Obmacare " and "socialism"

I am so frickn tired of the constant hate speech, distortions, and misrepresentations constantly polluting the airwaves

The republican party has succeeded in becoming the anti-women, anti-civil rights, anti-labor party of America, and the constant lies being propagated by a complicit media gives great concern how much the populous can separate fact from fiction
