You seriously can't be defending George W? Without a doubt he is was the worst president in modern times. His brother can't run fast enough from W's record as President.
Bet you didn't know:
"According to a new report by Cloud Market, Ubuntu is more than twice as popular on Amazon EC2 as all other operating systems combined. Given that Amazon Web Services has 57% of the public cloud market, Ubuntu is clearly the most popular OS for cloud systems. This is further bolstered by a recent OpenStack survey, which found that more than half of respondents used Ubuntu for cloud-based production environments. Centos was a distant second at 29%, and RHEL came in third at 11%. "In addition to AWS, Ubuntu has been available on HP Cloud, and Microsoft Azure since 2013. It's also now available on Google Cloud Platform, Fujitsu, and Joyent." The article concludes, "People still see Ubuntu as primarily a desktop operating system. It's not — and hasn't been for some time."
so, the i.t.c. lets msft off the hook and now they have a claim against idcc for failure to offer f.r.a.n.d. patent licenses at a reasonable rate!
"U.S. Int'l Trade Commission clears Microsoft of patent infringement"
"NEW YORK, Aug 28 (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp avoided a potentially costly setback to its financially-troubled mobile phone business on Friday as the U.S. International Trade Commission declined to block the import of its devices in a longstanding patent dispute.
The decision rejected a ruling in April by a U.S. trade judge who found that Microsoft had infringed two InterDigital Inc wireless patents, and recommended an import ban."
so it looks like they did the right thing, whether that was by appealing the previous judges ruling, filing the new suit or just moving forward.
and, awwwwww! it's too late to sell short now:

Spreading the “wealth” to workers is how one stimulate the economy. Give back $10,000 in taxes to Bill Gates the money may never see the light of day again. cut $100 in taxes to 100 blue collar workers and it is spent by the end of the month. In theory it is trickle down but in the real world it is trickle up.
The SS tax cuts under Pres Obama did boost the economy.
Look up the allegedly “censored” TED Talk by Nick Hanauer.
The Soviet Union was long bankrupt before Reagan was even elected. What took the wind out of their sails was the F117 stealth aircraft. The F117 was started by Nixon built under Carter and operational under Reagan.

"I had no problems understanding her meaning."
What did you understand when the Liar in Chief said we could keep our doctors and plans?
DONALD TRUMP: Jeb Bush is a puppet to his donors, there's no question about it; he's got lobbyists, I know them, and he made statements over the last couple of days that were incredible, trying to justify the war in Iraq.
It can't be justified. And then he said "skin in the game." I don't know if you saw his recent statement. The U.S. has to prove to Iraq that we have "skin in the game."
We spent $2 trillion, thousands of lives lost, wounded warriors all over the place, and he said we have to prove that we have skin in the game. I think it may be one of the dumbest statements I've ever heard.
I had no problems understanding her meaning. She did not call Republicans terrorists. She does call real terrorists terrorist. Try to figure it out, you have all weekend. Put your listening ears on.

"When Reagan tripled the National Debt was it because he was also a Marxist?"
Well since you like percentages, at this point in the Reagan Presidency Obama's debt increase is more than 500% of what Reagan added.
But here is what makes Obama a Marxist and Reagan not, Reagan invested the money in bankrupting the Soviet Union and During the Clinton administration it is a major reason he got close to a balanced budget as the peace dividend worth well over $1T, probably closer to $2T.
Obama squandered much of the stimulus paying back political buddies and spreading the wealth around to the workers.
Obama's ideology is pure Marxist, he is limited to how he implements his ideology.
BTW Marxism is in no way communism, it is a view point not an economic system
This is what I found
Government support and politics
Solyndra received a $536 million U.S. Energy Department loan guarantee, the first recipient of a loan guarantee under President Barack Obama's economic stimulus program, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.  Additionally, Solyndra received a $25.1 million tax break from California's Alternative Energy and Advanced Transportation Financing Authority.
Following the bankruptcy, the government was expected to recoup $27 million under the Solyndra restructuring plan, but no money was ever recovered. 
Digging a little deeper you find Solyndra was a Obama supporter. It had nothing to do with Bush. Liars lie but this guy lies most of the time.
