    White House Documents Show Obama Officials Heavily Involved In Preparing For Collapse of Solyndra…

    And yet just last week Obama tried to claim this wasn’t his program.

    (E2 Wire) — Several key White House offices were involved with the Obama administration’s messaging plans and other preparations as the collapse of the taxpayer-backed solar company Solyndra was imminent, newly released documents show.

    The latest White House documents delivered to House Republicans on Friday again highlight the extent to which senior administration officials braced for the fallout as Solyndra — a company President Obama had personally visited — was about to go under.

    A White House memo that noted the danger of “imminent bankruptcy” at the end of August 2011 says, “OMB, DPC and NEC have been working with press and OLA to be prepared for this news to break.”

    Acronym translation: OMB is the Office of Management and Budget, DPC is the Domestic Policy Council, NEC is the National Economic Council and OLA is the Office of Legal Affairs.

    The document, an update on Solyndra’s $535 million Energy Department (DOE) loan guarantee, notes that $527 million had been disbursed and that DOE believed no more funds should be alloted.

    I think not, it doesn't fit the agenda. I know some of you are seeing the light, while others are black holes incapable of thinking for yourselves. But then again, maybe those of you who do that enjoy the ring through the nose way of thinking.

    Wake up and start smelling the coffee.
