Obama On Solyndra: “Not Our Program Per Se”

Amazing what a difference a couple of years can make, isn’t it?

Here, for example, is Barack Obama now talking about Solyndra — the bankrupt solar-panel company that we the taxpayers funded to the tune of billions:

“Understand: [Solyndra] was not our program per se.”

I know what you’re thinking: who the hell uses per se?

But here’s the real point. Barack Obama addressing Solyndra in May of 2010:

So that’s why we’ve placed a big emphasis on clean energy. It’s the right thing to do for our environment, it’s the right thing to do for our national security, but it’s also the right thing to do for our economy.

And we can see the positive impacts right here at Solyndra. Less than a year ago, we were standing on what was an empty lot. But through the Recovery Act, this company received a loan to expand its operations. This new factory is the result of those loans.

The Recovery Act, in case you’ve forgotten, is the failed Stimuls Plan (so-called) that none other than Barack Obama jammed through before anyone knew what was in it.

Barack Obama’s attempt here to distance himself from Solyndra is what I call prevarication per se.
