6. Well maybe so but still they were ready with this rebuttal when the story hit

or at least their money reporter was.
I looked at the reporters history and he's big on
the same shit Bain did.

Well let the games begin.

7. before anyone says this blogger is in the tank for Romney

he called out Romney on his Solyndra "inspector general" lie as hard as I've seen:

http://finance.fortune.cnn.com/2012/06/04/romney-wrong-on-solyndra-facts/

"An independent inspector general looked at this investment and concluded that the Administration had steered money to friends and family and campaign contributors."

Small problem: No inspector general ever "concluded" such a thing, at least not based on any written reports or public statements.

Romney seemed to be referring to Congressional testimony offered up by Gregory Friedman, inspector general of the U.S. Department of Energy, from March 2011. In it, he said: "We currently have 64 open investigations associated with the Recovery Act… Schemes under investigation include the submission of false information in applications for funding, fraudulent claims for rebates, claims for unallowable or unauthorized expenses, the directing of contracts and grants to friends and family, weatherization fraud to 7 include mischarging, and other attempts to fraudulently obtain Recovery Act funds."

Not only did Friedman never specifically cite Solyndra, but his office never brought charges related to any "directing of contracts and grants to friends and family." A spokeswoman for the DoE Inspector General's office declined to say whether any such investigation remained open, except to say that it never made the type of conclusion asserted by Romney.

In response to my inquiry, a Romney spokeswoman forwarded me a link to a Newsweek piece that mischaracterized Friedman's "friends and family" line (albeit without linking it specifically to Solyndra). She also noted that Obama supporter George Kaiser was the "single largest investor" in Solyndra, even though it actually was the private equity arm of a nonprofit, anti-poverty foundation founded by Kaiser.

When I wrote back for further clarification – or perhaps a retraction – the Romney spokeswoman went radio silent.

It's one thing to spin something to one's advantage. It's another to simply make things up to make the other guy look bad. Romney's Solyndra speech was an example of the latter. Disgraceful.

9. fuck the MSM

I am waiting for the detailed reporting from Rachel, Lawrence, ED, etc.... maybe even Krugman ...

personally, the more and more that comes out will show that he LIED about resident status, about leaving Bain in '99 and all of that is at least Perjury on the SEC and FEC filings, if not felony tax evasion........ I am waiting for the subpoenas to come next... by Nov, he is gonna be TOAST...it would be icing on the cake...he loses the election and then has to go to court to defend his stashing of millions....

11. Apparently they got it a few days before, none the less

It will be in the news and sorted, hashed, diced and sliced
for the next few weeks.

Which is good

BTW..........Where are his TAXES?..
I'm sure that will come up again after this.
