This article was written right after President Obama came to Solyndra to announce the $535 million loan guarantees for the new Fremont plant. It is skeptical of Solyndra’s prospects and questions the Department of Energy made a mistake.

This Wall Street Journal blog post notes that a big investor in Solyndra is Oklahoma billionaire George Kaiser, or at least the venture capital arm of his banking and oil empire.

And this article notes that Kaiser was a “bundler” for Obama, which means he gathered lots of campaign contributions for the president during the 2008 campaign.

  1. $535 million from the Obama admin, just a call and a back slap away.

    And the Democrats fault Republicans for wanting to use unused stimulus funds for extended unemployment. Now I see why, the Dems have important people to pay off.
