As you may know, the blame-shifting White House Occupier blame-shifted the Solyndra debacle to fill in the blank, or "anyone other than Teh Won" (ie. Congress.)
Though predictable at best, I find the timing (how many months after Solyndra's bankruptcy?) laughable, and frankly desperate. Nevertheless, that doesn't mean the miscreants and morons in the press won't run with it like the knee-pad-donning Obama-water-carrying-sycophants they are.
In other words,
Obama -- "Hey, look over there! It ain't me! It was Congress!"
Half-wit mainstream press -- "Oh, wow, look, shiny!"
Unfortunately for the White House Occupyer, the following story in The Hill (hardly a right-of-center source) dispels the Obama notion of Congress dun it, not me:
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.Quick question: If the Solyndra corruption story was entirely Congress's fault, then why did the White House scramble as the company crumbled?
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.”
Inquiring minds would like to know...

"Wait, Axelrod, You Mean We Can Blame Solyndra on Congress 6 Months After its Taxpayer-Funded Bankruptcy?
