One Subpoena, Two Subpoena, Three Subpoena, Four ...

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said Tuesday that his committee plans to investigate government loan programs to private corporations in light of allegations of improper dealings between the White House and failed energy company Solyndra and wireless start-up LightSquared.

"I want to see when the president and his cronies are picking winners and losers… it wasn't because there were large contributions given to them," the chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee said Tuesday morning on C-SPAN.
I want to see the thieves and thugs of the Obama administration behind bars for the rest of their natural lives. What they and corrupt members of Congress have done is unconscionable. Bringing this country to the verge of ruin for their political and personal gain. Let the subpoenas and the "I plead the fifth" echoing from the mouths of Solyndra big wigs flow like manna from Heaven.
[...] Solyndra abruptly filed for bankruptcy earlier this month, surprising both employees and the administration, which had secured $535 million in low-interest loans for the company.

Republicans in Congress quickly mocked the bankruptcy as emblematic of the president's green technology initiatives under the stimulus bill — and noted that a key Solyndra investor had been a bundler for the Obama campaign. House Republicans say they have emails showing the White House pressuring Department of Energy bureaucrats to expedite the loan approvals, although the White House has argued that nothing improper occurred.

Republicans have also charged that the White House pressured an Air Force general to revise testimony before a closed congressional hearing to aid LightSquared, a wireless start-up company. Emails between the company and the White House make mention of the fact that the company's CEO would be attending Democratic fundraisers in Washington, and administration officials met with executives from the company on the same day that CEO Sanjiv Ahuja wrote a $30,400 check to the Democratic National Committee.
Impeach and imprison the whole lot of them.

All of us do, if the useful idiots understood or were honest, well the ones that love America. The problem is that their side threatens to press criminal charges for our side doing what they were elected to do, such as executing the wars that "Bush forced us into", so our side of politicians don't press real criminal charges against their politicians when they get in, for real crimes, for fear of reprisals.

It's a slow slide to the bottom, much like our education system. Good politicians have little support while they are in office and face an insane party as an opponent. We will see after this next election though.

Odie - it's the least we can ask for.

Doom - there has to be some push back. That's the only way they learn - when the consequences are substantial and immediate.

FuzzyD - not just that. Seize their homes, their bank accounts, their fancy cars and their childrens' piggy banks and college savings. These people have fleeced the American public for trillions.

WoFat - boy, I hope you're wrong. We don't need a kind-hearted, forgiving man as the next President. We need a relentless, hard-nosed SOB who will nail these felons to the wall.
