EXCERPT: "SolyndraGate was no isolated case of corrupt government misspending. The U.S. Navy was just forced to buy 450,000 gallons of biofuels from an Obama-connected firm at an outrageous $16 per gallon. The massive Obama stimulus was supposed to generate millions of jobs, but the $535 million loan guarantee it gave to solar panel maker Solyndra on the eve of its Chapter 11 bankruptcy illustrated the fundamental incompetence of Obama's neo-Keynesian economic ideology. Now we find the Navy partnering with the Agriculture Department to purchase hundreds of thousands of gallons of alternative biofuel in place of standard JP-5 fuel for Navy aircraft — the biggest federal purchase of biofuel ever."
"As J.E. Dyer noted over the weekend on the Hot Air Green Room, "a member of Obama's presidential transition team, T. J. Glauthier, is a 'strategic advisor' at Solazyme, the California company that is selling a portion of the biofuel to the Navy. Glauthier worked — shock, shock — on the energy-sector portion of the 2009 stimulus bill."
Good God Obama makes Mugabe and Idi Amin look like SAINTS!
Of course Obama's toady Navy Secretary Ray Mabus mewled: "we are doing this for one simple reason: It makes us better fighters because our use of fossil fuels is a very real threat to our national security and to the U.S. Navy ability to protect America and project power overseas."
SAY WHAT? We are SWIMMING in more oil than OPEC and this idiot whines about fossil fuels? (See energy report in previous blog post)
Once again America, THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS when you elect Democrat MORONS to positions of power where they SHOULD NEVER BE! Hell, Obummer probably couldn't handle the job of city dogcatcher!
Oh, BTW, Obama had previously awarded Solazyme with a $22 million dollar payout from the 2009 "stimulus" that really only stimulated his crony's bank accounts.
