Weekend Doc Dump Proves Solyndra Not a White House Program, Per Se

Another Friday has passed by, which means there was another drive-by document dump regarding Solyndra — 432 pages this time (last week’s doc dump discussed here).

A couple of days ago, President Obama <a href="said that Solyndra “was not our program per se.” In spite of that, as the headline in The Hill regarding this week’s doc dump states, there was an “all hands on deck” reaction from the White House as Solyndra’s collapse appeared imminent — the same type of panic that would grip any administration in regards to bad news from a program that wasn’t theirs… per se:

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.

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.”

The White House scramble must have been to find a way to convince Congress and China not to not cause such expensive disasters in the future. Shame on them!
