I don't know why some of you are going on about being right and winning. Rob and Impediment were in on this gag because I PMed them. Silent and Rao PMed me and figured I changed the post. I highly doubt anybody thought Quan made the post, but simply played along just for the lulz.
All Fly has done is try and take Solyndra off the list as a scandal, refusing to recognize it as a failure, and cast the blame on "Trump had five bankruptcy as a civilian" which completely means what Obama did, wasn't a failure.
Remember Fly has said numerous times everyone else is partisan here, but him.
I do view it as a very easy to label scandal. It was a pretty big deal back in the day and it was part of what got Democratic voters butthurt about Obama...and part of why many liberals protested Obama in the streets with signs that said "Bush 2.0."
To cover more details on why this is an easy scandal to put on Obama:
Basically, Obama was trying to make a name for himself very quickly out of the gate. The purposefully did not take good advice. Obama lied. Bla bla bla. They went under because it as poorly managed. And we have the scandal.
If you were to do this as a business, you'd get fired. Obviously. Which is part of why people were mad and protesting Obama in 2012. Some of the lying that Obama died and "washing away" to save his ego is very similar to what Trump is doing now. It's actually a bit weird reading things Obama said that are eerily close to the same things Trump says. Blame games. Trying to save face. Backdoor deals. Not listening to advice. Sounds a lot like Trump, doesn't it?
