My travel to Fremont got all messed up this morning — because Mitt Romney decided to have a photo-op in front of the Solyndra building.
It is funny how the mainstream press will closely frame these PR stunts:
Here is a wider shot:
It would save everyone a lot of time and money if these candidates would just learn to use Photoshop.
And not to defend Solyndra, but a cost-benefit analysis of the Energy Dept’s investments should be based on the totality of the program, not a single failure. Romney understands this better than anyone, as surely his vast investment portfolio had a few stinkers now and then.
Like any other Venture-Capital effort, one major success can more than compensate for a string of losses. So, does the Energy Dept. have any big winners in its portfolio? Well, perhaps you’ve heard to these guys…their factory is practically next door to Solyndra. How could the assembled reporters not have noticed it when they were bused in?
