    I give Mittens an "F" for his lack of preparation. Look up the Bush Energy Policy Act of 2005 and the loan guarantees his administration made to Solyndra. Mittens finds more non issues than Fox foreign owned media.

    As Mittens puts it, what is sauce for pate is also sauce for caviar.

    I think Obama would tire if he had to go around to every company that failed because of the Mittens. Mitt needs to get his facts in order when it comes to this stuff.....This is all so childish...

    Four stories, four mentions that Romney went to Solyndra. We got it the first time (314 responses), the second time,
    here, the third time in your story of Mrs. Reagan's endorsement, and the fourth time on "Romney sends hecklers".
    Think we got it now, can we move on?
    I would rather hear about the Romney spokesperson saying Romney's plan is the "Bush agenda – updated",
    or how about the voter purge going on in Florida, or why Scott Walker needs a "defense fund.

    According to the news, the visit wasn't just a 'surprise', it was carried out in super secret because Mittens feared that the White House might sabotage his plans.

    Seriously. Is this guy 13?

    Ask Romney if he is willing to donate all of his $200 to $300 million to pay off USA debt but he can keep his $10 million so in that way we can see if he truely cares about our country.

    The Solyndra loan controversy is a political controversy involving U.S. President Barack ... The bill was signed into law by George W. Bush on August 8, 2005.

    I'm sure Romney will blame Obama for the war in Iraq as well !

    Since the article wasn't visible on mobile phone, I hope that mr Acosta called out mitt Romney's lies he told today.
    This is the MSMs job to vet the candidate.

    Surorise visit to Solyndra !! give us all abrak it was clearly Orchestrated planned with media at least advance warning,
    Of course he has every right to go and do it... but surprise and content pure campaigning at its worst.
    PS venture capital people frequently take advantage globally of government programs to help them turn companies around.

    So, what would you have rather done with the money, Romney? Give yet another tax cut to those who already have a lot of money so they won't create any jobs here with it?

    The lies he told there have been debunked all over the internet and on every major news channel (except, of course, FOX).
