Fisker Flashback: Ray Lane Touts Obama As Greatest Venture Capitalist-In-Chief Using Solyndra as Evidence
You can't make this up. Ray Lane, the very nicely politically-connected investor whose connections to Obama are often credited with Fisker scoring millions of taxpayer money, made a video several years ago praising Obama as a great new model of venture-capitalist-in-chief.
I can't believe any intelligent human being would think that the right role for the President is to be a venture capitalist with taxpayer money, or that even if this were so that Obama would be the right person with the right skills to do it well, but I suppose trying to score hundreds of millions in taxpayer money changes your perspective.
But the funny part is the example he uses - he thinks the best evidence of Obama being a swell investor is ... Solyndra. Obviously filmed before Solyndra failed (and the US government allowed all the remaining assets to go to another set of Obama cronies), this video is hilarious.
