If you've been following the 2012 Presidential election at all, then you're probably familiar with the name "Solyndra."
It's a company that made solar panels -- and, as a part of the Obama Administration's alternative energy program -- got a huge loan from the government, like $535 million huge, and then went belly up.
Not surprisingly, Mitt Romney and other Republicans have been slamming President Obama about the failure, charging the Administration for not only made a poor investment with taxpayers money, but also pulling strings to get the loan approved quicker.
But now, Mitt has his own Solyndra, sort of.
On Friday, Konarka Technologies, a Massachusetts-based solar panel company that Mitt's administration gave a $1.5 million subsidy when he was governor, also filed for bankruptcy. Of course, the Dems were quick to hit the GOP candidate for the failed company. (Though we're pretty sure a loss of $1.5 million hurts less than $535 million).
The worst part is that Konarka filed bankruptcy the day after Mitt gave a surprise speech ripping President Obama over Solyndra, right in front of the boarded-up Solyndra factory. ... AWWKKKWAARRD.
But seriously, solar panel companies?
When did Presidential elections get so boring?
