Psychological projection or projection bias is a psychological defense mechanism where a person subconsciously denies his or her own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to the outside world, usually to other people.
Congressman Henry Waxman is running interference for the Obama Administration and big Democratic donor pals, the Solyndra executives, who managed to get access to and then squandered over 500 million in taxpayers funds for yet another green boondoggle. Yesterday he accused Republicans of badgering the executives as they refused to testify.
This is the same Henry Waxman who has absolutely no problem harassing and badgering witnesses when it serves his purposes.
Like BP CEO Tony Hayward
Or Roger Clemens…
Or Victoria Toensing from the Valerie Plame case….
Let’s review, shall we?
Obama’s big campaign bundlers from Solyndra received in excess of $500 Million dollars from the Obama Administration in the form of Federal Loan guarantees. The company never had a profitable business model and went bust, but not until after they restructured the loans to ensure that the taxpayers get paid last during the liquidation of assets.
Then the Obama White House sends its FBI, under the direction of Eric Holder, to seize all of Solyndra’s files and computers in order to conduct an ‘investigation’ which means that their executives cannot testify before the legislative branch.
This whole process is scandalous to its core and the branch of government that should be under investigation is in possession of all of the evidence and has silenced their co-conspirators.
Why was this not a debate question the other day? The candidates should all be out front and demanding an Independent Counsel to dig into these matters, granting immunity to the executives and employees if for no other reason than to get it into the Mainstream Media, who seem uninterested in the whole thing.
In another clear example of how much green is being distributed within this green energy scam, an Obama supporter who received $107,000,000 for his little windfarm project to host a $25,000 per plate Obama fundraiser next week.
Turns out he’s part of the Missouri Democrat Carnahan clan.
This country looks more like a soviet banana republic every day.
