Bringing the GOP’s Solyndra spin out completely of control, Presidential Candidate Michele Bachmann explained on Fox News today that the Solyndra debacle “makes Watergate look like child’s play.”
Really? Yes, really. Bachmann actually went there.
Perhaps it’s not surprising, coming from a candidate who believes that the Lion King movie is gay propaganda and who says carbon dioxide is harmless. (Time to update the 10 craziest things Michele Bachmann has ever said.)
Bachmann was also on Fox News last night, calling the Solyndra loan guarantee “criminal.” So far, the GOP investigation has found absolutely no criminal activity surrounding the approval of the loan guarantee to the now-bankrupt solar manufacturer. Of course, no one should make any assumptions about what did or didn’t happen before the investigation is through.
But Watergate? How soon they forget.
