Jon Stewart Skewers Obama White House On Solyndra

For anyone who hasn't been closely following the Solyndra scandal, Jon Stewart and The Daily Show put together a very helpful review.

It's a safe bet people in the Obama White House or re-election campaign won't see it as so helpful.

As you'd expect from Stewart, it's also a quite funny (and sometimes profane but with the required bleeps) retelling of how the Obama administration approved a $535 million loan guarantee to the solar panel producer connected to an Obama fundraiser despite a flawed business model and bureaucrats sounding alarms. In short, it's the eight-minute version of how the administration created an avoidable political disaster for itself at a most inopportune time.
