We’ve spent hours upon hours researching the Solyndra story and debunking every single one of the lies mentioned in this video (it’s packed full of a LOT) — click the link above to read some of those. But the really ironic thing about this video is that it was funded by the Koch Brothers, oil billionaires who are tied for 5th richest person in the U.S. and everyone now knows own the Republican party, and are making millions (or billions) off of that. Ironic? Yes. Will it still fool tons of people the Koch brothers screw every day? Yes.
“The conservative oil billionaires Charles and David Koch are spending millions on television ads meant to turn the failure of the Solyndra solar energy company into an election liability for Barack Obama,” the Guardian reports.
“…the ads will run for two weeks on stations in Florida, Michigan, Virginia, and New Mexico. All are battleground states in the 2012 presidential election.”
Well, you have to give it to the Koch’s, they know how to confuse the public, win elections, and make themselves richer while the rest of the country (or the 99.99%) get poorer.
