After spending months touting the Obama administration's decision to loan $535 million to the California solar energy upstart Solyndra (http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/emails-obama-white-house-monitored-huge-loan-connected/story?id=14508865), top officials took a new tack Wednesday while testifying before Congress about the company's abrupt shut-down and bankruptcy: the loan, they said, was actually the Bush administration's idea. The Energy Department's top lending officer told Congress that the Solyndra loan (http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/fbi-raids-connected-energy-firm-solyndra/story?id=14473051) application was not only filed during President Bush's term, but it surged towards completion before Obama took office in January 2009.

At my place of employment we are allowed 3 months to blame misconfiguration, bugs and other problems on previous employees. After that, those on my current teams have to start taking responsibility for it. At no point in time are we allowed to blame something on a previous employee without fixing the problem immediately after it's found. I wish my government were like that. :D

The Bush administration turned them down.

Just another Democrat lie.
