I didn't expect to see this headline until after Romney took office:


Justice Department seeks prison term for artist who created Obama 'Hope' poster...

Point being, I think the Justice Dept. has discretion over what cases they'll prosecute and how long they can draw them out. He may have committed a crime, but he's a friend to the Obama campaign regardless and it's only a misdemeanor. With friends like these...

Another example of Obama's fairweather support would be the poster boy for the green movement, some guy making solar panels in Michigan, I think. This was a guy who was growing his business out of his garage, making solar paneled something-or-others, using exclusively American parts. Well, Obama's people picked up on this, contacted this guy, and he served as their face of the green small business movement for awhile, making public appearances with the P and VP at various fundraisers and such. Then, when one of the parts of his couldn't be manufactured over here anymore, he had to go to China to find someone who could assemble one of this parts. The materials for that part still came from the US, but were assembled in China for some reason. Anyway, when his costs started to go up, he asked for assistance, and those same people who sought him out in the first place gave him the run-around. Mr. "You Didn't Build That" wasn't helping Mr. "Did Build That". Solyndra qualified for a government loan, but not this guy.

Our president cares for you as long as you are useful to him.

Edit: Here it is. I forgot about the actual policy that was hurting him. So it wasn't just that costs were going up, it's that he was forced to get a part from China, and that conflicts with Mr. Obama's policy.
