Obama’s Solyndra debacle was crony capitalism that cost the federal government $500 million. Freddie Mac was crony capitalism that cost the federal government $72 billion and counting. Gingrich got paid over a million dollars to be a shill for Freddie Mac and recommend the Freddie Mac business model. Gingrich got paid. The taxpayers got shafted. Gingrich helped produce a super-Solyndra before Solyndra. Yeah, I know it isn’t totally fair. The ranks of the guilty are very large, but most of them aren’t running for President or pretending that they were paid to tell Freddie Mac to abandon its business model. Come on people. This narrative writes itself.
