Getting Chu’d Out

Friday, October 28th, 2011

A follow-up to Failure is a Bastard, But Who’s the Bitch? and Baloney Capitalism, inspired by For Chu, lessons in political science (Washington Post10/28/11).


“As President, I would have fired Secretary Chu for so grossly mismanaging taxpayer dollars.” — Newt Gingrich


“Grossly mismanaging federal dollars” is something Newt knows all about

Because that’s one of the reasons he was thrown out.


All the Repubs are piling on Energy Secretary Chu,

As they in these kinds of situations like to do.


They want to use Solyndra to bring Obama down,

But at the least they’d like to runChuout of town.


Of course, as pundits have pointed out (correctly),

Attacking Chu is just a way to attack Obama (indirectly).


And it’s ironic that the DOE loan program of which they’re now so critical

Was to the Repubs who wanted their own projects funded then so critical.


And Mr. Ex-Speaker Gingrich, maybe it’s best that some more time elapses

Before you accuse others of ethical and competency lapses.


You know what it’s like to be chewed out by Congress and relentlessly attacked

(Too bad for your candidacy that you can’t that admission of guilt retract).
