Heh! Fisker Exec Credits Romney With Saving Taxpayers Millions


This is just funny. Mitt Romney recently criticized the Obama administration for blowing taxpayer money on failed or failing companies like Solyndra, Ener1 and Fisker Automotive. This didn’t make Fisker’s bigwigs very happy and the chairman of the company’s board expressed his displeasure with Romney in an interview. [Emphasis mine]

But Ray Lane, the former Oracle executive who chairs Fisker’s board, took exception after a Romney spokesman said the Fisker loan was an example like the bankrupt solar panel maker Solyndra of a failed investment by President Barack Obama. In an email to The News Journal in Wilmington, Del., Lane said Romney’s political attacks had kept the Energy Department from striking a new deal with Fisker: “Irony is Romney doesn’t understand he’s the problem and he’s lumping a company that did $100m in q1 with a company that’s bankrupt.”

Wow! Romney’s saving taxpayers money already. Be sure to check out the Romney campaign’s response to Lane at PJ Tatler. It’s classic.
