On MSNBC, President Obama’s deputy campaign manager, Stephanie Cutter, refers to Solyndra as a “strategic investment.”
So, to sum up:
Mitt Romney’s performance record with his clients’ money at Bain: 70 percent profitable, according to a study by the Wall Street Journal.*
Barack Obama’s performance record with your money at Solyndra: 100 percent loss.
I know which “strategic investor” I would trust.
* Bain officials argue that the figure is closer to 80 percent over their history, but that figure appears to include investments made after Romney left the firm.
