Hannity Rips Obama’s Green Energy Loan Quest

President Barack Obama’s pursuit of $6.5 billion in federal loans for green energy projects is a scam, Sean Hannity said on his radio show this afternoon.

“They want to expand the green jobs long-guarantee program . . . the same one that cost us more than a half billion,” Hannity said, referring the Solyndra loan and bankruptcy debacle.

The Department of Energy’s announcement this week that the loans would result in 283 new jobs is an embarrassment, he said.

“And they absolutely are bragging about this,” he said.

One of the projects — the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project in Tonopah, Nev. — has ties to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s brother-in-law, Hannity alleged.

“At some point, when does the anger kick in?” he said. “If this were about President Bush, I guarantee you this would be on the front page of every newspaper in the country.”

If 283 positions are filled on the heels of a $6.5 billion U.S. investment, that’s about $23 million per job, Hannity calculated.

“It’s kind of hard to call that a success, Sean,” said GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, a guest on Hannity’s radio show. “The idea of the federal government creating jobs is not a good idea at all. It’s the private sector that creates jobs.”
