Fox News On the Record television host Greta Van Susteren wants to know what David G. Frantz, Obama's energy loan head is smoking and Sarah Palin concurred with her on Thursday.
The White House's Dept. of Energy loan program executive director prompted the comment after saying the now defunct and bankrupt Solyndra was an "enormous success" after the president toured and helped promote funding for the energy company that proved to be a failure.
"What is he smoking?" Palin agreed.
Van Susteren wondered if maybe the man responsible for dishing out taxpayer dollars might hope for a "do over" on the comment, so he could make a public verbal about face under the obvious circumstances. And Palin said she thought at the very least the president should disassociate himself from the silly comment from one of his government leaders.
"For the life of me, I can't figure out how he describes it as [an] enormous success," Susteren said when it's obvious that a bankrupt company is anything but an enormous success.
And that leads right back to the question she asked: just what is David Frantz smoking?
Some think it could be the marijuana that allegedly made Rudy Eugene become deranged and attack a homeless man in Miami. Others think he is just saying Solyndra was a success because to do otherwise would emphasize his office made the huge taxfunded mistake of loaning government money to the company.
The latter hypothesis rings more true, but Sarah Palin and Fox News' Greta Van Susteren have at least pointed out the obvious: something went up in smoke in Washington where Solyndra was concerned, and it appears to be taxpayer money.
