AFP - Obama forgets...but we remember!

In just one week, President Obama will deliver his State of the Union speech to a joint session of Congress and the nation.

The President always seems to conveniently forget in his speeches that he has been president for the past three years. We can expect him to refuse to take responsibility for how his big spending policies have contributed to our economic woes. Instead, the President will promote class warfare to gain support for his tax increases and bigger government.

So in advance of the State of the Union speech, Americans for Prosperity is launching “Obama Forgets,” a 7-day effort that will highlight some of the Obama Administration’s worst offenses to the principles of limited government and free market enterprise.

"Obama Forgets" will lead up to President Obama’s State of the Union address, when AFP will host large watch parties throughout the country.

In advance of President Obama's State of the Union address, we're making sure to keep a spotlight on the Solyndra scandal, one of the worst examples of government cronyism in modern history.

With Solyndra, President Obama used our tax dollars to pick winners and losers in the market place in pursuit of his global warming ideology.  The result was predictable:  failure, wasted tax dollars, bankruptcy for the company and job losses for over 1,000 Americans.  This a glaring example of government cronyism as our tax dollars went to support the companies of wealthy donors to the Obama campaign.

The extent of political cronyism continues to be revealed. The latest reports show that the Administration knew that Solyndra could not pay its bills and planned to fire over 1,100 workers, but told the company to hold off until after the 2010 elections. We must tell President Obama: stop using taxpayer dollars to fund green energy scams like Solyndra because American workers are not political pawns.

Please take action now, and let the President know that American jobs and the economy are critical, and that you stand on the side of prosperity.
