While Obama has done everything possible to block drilling on public lands and even gone to the mat to stop the Keystone pipeline, he has illegally tossed billions at his Crony Capitalist Green Energy buddies.
But apparently they couldn’t pony up the cash to bid on a solar auction on public lands. Maybe they’ve all gone bankrupt already.
So much for the White House dream of solar selling like hotcakes. The first federal auction run by the Bureau of Land Management to sell chances to build solar power projects on public land went completely bust on Thursday.
Nobody showed to bid.
“We did not have any bidders come to the sale, and we did not received any sealed bids on the sale,” BLM spokeswoman Vanessa Lacayo said, Denver Business Journal reported.
But fear not, Obama Inc. isn’t giving up. Failure isn’t in their vocabulary. Or competence.
“The BLM had received interest in developing the sites, that’s why we moved forward,” Ms. Lacayo said, in the media outlet. “It’s hard to say why we didn’t have any bidders.”
I blame the Koch Brothers.
“We will evaluate today’s auction as we look at future opportunities to offer lands in Solar Energy Zones for development, both in Colorado and other Western states,” the BLM said, in a statement.
If at first you don’t succeed, do the same thing all over again and hope for different results.
