Stupid Government Tricks

Apparently the Delaware taxpayers are getting hosed because of a deal the state signed with Fisker.  That would be the same Fisker the US taxpayers are getting hosed for.

This statement from the governor’s office really ticked me off:

“It has not worked out the way he had envisioned,” [Delaware Gov.] Markell spokeswoman Cathy Rossi acknowledged Monday in a statement to FoxNews.com. “We didn’t know and couldn’t have known about the underlying technical and financial problems.”

We “couldn’t have known about the underlying technical and financial problems”?!

Yeah, you could have, you moron.  There’s this thing called “due diligence.”  It’s what you do when you are investing your own money to make sure you are not throwing your money away in a company with “underlying technical and financial problems.”

Apparently it’s not what government does when it’s spending your money.
