The losses in Obama's investment portfolio

Marc Thiesen:
Forget Bain — Obama’s public-equity record is the real scandal
The list of Obama's sorry investment losses goes into the billions and has resulted in a meager few jobs.  Thiesen gives a rundown of some of them along with this summary of who benefited from these bad investments:
...Amazingly, Obama has declared that all the projects received funding “based solely on their merits.” But as Hoover Institution scholar Peter Schweizer reported in his book, “Throw Them All Out,” fully 71 percent of the Obama Energy Department’s grants and loans went to “individuals who were bundlers, members of Obama’s National Finance Committee, or large donors to the Democratic Party.” Collectively, these Obama cronies raised $457,834 for his campaign, and they were in turn approved for grants or loans of nearly $11.35 billion. Obama said this week it’s not the president’s job “to make a lot of money for investors.” Well, he sure seems to have made a lot of (taxpayer) money for investors in his political machine. 
All that cronyism and corruption is catching up with the administration. According to Politico, “The Energy Department’s inspector general has launched more than 100 criminal investigations” related to the department’s green-energy programs....
This is a scandal so huge that it is surprising the media has not explored it before now.  This is especially true when Obama is asking for billions more for similar "investments."  Is it any wonder Obama does not understand the importance of profits.
