Obama Deputy Dampaign Manager Stephanie Cutter defended President Obama's investment in green energy companies like Solyndra, and said that because of his investments, the "country was prospering."
"Politics did not play any role and thats a known fact," she said about the investment in Solyndra, adding that president was "not picking winners or losers" but making "strategic investments" for the country "on behalf of the American people."
Cutter claimed that Obama's green energy investments created over a quarter of a million green jobs for America.
"The president was making investments for the country, because he's not going to cede an entire industry to China and India," Cutter said. "And as a result the company - country is prospering."
Cutter said that Romney went into investment deals to make profits for himself and his investors, not create jobs.
"As a result of that there were always winners and losers," she added, "But Mitt Romney always won."
