Rick Perry calls 'Solynda' a country

Over at our Blog Briefing Room, The Hill's Jonathan Easley reports:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) stumbled over Solyndra, mispronouncing the company’s name and calling it a country.

Perry was hitting President Obama for his green energy policy when the slip occurred at a campaign event Sunday in Iowa.

“No greater example of it than this administration sending millions of dollars into the solar industry, and we lost that money," he said. "I want to say it was over $500 million that went to the country Solynda.”

Solyndra is a solar energy company that went bankrupt after receiving over $500 million in federal loan guarantees.
