The heat has been turning up on the Facebook page of solar panel maker Solyndra since it declared bankruptcy August 31.

The heat is turning up on the corporate Facebook page of solar panel maker Solyndra after declaring bankruptcy August 31.

Like Wall Street before it, taxpayers, Republicans and Democrats alike are now focusing their anger and frustration on the company, which became a symbol for the administration’s green-jobs initiative after a visit by President Obama.

One of the most recent posts is a t-shirt offer featuring the Solyndra typeface combined with the President’s familiar sunrise campaign logo.

Following Solyndra Chief Executive Officer Brian Harrison and Chief Financial Officer W.G. Stover’s appearance last week before the House Energy and Commerce Committee, one of the entries on the company’s profile from Monday reads:

Congress is investigating whether the Department of Energy pushed a $535 million loan guarantee to Solyndra, with private investors having ponied up more than $1 billion.

Here are a few more comments from the Solyndra Facebook page.

Other posters are getting downright creative with their artwork. Take this post, for example.

Other Solyndra commentary appears on the Facebook page of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who wrote a rather lengthy attack in a note entitled, “Crony Capitalism on Steroids from GE to Solyndra.”
