Wow. That was quick. Obama’s commitment and attention span to that which will, which must drive the future are…squirrel! Oh, wait. That’s, Solyndra scandal!
As greenie trade press outlet E&E Daily keens this morning:
The clean energy sector that had played a starring role in this year’s State of the Union address [NB: yes, seven short months ago] was reduced to a bit part in President Obama’s highly anticipated job speech before a joint session of Congress last night.
Gone was talk of “winning the future” and a new “Sputnik moment” for energy efficiency and clean energy projects. Instead Obama repeatedly pressed House members and senators to pass a new $447 billion “American Jobs Act,” which focuses on traditional job creation tools like infrastructure and construction projects, payroll tax cuts and unemployment insurance reform.
Yeah. That should make the problem go away. Except, watch this space: it turns out the administration has begun using the Pentagon’s budget as the new backdoor for tens and, it seems likely, hundreds of millions of dollars to keep feeding their buddies’ green boondoggles.
More on this latest scandalous twist in a bit but, SuperCommittee, I understand you want to cut defense. Please pick up line 1.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
