President Obama Speaks on Expanding Our Energy Portfolio

From the White House; “President Obama discusses investing in clean and renewable energy sources as part of an all-of-the-above strategy to develop American energy and reduce our reliance on foreign oil at the Copper Mountain Solar Project. March 22, 2012.” President Obama used this as a oppotunity to attack his opponents. “If some politicians had their way, there won’t be any more public investments in solar energy. There won’t be as many new jobs or new businesses. Some of these folks dismiss the promise of solar power and wind power and fuel-efficient cars. In fact, they made jokes about it. One member of Congress who shall remain unnamed called these jobs ‘phony.’ Called them ‘phony jobs,'” Obama said. “Think about that mindset, that attitude that says because something is new, it must not be real,” Obama said. “If these guys were around when Columbus set sail, they’d be charter members of the Flat Earth Society.”
