President Obama or Sitcoms and Rock & Roll?
In an address from the Oval Office last night, President Obama asked Americans to get behind clean energy legislation, saying that BP’s Gulf oil spill is “the most painful and powerful reminder yet that the time to embrace a clean energy future is now.” Obama compared the move to clean energy to emergency preparations for WWII and the mission to the moon, although, unlike those very real and dramatic and successful government programs, he offered no specifics whatsoever. Mr. President, we're waiting for you to step up and lead with a specific program. Please don't punt it to Congress again like you did with health care. Millions of Americans are not going to wait much longer before they just give up and tune out of politics, retreating back into the gentle comfort of sitcoms and rock-and-roll
