I realize that the right wing takes great joy in undermining every single thing that Obama does. I understand it's great fun destroying whatever the other side is trying to do. I am 100% certain that if an incoming Republican were to do the same things Obama is now, then any failure would be downplayed by the right and extolled by the left. Same as now, only the roles are reversed. I don't want to take away too much from this partisan politics fun, but I only ask that we stop destroying each other over this one particular topic. I ask on this one thing that people place America's future energy security first, and playground games second.
I saw a video recently where Ted Turner asked why China has newer more modern airports and high speed rail lines and the US has nothing like it. The reason is, China isn't kidding around. Their government leaders go to work and get things done. American leaders spend all their time slinging mud at each other and achieving absolutely nothing! We've got to get serious about the security of our nation and stop goofing off. Countries like China aren't playing so we shouldn't either.
The big toodoo people are making over these failures is nothing more than partisan politics trying to undermine each other. The failures are real and the money lost is real, and something certainly needs to done about it. But using these realities to destroy America's future energy security is flat out Treason. Insisting on oil and only oil is like slitting our own throat. It means giving money to the people who support terrorism. Well I'm against terrorism. I wish the right wing and the Obama haters were against it as well. Anyone who undermines new energy development is undermining the entire US, NOT just Obama.
