Before you could say, “Frostbite Falls, Wisconsin,” renewable energy came to the forefront of the U.S. presidential campaign dialog. However briefly.
To be as clear as possible — Obama has opened the door for discussion on environmental issues in the campaign.
In Pueblo, CO, Thursday, President Barack Obama found a soft spot in Republican opponent Mitt Romney’s flank.
While eager to lavish oil companies with public — that’s YOUR money — Romney has opposed tax credits for renewable energy sources. Of course, some of those invested in wind power, etc., happen to be Republicans in states such as Iowa and Colorado, various news sources have reported.
Obama’s administration has some legitimate claims on boosting renewable energy. Time magazine has listed them for you here.
The other side of the coin is that the Obama administration has also been supportive of oil drilling in the Arctic, etc., etc., etc. So we’re talking about the good with the bad here.
Oh by the way: You’ve probably heard by now that Mitt Romney’s choice for vice president is “green,” too — as in Green Bay Packers. Let me play that clip of Charles Martin destroying Jim McMahon’s throwing shoulder again. Never mind. It’s too violent for younger or more sensitive viewers.
US Rep. Paul Ryan, furthermore is a catfish noodler … also, too violent for younger or more sensitive viewers. Didja think Palin was fascinating?
