No drama, Obama? Sounds dramatic to me...

In today's radio address, the President-elect specifically said he intends to add jobs in the greentech sector. Here's the specific passage: "We’ll put people back to work rebuilding our crumbling roads and bridges, modernizing schools that are failing our children, and building wind farms and solar panels; fuel-efficient cars and the alternative energy technologies that can free us from our dependence on foreign oil and keep our economy competitive in the years ahead.

In today's radio address, the President-elect specifically said he intends to add jobs in the greentech sector. Here's the specific passage: "We’ll put people back to work rebuilding our crumbling roads and bridges, modernizing schools that are failing our children, and building wind farms and solar panels; fuel-efficient cars and the alternative energy technologies that can free us from our dependence on foreign oil and keep our economy competitive in the years ahead." My italics.

Then he continued: "These are the long-term investments in our economic future that have been ignored for far too long. And they represent an early down payment on the type of reform my administration will bring to Washington — a government that spends wisely, focuses on what works, and puts the public interest ahead of the same special interests that have come to dominate our politics.

"I know that passing this plan won’t be easy. I will need and seek support from Republicans and Democrats...."

Guess that last sentence puts the hopes of anything concrete getting through Congress into some perspective...like, maybe, a cold day in hell? Obama does NOT have sixty votes in the Senate. Finis.
