    Seriously, why didn't the President say this is the time for a Modern Apollo Moment?...

    Sputnik was the Soviet's Accomplishment... Apollo was ours... and our Response to Sputnik and the Threat it Posed.

    Who is Dominating, or has the Potential to Dominate the World with Green Energy the way the Soviets could have with Sputnik and their Previous Work on the Hydrogen Bomb?

    For the Love of GOD, this is a Silly, Childish Analogy on the part of the President Designed to Target the Childish and Silly in his Base.

    The Truth of the Matter is that the Countries we are Competing with Economically don't give (2) Shits about the Environment like we do, and their lack of Regulation and Poor Working Standards is why OUR Companies are going there to do Business...

    Obama and his People would Suggest that MORE Regulation on OUR part to make the World a Greener Place is the Answer...

    And as with THE Liberals before him who Thought that if we would just Disarm, others would be Honest and follow our Lead, he is now Wrong if he Thinks China is going to Cripple it's Exploding Economy with Regulations...

    It's Absurd, and only a Childish Mind could Consider such Silliness.

    Or the Mind of a Liberal.

    :)

    peace...

    I have to admit I fell for some of the pre-speech bs.

    the story was he was freezing discretionary spending.

    then during his speech he replaced the word "spend" with the word 'invest'.

    Spending didn't work and neither will investing. You can call a pile of shit a dozen roses, but that won't keep it from stinking.

    You have to remember which side Obama feels most comfortable on. It's Sputnik, it's American soldiers as jackals, its the Little Red Book

    It's a bit revealing of his depth that Tha Malcontent does not know what the President means when he says "Sputnik moment".
