The Green President

I watched a commentary news program yesterday. The subject was green energy, which has always been important to me. The comment was made that Obama should be called the green president not the black president because of his strong commitment to green energy. They stressed the importance of wind and solar. Then they glossed over the fact that most of the jobs created to produce the materials necessary to accomplish were being manufactured in China.
I can remember during the campaign that often Obama would laud the ability of American workers and further it was assumed without question that green jobs would be created in America. I consider this a betrayal on his and Congress’s part of American workers. He and Geitner continue to talk tough with China about their unfair trade policies but don’t have the intestinal fortitude to take action. In the meantime they can find funds to fight obesity with their gift of $15 million to Pima County. Whoopee.
