    The thought has crossed my mind that Obama is the perfect person to get the “green” ball rolling faster (embarrassing? maybe. lol jk). Due to the level of unemployment, the creation of jobs is important not only to We the People, but to Obama’s reputation. However, the creation of his “new energy economy” & along with it, “green” jobs, is even more critical. Who could be better? When could be better?

    I really wish he wouldn’t focus the frustration from the spill on the Cap & Trade legislation. Cap & Trade is only going to hurt this economy more. I can only wish though.

    Just remember, we’re not even half way through Obama’s first term yet. It could still happen. Even though I am really doubtful it will considering what a death hold Big Oil has on the US government currently, I can only be hopeful.
