Lots at Stake as Energy Takes Poitical Spotlight
In 2004, President George Bush was overwhelmingly re-elected mainly due to his efforts in the Iraq War and for his “stated” pursuit of Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. We all now know of those results and there affects on our nation’s economy.
Fast forward to the 2012 re-election campaign of President Obama and the election hopeful Mitt Romney, for the GOP. As former President Bush in 2008 ‘hung his hat’ on one premise, the Iraq War, so too should President Obama hang his on one premise – Clean and Renewable Energy.
Whether you like President Obama and his policies or not, we should all consider that he has relatively “cleaned-up” what Bush started. He’s ended Iraq (more or less), he’s winding down Afghanistan (hopefully more than less), Bin Laden and many of his cohorts are dead, and while ever so slowly, he has turned around the terrible economy with which he was left with to start.
But with all of this aside, the biggest decision for all Americans to make in the voting booth, as far as we should all be concerned regardless of everything else is President Obama’s position on Clean and Renewable Energy versus that of the GOP’s Oil and Gas. Everything else, jobs, the debt, military actions, race and religion, etc., will eventually take care of itself.
The main question for all Americans should be: Do I want a future renewable clean green energy economy or: Do I want an economy from past generations based on Oil and Gas… And as such, which Presidential candidate coming this November supports my vision of the future for energy…
