The President talks about what we need to remain a preeminent world power, including a first rate educational system, new investment in upgrading our infrastructure, and a commitment to clean energy that will produce jobs, new industry, and address the energy needs of our country. I have always been perplexed by Republican attacks on alternative energy. Our major economic rival, China, has invested heavily in renewables, and is already reaping the rewards of that investment. The President has built a new message that he hopes will show that we need to dramatically alter the way the federal government spends money, but we cannot run away from spending that we need to ensure that we remain the world’s number one economy. Without targeted investment in our future we are destined to fall back economically. The fight on this issue is just beginning.
