Reuters Yea I'm not surprised by this. I think President Bush tried to do the whole green thing with alternative fuels or something with his state of the union address. A pressing need was it? Anyway, if Obama can be credited with reducing the deficit and overall government spending his 2012 bid will be a lot easier. I just hope he goes into detail explaining how. What programs are to be cut? What programs are to be scaled back? Specifics please.
