Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

"The New Jersey (NJ) Energy Link is an offshore electrical transmission cable, buried under the ocean, linking energy resources and users in northern, central and southern New Jersey. This innovative transmission project will span the length of New Jersey and carry 3,000MW of electricity."

""John McCain in Syria, meets rebels""
""Sen. John McCain, one of the Senate’s loudest voices for further intervention in Syria, snuck into the country and met with rebel leaders Monday, his office confirmed to POLITICO.
The Arizona Republican made the trip from Turkey into Syria alongside Gen. Salam Idris, according to The Daily Beast, which first reported McCain’s visit. Idris leads the Supreme Military Council of the Free Syrian Army and accompanied McCain as they met with rebel leaders from throughout the country.

Thanks for being so stupid, Ed!!
I don't have to make you look like an idiot, you do it all by yourself!!
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA
This is almost as much fun as mocking your stupid ignorance concerning Gitmo!!
"nutsucker"
You are forgetting the red line in the sand president nobama drew. Mc Cain was at least able to talk to the Syrian rebels, nobama apparently is unable to do so.
Speaking of Gitmo, did not president nobama, say his first priority would be to close Gitmo. Just like all of his BS promises no action, 4 1/2 years in office, closing Gitmo was just another of his lies. nobama has nary a clue. Whats up today, another global warming speech. Why does nobama not make positive actions to lower the number of American's on food stamps? Or figure out why household incomes are falling? Or why fewer American's are paying the federal income taxes that support your worthless azz. Or why home values and home sales are at lower than the levels when he took office.
It is always a good day when you show up to spew your left wing garbage, it can be amusing.
Peace

I wouldn't mind a cash for cluckers program for golf carts. My gas powered 1989 Club Car has seen better days. Our co-op campground is a bit hilly and having an electric cart 10 to 15 years ago with three teenagers was impractical. An electric cart would never be idle long enough to get fully charged. However, now an electric cart would be more economical.
Wonder if his golf cart is still working and he is healthy

Promoting nuclear energy is (maybe implicitly) a cornerstone to promoting nuclear energy. The big energy producers like Exelon and FENOC will have an incentive to replace fossil generated electricity with nuclear by trading credits within their own production line.
BTW, the guy you voted for ran on a cap and trade platform too.

Sorry. The comment was intended for general consumption, not aimed at you.
However, Galt is amused and somewhat disturbed by folks from places like New York and Florida who think it's OK to ruin the Dakotas with wind turbines and the Mohave with solar panels so that they can live in sealed high-rise condos with air conditioning.
Even if the power transmission was feasible, which it isn't.
And then there is the issue of transmission lines.
Power transmission is very feasible and accounts for 22% of South Dakota energy needs and $4 billion in local business and government revenue. It pays to go wind in the Dakotas! "SIOUX FALLS, S.D.(AP)— A new report from the U.S. Energy Department says that South Dakota in 2011 had the capacity to generate about 22 percent of its electricity from wind energy, ranking first among all states.

Energy Secretary Steven Chu says that wind power represented 32 percent of all new electric capacity additions in the United States last year and accounted for $14 billion in new investment.

The department says that the percentage of wind equipment made in America also increased dramatically.

Nearly 70 percent of the wind turbines, towers, blades, gears and generators installed at U.S. wind farms last year come from domestic manufacturers, doubling from 35 percent in 2005."

<quoted text>South and North Dakota are two of the smallest land mass states in the U.S. so if it only takes that little land per population density to produce all electricity needs of the nation then that's a bargain!:-D
Yeah, both are tiny compared to Rhode Island and Delaware.

"Is" implies that it exists, which it does not, nor do the wind turbines.

If this can be built and financed privately, go for it.

Galt is betting that the radical environmentalists will shoot this down cold.

How do you propose to get power from North Dakota to Florida.

It hasn't worked, and it won't. Obama is a loose cannonball. He has only one guiding principle, the aggrandizement of his own ego. But just one Nobel Peace Prize, just one presidency, can never be enough for his insatiable needs. Obama will always need more. Obama wants to control everything except himself. That has always been a formula for tyranny, and Obama is no exception.

WASHINGTON, June 23 (Reuters)- U.S. lawmakers on Sunday said former national security contractor Edward Snowden's reported flight to Russia with a plan to flee onward to Cuba or Venezuela undermined his whistle blower claims and they slammed Moscow for helping a fugitive.

An aircraft thought to be carrying Snowden landed in Moscow on Sunday after Hong Kong let the former U.S. National Security Agency contractor leave the territory, despite Washington's efforts to extradite him to face espionage charges.

According to a source at Russia's Aeroflot airline, Snowden was traveling to Moscow and was planning to go to Venezuela via Cuba.

Democratic U.S. Senator Charles Schumer charged that Russian President Vladimir Putin likely knew and approved of Snowden's flight from Hong Kong to Russia. He said that will "have serious consequences" for a U.S.-Russian relationship already strained over Syria and human rights.

No President wants to give up powers that have been given him; once they are there, they're not going to be abolished, by any President. Don't you hear the voices of your party?

Would Romney, or McCain (if either had been elected) have dismantled the DHS? the NSA? the Drone Program?

Which party created the DHS? You republicans own it, just don't like that a Democratic President can excersise those powers.
