I’ve been thinking about it, and now I think Barack Obama will do his best…

December 13th, 2008

…to govern towards the center, generic cialis sovaldi sale not have a scandal-filled administration and not rock the boat.

Why?

Well, generic viagra most Presidents feel the need to do big things. Reinvent government. Start a war. End a war. Stuff like that.

But Barack Obama doesn’t have to swing for the fences.

He already has a historic Presidency.

In fact, all he can do at this point is screw it up.

His job from here on in is to not make waves. If he can get through a couple of terms without major controversy or scandals, his place in history is secure.

If, on the other hand, he screws it up it’ll be 40 years before anyone other than a white guy wins the White House again.

    I think you might have a point, but I’m willing to bet Obama will also try to swing for the fences on something like health care reform or energy independence.

    As long as “energy independence” includes more traditional energy like oil, gas, coal, nuke and refining capacity.

    Technology for hydrogen and biofuels isn’t ready and is decades away for the masses. Wind and Solar are not base load capable (even though they can supplement) and the turbines and panels can easily be produced in India or China. Building a major power plant employs over 5000 people for several years as well as the tertiary restaurants, etc. He needs to focus on that for jobs instead of research at universities for the “green alternatives”.

    If he focuses solely on energy than the environmentalists approve of, he will fail.
