Obama's Got
Green cred. I do not think he will be bullied by the press into being the next Hoover. He knows we must spend money to get the economy back on track.
Obama told Time Magazine this month that with the economy flagging he wanted to launch an "Apollo project" to build an alternative energy economy.

Because "there is no better potential driver that pervades all aspects of our economy than a new energy economy ... That's going to be my No. 1 priority when I get into office."

And in his "closing argument" ahead of next Tuesday's election, Obama told an Ohio rally that his energy plan would create jobs while freeing America from Middle Eastern oil.

"And I will invest $15 billion a year in renewable sources of energy to create five million new energy jobs over the next decade - jobs that pay well and can't be outsourced; jobs building solar panels and wind turbines and a new electricity grid..." he said.

The press does not complain about the 10+ billion a month we spend in Iraq. Just watch when Obama proposes some project, they will scream bloody murder about the cost. Largest deficits in history no problem, under Bush. But they will be all over Obama for any spending. The media is inherently conservative.
