Fantasy world politics (Nuclear Power)

WASHINGTON — There has been no more reliable cheerleader for President Obama’s energy and climate change policies than Daniel J. Weiss of the left-leaning Center for American Progress.

But Mr. Obama’s recent enthusiasm for nuclear power, including his budget proposal to triple federal loan guarantees for new nuclear reactors to $54 billion, was too much for Mr. Weiss.

The president’s embrace of nuclear power was disappointing, and the wrong way to go about winning Republican votes, he said, adding that Mr. Obama should not be endorsing such a costly and potentially catastrophic energy alternative “as bait just to get talks started with pro-nuke senators.”
Actually, the president's "embrace" of nuclear power is an absolute joke. Even if he does follow through and put money aside for a measley two (2) nuclear projects, the greenies out there will file lawsuit after lawsuit to make sure that nothing ever comes to fruition.

This has nothing to do with the will of the people. Any lawsuit will eventually end up in front of some judge who likes to legislate from the bench... This is a safe bet for Obama, because he knows there will be no new nuclear plants while he is in office. Greenpeace...Friends of the Earth...WWF and all the other statist idiots are already gearing up for challenge after challenge and injuction after injunction. The Ninth Circus Court of Appeals is alread clearing their schedule.
