      Saw that earlier.  But that's the EPA, not Obama.

      If Obama supported that kind of job creation, we'd be seeing much, much more of it.  Sadly, we aren't.

        The Obama administration moved forward on the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and passed over 475 million dollars in Great Lakes restoration funding for 2011 with a plan to spend at least that much every year for five years. That money has been reduced to 300 million for 2012, as one of the items on the budget cut chopping block. I'm not going to complain TOO much.

        by your reasoning:
