    I am pretty darn sure everyone who votes is aware of teh subtext behind green/alternative energy. It is not required that every speech browbeat the topic.
    If only the United States can this level of consciousness regarding climate change. But I simply can't be as optimistic as you are about it.

    •  Well that's not quite what I said but OK (5+ / 0-)

      Do you think there is a single voter who has not heard of the topic of global climate change?  A single one?

      When the President talks about green energy what is it that makes it green. Where did this term come from? Do you think it is well understood among voters?

      Remember, "green" is used to sell everything from dish soap to yacht wax these days.

      Do I think the only way to communicate a message is to browbeat it into the audience? No. I think Mr Obama actually is a bit more shrewd than that.

        I do not think that this is well understood among voters in the United States. Not in the slightest.
