Check out this AP story today:
So- Barack is going to use his Executive Power to reverse the limitation of federal funds for stem cell research and to reverse opening up areas in the U.S. for oil exploration?
According to an August 2007 Pew Research Poll, only 51% of Americans support ANY embryonic stem cell research- and I'd like to see a poll of how many Americans support using their tax dollars to conduct new research.
In another Pew Poll from June 0f 2008 50% of the country thinks we should begin drilling in ANWR while only 34% believe that protecting the environment is more important than developing new energy sources.
I don't believe in leading by polls- and obviously neither does Obama. But we are facing some very serious issues. Now is not the time to get into a debate on stem cell research- that will do nothing to bring the country together. And now is not the time to throw any option under the bus when it comes to addressing scarcity of energy resources. These are the two issues he wants to tackle by issuing immediate Executive orders?
It shows exactly who he is beholden to....the left.
P.S. The fact that Obama thinks he has some 1980 Reagan mandate is also ridiculous.
