Oval Office Address

The President’s first Oval Office Address was criticized from all sides. Most critics agreed that his performance (if not his substance) improved towards the end where he spoke about his plans to transition to clean energy. Unfortunately, he used the “if we can send a man to the Moon…” trope. Now I can’t stop thinking about President Obama sending a man to the Moon to find Green Energy. Except of course, he killed the return to the Moon project at NASA.  Maybe Nobel Award Winning Physicist Secretary Chu has worked out a plan?

Glaring Error

Today I was watching MSNBC’s Morning Joe and saw Mika Brznevski reading a script about the AP analysis of the BP oil spill plan and I had a few questions.

1. None of the bullet points illustrating glaring errors were material to cleaning up oil. Why was this considered news?

2. Who are the Obama Administration officials that approved this plan?

3. Why was the plan approved if the journalists at AP could find so many glaring errors?

I guess I have a fourth question too. What has happen to journalism these days?
