The greens that form a key part of President Obama’s base have gotten him in a lot of trouble lately. The president experienced the first major scandal of his “scandal-free” White House due to unwise and ill-considered government loans to a green energy company that wasn’t ready for prime time, and his decision to nix the Keystone pipeline drew the ire of Middle America union voters who are now out of a job, not to mention the Canadian government. And with the economic picture mixed at best only months before the election, the brown jobs that have driven the recovery have received short shrift compared to the green jobs that have yet to materialize, and voters are beginning to notice.Yet for all this, the White House is still stroking the greens. The Wall Street Journal reports that the administration is planning a new series of talks and lectures aimed at convincing America’s largest companies to invest more heavily in green energy projects. And why wouldn’t they? It’s worked so well for him.
