Obama: "If Some Politicians Had Their Way, There Won't Be Any More Public Investments In Solar Energy"

President Obama spoke about renewable energy at a solar panel facility in Boulder City, Nevada, the first stop in a two-day, four state tour. Obama will use the time to explain his energy agenda.

"If some politicians had their way, there won't be any more public investments in solar energy. There won't be as many new jobs or new businesses. Some of these folks dismiss the promise of solar power and wind power and fuel-efficient cars. In fact, they made jokes about it. One member of Congress who shall remain unnamed called these jobs 'phony.' Called them 'phony jobs,'" Obama said in Boulder City.

"Think about that mindset, that attitude that says because something is new, it must not be real," Obama said. "If these guys were around when Columbus set sail, they'd be charter members of the Flat Earth Society."
