    I see Obama as focused on the FUTURE. Preparing for it, upgrading our infrastructure to deal with it, educating for it, researching new technologies, developing promising ones.

    That means investing in green tech, space travel, basic research. And yes, the young will reap the benefits of that. I'm not young anymore, but I still want my children and grandchildren to have a better world, not a worse one.  

    The GOP wants to cling to the past, worship it, stop all progress, research, education. They don't want to have to change anything, unless it directly benefits them, and even then they have to think about it REALLY hard.

    They hate change. Obama seems to embrace it, and is trying (and it's got to be frustrating for him) to drag the rest of the party with him.

    If I had to give the parties each a slogan, I think I'd have to give the Dems 'To boldly go' (even though they don't go fast enough) and the GOP would be 'You can't make me, you're not my Mom'
