Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But any serious push on renewables will have to overcome opposition from "deficit hawks", some of whom are blind, others of whom are deliberately obtuse, who cannot see or refuse to see the difference between investment in a project that can pay for itself and more financial manipulation and gamesmanship. Clearly explaining the difference is subversive to the existing financial hegemony in US politics, so I will be (pleasantly) surprised if Obama does it.
