I made a comment on Breitbart today to the effect that liberals have millions of pet projects, and Obama, with his "hope and change" promise attempted to place all of those pet projects under the same tent.

Robert Kennedy Jr. wants you to know that he’s all in favor of green energy projects.

“As an environmentalist,” he explained seven years ago in the New York Times, “I support wind power, including wind power on the high seas. I am also involved in siting wind farms in appropriate landscapes, of which there are many.”

That alone should qualify him for a Presidential Medal of Freedom… if, you know, he hadn’t supported Hillary Clinton for president rather than Barack Obama.    

But Kennedy also thinks that we shouldn’t get too carried away by the prospect of “free wind power”-...
