In a early morning press conference this morning, President Obama announced that the United States will convert the national power grid from AC or Alternating Current to DC or Direct Current. “Talking with the industry experts and electrical engineers, we feel that converting to Direct Current is a viable solution for solving America’s power crisis” states President Obama. “If we are to lead the world in innovation and green solutions, we must do so by revamping and overhauling our power distribution network.” adds the president.
In a surprise move which brought a shock and awe feeling to the national power grid association and power companies around the nation, advocacy groups are quick to bring praise to the president but question his timeline. “I was pleasantly shocked by the announcement until he mentioned the July 4th deadline.” states US power grid authority Dennis Rhinehold. “DC is absolutely the way to go, but just three months? What was the president drinking last night?” adds blogger and Washington insider Prez Hilton.
Details are still being worked out on the President’s new initiative to transform the national power grid. Major news networks were quick to point out that the new plans make it seem as though the county will be powered by the Energizer Bunny. Comments were also made that this bold move leads some to think that this is an “Etch-A-Sketch” like media blitz for the President’s re-election campaign.
