Obama talks up STEM

Here President Obama meets with young science entrepreneurs as a backdrop for announcing expansion of an existing AmeriCorps program in an effort to improve STEM education for 18,000 low-income students. In an era of austere budgets coupled with a lack of bipartisan on nearly anything supporters try to inject STEM funds into every and anything remotely related.As such, I see strong parallels with this modus operandi of funding STEM as I do with funding green initiatives in the wake of the Solyndra debacle. Your thoughts?
