Obama is anti-nuclear power, oh wait...Conservatives: "If the facts disagree with our opinion, ignore the facts -- or at least misrepresent them."

Why did he wait so long?
Bush wanted to put them on unused military bases to avoid some of the red tape so they could be built in our lifetimes... didn't happen.
We'll see if a shovel ever hits the ground."The world burns while Obama Tweets."

NRC approves new Georgia nuclear reactors - UPI.com
About $14 billion will be invested in the project by the time it is completed, and peak construction employment will be as high as 4,000 workers, the company said.
Southern expects to have the first reactor, known as Unit 3, up and running in 2016. Unit 4 will be completed the following year. The Westinghouse AP1000 units each will produce 1,100 megawatts of electricity.
The NRC said its inspectors have been on the plant site since 2010 and late last year approved the amended design of the reactors. The agency noted part of the design is an emergency shutdown feature that does not require human intervention or an outside source of electricity.

to be fair the president has very little to do with this. Obama may not have pushed for nukes but he did not stand in their way.

Southern Co CEO Thanks Obama Admin For Nuclear Reactor Approval - WSJ.com
Southern Co.'s (SO) top executive thanked the Obama administration Thursday for licenses it issued for new nuclear reactors, and said the company would incorporate in the plant any safety changes needed following a pending review of Japan's Fukushima nuclear complex.
Additionally, the federal government providing $500 million in loan guarantees to Solyndra was supposed to be some kind of smoking gun that the Obama administration was in bed with green energy companies. Well, this deal comes with $8 BILLION in loan guarantees for the company building these nuclear reactors.
In other words, the story makes most energy-related claims you've made against Obama in the last couple of years completely laughable.
