"Americans have always pulled together during tough times to accomplish great missions. We can do it again. This time to create three million good jobs, free ourselves from imported oil, and clean up the environment. A New Apollo Project will tap our ingenuity, our collective spirit, and our competitive drive. It will rebuild cities and create good manufacturing jobs."
