Here is the bad news.. As the Obama “stealth war” rages on, as the price of crude (no pun there, it IS “crude”..) climbs to an amount not seen since 2008 and with prices at the pump doubling under Obama, Wednesday’s Obama speech on energy couldn’t have been timed any better. The even worse news is that this “speech” was as useful as any other speech given by the socialist scaramouche..
Who can remember when the original California Raisin promised that if the liberals won the House, gas prices would be lowered. She even had a “common sense” plan.. If you try to find this “plan” to bring down “skyrocketing gas prices” at her House web site, both press releases from April of 2006 (04/19 and 04/26 respectively) can no longer be found.. It’s just a bit more of the patented “totalitarian transparency” from the left. She probably accidentally deleted both press releases while she was busy “draining the swamp”.. (When the liberals took over both the House and the Senate in 2006, it was simply “restocking the swamp”..)
Obama said that he wants to “cut U.S. oil imports by a third over 10 years..” (Obama calls for deep cuts in U.S. oil imports” Reuters 03/30/2011) This has “eluded his predecessors” and it is seen as “extremely ambitious” by analysts.. I would say that “extremely ambitious” is the diplomatic way of saying that it is “completely unobtainable” or “moronically naive”.. As is always the case, the liberals completely endorse the idea of the “gigantic lie” because it has yet to fail them as far as their constituents are concerned. When someone else calls them on it, they either ignore the question, they change the subject or they blame someone else.. Mind you, when someone else gets around to “calling them out”, the votes have already been counted so the damage has already been done..
“Obama outlined his strategy after spending days explaining the U.S.-led military action in Libya..” Here we go.. This quote should have read, “Obama outlined his strategy after taking days to get around to finally trying to explain the formerly U.S-led military action in Libya..” NATO is now leading this “military action” only after Obama tossed the hot potato to Canada and France. It is not being led by the U.S. and Obama is proud to actually admit such an embarrassing thing in public.. As well, if anyone believes that Obama “spent days explaining” his Libya lark, these days were wasted as no one on the planet has any idea what Obama is doing..
“In a speech that was short on details..” When reporting about any and all Obama speeches, this by law has to be the preamble.. Obama has been “short on details” since he began running for higher office, “inconvenient truths” like birth certificates and college transcripts and so on, so a diversionary speech about energy certainly isn’t going to “change” his liberal leitmotiv..
“There are no quick fixes until we get serious about long term policy for secure, affordable energy..” Obama knows this all too well as his idiotic “quick fixes” of the bailouts, the scamulous and all of the rest of the “unread yet passed” Bolshevik bills have done nothing other than create a permanent ten percent unemployment and they have manufactured “historic” deficits that will probably never be overcome.. There are two crucial words within that last statement, two words that bear further scrutiny.. “Secure” and “affordable”..
“Secure” is the liberal way to say that money for Middle Eastern oil is going into the hands of terrorists either directly or indirectly. There could very well be something to that thought and if Obama weren’t trying to merely appear tough as opposed to actually being tough, we could take over the sandy cesspool of Libya and in about the time that it takes for Billy Bob to violate another woman.. Soon everyone there would be speaking English by law and they would be having a fish fry on every Friday as they begin making plans for the first Christmas in Libya celebration..
“Affordable” is the BIGGEST of all of the liberal lies relative to the energy “crisis” scam. All of the imaginary faux fuels, those made from recycled toilet paper and the like, are inordinately expensive to produce and they don’t provide enough actual “energy” to even rotate a hamster’s wheel.. These “fuels” are ridiculously “funded” by the government and there is a very simple reason for that fact.
If these “fools fuels” really had any possibility of being even the least bit viable, the private sector would have created and implemented them a long time ago for a profit. Capitalists recognize the potential for profit when it is there and they capitalize upon it.. (No wonder this concept is a mystery to the fellow travelers of the left..) This just another of the fake “causes” that the liberals can prop up when they need to deflect attention or when an election looms. The liberals know full well that these phony fuels will NEVER work. That matters not to the left, they just want to appear to be “concerned” and they HAVE to be “moving forward” or “doing something about the problem”..
“Obama said the country must curb dependence on foreign oil..” Just a week ago, Obama while on his latest tax payer funded field trip abroad told Brazil that “the United States wanted to be a good customer for its oil exports..” I believe that it is time for Obama to “curb” his dependence upon puerile progressive platitudes and endless vacations..
When the left invariably starts talking about saving energy, they also toss out “making cars and trucks more efficient..” First off, I will guarantee you that Obama pollutes the environment more than I do by flying off at the taxpayers expense to the world’s sandy beaches as he vacation’s every other day.. As well, he pollutes the environment with his collectivist compost and he soils the ozone with his noxious nostrums..
“More efficient” cars and trucks usually end up having more plastic and Styrofoam as opposed to rubber and steel.. These liberal weenie wagons actually end up being “more efficient” coffins upon impact.. To repair these cardboard coffins is much more expensive too because one need only look at the fenders for them to collapse.. By the way, “more efficient cars” always cost the consumer MORE and that is thanks to the myriad of intrusive liberally inspired manufacturing requirements and the liberals union cuddle buddies..
As if on cue, Obama started crowing about “boosting alternative energy by encouraging biofuels..” The liberals are always “encouraged” when Obama “encourages” biofuels. Obama “encourages” them with our tax dollars and the liberals have used “Washington insider trading” and they themselves have invested heavily in the bogus concept.. Whether it is “efficient” or “economical” does not matter when the government MANDATES such tomfoolery. When the government mandates it, WE pay for it and the left profits from it. Actually, as soon as the government mandates it or becomes involved in it to any degree, it becomes “inefficient” and “wasteful”.. By mandating it, the liberals are all rewarded for their “investments” under the sanctimonious socialist guise of saving the environment.. More liberal lucre for their off shore bank accounts..
As what would HAVE to be a last ditch effort for a liberal, Obama might “include possible fuel taxes to encourage Americans to change their habits..” We all know that a liberal would NEVER consider raising taxes.. For the left to NOT raise taxes would cause them to have to “change their habits”.. What would a liberal do with the taxes raised from fuels? The “crisis” that is the public schools? Medicaid? The lowest class of liberal loafers would again profit from a tax that should have never been collected from their superiors in the first place..
“The American Petroleum Institute, a major oil and gas trade group, said Obama’s message was ‘just absurd’”.. To the American Petroleum Institute I say we simply cannot limit your perception to this “message” alone as it actually applies to each and every speech that Obama has ever given..
