Suddenly the “hands on” heretic of 2009 has become the “wash my hands of all of it” weenie of 2011 when it comes to progressive politics. From reactionary to realist in such a short time, isn’t it amazing? Everything from the budget to now gas prices seems to have the Kenyan Kollectivist completely cowed..
According to “Obama: Expect little short-term relief on gas prices”, (Herald News dot com 04/07/2011) Obama seemed to have no trouble gassing up Air Farce One in order to give his socialist soliloquy to about as well scrubbed a group of fascist fawners as the left could possibly manage to lasso. Mind you, “well scrubbed” isn’t a descriptor used that often in relation to an assemblage of liberals.. I am of course speaking in reference to their “progressive provenance”, not their hygiene.. There is no faster way to arouse grunts of suspicion within a liberal crowd than to show up having clean hair and all of your marbles.. Here Obama was “pitching the promise of energy independence” which is as useless as him “pitching the promise” that he won’t raise your taxes “one thin dime”.. Obama’s “promises” are simply progressive pollution..
Obama claimed that it is “going to be a tough transition from America’s oil dependent economy..” Hmmm.. There are just so many directions that I can go with that last quote.. Shall I have a bash?
It certainly wasn’t a “tough transition” from capitalism to socialism once all of the collectivist confetti was cleared from the streets after the ingrate’s inauguration.. It certainly wasn’t a “tough transition” from common sense to the liberal lupercalia that took place as soon as he darkened the door of the White House.. It hasn’t been a “tough transition” from the socialist scorched Earth policies to the new shoulder shrugging because Obama now has a few Republicans to “blame” for HIS problems..
“I’m going to be honest with you..” I cannot believe that he didn’t spontaneously combust after he had the gall to make that statement in public, but he continued on.. “There’s not much we can do next week or two weeks from now” relative to the price of a barrel of oil. That being said, this is Obama’s cue to his travel agents to begin to plan another series of well earned vacations at the taxpayer’s expense..
Obama insists upon selling himself short when it comes to what he can “do next week or two weeks from now”.. Since the liberals NEVER bothered to READ ANY of Obama’s bloated bill’s during the “I won” fascist phase of his dictatorship, Obama proved unequivocally just how much DAMAGE he can “do next week or two weeks from now”.. I guess that the “promise” from old Porcelain Puss Pelosi about the Democrats magical powers relative to gas prices was another of those broken promises liberals are never called to task over..
Obama then launched into the typical laundry list of “cures” that the liberals love to trot out knowing that they have absolutely no intention of ever implementing.. “Reducing oil imports, tapping domestic energy sources and shifting the nation to renewable and less polluting energy sources of energy, such as wind..” Even if we attached a litany of progressive propellers to the impressive wind machine that is Obama himself, this would make nary a dent in the demand..
Obama wants to “reduce oil imports”.. Just last week, he “promised” Brazil that he wanted to be “a good customer” of their EXPORTED oil, so much so that he “promised” several hundred million American dollars to help with the process.. Is ANWR what Obama is musing about when he mentions “tapping domestic energy sources”? Do you believe him? When Obama pules over “renewable and less polluting sources of energy” he means the wonderful faux fuels, the “fools fuels” made from ridiculous recyclables that are even more costly than oil to produce and don’t have the power to light even your refrigerator.. What of all of the corn that is going into Ethanol production that could be feeding the world’s “poor”? This is the proof that the “poor” only matter to the liberals every four years to the day and not a moment sooner..
When someone had the audacity (of hope) to question Obama, like all snide liberals, he responded with, “If you’re complaining about the price of gas and you’re only getting 8 miles to the gallon you might want to think about a trade-in..” Well, Obama’s limousine is IMMUNE from the penalties that are liberally applied to the rest of us and our vehicles.. Is Obama considering a “trade in” for Air Farce One as he wings his way across the nation enforcing his “Contract ON America”.. Wouldn’t Obama fit rather nicely into a Piper Cub? By the way, the rest of us are “thinking about a trade in” come 2012, so call on one of your Illinois felon friends like Tony Rezko to start looking into a new mansion for your Bolshevik backside and as well you had better start stocking up on clear packing tape and bubble wrap and of course, recycled cardboard boxes..
Try as he might to run away from reality, even in an article about “energy”, Obama gets another reminder of what he is trying vainly (how else would Obama do it?) to run away from.. “Back in Washington, negotiations continued on a budget deal to avert a government shut down Friday..” “Obama urged lawmakers to get it done..” Here Obama took a page out of the cowardly Wisconsin liberal’s book as he made this demand from a distance.. This is the SAME Obama that hasn’t been able (or hasn’t wanted) to produce a budget even when he had the majority in BOTH Houses last year.. Back then, liberals like Landrieu and Nelson were all cutting deals for their votes and their GREED at wanting to get more than the next liberal in line caused this “mess” that he is NOW going to blame on the Republicans..
Proving that Obama and the liberals have all read carefully the words from Mein Kampf, the “big, then the bigger lie” continues to be the liberal leitmotiv.. “The president said he wants to cut spending..” Next thing that Obama will be trying to tell us is that Michael Moore wants to lose weight, Howard Dean wants help with his Tourette’s or Joe Biden wants directions to the local AA meeting.. Alright, Obama wants to “cut spending”, but “not at the expense of cutting priorities like energy and education..” Conservative Cure #1: I don’t want to “cut spending” in relation to the liberal abattoir known as “public education”, I want to ELIMINATE it..
The “Promising Poltroon” said that “cleaner and domestic energy sources will help create jobs and boost U.S. competitiveness”.. I CANNOT stand it when the left latches onto such vile words as “competitiveness” when for generations they have INTENTIONALLY destroyed the finest public education system on the planet. It is IMPOSSIBLE to be “competitive” ANYWHERE when the vehicle that used to make us “competitive” has been gutted and pawned to the goons and simians of the NEA by the liberals..
Was it a moment of humility that caused Obama to say “there’s little he can do to lower gas prices over the short term”? As was proven handily by the “Bolshevik Blitzkrieg” that began in early 2009, there is an awful lot he can do in the “short term” once he puts his Marxist mind to it, and I do mean “awful”..
