yes you got that right. This disaster is just what he wanted. Obama is smiling behind the door of our office. Time to fire him. Can this country take 2 and half more years of Obama who has no leadership.
He lied about not having land to drill for oil. We have land and shallow water where we could drill. Had we been able to drill on land or in shallow water we wouldn't be coping with this oil disaster.
As far as his "energy policy" (cap and trade), is this why he has been so slow to act on things that could have mitigated some of the damage being done by this oil disaster. I don't believe anyone was surprised by him bringing that up during his "speech".
Half way through his speech I kept thinking...bla-bla-bla. Same old, same old.
My thought is, when you have an administration who has expressed a willingness to use every catastrophe, and crisis for political gain, and you have a Cap and Trade bill that's dead in the water, how much of a stretch is it to manufacture a crisis. Especially with a company like BP, who is the largest donor to Obuttface, and has been working on new energy sources for decades. What if, they have one, but need oil to become scarce and frowned upon to make it work, and what if, you have a willing administration who will give them the oil industry on a platter....Hmmm
what an idiot, I am 100% for caring for the planet but solar and wind are intermitent power sources...kinda like a wood burning fire...works great so long as you have wood to burn, sun to shine and wind to blow....This guy has had enough OJT (on the job training). He needs to feel the heat of the nations unhappiness, he still doesn't take the voters seriously. We can not afford this president.
I lived for a while in a old house with only a wood-burning stove in the dining room and a fireplace in one of four bedrooms for heat. It was a miserable, back-breaking winter, made endurable only by the fact it was in South Alabama, not Minnesota or Idaho. I don't believe we will ever be oil-independent; we use it for far more than gas, diesel and jet-fuel - but we can certainly work at severing the umbilical to OPEC!!!
