Sludge for brains

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Wow, what a great pres­i­dent we have. Gas is now over $5.00 a gal­lon in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. How long will it be be­fore the rest of us pay those prices? We have one of the world’s largest re­serves of nat­u­ral gas, a 250-year sup­ply of coal, oil in shale oil de­posits in West­ern States larger than Saudi Ara­bia’s and at the same time, the pres­i­dent’s sup­port­ers have not al­lowed us to com­plete a nu­clear plant in over 30 years.

What’s the re­sponse from Pres­i­dent Obama? To lift the ban on drilling off­shore, as Pres­i­dent Bush did, when gas reached it’s pre­vi­ous high of $4.11, which dropped in price the fol­low­ing day? Has he coura­geously told his sup­port­ers in the en­vi­ron­men­tal move­ment to stand down and or­dered his In­te­rior Depart­ment to is­sue per­mits to re­cover the nat­u­ral gas and shale oil? Has he au­tho­rized drilling in AN­WAR on the one per­cent of the des­o­late area it would take to tap that oil? Has he fast­tracked clean coal and nu­clear plants? While Amer­i­cans suf­fer with the high price of gas and gro­ceries, all he’s do­ing is pre­vent­ing us from tap­ping our abun­dant en­ergy sources. Ap­par­ently, “the pro­fes­sor” has never heard of the law of sup­ply and de­mand.

Last but not least, af­ter two years with dic­ta­to­rial ma­jori­ties in the House and Se­nate, for the first time since Pearl Har­bor was bombed, Stan­dard & Poor’s down­graded the credit rat­ing of Amer­ica be­cause of his poli­cies.We can’t sur­vive an­other four years of this empty suit.
