Sludge for brains
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.
