Obama Chastises Republican Oil Company Prostitutes
Or maybe that’s a redundancy — “Republican” and “oil company prostitute.”
During a speech in Florida last night, President Obama lashed out at the oil industry’s harem (i.e. Republicans) and their retarded “Drill Here Drill Now” “solution” to high gas prices. Defending his energy policy, Obama said:
“Only in politics do people root for bad news and they greet bad news so enthusiastically. You pay more, and they're licking their chops.”
He also ridiculed the Republicans’ three-point plan for lower gas prices:
“I'll save you the suspense: Step one is drill, and step two is drill, and then step three is keep drilling. Well the American people aren't stupid. They know that's not a plan — especially since we're already drilling. That's a bumper sticker. It's not a strategy to solve our energy challenge. It's a strategy to get politicians through an election…Anyone who tells you we can drill our way out of this problem doesn't know what they're talking about — or just isn't telling you the truth.”
People who are informed — this excludes the gene pool rejects who get their “news” from Fox and talk radio — are aware that oil usage is at a fifteen year low, AND that there’s been MORE drilling under the Obama Administration. They’re also aware that oil speculators are a major reason for skyrocketing oil prices.
In addition to speculators, oil exports are also inflating the price. Oil companies can make more money by exporting oil than by selling it domestically.
I have no idea whether the government can — or should — force the oil industry to sell its products here instead of overseas. But the public needs to clearly understand the cause and effect: oil prices are sky high because of exports and speculators; NOT because those sissy treehuggers won’t let us drill.
