Obama's Speech
27
Tue, 06-15-2010 - 11:30pm

Well, I thought he was an incompetent leftist before his dopey speech tonight. But, this has got to be a new low for an American president.


"an oil spill that is assaulting our shores and our citizens."


"We consume more than 20% of the world's oil, but have less than 2% of the world's oil reserves"


"Countries like China are investing in clean energy jobs..."


"we see an entire way of life being threatened by a menacing cloud of black crude"


"there are costs associated with this transition"


So, to sum it up... Oil is bad.

"Resist, we much. We must, and we much. About that, be committed."

"Let me guess, you're not having to deal with the oozy, black gunk washing up on what used to be the gulf coast.....

Bill Weckesser asks if the Obama administration has willfully been scuttling clean up efforts in the Gulf so that the oil could make its way to shore and onto the beaches and birds for maximum political leverage?

I wonder if any of the union pension plans have any BP stock?

Obama fails to realize for every action he take there is an equal and opposite reaction in the economic chain.

It would seem so, although I haven't determined if it's intentional or not.
