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.
