Obama ‘s Weekly Address: Drill, Baby Drill!

Barack Obama told us time and time again that would we couldn’t drill our way to energy independence. That’s why he supports drilling in Brazil and government funded green energy projects.

Just last year he told an audience,
“You never heard me say, ‘”drill, baby drill… We can’t drill our way out of the problem.”

Maybe we can.

Today, in his weekly address, Barack Obama said he will open Alaska’s national petroleum reserve to new drilling, to help bring down gas prices.

Of course, with Obama, we’ll believe it when we see it.

    You’ve interpreted this in error. Obama said he’d consider drilling teenage acne victims for oil, he did not say he’d allow US oil companies to drill for oil in Alaska.

    Obama talks a lot more then his actions over the last two years really produce. He talks and the Department of Interior sits on their thumbs, and nothing gets done. The joke is on those idiots that believe what he says.

    Shell Oil bought $2,000,000,000 worth of leases off the N. Alaska coast. Just a couple months ago, Obama’s government said, for an unbelievable minor technicality, “No drilling for you, in the leases you bought. Oh, and we’re keeping the money. Thanks for playing!”

    I suspect the same will happen this time. This is an administration of outright THIEVES.

  • Granny Smith

    Do notice that he is speaking ONLY of increasing the number of oil leases. Not a single word about expediting the permits he has been holding up since the day he took office to actually allow extraction of the oil!

    Pure Obama Bunk & Hokum, Smoke & Mirrors. . . . .

    Jim, a cleanup is evidently needed for comment #30 in the “smart grid” thread.


    And from a regular, no less. Hey folks, how about you stop voicing, on Jim Hoft’s site, your wishes for leaders to be assassinated.

    You want to do that s**t, GO MAKE YOUR OWN DAMN BLOG, RETARDS.

    “DEEP DRILLING” (without a permit) into Barry’s history, has been going on for the past few years. And the results yielded will be in Corsi’s book, set for release Tuesday – http://www.BirtherReport.com

    Just in time to deliver lower gas prices for primary season.

    What an insulting human being he is.
    Obama plays politics with everything. How many people on fixed incomes do you think were suffering this past winter as the price of home heating oil Sky Rocketed?

    We need to make sure it’s not forgotten.

  • Mr. Potato Head

    He’s opening up drilling for one reason only: Sarah Palin.

  • Bobbi

    Well, yesterday, the House approved bill that will “reverse Pres Obama’s Moratorium on drilling” which will force the Dept of Interior to issue leases. I believe it was sponsored
    Rep Doc Hastings ( R Wa). So, Obama is just trying to minimize the damage to his ego. The vote was something like 243-173

    Last week’s truth was that having more supply would not bring down prices. This week’s truth is that it was those greedy oil companies who were sitting on those leases hoping for higher prices and we are going to stick it to them by opening up some new area to drill in.

    All this is yet another shining example of what happens when a person’s reality is plastic and malleable. The truth is just what a person wants to believe at any given moment. If this was just a person’s private living hell inside their own mind that would be one thing, but when such a person is in control of our national energy policy, we can see what destruction of wealth and liberty it causes.

    Drill,maybe, Drill?

  • ahem

    Bobbi’s got it, If he’s talking like this–trying to look like he supports something he’s dead set against– can you imagine how bad his re-election prospects must be looking from inside the White House?

    And, yes, Palin is standing in the wings. So they’re still terrified of her–and justifiably so.

    If Palin declares, everyone jump on the wagon, because it’ll mean a sure win. No ifs, ands or buts. Obama’s out.

  • nj in fl

    Right on bobbi and ahem.

    This thing by Odinga is of course BS, but there’s no way Dear Leader can deflect the fact that hard core Palin mojo is starting to re-ignite, especially in the blogosphere, despite every dirty trick in the book by the evil Dim goons.

  • Obama the liar


    NYT 2010: Obama oil plan ‘to open vast expanses of water along Atlantic coastline, eastern Gulf of Mexico, north coast of Alaska’…

    NYT 2011: Obama oil plan ‘expands drilling in Alaska and prospect of new exploration off Atlantic coast’…

    “Of course, with Obama, we’ll believe it when we see it”

    Yes, indeed, this crew couldn’t tell the truth if their lives depended on it. Joe Wilson was so right, “You lie!”

    He said all this about a year ago, and absolutely nothing happened. But Brazil drills on.

  • Swifty

    As usual, his promises have an early expiration date.

  • RefudiateObama2012

    I’ll be shocked if we don’t see a FB post from SP. She’ll slice and dice him on his hollow rhetoric.

  • bobdog

    Talk’s cheap, and getting cheaper by the minute. You would think he’d be papering oil companies over with permits to reopen the Gulf, what with the exigencies of the upcoming election and all. It’s going to happen anyway once he’s voted out of office, and in the meantime, maybe the folks in New Orleans could get back to work and just maybe buy their kids some food with their own money instead of being forced to beg for it from the federal government. What the blazes is that man thinking, anyway? What about “obvious” confuses him so?

  • bobdog

    Sorry to pile on like this, but this came to mind:

    Obama says, “We can’t drill our way out of the problem.”

    It begs the question whether you can bullsh*t your way out of a problem, Mr. President.

    The devil made me say that. He’s ticked off, too.
