Sarah Palin Rips Obama For His “Unbelievable Rhetoric” on Energy Production
Former Governer Sarah Palin ripped President Obama today for his “unbelievable rhetoric” on American energy production. While the president trots out another energy proposal, at the same time he continues his war on domestic production.
From her Facebook Page:
FLASHBACK: What We Were Saying One Year Ago About Obama’s Failed Energy Policy
It’s unbelievable (literally) the rhetoric coming from President Obama today. This is coming from he who is manipulating the U.S. energy supply. President Obama is once again giving lip service to a “new energy proposal”; but let’s remember the last time he trotted out a “new energy proposal” – nearly a year ago to the day. The main difference is today we have $4 a gallon gas in some places in the country. This is no accident. This administration is not a passive observer to the trends that have inflated oil prices to dangerous levels. His war on domestic oil and gas exploration and production has caused us pain at the pump, endangered our already sluggish economic recovery, and threatened our national security. Through a process of what candidate Obama once called “gradual adjustment,” American consumers have seen prices at the pump rise 67 percent since he took office. Meanwhile, the vast undeveloped reserves that could help to keep prices at the pump affordable remain locked up because of President Obama’s deliberate unwillingness to drill here and drill now. We’re subsidizing offshore drilling in Brazil and purchasing energy from them, instead of drilling ourselves and keeping those dollars circulating in our own economy to generate jobs here. The President said today, “There are no quick fixes.” He’s been in office for nearly three years now, and he’s about to launch his $1 billion re-election campaign. When can we expect any “fixes” from him? How high does the price of energy have to go?
So, here’s a little flashback to what I wrote on March 31, 2010, at National Review Online’s The Corner:
Minority Leader Pelosi also released a ridiculous statement today following the president’s speech supporting his green energy plans.
What’s really sad is how the lapdog media eats up his ridiculous energy plans that will continue to devastate this nation’s economy.
