Winning the Future

With gas at $3.50 a gallon and higher.

Under my plan, electricity rates with necessarily skyrocket.

Higher gas prices! Must. Credit. Obama!

I can’t believe I’ve ragged on his inability to fulfill those campaign promises.

The real reasons are three-fold, with unrest in the middle east being the least of the three.

1) Devaluation of the dollar. The incessant printing of money by this administration began the rise of gas prices months long before the middle east blew up. I’m no Alan Greenspan, but I can figure out that if oil prices are tied to the dollar, and you print more dollars, the oil price will go up, up, up.

2) An energy policy that calls for less drilling for oil at home, not more.

3) Unrest in the middle east.

I just want to make sure that Obama gets FULL credit for this, because if you listen to the media you’d think that it was little old Libya (Libia – ha ha ha) that did this too us. Or Egypt. Egypt – no gas. Libya – doesn’t make the top ten oil producers for the US.

Is Obama willing to help us out going forward? Obviously not.

Despite everything that energy companies have done to devise advanced containment systems, Salazar is unwilling to issue a single new permit. Systems constructed by the nonprofit Marine Well Containment Company and other entities are now able to handle a flow equal or greater than that experienced during the Deepwater Horizon accident last summer. But that’s not enough for Salazar, who stated that even the most advanced systems have “limitations on water depth and barrel-per-day containment capacity.”

Why, you ask? Because, he won. And he wants to win again.

So why no permits for new drilling? It appears that the Obama administration is more interested in kowtowing to environmental donors in advance of the 2012 election than it is in controlling energy prices. Even with a federal court order to decide on new drilling in the Gulf by March 20, the Obama administration remains obdurate.

On the “Obama plan”, America see see $12 a gallon of gas by 2020.

At $12 a gallon, we won’t be driving around much in large SUVs or in small SUVs, either. Nor will we be enjoying cheap air fares or discounted cruises. The cost of transporting goods will triple, as will the cost of heating homes, schools, and offices. And those who think that solar and wind will take the place of fossil fuels are sadly mistaken.

As Maxwell points out, solar energy now supplies one tenth of one percent of America’s energy needs. Even with massive subsidies — the kind of subsidies that have already bankrupted the Spanish economy — solar and wind will never supply more than a small percentage of America’s energy needs. Since Obama, through EPA restrictions, is busy sabotaging coal and natural gas as well, and since America has no serious nuclear program underway, we are left with nothing.

We can heat our homes with unicorn farts!

Only a president who is extraordinarily stupid would fail to see this. Conclusion: Obama is either extraordinarily stupid, or he is willing to trade America’s national security for the support of environmentalist donors who are key to his re-election. Whichever it is, we’re in trouble.

So, stupid or evil? Aaron Gee goes with stupid.

Some commentators question if these actions are some part of a master plan to raise gasoline prices to make other forms of energy competitive. The problem with that analysis is that it assumes that President Obama understands the economics of his decisions. Based on his public arguments for health care reform, green energy, and unemployment, I have to assume that the President just doesn’t understand the consequences of his actions. He is an idealist and will not be swayed by the reality on the ground until that reality effects his re-election chances or the consequences get so dire that they can be no longer ignored (See tax cuts, Guantanamo, predator drones, etc).

So … stupid or evil? Discuss.

And “evil” is an apt term, I believe, when you will do just about anything for power. Power that affects the lives of everyone in America. If Obama isn’t stupid, and he is doing this on purpose … then, yes, he is evil.

    Neither. He’s ignorant. We all knew he did not have the experience for the position he was exalted to by the Make Believe Media. It is the media and the left (BIRM) who are evil. They were willing to put an incompetent man into the position of the most powerful person in the world because he is half black. His race trumped our need for a competent leader.

    That right THERE is pure evil. Obama? He’s just a community organizer, and part time adjunct law professor. He can’t help it that he is ignorant of the world. I’d bet his college transcripts are being kept secret to hide his mediocrity.

    I dunno. I mean, he not only has to be ignorant, but also intentionally dense to not see how things are working out. Is it evil when someone realizes that they are driving the car off the cliff, and decides to be just as determined rather than admit error?

    I honestly see nothing but evil in his energy policies.

    Shit, Mao wasn’t evil either in a sense. He just had a vision.

    At this point, his driving toward the 2012 election is nothing but pure power lust. He *can’t* think he’s good at it.
