Palin Was Right: 'Drill, Baby, Drill!'
Like the rooster that takes credit for the sunrise, President Barack “You Didn’t Build That” Obama woke up the other day and decided to take credit for another thing he had nothing to do with. The president who said that companies like Solyndra were the hallmark of a future in which workers drove Chevy Volts, predicted that manufacturing jobs of the past could not be brought back, not only took credit for an economy he didn’t build, but also for the energy boom he opposed which is fueling it....Back in 2012, geologist Barack Obama, poster child for the “peak oil” crowd, told us that calling for increased production as Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin did. by increased drilling – "drill, baby, drill," she called it -- was not a plan, but rather "a bumper sticker." Obama assured us, "You know, we can't just drill our way to lower gas prices,"... Well we have, just as those manufacturing jobs that weren’t coming back have come back. So now Obama would have us forget what he said about the fuels of the past, as he massaged his ego one more time:
Former President Barack Obama on Tuesday took credit for booming U.S. oil and gas production, telling investors to "say thank you" to him.Sorry, Barack, but the man who blocked the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines doesn’t get to take credit for the oil that soon will be running through both. Nor is the president who opposed two technologies developed by private industry, fracking and horizontal drilling, get to take credit for the abundance hey have produced...Then there are the dumb as** politicians and especially the governor of NYS refusing to take advantage of the gas deposits and some good paying jobs. Maybe even lower taxes....Yeh...right...
Obama fought the oil and gas industry tooth and nail, every and any way that he could in an attempt to destroy the Coal industry. They fought him and won. No better example of Obama being a deluded narcissist. He was so adamant about getting rid of oil back during his presidency, it's really striking. Plus, nary a word is heard about the problems of windmills and birds out west. Not THAT is significant environmental damage.
Yet two years after leaving office Obama has become the ultimate multi-millionaire. Notice the way Obama has visibly aging, after listening to his recent drug-addled rambles about people with mommy issues, I think he will shuffle off his mortal coil far earlier than most ex-presidents.
Still refusing to except his failed legacy this is the last article I hope to read about that duplicitous, egocentric, hypocritical, jug eared no account. May he and that lumbering beast that follows him around become fading memories.
