We Need More Energy, Says Barry. Let’s Ban Drilling, Says Interior Nominee

For those who watched Barry’s speech (I’ll admit, I only caught a little bit, couldn’t take the lies and BS, and his um’s and ah’s mess up my speech patterns, which I kinda need for my job, but, I did see this part), memba this?

The fact is, our economy did not fall into decline overnight. Nor did all of our problems begin when the housing market collapsed or the stock market sank.  We have known for decades that our survival depends on finding new sources of energy.  Yet we import more oil today than ever before….

He mentions energy 14 times during his missive (Nancy Pelosi, by contrast, blinked 923,000 times), wanting some pie in the sky “a windmill in every driveway and solar power in every pot if only we spend trillions while somehow reducing the deficit that is all Booooosh’s fault” type. Yet….

President-elect Barack Obama’s secretary of the interior nominee, Sen. Ken Salazar (D-Colo.), said he will consider restoring parts of an expired federal ban on offshore oil drilling, but told CNSNews.com that he has “no idea” how much of the drilling restrictions should be reimposed.

not to mention

Back in September, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), told CNSNews.com that restoring the ban on new offshore oil drilling leases “will be a top priority for discussion” in the Congress in 2009.

So, as gas prices creep up, which means virtually all prices will creep up, Obama and the dems want to make sure we keep importing around 70% of the oil we need. Because hooking a unicorn up to a generator isn’t going to happen toot sweet, ya know.

    Increased oil production here in the USA whether inshore, offshore, or underground will NOT make a substantial impact on percentage of imported oil Teach as a conservative do you believe that some of our oil should be set aside for future generations ?

    Comrade In Chief Barack HuSSein Obama could have dropped his trousers, squatted, and airdropped a dump, and the orgasmic euphoric swiss mocha loving Obamaites would have cheered until they passed out, a la ELVIS / Lyin’ King! They CNNistas would have reported that his crap smelled like peaches! “Come on… come on…come on and TOUCH me Barack….”

    Clarence seems to have been deeply affected by the pic of Obama shirtless in Hawaii
