Liberals Want to Continue Our Crippling Dependence on Foreign Energy
IBD/The Lid ^ | 8/17/09 | The Lid

When he was trying to shove the Porkulus bill down the throats of the American people the POTUS kept repeating a message such as this:

Millions more Americans will lose their jobs. Homes will be lost. Families will go without health care. Our crippling dependence on foreign oil will continue. That is the price of inaction.

Our crippling dependence on foreign oil??? One of his first actions as President was to cancel land leases that would allow drilling off of Utah. It is the Democrats who are increasing our dependence on foreign Oil.

New York State fiscal status is not far behind California, if fact it might even surpass the Golden State because the nicest thing said about the NY Legislature recently is that they are a bunch of Clowns.

Didnt he just loan a Billion Dollars to Brazil so they could drill offshore, while ignoring drilling here—in our country.

I just don’t underatsnd the liberals on energy issues.

They say that we are too reliant on foreign oil but,

they are against more domestic oil drilling
They are against nuclear power
They are against more coal mining, or development of the “clean coal” technology

They are against developing the oil shale fields
They are against more hydro electric development
They are against building more oil refineries
They are against just about anything that could chip away at our dependence on foreign oil.

The only things they favor are solar energy and windmills and geo thermal.

Their support of electric cars is counter productive, because if we see millions of electric cars sold in the next few years, most will be plugged in to recharge with electricity generated from “dirty” fossil fuel based power plants. It would increase the demand for electricity from those allegedly evil power plants.

Didn’t Al Gore once say that young people should go protest and block off construction sites for coal fired power plants?

He doesn’t have to worry because he buys carbon credits.

Remember...liberals consist of at least two sectors: idealistic useful idiots and those who would use them for nefarious goals.

The Arabs are paying them to oppose drilling in our country. What politician could possibly turn down money from an Arab? What they are doing just makes no sense. This is my opinion.
