Skip to comments.Obama's Dilemma- Gas Prices v Environmentalists! Dick Morris TV: Lunch ALERT! (video)

The environmentalists have flipped out! They are sitting in at the White House to protest new energy sources like oil sands and demanding new regulations on power plants and industry. If Obama gives in, it means higher gas prices. If not, he loses their support
Democrats created the environmentalist monster, now they can’t control it. Watch for a night of the long knives kind of event within the Democrat party. The environmentalists and the unions can no longer ignore the fact that they are at cross purposes.
Environmental regulations are being used, not to assure clean air and water, but to bludgeon those entrepreneurs that generate the revenues that make the clean air and water possible.
Talk about cognitive dissonance.
Is it just me, or is that American flag and that patriotic music a mismatch with Dick Morris?
Awwww, HOW can you say that?
I just want to climb in his lap.
Back when Hitler was building his movement he used a group called the Brown Shirts as his muscle. A rather crude and uncouth group, they were physically eliminated by the SS after Hitler attained power. The problem for the DNC is that every group within their taker’s coalition (greens, labor, Black Caucus types, La Raza, gays etc.) are ‘muscle’ for the Left. It worked just fine in an era of expanding government but they will soon be fighting each other over the crumbs.
The Green wing of the Democrat Party proves that the Left really do not care about the poor.
It is a fact that the higher the price of fuel rises the more poor people die.
IF the poor can not afford to buy fuel to heat or cool their homes they will die. If they can not buy fuel to put in their car or buy transportation of other kinds because the price is too high they will miss doctors appointments or not be able to get to the pharmacy and they will die prematurely of illness.
Cheap fuel is what drives the economic engine of capitalism. Cheap fuel makes it possible to bring affordable products to market. Cheap fuel creates jobs. If Obama wants to win the election in 2012 he should do everything possible to drill, drill, drill.
