Skip to comments.President Obama to Visit an Oil Field!! (What a joke)
Posted on 03/19/2012 2:42:18 PM PDT by Signalman
With gasoline prices marching north, President Obama next week will take a break from worshipping the sun and putting his finger to the wind when he actually highlights energy projects that provide lots of energy.
The White House is desperate to repair the damage being done to Obamas campaign by the price at the pump, and aides have suddenly begun portraying him as a great apostle of oil and gas drilling.
In what may go down as one of the worst political blunders of his presidency, Obama late last year bowed to environmentalists pressure and rejected the Keystone pipelines route through part of Nebraska, delaying by at least a year a major new source of oil just as gasoline prices started going through the roof.
Wednesday, hell be in Carlsbad, New Mexico to inspect oil and gas production fields located on federal lands.
Obama will be in Oklahoma Thursday yes, Oklahoma to discuss his Administrations commitment to improving and supporting the infrastructure that helps us leverage our domestic resources, the White House said.
I assume these are code words for the infrastructure to get fossil fuels out of the ground, since he sure aint going to Oklahoma for votes. Hes more likely to strike oil.
According to ABC News, Obama will staging a photo op in Cushing, Oklahoma, which is on the Keystone pipeline projects southern route, of which the administration approves.
Of course, the two day trip also features a solar facility and a meeting with people conducting some of the countrys most advanced energy-related research and development.
But the White House is clearly eager to show that Obama loves the non-advanced stuff too, since thats what the country is going to be running on for the foreseeable future.
“Putting his finger to the wind?”...
...After pulling it out of his @$$...?
He was more suited to Disneyland or a Alice in Wonderland themed party.
I seriously doubt he will be on a federal lease.
He won’t be among friends. Everybody I know in the oil bidness despises his sorry ass.
bumping and pinging
"....better remove all the coconuts"
I have in my mind an image, of Newt, standing next to a drilling rig, saying, This, Mr President, is a drilling rig.
Another, standing next to a gas pump, with a sign saying 2.50/gal...a gal of Newt gas pretend sign, IOW.
Now look at this leftwing nut.
Reacting much, Barack???
Cameron gave him a lot of heat over "putting his boot to the neck" of BP way back then. I found a scathing article and should have posted it to any Keystone thread. I'll go look for it.
“improving and supporting the infrastructure that helps us leverage our domestic resources”
Whatever that gibberish gobbledygook is supposed to mean.
He probably does think oil fields are for growing coconut oil trees.
His second Muslim father made his money in oil.
Hopefully the severe weather sticks around for long enough to give him an appropriate welcome. A little fear of God in Barry would be a good thing.
I hope the roughnecks give him a piece of their mind.
He’ll look like Michael Dukakis driving a tank or John Fn Kerry in a bunny suit at a nuke.
Newt should plan to visit the same local on the same hour.
will he shed a tear while on camera?
LOL Oklahoma is a state where ethanol is NOT required.
It WILL be on a federal lease - no doubt the actual one is confidential. However, I bet a bunch of his enviro-baddies will show up to tell him how terrible the state oil and gas agency is operating now that Richardson is gone and Republican governor Martinez has kicked them out of the power positions.
There might be opportunities here. Depleted well, pipe still in place, skinny stick of a body. What diameter is the piping for an oil well?
How many here noted the administrations intention to strongly review oil well drilling contracts on private property? The communists may have found a way of stopping drilling on private property.
I would love to meet the person who advises him on stuff like this and ask one question....Is it your intent to make this man look dumber every day? If so, then you’re definitely earning your money.
My hometown is at the red-hot center of the Bakken play.
I would love to take him into a bar “just for a quick one,” as they say.
Of course I would duck back out and drive like hell as soon as he was inside, so as not to be arrested for abetting what would most certainly happen next.
It would be quick, all right.
i have to add one more thing, he’s doing this in arguably, the most conservative state in the country. what a moron.
Is the oil field on federal land? Or safely in private hands?
His next takeover target.
Newt is on the offensive again, pummeling Obama, who backpedals once more, struggling to regain his balance,....
Meanwhile in row 26, Mitt and Rick, the yapping shrimpettes, fight over the bag of popcorn.
Most likely bringing padlocks and a bunch of SEIU thugs to shutdown and secure the oilfield.
A real prince of fossil fuels would swim the La Brea tar pits.
