Energy Policy: President Obama says the oil disaster proves the need to get off fossil fuels. But before we save the planet, let's save the Gulf and stop exploiting crises to deny America the energy it needs.
Saving the planet is nice, but just how do we plug the hole again? With an abundance of hand gestures, the president didn't really say in his speech Tuesday night. He did say fossil fuels were bad and green energy is good, but the people of the Gulf states don't need wind turbines right now.
Contrary to Obama's assertions, our "addiction" to foreign oil no more caused the Deepwater Horizon oil spill than any addiction to nuclear energy caused the reactor accident at Three Mile Island.
If we're addicted to anything, it's energy in all its forms. We also are addicted to jobs and economic growth, and nothing in the speech offered either. Instead we were told we have to forgo fossil fuels because they're dangerous the same reason given after TMI to stop expanding clean and safe nuclear energy.
Never mind the dead zones for aquatic life in the Gulf of Mexico caused by agricultural runoff from the accelerated farming of corn to feed the mandated use of ethanol. Never mind the rain forests cleared worldwide to grow biofuel crops. Or the birds that will never be soaked in oil because they've been sliced and diced by wind turbines.
The irony is that if the incident at Three Mile Island had not similarly been exploited by environmentalists, we might not be so dependent on fossil fuels today. We'd have electricity for all those electric cars as billions of tons of carbon dioxide never entered the atmosphere.

He’s a liar.
"You had your chance to invest in NALCO and ConEd
and Corexits. But you blew it.
So now you are stuck with toxic dispersants for your childrens salad dressing and air,
conveniently made by Brazil, Russia, India, China and Indonesia.
You stupid American dhimmis, if my death panels dont kill you,
we will tax each of your breaths with our patent No. 6904336
on Carbon Credits held by . Fannie Mae, and kept secret by the DNC,
for my masters in Pakeeestan, Saudi Arabia and the other 57 states."
The oil disaster proves that this Administration is utterly incompetent in dealing with even the most mundane decisions of governance and executive leadership.

And by similar logic since we have automobile accidents we should ban all cars and use bicycles instead!!
Hey this IS the mindset of this 0Bama regime!!
more and more i read about this..Im starting to seriously doubt anyones ability to stop this gusher at all. Its apparently far far worse than they are letting on.
He also said that the Obama administration would not release to congress the oil rig safety report conducted 10 days before spill. It gave the rig a passing grade. Congress is asking for the report.
Read this, if you haven’t already. The Apocalypse speaks of 1/3 of the sea dying. This just might accomplish that:
Mark my words: Cap & Trade, if passed, will cause a revolt. This is enslavement, pure and simple.
