FEDERAL WAY, Wash. Newt Gingrich has been hitting Obamas energy speech since the president delivered it Thursday, calling the speech funny enough to be on SNL and something worthy of Leno or Letterman.
Gingrichs biggest talking point about Obamas speech attacks the president for his embrace of investments in biofuels such as those made from algae.
He is referring to a point in Obamas speech when the president said, Were making new investments in the development of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel thats actually made from a plant-like substance known as algae.
Believe it or not, we could replace up to 17% of the oil we import for transportation with this fuel that we can grow right here in America, Obama said.
On Thursday night, Gingrich mocked the presidents speech in front of an Idaho crowd, by suggesting that he should take a bottle of algae with him and go around and we can have the Obama solution.
And maybe what we ought to do at Newt.org is we ought to get t-shirts that say You choose. Gingrich went on to suggest the slogans, You have Newt: Drill here, Drill Now, Pay Less. You have Obama: Have Algae, Pay More, Be Weird.
Gingrich himself has taken a lot of flack on the campaign trail this year for presenting ideas that the other candidates have called grandiose and zany.

And the understatement of the day award goes to...
Does this mean that Obama’s new nickname is “Weird Algae”?
Same as Solyndra, all over again —some of the bigger outfits doing the research are big Obama contributors. They’re making the Navy buy this fuel, which is maybe 700% as expensive as the genuine stuff.
The US Navy is about to —or just did— do a whole exercise just off of this algae fuel.
Most of the outfits doing the research are just south of San Francisco, and in Silicon Valley.
This is just money-laundering, basically.
And, there are enough Obama bots to believe that BS.
US Navy carriers run on CHICKEN FAT and algae...?!
Yes, it does sound made-up:
Didn’t Algae invent the Internet?
I’m positive SNL will do a skit on this! (rolling eyes)
Hint: The LIE in the woodpile is when Bammy tells us we can grow enough algae to fuel America. We have not got that much phosphate and still have enough to grow food.
Another LIE from the Long Legged Mack Daddy of Lies.
I'll bet their cronies got into the business about 3 years ago.
The process for converting algae to fuel has actually been demonstrated to work.
It’s not, however, available on a large scale.
Trying to get along without pumping crude oil out of the ground here in the short term is idiotic.
Well, there is that spirulina stuff, so after we make ourselves some gas, we can eat the leftovers.
Change “Algae” to “Pond Scum” and I’m in!:)
Obama's algae machine fueld by pond scum
No, but he'd like you to release his shakras, if you wouldn't mind.
The Libs are always for energy sources that don’t work or won’t be available for 20 years...
