US President Barack Obama Thursday mocked Republican foes who snub his alternative energy plans, comparing them to those who questioned the revolutionary rise of television and automobiles.
In his most sarcastic and cutting campaign mode, Obama slammed his rivals as "naysayers" who were stuck in the past, doubling down on his energy policy despite claims from Republican candidates that it is a miserable failure.
Obama strongly defended his plans to make America a leader in new energy sources like biofuels, and wind power and solar power, and rebuked Republicans for opposing his plans to cut subsidies to profit cranking oil producers.
"America uses more than 20 percent of the world's oil. If we drilled every square inch of this country ... we would still have only two percent of the world's known oil reserves."

Somebody please explain to Zero and his zombies that it is not reserves, but resources that is the future. The USA ranks at the top of the world in resources:
Assessment of In-Place Oil Shale Resources of the Green River Formation, Greater Green River Basin in Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah
“Total in-place resources are estimated at 1.44 trillion barrels of oil”
Thats TRILLIONS of barrels. Enough to bring back the V-8.
global warming, pollution, green energy...
none of these is the core issue behind what he’s doing.
destroying capitalism and replacing it with communism is.
This "leader in new energy sources" is like aspiring to be the leader in lead-weighted running shoes...
Bush is not POTUS, Obama has been for 3+ energy. Voters can see that green energy has not lowered their energy costs as Dems led them to believe in would in 2007.
To sell this scam again Obama has to make you believe that Bush was POTUS through 2011 and Obama mjust took office so these ideas are all new never been tried, except maybe Spain.
One of the reasons voters were suckered by green energy in 2007 was they believed ending wars and cutting military costs would result from us not having to use oil anymore and green energy instead, (not kidding), but with Obama in office 3+ years with rising gas prices and still at war that scam doesn't work anymore.
To date, every single one of his green energy initiatives has failed. Every single one.
“” If alternative energy is the answer, the market will welcome it. GOVERNMENT was not responsible for automobiles or television.””
Folks, we have a WINNER!!
” Prompter on the ground
Prompter on the ground
You lookin like a fool
With your Prompter on de ground”
Failed? What do you mean by “failed”?
Every one of his green energy initiatives
1) drained the treasury
2) transferred taxpayer dollars to democRat donors
