Skip to comments.Obama to visit four states for damage control on energy issues
Posted on 03/21/2012 9:50:23 AM PDT by tobyhill
President Obama hits the road this week to try to shake off two persistent political liabilities Keystone XL and Solyndra and their ongoing damage to his re-election hopes.
Instead of shying away from these two political hot potatoes, Mr. Obama seems determined to try to change the publics mind about them or at least explain how they fit into his stated all of the above approach to energy.
It wont be an easy task, especially with voters worried that rising gas prices could thwart the economic recovery and political opponents charging that Mr. Obama is more committed to developing clean-energy alternatives in the long term than trying to expand drilling and increase supply immediately.
The president on Wednesday and Thursday will travel to three presidential battleground states Nevada, New Mexico, and Ohio as well as the Republican stronghold of Oklahoma.
He will begin his tour in Nevada, looking to undo some of the damage created by Solyndra, the now-bankrupt California solar company that got $535 million in Energy Department loan guarantees from the administration.

WTF is going on this country! ! ! !
STFU Barack - GO THE F AWAY!!!!!
Bamma Oops is having trouble deciding where to speak in NM. Yesterday the local news announced Barry was going to speak in Carlsbad, NM, which has a huge hole in the ground (The Caverns).
Now, the news says he will speak in Artesia, which is home to much oil and gas companies. But Artesia has a bunch of red neck Texans. And NM is an open carry state and I’m not talking about beer.
I’m waiting to hear another change in his NM speaking tour. Probably will end up in Santa Fe, home of Shirley MacLaine and Costner.
Or they’ll announce they really meant to say he would speak in Carlsbad, CA, not NM.
O Ceasar, beware the Ides of March. DO NOT JOURNEY TO ROME!
Nah. Send the jackalope over to Taos; he can do peyote with the granolas, methers, and new age freaks. Birds of a feather, and all. Mental vacuity all the way ‘round.
More ‘clarification’ for the electorate that are just too stupid to understand OweBama’s so-called brilliance. Us rubes just don’t get it!
