Joe Kennedy III calls for ending ‘cheap oil’
The Daily Caller ^ | 18 Apr 2012 | Christopher Bedford

Posted on 04/18/2012 6:19:24 AM PDT by Rummyfan

As gas prices continue to soar around the country, Joe Kennedy III, the Democratic candidate for Rep. Barney Frank’s seat, wrote an online letter to supporters calling for an end to “cheap oil.”

“Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama — they’ve all talked about the same thing: the need to wean ourselves off our debilitating dependence on foreign oil,” Kennedy wrote.

“The cycle that allows cheap oil to trump tough choices has to stop,” he continued. “Forty years is enough.”

We cannot have cheap oil, the wealthy Kennedy declares!

As for me, I wouldn't go within a mile of Barney Frank's seat!

Says the spoiled brat who has lived his entire life off the wealth accumulated by his whiskey running great-grandfather and the taxpaying citizens of The United States Of America.

Any state that votes for a Kennedy should get no more oil from the producing states. This corrupt family should be able to power their states with their hot air and other noxious fumes.

Dear Mr. (inherited) 1%er Joe:

$100/bbl is not cheap.

You are obviously not qualified to comment on economics.

The Kennedys own TWO oil companies. Mokeen and Kenoil. They are in a trust called the Arctic Royalty Limited Partnership. Don’t let the name fool you. They are in five southern states. The old man got poor land owners to sign over the mineral rights.

Conservative headline writers could have lots of fun with this race.

“Kennedy has his eye on Frank's seat.”

“Kennedy pulls out all stops for Frank's seat”

“Team Kennedy internal polls on Frank's seat.”

Kennedys have their heads up their butts so far they have to view the world from inside their own belly-buttons.

And just when I think my tagline is no longer relevant, another of their mindless spawn offers another example of their idiocy.

Wealthy Uncle Ted (The Swimmer) just about destroyed our culture while living like a king, untouched by the destruction his liberal policies wrought.

Now Joe No. 3 wants to help Obama finish off the economy and drive the rest of us into unheated tenements travelling on the Shoe-Leather Express.

Leftists like Kennedy and Obama won’t be content until they have turned white America into a duplicate of Communist Russia circa 1950.

$100/bbl is not cheap.

Historically speaking, oil is fairly inexpensive. The problem is the eroding value of the dollar.

cheap oil we can afford - it is this government we can’t. We need to wean our selves off off of big government.

we cannot have cheap oil

unless it is donated by Hugo Chavez

so a Kennedy can “donate” it to stupid people

and pay himself and his wife $1 million to manage the “nonprofit”

Each successive generation of Kennedy gets exponentially stupider and stupider. In a just world, this post alone would mean a landslide victory for Sean Bielat.

I recognize the issue of inflation over the last 45 years, but $4 gasoline helped kill off the real estate market recently.

Didn’t take him long to jump the shark. Sean Beilat needs donations to win this race.

Uh, Barney's district is in Massachusetts. They use oil heat to keep warm. This is a Democrat actually campaigning on the idea that he'd like for his constituents to freeze to death in the dark.

They are all truly mad.

Ironic, isn’t it, that Joseph Kennedy II founded Citizens Energy in 1979 on the premise that “everyone deserves life’s basic necessities, like a warm home and affordable heat.”

I’m for ending crooked jet setting hacks and their fake “non-profit organizations”: Citizens Energy.paid Joe Kennedy $708,198 in 2010 at the so-called nonprofit. Mrs. Joseph P. Kennedy II, also known as Beth was: $261,825.

Total annual grab for these limousine liberal parasites: $970,023.

Kennedy literally travels in a limo on your dime,

This is typical Kennedy deception. Every member of the family shares in royalties from oil leases they bought up in the southern states. They are not what the press makes them out to be.

“Furthermore,” Joe Kennedy III continued, “Happiness is something that Americans have experienced far too long! It is time for Americans to be miserable. Food should be denied to all Americans, as well as water. Sleep should not be permitted. Clothing should be removed from all Americans, and they should be crowded into freezing states during the winter, while naked. American infants should be lanced with red-hot needles. Health care should consist of a single bullet to the forehead. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! VOTE FOR ME!”

Er...ugh....huh....umm....Psss, Joe, baby....breaking news... oil is not cheap. Tell your aid to talk to your secretary and your secretary to your accountant, your accountant to talk to your butler to talk to your chauffeur, your chauffeur talk to your garage-man. Perhaps the garage-man will pass on how much he has to put on your gas credit card to fill your Beamer, SUV, Jeep, Mercedes and limos. Perhaps your marina operator will let your yacht captain know how much those twin GMC’s are sucking up.
