Skip to comments.Joe Kennedy III calls for ending ‘cheap oil’
Posted on 04/18/2012 2:07:53 PM PDT by Timber Rattler
As gas prices continue to soar around the country, Joe Kennedy III, the Democratic candidate for Rep. Barney Franks seat, wrote an online letter to supporters calling for an end to cheap oil.
Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama theyve 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.

I’d prefer to end the Kennedy scum.
Sounds like an uphill campaign strategy. I like it.
Here’s where he called for ending cheap oil earlier today:
Mission accomplished, and he’s not even in office yet.
Let me know when you have something that can replace all the uses of oil at a similar cost and I might consider it.
Even Bostonians will not agree with this slime. Hopefully they are smart enough to hear his message. Second thought the are stupid liberals.
Well good, he said it twice then for more people to see it.
Now get lost.
Joe will never have to live with the real consequences of the socialist society his ilk create.
Yes, it's obvious to everyone how your failure to search makes me the bad guy.
I'll try to search more in the future.
Duh. Another Kennedy proves they slept through Economics 101. We use oil BECAUSE it is cheap and effective...
I am guessing that the Kennedy’s are going to get out of the oil business then since it is so bad for the country. They own Arctic Royalty Limited Partnership, which consists of two drilling companies Kenoil and Mokeen oil.
They all have real jobs so that the loss of tax free royalty money from exiting oil won’t be a bother.
I agree, we should ween ourselves off of cheap oil and convert our country to rubber band energy technology.
Let the Chinese suffer with oil while we run our country peacefully on rubber bands.
Oil bad, rubber bands good.
Well, you just go right on ahead and do that.
Guy who’s been here five months explains how we do things to a guy who’s been here ten years.
Makes sense, right?
who doesn't know what it is like to struggle and just get by...
never had to earn a cent in his life...just lived off the family trust funds...
he can take his political campaign and shove it where the sun doesn't shine..I hope the day comes he will know financial struggle..his family has suffered personal losses, but there has always been plenty of bucks to ease their pain.
FUJK3 and the rest of your crime family.
I take note that almost all these type idiots are rich and a great many are trust fund asshats.
When individuals are wealthy, most could care less about high fuel prices, let the lesser hoi polis eat cake.
Somebody has to do it.
Lord only knows how we muddled along before.
No dimocRAT in this country has ANY standing to lecture ANYONE on making “tough choices”. They won’t even vote on a budget!!!! “Evil hypocrite” just doesn’t quite capture the essense of the depravity of dimocRATs these days.
You mean like pinging the guy whom you're zinging?

You should consider reading through the Free Republic guidelines and others of the Admin Moderator Lecture Series.
This is great, they should campaign on this, explaining in detail how they can drive the price of gas up over $10/gallon.
What's he got to do with it?
When something is posted prior to 8AM California time, has it really been posted? A lot of us here in the west were in bed. When I first get to my browser I don’t go scrolling back to where I left off. It wasn’t in either my Breaking News or Front Page side bars.
I’m thankful he reposted. I wouldn’t have seen it otherwise.
Joe “I have no concept of the lives of the Peons” Kennedy III is richer than opossum shite; he hasn’t a care in the world. I, on the other hand, feel like I need a cigarette after each trip to the gas station.
You obviously were referring to Timber Rattler as the "guy who's been here five months." It is common courtesy to ping people about whom you are posting -- as I would expect a 1998 registrant to know and observe, particularly when preaching about FR traditions and rules.
‘Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama theyve all talked about the same thing: the need to wean ourselves off our debilitating dependence on foreign oil, Kennedy wrote.’
I agree. So drill, baby drill here in the U.S. now.
And here comes pogo101 to explain: "hey, don't you know the proper rules of discourse, you've got to go over and tell that citizen that you said something about him to the guy sitting next to you?"
I guess Steely Tom doesn’t see anything rude about talking about someone behind their back, so here goes . . . :)
Hey, if you’re too ignorant to know the rules and common courtesies after 14 years, or too rude to observe them, then hey: It’s nice NOT knowing you, either way. Ta ta.
Be sure to reply. I just won’t be reading it.
Please commend to my attention any rule or tradition I "preached about."
I don't believe you! Ha ha, LOL!
Joe Kennedy wants to have private citizens sue factories and power plants the same way the ADA is a cash cow for lawyers.
What mr high and mighty is saying is that he wants poor people (not the blessed like him) to be forced into trains and only self important scum like him will be allowed private cars.
Perhaps then everyone should re-post everything as many times as it takes for you to see it.
Then they should post it a few more times just to make sure that
folks in Kamchatka and Ethiopia see it at a convenient time.
You inspire me. All articles should be re-posted every fifteen minutes, forever.
These Agenda 21 trash need to leave our country. Nothing of any value was created with their destructive mindset.
Never underestimate the ignorance and stupidity of the masses.
Not to mention, I have read that 54% of NYC households do not own vehicles.
... while you and yours ride around in one of these...
we need American oil.....
The Kenedys just don’t reallize the are not part of working class USA citizens. Their bootleg liquer money has gone to their body parts. I thought JFK was a patriot but of the slimeball type.
JOHN KENNEDY to JOE KENNEDY III. Perfect example of the TOTAL COLLASPE of THE DEMOCRAT PARTY in the last 40 odd years.
Kennedys, realize & they. These are the words you failed to write.
Their bootleg liquer money
Liquor also is a word at which you failed.
Folks will take your words seriously if you write actual words.
Otherwise, you come off as a retard wearing a hoodie and huffing paint.
Forgive my ignorance,
Sooo, just what is it this Kennedy did, murder, rape, asault, drunk driving, heroin, I mean he’s a Kennedy so you gots to know Joe Kennedy III has a record.
the kennedy's are the AIDS of politics
When this low IQ fool loses the election he can fill in as Carrot Top’s double.
A Kennedy, he doesn’t care about the oil price. He has family money. No skin off his nose. He will not have to give up any dinners to buy gasoline.
Being a Kennedy gives you the right to be an elitist dumbass, a drunk, a cocaine addict, and entitled to be heard even though you don’t have anything worth hearing.
Things aren’t always as they seem.
