CNN Fact Check: Energy proposals [Laughable analysis claims Obama not trying to kill oil]
CNN ^ | 8/29/12 | Tom Foreman and Eric Marrapodi

...President Barack Obama has heavily pushed an alternative energy agenda, his administration pouring billions of taxpayer resources into solar, wind and battery initiatives aimed at cutting dependence on foreign oil and changing how Americans view and use energy.

In a new policy paper, his Republican rival for the White House, Mitt Romney, says, "President Obama has intentionally sought to shut down oil, gas, and coal production in pursuit of his own alternative energy agenda."

“Tom and Eric, so-called “journalists” don’t mention the Keystone pipeline OR Obama’s EPA crushing the coal industry.”

Didn’t read the entire article. Did they mention Obama not reopening gulf oil drilling after the storms and all the rigs taking off for other locations? Did they mention the US being Brazil’s biggest oil customer?

Shutting down the Gulf. Axing the pipeline.

Obama is repaying whoever got him into and through HLS.

Of course he wants $10/gal gas.


On one side of the equation that explains WHY this Idiot wants $10/gal gas, we have the environmentalist wacko line that oil is destroying the Earth.

But that doesn't even begin to explain WHY Hussein Obama does what he does. Take Libya. WHY?

Why Egypt?

Why does Hussein support the Muslim Brotherhood? Why does Hussein want large sums of $$ to go towards what is simply a terrorist organization?

Bombings and attacks appear to be common in Iraq. WHY did Hussein want US troops out of Iraq when things were finally about stabilized?

You can use the leftist argument for energy but it doesn't work when it comes to Hussein and his Muslim buddies. When Hussein is done, he will have set up Egypt, Libya, Iraq and Syria to be radical Muslim states whose biggest goal will be the destruction of Israel. And the US will be next.

You may be blind, you may be waiting for the NY TIMES or SEE BS to show you Hussein's radical Muslim leanings but you probably will not believe anything until a real mental giant like George Will or George Stephanapolis points it out.

Don't believe CNN? Believe it or not, the Presstitutes still shape what you will believe. And you won't believe Obama is a Muslim terrorist until it is too late.

What does this look like? A crescent moon and a star? Conspiracy theory BS? or just more in your face Obama telling the Muslims they will win.

Kill oil? Obama has no intention, and never did, of killing the oil industry. However, he wants the US to buy all our oil from our enemies, rather than from friendly countries or from our own production. Why else the moratorium of drilling, the halting of the pipeline from Canada, and the refusal to issue permits on federal lands. On the other hand, he wants us to buy oil from the middle east (muslim countries) and Venezuela.

It's the coal industry he's trying to kill, and has said as much.
