Gambler in Chief Ignores Reality

Lies are how the left operates, it’s what they do (in addition to blaming others for, well, just about everything).

The lie that the left pushes is that green energy is viable, and it’s worth (wasting) your money to “invest in”, despite no proven  business model or that it can even come close to replacing the energy resources all industrialized nations use. I’m all for investing in alternative energy. Just not with taxpayer money on the scale we’ve recently seen (nor on failed business models).

You only have to look at the price at the gas pump to know they’re lying to you. While gas hovers at $4.00 a gallon (up from about $1.85 when Obama took office), the Administration is wasting taxpayer money (aka “investing”) in green energy boondoggles such as algae and losing endeavors such Solyndra Ener1 (renewable energy storage battery technology), and oh, 11 other Solyndra’s (to the tune of $6.5 billion in taxpayer loans).

And if you’re not on board with the green-doggle express, you’re a “flat-earther”.

The reality is that the United States sits on the largest fossil fuel reserves in the world. Not to mention the forgotten promise of nuclear energy, the original alternative to coal and oil. Another sobering reality is that President Obama is in the process of shutting down an entire industry – coal – that provides 45% of our energy needs ! Of course, he told us he would do so back in 2008. Rich people will grumble while the vast majority will have additional pressure on their heat pump bills to go along with the gas pump pain.

The left likes it when the price at the gas pump rises (although it doesn’t bother the Energy Secretary Steven Chu – he doesn’t own a car, but his wife owns a BMW); they just feign impotence at the price of a barrel of oil and fawn at the algae and wind farms, all done while mouthing “I feel your pain.”

Despite the pain-in-the-pump, President Obama wants to “double-down on investments in clean energy technologies”.  “Double-down” is an interesting way of putting it, as any gambler knows. I just don’t want the gambler-in-chief wasting more money on failed enterprises that can’t make a buck on technology that promises so much, but delivers so little. So he wants to shift $4 billion in oil and natural gas subsidies away from companies that actually make a profit to companies who will likely follow Solyndra and others down the black hole of failed enterprises.

And to prove my point, the Democrats # 1 attack dog (Debbie Wasserman-Schultz) was pounding the podium (with lies) after the American Energy Alliance announced plans to air an ad titled “Nine Dollar Gas”. One can only hope that DWS will be seen frequently by the voting public in the coming months.

National security is the President’s # 1 responsibility, and our energy independence is a key factor. Our nation’s economy is strangled by the redistributor-in-chief as he gambles with your money on losing propositions whose only beneficiaries are his cronies.

    John 8:31b-32 ” . . . [Jesus said] If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed and you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”
    The horrible alternative is in Revelation 21:8 “But the fearful and unbelieving and the abominable and murders and whoremongers and sorcerers and idolaters and ALL LIARS shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone which is the second death.”
    I pray that all receive the Way, the Truth and the Life.

    If the left can’t lie, cheat or steal to get what they want, it’s not worth having…..

    All well and good, Barbara, but not really applicable to solving the energy crisis and reducing gas prices at the pump. And I sure wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for Obama and his leftist sycophants to “see the light.”

    The Democrat leadership and Obama’s clueles czars are just ideologues who just too ignorant to acknowledge: 1) the truth about the total energy reserves that are available right now in this country and just off our shores; and, 2) the absolute inability of wind, solar and pond scum to provide more than a tiny percentage of our total energy needs. (And, none of these alternative sources would be very economical today.) Nuclear power is the ONLY viable, “green” alternative to fossil-based fuels for the economical production of electricity; but even this non-polluting methodology does not fit Obama’s “prime directive” to destroy the coal industry,
    “scapegoat” the oil industry, and blame GWB for all of his own failed policies.

    The man needs to be retired to his ancestrial home, so maybe we can begin to recover from the fiscal abyss…estimated to be a $16 trillion of debt by the end of 2012… into which he has plunged this nation.

    someone needs to work up a graph showing the so-called footprint of Air Force One and its entourage from January 2009 until today since most of that traveling around had to do with the President’s effort to fool the people into buying into the foolish green energy plan of his. And maybe another graft showing the footprint of all these companies entering the Green energy field including the bankrupt ones and how that compares with fossil fuel per megawatt.
