To save repeating myself, let me refer you back to my post Oct 9, 2018 about truth. Some may have already read it.
During the Republican convention of 2008, Lt. Gov. Steele said, “Drill baby, Drill.” Later, during the vice presidential debate, Gov Palin repeated it. Some time later, Obama said it wouldn’t do any good. At or about that time, the price of oil was $142 per barrel. Then they started drilling in North Dakota and Texas… I guess a few other places too, to the dismay of Obama. The point is, Obama refused to release federal land for drilling. Indeed, he went out of his way to keep people from drilling.
Oddly, the price went down briefly to $26.21 in 2016. Currently, though the usage has gone way up, the price is currently about $63. Moreover, we are virtually self-sufficient, something that I am sure frustrates Obama to no end.
Now, this leads me to believe one of two things. Obama purposely lied, or he was totally ignorant. I don’t know which scares me more. However, given his history, I assume he was lying. He is the same man that said he had shovel ready projects. (I would still like to know where those billions went that were appropriated. I suspect it is lining the pockets of his friends.) He is also the same man that said you can keep your same doctor. By the way, he is the same man that has me paying a thousand dollars a month for my wife’s health insurance.
Do you really want to believe that man, an admitted liar. He himself said, “I guess those projects weren’t shovel ready after all.” I don’t think I want to believe the man. Now he is campaigning for his cohorts. Some people actually believe him. Some have college degrees. Can’t figure that out.
It is clear that he just wanted the price of energy to go up so that he could pay for his green projects. By the way, his green projects didn’t work, none of them. They were all flops. Not only that, the windmills are still killing birds, including the protected eagles.
