HOPE ON Project, Day 2: Let’s Never Find Out Part 2 — Energy

Filed under: Economy,Environment,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 8:43 am

Note: This is the second of what will be 13 daily posts on why Barack Obama is a dangerous, objectionable, and objectively unfit candidate to be president of the United States (while many of the other candidates are not). Part 1 (Obama “Part of the Problem” on Fan and Fred) is here.

The daily videos involved will be from NeverFindOut.org, a project of Let Freedom Ring (donation link is here).

This post is part of the HOPE ON Project (Help Ohio Prevent Electing Obama Now).

Today’s SOB Alliance author is NixGuy. Update: Some of the others linking (this is surely an incomplete tally): Maggie Thurber, RightRunner, Return of the Conservatives.


Video — “Energy” (direct YouTube link to Obama extolling the virtues of tire inflation and tune-ups as the ENTIRE solution to the energy issue is here):


WOMAN: Senator Obama, you say that punitive taxes on oil companies will solve our energy problems. But economists say windfall taxes will only raise the price of gasoline. You say you’re against offshore drilling. But experts say we need to maximize oil supply while we develop alternative energy. Senator, you are running for President, not us. Why do we need to explain this to you?

ANNOUNCER: What happens when we elect a Senator who doesn’t understand supply and demand? Please, America, let’s never find out.

NixGuy Commentary:

On energy the choice couldn’t be more clear. Here’s Barack Obama (direct YouTube link).

On one side we have a liberal who is beholden to the environmentalist lobby. He (Obama) would rather we keep sending our cash to the Middle East rather than keep it here. And on the other side we have an bonafide energy expert, Sarah Palin, who has successfully managed Alaska’s natural resources (at least in the areas where the Federal government so graciously allows Alaskans to use their own land)


Kudlow: How long would it take? How long would it take? I hear so many, Senator Obama says this, and a lot of Democrats say this, some Republicans, how long will it take Governor? What’s your estimate on this? To start lifting out of ANWR?

Palin: It’s going to take at least five years. You know, and there are other areas in Alaska too, that have the reserves that need to be tapped, certainly offshore. There’s trillions of cubic feet of natural gas, and billions of barrels of oil there too that need to be tapped. We also have a natural gas pipeline that is underway now, a process to get that constructed, where we can build infrastructure and allow known reserves of natural gas up on our North Slope – it’s already there, it’s already proven – to be tapped and flow through a natural gas pipeline. Our legislature is dealing with that issue right now, getting ready to license a company to build that gas line. Again, to feed these hungry markets.


and more of Sarah Palin doing her thing here (direct YouTube link):

If you are at all concerned that energy costs might skyrocket out of control again, or about the fact that we are trading billions of dollars to the Middle East where it distorts the influence of those countries on us and our foreign policy, then you vote McCain/Palin

Obama’s energy policy: solar, electric cars and miracle fuels (Same Stuff Jimmy Carter did to no avail), campaign conversions on coal and a very late campaign “conversion” on offshore drilling.

McCain/Palin: solar energy, electric cars, efficiency, nuclear energy, clean coal, offshore drilling + Energy expert Governor Palin.

Not even a close choice. Jobs and cheap energy: McCain/Palin

BizzyBlog Additional Thought:

Best line of the Never Find Out Vid — “Why do we have to explain this you?” Answers: Because a) Obama doesn’t understand supply and demand; b) Even if he did understand supply and demand, he doesn’t care, because saving the planet from the non-existent threat of global warming is more important than growth and prosperity; and c) to the extent that the government can directly or indirectly control the energy sector, it controls the means of production for the entire economy — which is the very definition of “that word.”

  1. I hope they put up the video of today’s rally in Reno NV, Sarah was smokin so hot on the issues that Biden would have burned to a crisp. Wow, if McCain could only deliver the points like Sarah, there wouldn’t be any question as to who would win the election.
