The price per barrel of crude oil – which was at an all-time high the day Bush signed the moratorium that ended the ban on offshore drilling after going up and up and up to that point – continued to drop and drop. By September, it was below $109 a barrel. By October it had dropped even more. And it kept dropping.
But now in the age of Obama, it’s going up and up and up again. We have had a 55% increase in the price of our gasoline during a terrible recession. Obama’s energy policies have hurt this nation badly at an incredibly vulnerable period, without so much as a peep from most of the media.
Barack Obama threatened to bankrupt the coal industry – which produces 49% of our nation’s electricity – and said that:
“Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”
He told just enough lies and half-truths to get coal-state Democrats such as West Virginia Senator Jay Rockefeller to get them to believe he wouldn’t destroy their economies. But now that he’s elected he’s free to break those promises and pursue ruinous policies. Rockefeller is now saying of Obama that:
“he’s beginning to not be believable to me.”
But it’s like, “Sorry Sucker.” When you vote like a fool, you receive a fool’s fate.
Anyway, maybe you thought, “Well, I’m not in a coal producing state,” or “I’m not in a coal-fired electric grid,” so you thought Obama’s shockingly bad energy policies didn’t matter.
But you’re still going to have to put gas in your car, and Obama’s going to see to it that it costs you a pretty penny to do it.
