Look, I don't blame Obama or his policies for the revolutions in Islamic countries. But his stupid, shortsighted, and unwise drilling bans is going to cause immense havoc in our economy as fuel prices shoot up...and we've done nothing to help ourselves in the interim period. Supply's gonna go south. And we refuse (stupidly) to obtain what oil we can get to. Instead of a wise assessment of the gulf oil spill, we decided to flush our economy down the toilet in a knee-jerk reaction driven more by leftist ideology than the desire to see the United States prosper. So get ready for a Carter-like period of crazy fuel prices and the associated inflation. Only one difference: I think Jimmy Carter actually wanted our country to do well...he just didn't have a clue as to how to get us there. This guy we have now? I sincerely don't know if he wants the US to prosper or not. It's too late to remedy this problem, short-term. THe only thought I had was maybe doing liposuction on Al Gore. What would be gathered there would help for a while. And along the lines of geothermal energy--the hot air we've gotten from Washington would probably power a couple of states for a year or two. If we can just figure out how to separate the pollution from the hot air spewed by Obamareidelosi and others... Anyhow, thanks for being stupid, shortsighted, and unteachable, mister Obama. We're forever in your debt. Well, not "your" debt, but debt.
