With gasoline prices marching north, President Obama next week will take a break from worshipping the sun and putting his finger to the wind when he actually highlights energy projects that provide lots of energy.
Wednesday, he’ll be in Carlsbad, New Mexico to inspect oil and gas production fields located on federal lands.
And OBAMA WILL BE IN OKLAHOMA Thursday – yes, OKLAHOMA – to “discuss his Administration’s commitment to improving and supporting the infrastructure that helps us leverage our domestic resources,” the White House said.
I assume these are code words for the infrastructure to get fossil fuels out of the ground, since he sure ain’t going to Oklahoma for votes. He’s more likely to strike oil.
Of course, the two day trip also features a solar facility and a meeting with people conducting “some of the country’s most advanced energy-related research and development.”
But the White House is clearly eager to show that Obama loves the non-advanced stuff too, since THAT’S WHAT THE COUNTRY IS GOING TO BE RUNNING ON FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.
