Obama: Deepen CHS, SAV, and JAX ports in the Gulf

Obama wants to deepen ports of Charleston, Savannah, and Jacksonville on the Gulf.  Yes and Hawaii is in Asia and there are 57 states. That’s Obama, always the smartest man in the room.  One blogger reminded us of how the press would handle this if Bush said it. But remember, George W. Bush was an idiot. In a display of breathtaking stupidity that will be ignored by his adoring media, [...]

Warren Buffet Cleans Up After Keystone XL Nixed

Warren Buffet Cleans Up After Keystone XL Nixed

When President Obama, who is normally a great proponent of “infrastructure” projects, made his bizarre decision to block the Keystone XL pipeline project, I wondered if he might have been induced to create those thousands of American jobs if the oil could be moved by his beloved high-speed rail. As it turns out, oil is already moved from northern latitudes, such as the booming oil fields of North Dakota, down [...]

Palin Flashback: What We Were Saying One Year Ago About Obama’s Failed Energy Policy

It’s unbelievable (literally) the rhetoric coming from President Obama today. This is coming from he who is manipulating the U.S. energy supply. President Obama is once again giving lip service to a “new energy proposal”; but let’s remember the last time he trotted out a “new energy proposal” – nearly a year ago to the day. The main difference is today we have $4 a gallon gas in some places in the [...]

Obama: Drill, Brazil, Drill!

Energy Policy: While leaving U.S. oil and jobs in the ground, our itinerant president tells a South American neighbor that we’ll help it develop its offshore resources so we can one day import its oil. WHAT?!? With Japan staggered by a natural disaster and a nuclear crisis, cruise missiles launched against Libya in our third Middle East conflict and a majority of U.S. senators complaining about a lack of leadership [...]
