Sarah Palin: 'President Obama is once again giving lip service to a "new energy proposal"'

Once again, Sarah Palin fills the vacuum of leadership so prevalent in the Republican Party:

Sarah_Palin.jpgIt'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 country. This is no accident. This administration is not a passive observer to the trends that have inflated oil prices to dangerous levels. His war on domestic oil and gas exploration and production has caused us pain at the pump, endangered our already sluggish economic recovery, and threatened our national security. Through a process of what candidate Obama once called "gradual adjustment," American consumers have seen prices at the pump rise 67 percent since he took office. Meanwhile, the vast undeveloped reserves that could help to keep prices at the pump affordable remain locked up because of President Obama's deliberate unwillingness to drill here and drill now. We're subsidizing offshore drilling in Brazil and purchasing energy from them, instead of drilling ourselves and keeping those dollars circulating in our own economy to generate jobs here. The President said today, "There are no quick fixes." He's been in office for nearly three years now, and he's about to launch his $1 billion re-election campaign. When can we expect any "fixes" from him? How high does the price of energy have to go?

She's got plenty more.  Read it all.  Pass it on.

Palin is exactly right on this.
And Obomba continues to lie about the facts.
He's quite fond of using this whopper:

"Right now the industry holds tens of millions of acres of leases where they're not producing a single drop. They're just sitting on supplies of American energy that are ready to be tapped."

Bullshit. The industry might have leases but not all produce output. And those that do get held up in the permit process.

As usual, Obomba is dishonest and tries to cast the blame elsewhere.

Palin is correct.

Talk is cheap. Talk about ... (Below threshold)

Talk is cheap. Talk about 5 and 10 year plans, even more so.

Talking to Brazil about giving THEM money so THEY can drill and WE can buy their oil is... just plain crazy. We can't drill for oil here at home? Oh, wait - that's icky drilling for it HERE - better we give the Brazilians money so they can drill and we can buy it.

Obama's based his entire career upon talk, telling people what they wanted to hear to get their support. Never had to actually plan, never had to actually lead, never had to produce any tangible results - he's lost without someone to tell him what to say, to form his opinions. And we've seen it with his lousy performance, his hesitations, his delays on making any sort of decisions (except where to go on the taxpayer's credit card).

And soon he'll start his re-election bid? Damn, the dude hasn't even put in a good year's worth of decision-making yet, his party totally bugged out on the budget LAST year, and he wants the job a second time? And he's going to start campaigning 18 MONTHS before the election?

Ask yourself - are you better off than you were three years ago? (Assuming you don't work for the left-wing shills like MediaMatters and Moveon and the like - you assholes have been earning big bucks.) Unemployment's zoomed, deficits have multiplied - and we're supposed to think he's got a 'plan'?

I think he's got a plan, all right. It's the same sort of plan that the 'leaders' of certain African and SA countries have, of making sure his friends are taken care of, tells the people he's nominally responsible to that they're going to get all sorts of goodies, insures that HE doesn't suffer a moment's want for anything - and then bugs out when the bill comes due and he can't fool people any longer.

But hey - 'hope and change' was the mantra. Damn shame nobody ever asked just what sort of 'Change' he was going to stick us with!

Is that the sound of crickets from the GOP on this issue?

For someone who has been labeled as dumb, etc.,she has an intuitive grasp of problems and effective solutions.

It's been said we need another Reagan--well, that won't happen.

Instead, we have a Palin--who is an improvement on the original model.

Who says progress isn't beneficial?

Irongrampa -

I think Palin DOES have a fundamental grasp on reality that Obama doesn't.

Obama says something - and that's all he's concerned about. Words are the most important thing to him, words and their effect on his support. Once the words are spoken, his part is over. And those words... are variable, depending on who he talks to, at what time, and what the reason is he's saying those words.

Palin - look at what she's done. She understands nothing gets done without action - whether it's feeding a family through hunting, or bringing in a boatload of fish. You can't talk fish into leaping into the boat, you can't persuade a moose to let you cut its throat, you can't keep a house warm if you don't put in stocks of fuel for the winter. You can't talk a tree down and persuade it to stack itself in neat cords, no matter how eloquent you are.

Obama talks about energy - Palin knows what needs to be done to get it, and would provide it.

'Course he's in Europe on my ex's meal ticket taking the trains everywhere to party while he finishes his MPH. Hope they don't run out of oil when he's due to get back for his presentation.

I don't know him, Epador, but since you're his dad I think he'll be fine once Reality bitch-slaps him a couple of times.

Actually it's only been a little over 2 years, but it does seem like a lot longer...
