No Silver Bullets But Plenty of Oil

In at least a dozen speeches, press conferences and weekly addresses since the recent spike in gas prices President Obama bellowed the same scripted lines: There is no such thing as a quick fix to high gas prices.  There is no silver bullet.  Anyone who tells you otherwise is riding the political wave of the […]

Lower Gas Prices? Obama Says No We Can’t

Four years ago Candidate Obama preened before mobs of addled admirers as they chanted “yes we can!”  Now President Obama says “we” can’t drill “our” way to lower gas prices.  So then the voters should take charge and get “we” out of the way so oil explorers, drillers, pipeline operators and refiners can do their […]

Gas Price Deception

Higher gas prices are the result the Obama Administration has tried to achieve for two years. As we’re all painfully aware, higher oil prices caused by the termoil in the Middle East have driven up gasoline prices in America.  Since it’s first month in office the Obama Administration has pursued policies that were intended to […]

During his Oval Office Oil Spill speech Tuesday night the President said: …part of the reason oil companies are drilling a mile beneath the surface of the ocean – because we’re running out of places to drill on land and in shallow water. Well, there are plenty of places to drill on land.  One is […]

Any Crisis Can Support Obama’s Agenda

Three weeks after Barack Obama was elected President in November, 2008 his top aid, Rahm Emanuel, said in a TV interview: You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.  What I mean by that is its’ an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before. That bit of political […]
