Dear Leader setting foot in Cushing, Oklahoma today daring to act as if he gave the all clear signal for some of the Keystone Pipeline to be built was absolutely one huge horrendous lie…and we all know it! Who does he think he is…how dumb does he think the American people are? I could only take five minutes or less of listening to his non-stop lying. As congressman Joe Wilson stated way back when at one of the State of the Union Addresses….”YOU LIE!”
Rush Limbaugh tore him apart today when it came to each and every lie Dear Leader spewed…here’s the rest of the story via FN:
The Rush Limbaugh Show segment
So Obama could not have stopped this leg of the Keystone pipeline if he’d wanted to.
It was already in place.
He’s simply there… There’s no other way to say it. He’s just glomming onto it. It’s like trying to be present when the Ten Commandments are given at the burning bush and claiming you wrote ’em. I’m almost speechless here with the absolute brazenness of this. I wouldn’t be surprised if Obama says, “I’ve laid more pipe than any president except Bill Clinton.” That’s where we’re heading with this. The guy who steadfastly opposes drilling for oil and has not issued any permits to speak of, particularly since Gulf oil drilling moratorium — the guy who has made his name opposing the Keystone pipeline — is now out taking credit for it.
And he’s trying to make people believe in this country that the entire Keystone pipeline, today, has just been authorized, and oil is going to be flowing through it. Never has it been more obvious that without the media, Barack Obama would not have a chance. Without the media, Barack Obama would be a national joke. But he has the media. He has the largest propaganda arm that a president has ever had. He has people willing to lie. He has people willing to publish his lies. He has people willing to work with him against the best interests of the people of this country. I’ve been alive 61 years, and I have never seen anything like this. I’m telling you.
There’s always been media bias, and the media were sickeningly slavish to things like Camelot, to JFK and Clinton. But this is unprecedented. I know they carried the water for Clinton for a while with Monica Lewinsky and that whole event, but even they drew some lines there. This has no boundaries. Whatever it takes. The only thing that a president can stop, again, is an international pipeline. In fact, the Keystone XL Pipeline is the first international pipeline that has ever been denied by a president. Keystone is the first international pipeline ever denied!
And he was denying it as recently as Monday. And he was criticizing it as recently as Tuesday. And he was telling people that there was no silver bullet or magic bullet to any new oil in this country however we got it, via drilling or via pipeline. And in a space of less than 48 hours, we have had the equivalent of an atheist become the pope on oil and on energy. The Keystone XL Pipeline is the first time in history a presidential permit for a cross-border pipeline has ever been denied.
And that’s why I think it isn’t gonna be long before Obama starts bragging about how much pipe he’s laid. He’ll start comparing himself to other presidents. “I’ve laid more pipe than any president except Bill Clinton.” He’s gotta throw Clinton in there for credibility. Obama does not control this segment of the pipeline’s permitting process. It also says something about the guy’s character. He’s gonna go out there and take credit for this when people like him would not allow it if they had the chance? Hardworking, private sector Americans have done this to try to overcome the obstacle that he represents and now he’s out taking credit for their work?
Every bit of this is irritating.
RUSH: “In his speech this morning, Obama said, ‘Producing more oil and gas here at home will continue to be a critical part of our energy strategy.'” Will continue to be! This is the guy standing in the way of oil and gas production. This is the guy throwing money away on wind and solar and electric cars. I saw a story earlier this week: “Will the Volt be Obama’s Edsel?” And then I thought: How many people reading that story know what the Edsel is? It “will continue to be a critical part of our energy strategy”? Obama is “producing more oil and gas here at home”?
This is what the Democrats do, folks. This is what the left does. There is no moral core. There’s no concern for truth and there’s no concern for being caught lying, because Obama knows that his number one support group’s not gonna call him on it. The only people who are gonna call him on it are people like me, and they’re not worried about that. They’ve got the AP on their side. They’ve got the Washington Post, the New York Times. They don’t care. But what it indicates is the good news about this: They know how deep the trouble Obama is in. They know how deep it is. They know the problems he’s got.
We have this: 78% of the people following this want the Keystone pipeline, and Obama’s in the 22% opposing it. And his 22% counts for a hundred percent because he can stop it, and he has stopped it. So now he’s out trying to make this little connection between Oklahoma and Texas appear to be the whole thing having been authorized. They’re in deep trouble. They have the support, when you boil it all down, of no more than 30% of people in this country. When you boil it all down, Obama and the Democrats have no more than 30%. Why do they get more votes than that? Well, once again: How many people do you think are going to hear this stuff today and think it’s true?
He lies. The lie is carried forward. It’s amplified, and it’s codified. It has the stamp of journalistic approval on it. It’s “true.” So we’re left to hope that people figure this out on their own, and therein resides the fear that people have for the future of the country. It’s wrapped up right in that whole concept: Will a majority of the American people see through this and understand what we’re dealing with, not just on the oil-gas pipeline issue, but Obama and policy after policy after policy? Health care, you name it. Will the American people finally wake up? Are they waking up? Will they see through it? The 2010 election results say, “Yes, they do.”
Let’s go to the sound bites. Let’s listen to some of this. It’s unbelievable, folks. Incumbent in you listening to this is you must understand that for Obama to go out to Cushing, Oklahoma, and say what he said today — for the AP to write the headlines I shared with you — they must believe that you’re stupid. They are counting on your ignorance. They’re counting on it. They believe you’re stupid anyway. Obama, leftists, Democrats have contempt for self-reliant average Americans anyway. They go into this thinking you’re stupid. But you have to understand that for him to say the things you’re gonna hear him say, the foundation for this is that he believes you’re so stupid and so gullible and so ignorant that you will believe what he says about this.
OBAMA: Today I’m directing my administration to cut through the red tape, break through the bureaucrat hurdles, and make this project a priority, to go ahead and get it done. Now, you wouldn’t know all this from listenin’ to the television set.
RUSH: Stop the tape. I’m sorry, but I can’t let this thing go without stopping it. Cue it back up to the top. “I’m directing my administration to cut through the red tape…” There isn’t any. To the extent that there’s red tape in the Keystone pipeline, it’s his. “I’m directing my administration to cut through the red tape, break through the bureaucrat hurdles…” Who puts them up? Who are the bureaucrats? They’re not private sector people. Bureaucrats, by definition, work for the government. They’re his! “I’m directing my administration to cut through the red tape, break through the bureaucrat hurdles, and make this project a priority…” It already was. It’s almost already done.
Okay, here we go, from the top again.
OBAMA: Today I’m directing my administration to cut through the red tape, break through the bureaucrat hurdles and make this project a priority, to go ahead and get it done. Now, you wouldn’t know all it is from listenin’ to the television set. This whole issue of the Keystone pipeline has generated, obviously, a lot of controversy and a lot of politics. Our experts said that we needed a certain amount of time to review the project. Unfortunately, Congress decided they wanted their own timeline. Not the company, not the experts. But members of Congress who decided this might be a fun political issue, decided to try to intervene and make it impossible for us to make an informed decision.
RUSH: Now, that’s the northern half of the pipeline, again. Remember, what he’s out there taking credit for today was already in the pipeline. It was already in the works. He can’t stop this, and he didn’t have anything to do with approving it. There is no Keystone pipeline, folks. The leg from Canada to the United States is still in limbo. He has not authorized it, and he won’t until after he’s reelected. Now it’s “blame this on Congress.” They wanted it done within a certain amount of time! It’s just all… Every word of this… Whew! I have to find a different way of dealing with this. I have to find a different way of trying to persuade people. I have been doing this for 23 years and these people, they keep getting away with it. Here’s the next bite. Got three more to go. Here’s the next one.
OBAMA: Today we’re making this new pipeline from Cushing to the Gulf a priority. So the southern leg of it we’re makin’ a priority and we’re going to go ahead and get that done. The northern portion of it, we’re gonna have to review properly to make sure that the health and safety of the American people are protected. That’s common sense.
RUSH: Yeah, these pipelines rupture every day, you know. I mean, you heard about the pipeline ruptured yesterday, right? It killed a bunch of snail darters. It seeped onto Highway 70 in Missouri! You shoulda seen the traffic accident. All the cars that slipped off the highway. These pipelines, they rupture every day. You know that, don’t you? We gotta be protecting the people and their safety and health. ‘Cause what’s in that pipe? Oil! That dirty, rotten filthy stuff. Oil. We can’t have that. (muttering)
This is such a crock. Here’s the next bite.
OBAMA: If you guys are talkin’ to your friends, your neighbors, your coworkers, your aunts or uncles and they’re wonderin’ what’s going on in terms of oil production, you just tell ’em: Anybody who suggests that somehow we’re suppressin’ domestic oil production isn’t paying attention. I want everybody to understand this: We use 20% of the world’s oil; we only produce 2% of the world’s oil. Even if we opened up every inch of the country, if I put a — an oil rig on the South Lawn; if we had one right next to the Washington Monument; even if we drilled every little bit of this great country of ours — we’d still have to buy the rest of our needs from someplace else if we keep on usin’ the same amount of energy, the same amount of oil.
RUSH: None of that is true, folks. We’ve had documented stories with the facts, this week and last and in previous days, on domestic oil production, and here they are again. Domestic oil production on privately owned land where Big Oil has its rigs and smaller oil companies have their rigs, that oil production is way up. Oil production on federally owned lands is near an all-time low because that’s what he has ordered. In addition there are no permits being granted for private sector firms to go drill for, find, explore, whatever, oil on federally owned lands. The third thing is, with shale oil and its discoveries in the Northern Plains of this country, we now have more oil.
This 2% has been blown out of the water, too. We now have, accessible to us, more oil than Saudi Arabia. We now have, accessible to us, more than the Saudis! I had the news from the Investor’s Business Daily; they got it from the Oil Institute. We have enough oil in the lower 48 — well, let’s count Alaska in this — to provide enough oil at current annual consumption rates to power this country for over 200 years. That’s how much oil we have. We wouldn’t have to buy any. We wouldn’t have to import any. He’s very sensitive to this charge about oil production being down, and he ought to be because it is down on land that he has control of.
(impression) “You guys talking to your friends and neighbors, coworkers, and you tell ’em anybody suggests somehow we’re suppressing domestic oil, they don’t pay attention!” See, Mr. President, your problem is we are paying attention, and we know how you’re making all this up. We know where the oil is being produced in this country and where it’s being stifled by you. Come on, folks. You know that just two days ago, and every day prior to that, this man has opposed oil with every fiber of his existence. He’s opposed getting more of it; he’s opposed finding more of it. He is opposed to using it.
Now with a Gallup poll showing 78% of the American people paying close attention to this want the Keystone pipeline, guess who’s making it happen? When he isn’t. That’s right. Our brave, courageous president — up against such mean people as Rush Limbaugh — is overcoming profound obstacles put in his way by mean people like Rush Limbaugh. Yep! That’s what he’s fighting. He’s doing it for you. I tell you, his logic here is just laughable. More oil won’t help? Or it will? Which is it? This is shifting now by the hour! On the one hand, he says, “We can get all the oil that we have, and we would still have to buy some.”
On the other hand, he’s out there trying to take credit for the Keystone pipeline ’cause we need more oil. If all the oil we have would not change the equation, why? What’s the whole point of this? More oil won’t help, but he’s gotta go out to Oklahoma to take credit for getting more oil. How is this possible? Now, according to the Heritage Foundation, “Oil and gas production on federal lands under Obama is down by more than 40% compared to ten years ago. And the year 2010 had the lowest number of onshore leases issued since 1984. And the Obama administration has held only one offshore lease sale in 2011.” None this year.
Dear Leader…the American people know they price we’re paying each and every day from our gas pumps to our grocery stores…and you’re going to pay our price come November!
