Seems every single time Dear Leader opens his teleprompter mouth, every word coming out of it is nothing but a lie. He did so again today…big time. Can you count the number of lies he told today?
It’s past infuriating! Here we all are struggling with paying our power, heating, gas, grocery, insurance bills etc…and he has the audacity to gas-bag about all of this today with his never-ending hot-air. We all know what he seeks will make prices go higher at the pumps..therefore everywhere else that oil prices touch…which is wide and far reaching in our everyday lives from the time we wake up to the time we go to bed with each product we use, let alone the nest we reside in.
Here’s the story via Fox:
President Obama: “Instead of taxpayer giveaways to an industry that’s never been more profitable, we should be using that money to double-down on investments in clean energy technologies that have never been more promising — investments in wind power and solar power and biofuels; investments in fuel-efficient cars and trucks, and energy-efficient homes and buildings. That’s the future. That’s the only way we’re going to break this cycle of high gas prices that happen year after year after year. As the economy is growing, the only time you start seeing lower gas prices is when the economy is doing badly. That’s not the kind of pattern that we want to be in. We want the economy doing well, and people to be able to afford their energy costs.”
Blah blah blah…and blah. You can read the full transcript here. And Bloomberg’s report in the link above for Fox.
Here’s Fox reporter Ed Henry today, he got in a good one with Liar-in-Chief’s spokesman that spins the lies for him:
White House press secretary Jay Carney had no answer as to why Obama supported tax breaks for oil companies as a Senator in 2005, but now opposes them as President.
Henry: Why did the President vote for the energy bill in 2005 as a Senator that had over $2 billion in tax breaks for the oil industry. They were making a lot of money then too.
Carney: What I can tell you Ed is that the oil and gas companies in this country are making record profits, now, in 2012. The price at the pump is very high and that is plenty of incentive for these companies to continue drill, to continue to explore, to continue to develop energy sources here in the United States and abroad. There is no reason for the American taxpayer to subsidize that activity.
Henry: So why’d he vote for it?
Carney: I haven’t examined the vote, or what the prices were at the time, or the whole bill it was attached to. What I know and what the President knows is that this year, 2012, when we are seeing high prices at the pump, high prices in the international oil markets and high profits for the oil and gas companies, there is no reason to continue these kinds of subsidies. Take that argument to the people, I don’t think they’ll go along with it.
Plus folks, please be aware of what O’s EPA did Tuesday to power plants, along with other businesses. If you don’t know about this…you really need to read one heckuva great piece of work here from The Blaze.
Thing aren’t looking so rosy for Dear Leader when it comes to congress these days…I’d say everyone is running for cover with these two votes.
Last night in the House Obama’s Budget measure was voted down 414-0…you can read about it here.
Obama was defeated today regarding his call on oil subsidies, it was voted down in the Senate 51-47. You can read about it here.
A Clue-Bat wouldn’t work on Dear Leader…he’s ‘Stuck on Stupid‘…we’re paying the price for his policies now…but he’ll be paying our price come November!
