Morning Bell: Don’t Fall For Obama’s Energy Shell Game

Posted April 1st, 2010 at 9:18am in Energy and Environment 53 Print This Post Print This Post

Can the Obama administration’s desperate attempts to cover their true far
left nature with centrist rhetoric and promises become any more
transparent? Yesterday, the President announced “an expansion of offshore oil and gas exploration” in selected areas off the coasts of the United States. The President claims this announcement was made “in order to sustain economic growth and produce jobs,” but nobody believes him. Just take a quick look at today’s newspaper reporting:
  • The Los Angeles Times: “President Obama … unveiled a controversial offshore drilling plan
    Wednesday that was driven largely by the politics of his agenda on
    energy and climate change — not by hopes of changing the nation’s
    energy supply.”
  • The Washington Post: “President Obama’s decision … reflects a high-stakes calculation by the
    White House: Splitting the difference on the most contentious energy
    issues could help secure a bipartisan climate deal this year.”
  • Politico: “Obama’s decision is closely tied politically to the fate of the
    climate change bill jointly sponsored by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC),
    John Kerry (D-MA), and Joe Lieberman (I-CT).”
  • The New York Times: “The proposal is also intended to … help win political support for comprehensive energy and climate legislation.”
  • Bloomberg: “President Barack Obama’s pledge to expand offshore oil and natural-gas
    drilling may help Democrats deliver legislation that regulates carbon
    dioxide emissions before any fuel is produced.”
In fact, if anything, the policies announced by President Obama yesterday
will actually decrease and delay future U.S. oil production. The
President actually canceled four lease sales off the Alaska coast that
were planned to begin producing oil within the next two years, delayed
a planned lease off Virginia until at least 2012, and placed some areas
off limits for at least seven years. Go back and look at President
Obama’s actual announcement again: he only promised new exploration off
the Atlantic coast. There is absolutely no guarantee that any new
drilling will ever occur. Secretary Ken Salazar’s Interior Department
still has full discretion to never allow a single drop of oil to be
harvested from these waters. And that doesn’t even begin to address the
court challenges the enviro-left will employ to attack a nd delay the entire process.

So if developing new energy sources that can create private sector jobs for Americans and new
revenues for financially strapped states and the federal government is
not the Obama administration’s real goal, then what is? Well, President
Obama’s Energy Secretary Steven Chu, who was at yesterday’s
announcement, has said, “Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline t... For reference purposes, when Secretary Chu said that, Europeans were paying $8 a gallon for gas at the pump.

Canceling current offshore oil leases and delaying future ones are not the only
policy means the Obama administration is using to pursue the high
energy price policy ends. The Obama administration has also declared war on energy production in the Mountain West, rescinding oil-shale development leases in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. His administration has completely failed to take on the real regulatory reforms necessary .... And just this week, the Obama Environmental Protection Agency began its regulation of c....

And let’s not forget the grand daddy of them all: a cap and trade energy tax bill. But don’t call it that. Secretary Salazar told CNBC yesterday, “I think the term ‘cap and trade’ is not in the lexicon
anymore.” Whatever you call it, placing an arbitrary penalty on carbon
emissions would mean disaster for the American economy. The Heritage
Foundation’s Center for Data Analysis has found
that cap and tax legislation would cost the average family of four
almost $3,000 per year, cause 2.5 million net job losses by 2035, and
produce a cumulative gross domestic product (GDP) loss of $9.4 trillion
between 2012 and 2035.

So don’t be fooled by President Barack Obama’s energy rhetoric. High energy prices are not a side effect of
climate legislation – they are the whole point. According to the latest
Pew poll, 63% of Americans support allowing more offshore oil and gas drillin....
Americans deserve an energy policy that reduces prices, creates private
sector jobs, and reduces our national debt. Right now they have the

What do Barak Obama and Tiger Woods have in common?? ~~~ They both want to screw every one in America!
The sole purpose of every policy BHO proposes is to diminish and eventually cause the demise of America and the impoverishment of it's citizens.
