What Rush Limbaugh Said
Did you hear the SHOCKING thing that Rush Limbaugh said? No, I'm not talking about his comments on Georgetown Fluke who supposedly has so much sex that she can't afford the nine bucks a month it would cost her to get birth control pills from Walmart. I am referring to the OVERLOOKED comments that Rush made this week on the subject of oil. If you want to know what will determine the outcome of this election it will be the economy, stupid, and most specifically about the UNNECESSARY rise in the price of gasoline due to Obama's idiotic policies which include promoting failed solar companies and ridiculous pond scum technology. So here is what Rush Limbaugh (and reiterated by Newt Gingrich) SAID that has relevance in this election:
...We've got it in shale in the Dakotas. We've got it in Alaska. We've got it in the Gulf of Mexico. There's one guy and his political party making sure that we can't get it. Barack Hussein Obama does not want this nation to be independent of Middle Eastern oil.
Nobody can convince me he does. He opposed building the Keystone pipeline to get oil from Canada, that would create eventually tens of thousands jobs, by the way. But he doesn't have that because his left-wing, fringe kook base would be really mad at him because they hate oil. They hate progress. They hate technological advancement. If they had their way, we would all be living like they do in the hills of Afghanistan. "Instability in the Middle East." That's one of the reasons for high gas prices. Well, wait, we have a solution: We have our own oil.
Rush gets it. Newt gets it. And hopefully whoever opposes Obama in November will get it. Everything else, including the non-existent issue of contraception, is irrelevant to this election. Gas prices are FRONT and CENTER which is why the DUmmies are pretty much avoiding the topic except in a peripheral way such as in this THREAD in which Ralph Nader offers a typically unworkable leftwing price control "solution" to the problem: "Ralph Nader: President Obama Can Do More on Oil Prices." So let us now watch the DUmmies discuss the rise in oil prices through the leftwing lens of Ralph Nader in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, hoping to score some more FREE gas via coupons, is in the [barackets]:
Ralph Nader: President Obama Can Do More on Oil Prices.
[By approving the Keystone Pipeline RIGHT NOW.]
Gasoline and heating oil prices are ratcheting up. In California, some motorists are paying over $5 per gallon. President Obama declared that "there is no quick fix" for this problem. Meanwhile, the hapless but howling Republicans are blaming him for the fuel surge as if he is a price control czar.
[Since he won't approve the Keystone Pipeline who should we blame. Rush Limbaugh? Oh yes, the DUmmies would love that.]
Your gasoline prices are not charging up due to strains between supply and demand. Speculation, with those notorious derivatives and swaps, is what is poking larger holes in your fuel budget, according to Securities and Exchange Commission enforcement lawyers.
[The rest of this is just more of the typical leftwing rant on the subject by Ralph Nader that you can read at the site. However, it does open the discussion up to oil by the DUmmies which you can see below.]
Has Bush weighed in?
I would hate to think that the man who sucked away enough votes to allow George W. Bush into the White House, who caused the problems that the current president will need many many years to fix, would now presume to instruct the president as to what to do.
[How many nights of sleep did Al Gore lose while cursing out Ralph Nader for denying him his "birthright?"]
I'm still free so far to explain that Nader is wrong about this. He wants to do something about oil prices and that's not the problem that America has. The problem that America has is we need to do away with our addiction to environment-killing, increasingly scarce fossil fuels. We will do away with it or it will do away with us.
[The fossil fuels are NOT scarce. As Rush and Newt pointed out we have hundreds of years worth that right here in the USA that can be tapped with the new technologies.]
There is no such thing as cheap gasoline. There has never been any such thing as cheap gasoline. There will never, ever be any such thing as cheap gasoline.
[I remember that gasoline was $1.49 per gallon in late 2004. That doesn't rate as cheap?]
Mr Obama spoke about oil price volatility due to speculative pressures having to do more with pricing than supply and demand 11 months ago.
[Mr. Obama also spoke about how he can't do anything about the rise in gas prices. So he continues assuming the fetal position without approving the Keystone Pipeline or tapping into our own HUGE reserves just sitting in the ground.]
Even if Mr. Obama could magically wave his hand and make Iran disappear from the face of the Earth, he could not control oil speculators THAT AREN'T EVEN U.S. CITIZENS, NOR EVEN DOING BUSINESS IN THIS COUNTRY.
[Sooooo.... How's that Chevy Volt working out for you?]
Do you even have a clue how modern markets are a cruel perpetual money machine that grinds billions into poverty?
[Apparently Che Guevara is hiding out in the jungles of DUmmieland.]
The GOP is giving O shit about gas prices. Coincidence?
[You mean Newt didn't say what he said?]
This is unconscionable and ridiculous.
[I agree. This country is sitting on a sea of oil and natural gas reserves and it is unconscionable and ridiculous that Obama continues to do nothing about it while the price of gas soars.]
