Here's the video. In it, as have previous AFO messages, the Regime is using the oil spill to push the "crap & tax" scheme, which would raise energy prices through the roof and is a tax on working Americans. In doing so, Obama uses the same language as the radical environmentalists who supported him
Carl Pope of the Sierra Club wrote in 2006 "We're better off without cheap gas."
Additionally, Obama like other liberals once again hijack recovery terms to describe the necessity of fossil fuels to our every-day lives as an "addiction to oil," like we're all a bunch of junkies groping around for our next fix. Never mind that 85 percent of our energy comes from fossil fuels. So does Vaseline, the tires on our cars, the makeup women wear, plastics, the list goes on and on. Like it or not, our economy is run on fossil fuels, and if you shut it down, you shut down our economy.
Also, the idea that we're running out of places to drill in America is a damn lie. There's plenty of spots for future development, but the liberals and the tree huggers have blocked those places off.
Just as with the border, Obama has hijacked and allowed this disaster to spread for purely political reasons -- the implementation of his radical agenda. Like all demagogues, he uses fear and emotion to work the public.
