Pathetic: After Blocking Oil Drilling, Obama Now Posing in Front of Oil Wells

Barack Obama

I guess posing in front of a shuttered Solyndra factory isn’t part of his campaign. Seriously, can it get any more pathetic than this?

After blocking the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada and watching helplessly as gas prices soar, President Obama yesterday posed in front of an oil storehouse in Oklahoma — and tried to convince America that he’s an oilman at heart.

“We are drilling all over the place right now,” insisted Obama, as he stood in front of a stack of massive pipes for a new pipeline that will run from storehouses in Cushing, Okla., to refineries in Texas.

That will be the southern leg of the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to Texas, which Obama blocked just weeks ago, citing environmental concerns.

The oil company TransCanada decided to build the southern leg anyway because it doesn’t cross an international border and, therefore, doesn’t need Obama’s approval.
So he’s approving something that doesn’t need approval? Sure, who’s buying that?
“Apparently, the slipping poll numbers have convinced him to announce the lower half of that pipeline,” Romney said. “If we can get his poll numbers just a little lower, we may be able to get the other side, too. So let’s get that job done.”

    So this is where that hope and change bit comes in? He hopes that he can baffle with bullshit so his earlier wish for high energy prices doesn’t sink him? Heh.

    Still waiting on his Sec. of Energy to explain why he wanted to jack up gas prices to match Europe, especially since these alternative energy schemes are dying left and right.

    Posing in front of oil wells? Can anyone say bullshit!

    These people in Oklahoma aren’t stupid, despite what the Lame Stream Media and the entertainment industry would have you believe about Southerners. Come November they’re gonna prove it. A great part of Oklahoma is cattle country and grazing land and the people there know bullshit when they see it. Helen Keller could see what a big fat turd Omama is laying here.

    I’m not naive – I expect Presidents to pose for photo-ops and pander and butt-lick. It’s part of the game of politics. But Omama has taken smoke blowing to an entirely new level and it borders on the ridiculous. Fuck him and the 747 he flew in on.

    The reason Obie does all this is really very simple – the Media won’t call him on his bullshit. They’ve got his back covered, so he can lie, tell half-truths, or not even say anything at all, and it’s unlikely any of it will come back to bite him in the ass.

    And this will continue as long as the ignorant 55% rely on the Mainly Leftist Media for their “news”, or until the Obama administration commits a betrayal of one of its Big Media allies of the kind that just can’t be ignored.

    Give Obama credit that is due. He ordered fast-track approval for half a pipeline. The half that was already in progress and didn’t require his approval in the first place.

    Did I get that right?

    Is Obama cool, or what.
