Moonbat Messiah to Nix Drilling
To no one’s surprise, this didn’t take long:
U.S. President Barack Obama may order a hold on a proposal issued in the final days of the Bush administration to expand offshore drilling in previously banned areas, an Interior Department official told Reuters on Wednesday. … Separately, the Interior official said the department’s plan to develop oil shale fields in the western United States may also be stopped by Obama’s order.
Cheap oil is likely to shorten the recession, which Obama needs to worsen if he is to strangle what’s left of our economic freedom and move us toward socialism. Thus it’s important to prevent us from drilling our own oil.
Fortunately, we don’t need the oil anyway, now that we’re in the era of rainbows and unicorns. We can just fill our gas tanks with Hope and Change.
