I just want something simple, like the TRUTH!

< Part 1 of 4 – see links below >

We finally have an issue, an issue that represents a goal for the United States of America:

Energy independence, drilling for our own oil
and our own natural gas.

Finally, the president of the United States is willing to lead the charge on this. I know you can say, “Yeah, where has he been the last seven years?”

He actually has proposed drilling in ANWR. He hasn’t gone all the way, but he finally has now. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth and say, “Yeah, where’s this been?” We finally have, folks, an issue that can rally people — a simple issue that’s easy to understand. This is easy to understand as the House Bank scandal was easy to understand. We don’t have to explain the falling dollar, or why it’s happening and how to get the dollar back up

We don’t have to explain.

All we have to do is say: “Four dollar gasoline, $4.10 gasoline, $135 per barrel of oil, supply and demand.”

Everybody knows that we are not bringing up as much as we have and if we brought more of our own up, the very people that are demanding energy independence are standing in the way of it… It’s easy to understand.

Case has been made.

This is the time, just like it was during the illegal immigration debate, for elected officials in Washington to hear from you about what you think. We already have the Gallup showing 67% of the American people want to start drilling.

The brilliant Barack Obama said there is no way offshore drilling will lower prices right now. The Democrat Party is digging in and they are going to oppose this.

They’re going to oppose energy independence; they’re going to oppose advancing technology. They’re going to oppose the economic growth of the country. They’re going to oppose your prosperity. They’re going to oppose all of that by standing in the way of this.

Now, let’s take this statement made by Obama:

No way offshore drilling will lower prices right now.

Wow, what brilliance! The messiah has spoken. Delivered with the authority of a great leader: There’s no way offshore drilling will lower prices right now. The environmentalist extremists are dancing in the street…

But wait a second, wait a second. You know what, folks?

There’s no way alternative energy will lower prices right now.” There’s no way CAFE standards on automobile mileage will lower prices right now.” There’s no way an excess profit tax on oil companies will lower prices right now.”

Does he even know what he’s talking about?

Here’s the president from the Rose Garden announcing his change of heart on offshore drilling.

THE PRESIDENT: In the short run, the American economy will continue to rely largely on oil, and that means we need to increase supply, especially here at home. So my administration has repeatedly called on Congress to expand domestic oil production. Unfortunately, Democrats on Capitol Hill have rejected virtually every proposal, and now Americans are paying the price at the pump for this obstruction. Congress must face a hard reality: Unless members are willing to accept gas prices at today’s painful levels or even higher, our nation must produce more oil, and we must start now.

He nailed it.

This is exactly what the Democrats are going to do. Congress is willing to accept gas prices at today’s painful levels. They are more than happy to accept gas prices at today’s painful levels.

And it’s two reasons. One, pure politics. And I’m not prioritizing these in any order. And two, pure politics. I mean, the angrier the voting population is over the price of gasoline and the related economic fallout, the greater the odds the Democrats think that they can get elected president.

What’s bad for America is great for the Democrats. What’s great for America is bad for the Democrats. So they’re going to dig in, they’ve already started to dig in to oppose this. They want you in pain, ’cause they want your anger directed at the administration, therefore you’ll want change, which is the Democrats.

THE PRESIDENT: First, we should expand American oil production by increasing access to the Outer Continental Shelf, or OCS. Second, we should expand oil production by tapping into the extraordinary potential of oil shale. Third, we should expand oil production by permitting exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, or ANWR. And finally, we need to expand and enhance our refining capacity. Refineries are the critical link between crude oil and the gasoline and diesel fuel that drivers put in their tanks.

See how easy this is?

There are people like me and you, folks, who have been desperately wanting this to become not only our movement’s policy, but our country’s policy for years.
