Never Let A Serious Crisis Go To Waste; Cap & Trade

Powered by Topple

Editor’s Note – “Never let a serious crisis go to waste.”  While channeling Rahm Emanuel, President Obama will go on national television tonight and make his case for the passage of Cap and Trade, completely ignoring his poor handling of the Gulf oil spill in the process.

Of course, he’ll never use the phrase ‘cap and trade’.  He will engage in the elegance of the now standard far left double speak and refer to the need for clean energy and a comprehensive energy policy.  He’ll warn us about the limited supply of fossil fuels and the risks involved in acquiring it. 

He’ll also talk about the environmental costs that “our children… our grandchildren and our great-grandchildren are going to have to bear.”

Interestingly, Obama does not seem to be too concerned about our grandchildren and great-grandchildren while he’s quadrupling the national debt, which now stands at $13 Trillion.  One can only surmise that he wants future generations to be able to breath clean air while they choke on the unsustainable debt he is creating.

What Obama will also not mention tonight are all of his ‘cronies’ who stand to profit very handsomely if Cap and Trade passes.  Any regular Glenn Beck fan can tell you all about the Chicago Climate Exchange and it’s ties to Obama, Al Gore, Frank Raines, and on and on.  Another entity that will make a fortune from the passage of this legislation is GE.  Yes, the same GE that donated millions to Obama’s election campaign.  The same GE whose CEO sits on Obama’s Economic Advisory Board.  The same GE that owns the rabidly pro-Obama, pro-Green Energy MSNBC.

And, once Obama has accomplished the goal of misleading the country on this terrible legislation, he simply cannot pass up the opportunity to remind us all, once again, how none of our current problems are his fault.  He will point out for the ump-teenth time how he ‘inherited’ all these troubles and how grateful we should be to him for saving us from the abyss.

Someone take notes tonight, I don’t think I have the endurance to watch…

 

Obama: Gulf Spill Echoes 9/11

Politico

Obama — facing mounting criticism of his handling of the BP gusher, even from longtime allies — vowed to make a “bold” push for a new energy law even as the calamity continues to unfold. And he said he will use the rest of his presidency to try to put the United States on a course toward a “new way of doing business when it comes to energy.”

“In the same way that our view of our vulnerabilities and our foreign policy was shaped profoundly by 9/11,” the president said in an Oval Office interview on Friday, “I think this disaster is going to shape how we think about the environment and energy for many years to come.”

In his firmest declaration yet that he views the calamity as an impetus to push Congress afresh to pass a major energy and climate bill, Obama vowed to “move forward in a bold way in a direction that finally gives us the kind of future-oriented, … visionary energy policy that we so vitally need and has been absent for so long..”
