The press and media for the most part, we all understand, is still pulling for President Obama.  Fine, when we know that we can discount much of what they say.  Sort of like how we ignore the VP Joe Biden.

But there comes a point where we have to wonder what other things are going on that are ignored by the President’s backers.

Let’s take a few days ago and the President once again tried to insult the GOP Candidates about dropping the price of oil and drilling in this Country.  Paraphrasing he said I’ve created more supply than we’ve had in decades.  That isn’t going to drop the price of oil.

Now just yesterday word leaks out that some of the Strategic Reserve by both us and England, would be released.  In minutes the price of oil dropped by $2 a barrel and right away the President pushes down the report saying, hey wait, we were only TALKING about it.  We have no actual plans to do so at this time.

The result of that, oil shot right back up and even increased.  So much for the idea that more supply wouldn’t lower the price of gas.  Didn’t hear much about that in the National Papers did you?

Each part of the story was laid out, but no one I heard put all three parts together because it makes the President look clueless.

Here is the thing.  Fine, I get the President wants to push technology that isn’t ready and thinks using our tax dollars will hurry it along, (no matter how many times the investments fail) but let’s not be so blind that you cripple a majority of Americans and the very small gains made to recover our economy.

One last thing, I heard the President yesterday, I believe, saying that the right’s idea for energy has been drill for 30 years.  He leaves out that if we started drilling back then the left’s argument that it will take 10 years to get result would be moot.  As with any journey it begins with the first step.  So long as the left keeps us from drilling they maintain their major complaint as to why we can’t drill our way into lower gas prices.

Proving once again that history is not his strong suit.  More or less blasting President Rutherford Birchard Hayes as basically a “flat earther” saying he didn’t think the telephone was a practical invention.  First off those who follow the life and times of Rutherford B. Hayes dispute that he ever said such a thing.  Second off it seems the President doesn’t know that Hayes was a reformer, much like himself, who oversaw the 2nd industrial revolution and pulling the military out of the South after the War of Northern Aggression.

Here’s my thinking.  What Obama knew was ONLY that Rutherford B. Hayes was a Republican and that was enough for him to proclaim Hayes a stupid, backward “flat earther” just as he believes all of them are today.  “Clueless is as clueless does”

I would like to address the idea of candidates being “extreme”.  Take for as an indisputable fact that the Founders were extreme.  Common thinking was that man was not able to self-govern, (I might dispute that ability at times), and thus was born our Republic.  My dispute comes with the proof that we less than 100 years later we are attacking sovereign States and pumping public funds into private industry and a staggering amount of control and by-pass of the 10th Amendment of States rights.

One man’s extreme is another persons  return to normal, or in this case the Constitution.  Our Government was designed for an individual and his self-reliance, not for the individual to be controlled and ordered to buy things or obey dictates outside his beliefs.

At some point, if we are to survive, we must return to that way of thinking.  Return to that “extreme” type of thinking.

“Tyranny elected is tyranny none the less”

    Great thoughts Chas…POTUS is Clueless about history. He needs to talk to the real world about how long it takes to get oil out of the ground from the time leases are auctioned. It certainly is not 10 years.Watch the series “Black Gold” on TruTV.

    Progressive Environmentalists say “We dont want another Gulf Spill.” Check out the total Gulf spills versus the amounts spilled from tankers running aground or sinking.

    They need to build 1 or 2 more refineries as the current ones are running about 80% of capacity. That may take 10 years.

    Our government should invest in companies that want to build refineries and drilling not the Solendras of the world. Refineries don’t go belly up.

      But every single suggestion you make is simple common sense. Common sense is certainly uncommon in this Administration.
