You can't make this stuff up. As Forrest Gump would say, "Life is like a box of chocolates--you never know what you'll get." For the first time in
we have a real live Forrest Gump living in the White House. We never know what
he's going to say next. Here's what we got from Forrest Obama Gump last week
at a campaign stop in U.S. : Miami
"'The American people aren't stupid," thundered President Obama as he ridiculed Republicans who are blaming him for rising gasoline prices. Let's hope he's right, because not even Forrest Gump could believe the logic of what Mr. Obama is trying to sell. He went on to say:
“We’re making new investments in the development of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel that’s actually made from a plant-like substance, algae — you’ve got a bunch of algae out here,” Obama said at the University of Miami. “If we can figure out how to make energy out of that, we’ll be doing alright. Believe it or not, we could replace up to 17 percent of the oil we import for transportation with this fuel that we can grow right here in America.”
So let me get this straight. The President mocks drilling for oil and says that all this talk about drilling for oil is no "silver bullet." He goes on to say that the stupid Republicans have been calling for more oil drilling and exploration for the past 30 yrs. Unfortunately, the Democrats have vetoed every bill and every effort to open up public lands for oil drilling, or even for the construction of new refineries (which is another reason for the uptick in the price of gas--no new oil refineries have been constructed here in the U.S. in the last 30 yrs!). We would be energy independent right now with gas prices well below $2.00 a gallon if we had been drilling for oil these past 30 yrs!!
But Forrest Obama Gump, the smartest man to ever occupy the Oval Office (or that's what the media would have us believe) says THE SOLUTION to our energy problem is pond scum (algae). If this new technology is so good and so proven, will President Obama sink his OWN money into it? Will Joe Biden and his energy czar Steven Chu invest their millions to help fund algae fuel? I don't think so.
Just like Solyndra, the President is going to sink billions of our tax dollars into this new, unproven, experimental biofuels research (which he says he really believes in, but not enough to invest his OWN money). Forrest Obama Gump pours billions of your tax dollars into start-up companies like Solyndra and before they go belly-up or file for bankruptcy, their CEOs and Board of Directors give back millions of dollars in campaign donations to Obama and the Democrat Party. Once upon a time, the FBI called this "money laundering." But I guess it's ok if you're Pres. Obama and the Democrat Party. This corruption is practiced by what we were told was going to be the "most transparent" and most ethical administration in U.S. history.
For those who are inclined to vote for Obama this coming November, here's a word of wisdom for you from Forrest Gump: "Stupid is as stupid does."
