'Petroloo' for Obama? Make It Happen!

It's clear that the President's agenda includes expensive energy.

So perhaps it's time to start the '12 campaign.

...A day should not go by on which Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner aren’t giving a press conference about how Obama’s energy policies are to blame for the soaring price at the pump and for killing domestic energy jobs at home.

...Obama’s Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has blocked the exploration for and production of shale oil in the Rockies, Dakotas, and elsewhere, even though we sit atop enough shale oil reserves to last us a century alone. Let’s repeat that. Just in shale oil, America’s energy needs could be met for 100 years, without the use of any imports.

Obama has stopped exploration in the Gulf, and in Alaska, too.

At $4.50 or $5.00/gallon, an economic recovery is not going to happen.

Oil shale exploration and extraction is exploding right now. Not sure how salazar is blocking it. Theyre concerned that fracing could impact ground water conditions but thats really not impeding development right now.

Careful, someone will make an error when googling and come across a reference to the "peterloo masssacre." Next thing you know you'll have federal agents at your door.
