Obama’s Laughable Energy Policy

The president’s proposals are humorous, not helpful.

By Deroy Murdock

 

 

 

From the sublime to the ridiculous, the Obama administration’s energy policy has devolved into self-parody.

President Obama recently announced that he would accelerate the construction of . . . ta da! . . . the southern half of the Keystone XL pipeline. This portion, conveniently enough, does not reach Canada, which yearns to send America petroleum from its oil sands in Alberta. Obama’s move is like building an airport runway while banning the taxiway that would connect it to the passenger terminal.

The only thing sillier than Obama’s plan would have been his announcing it while wearing pants, but nothing north of his waist.

Obama, naturally, shirks responsibility for keeping Keystone a pipe dream. As he claims, “The rushed and arbitrary deadline insisted on by congressional Republicans prevented a full assessment of the pipeline’s impact.”Rushed?

Team Obama has had its entire tenure to study Keystone. As a State Department timeline confirms, it received TransCanada’s Keystone application on September 19, 2008 — under President George W. Bush. As Obama was inaugurated on January 20, 2009, Washington already had evaluated Keystone for four months and one day. It weighed the pipeline for nearly three more years, whereupon Obama blamed GOP monsters for forcing him into a snap judgment within 60 days of last December Scissors-32x32.png

Well done, @Pepper! I'm sure the rest of the alphabet could be filled, as well.
