Obama, 2008: I Expect Americans To Share In the Sacrifice By Accepting Higher Energy Prices, Caused By My "Investments," "Until Technology Catches Up"

That would be the various boondoggle-tech he's "invested" your tax-dollars in. When those garbage pits of malfeasance start paying off, we'll be able to pay a little less. He claims.

Until then, though: He tells an audience they'll have to get used to paying more for energy.

This is in direct response to a student asking him what sacrifices he expects the nation to bear, by the way.

Well, he did warn us, didn't he?

Of course now, all of his flunkies and flacks are claiming he never intended anything like what he promised us would happen.

I prefer the "Old" approach to emerging technology: We adopt new technology when it is better and cheaper than the old technology, not when it is worse and more expensive, forced to convert over by a government demanding we pay more for less. So we can reap all these speculative benefits in a hypothetical future.

Thanks to Morgen. He found this and cut this, so this makes this, I guess, an exclusive.

In case you didn't know, John Sexton of Verum Serum got hired by Breitbart.com. Alas, they wanted him to shutter the site during his time of employment. So this is Morgen of that site.

Posted by: Dang at March 15, 2012 07:13 PM (BbX1b)

39 Obama in 1990.

“There’s certainly racism here. There are certain burdens that are placed, more emotionally at this point than concretely,” Obama said.

“Professors may treat black students differently, sometimes by being, sort of, more dismissive, sometimes by being more, sort of, careful because they think, you know, they think that somehow we can’t cope in the classroom,” he said.

Obama sees the inner cities as the front lines of racism.

“It’s critical at this stage for people who want to see genuine change to focus locally. And it is crucial that we figure out how to rebuild the core of leadership and institutions in these communities,” he said.

For five years before law school, Obama took on that task in Chicago. As the director of a program that tried to bring South Side churches, unions and block associations together on projects, Obama was not trying to solve local problems, he said. Instead he sought to construct something more lasting — a forum for the community, “I’m interested in organizations, not movements, because movements dissipate and organizations don’t,” Obama said.

America suffered when the movements of the 1960s dissipated, he said. Those movements succeeded in raising doubts about harmful traditions of sexism and racism, but failed to offer a viable alternative.

“Hopefully, more and more people will begin to feel their story is somehow part of this larger story of how we’re going to reshape America in a way that is less mean-spirited and more generous,” Obama said.

“I mean, I really hope to be part of a transformation of this country.”And the future of black people and of America generally? “It depends on how good I do my job,” he said.

Today you should be asking that to Hilda Solis, proud member of the CPUSA and our current Labor Secretary. She unleashed Cass Sunstein's new 10,000 regulations, one of which is prohibiting children of farmers from working on the farm, 'cause "there hasn't been any farm regulation for 40 years. It's a very dangerous proposition," she said. There are 23 fatalities a year among those under age 20." Meanwhile, there are thousands of teenage traffic deaths per year.

Keeping a family farm going is hard enough, but Bongo is working on making it impossible. So, hedge funds are buying up all the farmland for Soreass. It's the old commie playbook, most recently via Mugabe. He who has the farmland decides if you'll eat.

On the part of race, mainly the 1960s movements succeeded in pillaging, burning, killing and driving out urban white people. On the part of sexism they destroyed the monogamous family unit. As for the "failing to offer a viable alternative" to the horrors of productive people raising families in the homes their ancestors built... what alternative can there possibly be?

The reason we're having $1.3 Trillion ($1,300 Billion) deficits is because the porkulus money $800 Billion ++ is being spent year after year.. Thats why Reid doesn't want to pass a budget. So he can waste as much money as possible on unions and useless bullcrap. The total is near $3,000 billion now. That much money being thrown out of a helicopter... in the middle of the Atlantic. Nice.

This should be the headline news every day. They should be planning the treason trials already. Why in gods green earth isn't this being HAMMERED HOME?! The porkulus money has been added to the baseline of the budget.

78 64 Yep, drilling has quadrupled in the USA since Jan 2009.

That's somewhat true. It has increased substantially-- on private land. Because oil prices are very high, and equipment and resources previously devoted to drilling on public land and offshore have been diverted-- by opposition fromObama's Interior and Energy departments-- to privately-owned land assets.

On public land, we're under a de facto drilling embargo. Obama and his administration were held in contempt of court in Feb of last year for refusing to even consider drilling permits.

By Nov. the effing Independents will see the improvement in the jobless rate and decide that maybe having OCommie in the WH isn't so bad after all. They will still vote GOP for Congress Critter to keep OFucktard in check.

But, then, if gasoline prices stay high, all bets are off.

You know... last week, the two memes were "the presdeint can't do anything about gasoline prices" and "if we drilled today it would take ten years to get the oil out." This week, the two memes are "the president is going to release the strategic oil reserve to ease gasoline prices" and "we're drilling, and in fact, we've always been drilling." Can you refute this?

Crude oil fell from $147/bbl in July 2008 to $33 in December due to the only Financial/Credit Crash since 1929.

We
have quadrupled drilling in the USA since Obama was inaugurated to no
avail due to world demand. What makes the Idiocracy nuts is that all
energy input prices are falling - coal is 47% of 2008 highs and natgas
is 20% off its highs despite persistent cries of INFLATION from the
BeckTard/Goldbugs.

Gold is the last remaining bubble commodity. Its crash will bring salty tears to the wingnuttery Paultards.

Countering President Obama’s claim that he’s doing everything he can to increase domestic oil production, a top House Republican Thursday released data from the Energy Department showing that fossil fuel production on federal lands has fallen since Mr. Obama took office. The information compiled by the Energy Information Administration shows that total fossil fuel production on federal lands has dropped 7 percent since 2009 and 13 percent since 2003. From 2010 to 2011, total oil production on federal lands is down 14 percent and gas production dropped 11 percent.

Obama's stunning energy policy failure is the result of a perfect storm of his arrogant self-assuredness and his utter lack of understanding of how free markets work.

He thought he was so damn much smarter than everyone and that all he had to do was throw money at green energy start-ups and at the same time drive up the cost of oil through inaction and regulations. Never once did he have an understanding that if there was a viable alternative to oil, the free market would have found it by now. Like the only thing lacking was a lack of capital investment.

173 Seriously, I'm all in favor of increasing production
up the wazoo, but even if we ramped up to the degree that it brought
the price of gas down to a number that won't kill the economy, the Feds
would see that as a bad thing and would borrow and print even more money
because they are debasing the currency on purpose.

--As if the average voter gets that. In any case, what's important is that inflation continues to be worst with fuel and food, two inelastic facts of life. Plus, higher fuel costs also make food costs go up.

btw, I appreciate that some folks in mundane jobs could constantly say the rosary while they work, that would not have worked for me. When one is solving Engineering problems, decades of the rosary would be distracting.

181 I think it wd be very shrewd to have the GOP candidate make energy production the #1 issue of the campaign. And we can never get enough of this wisdom of the late great Milton Friedman:

"We've always had a finite amount of energy...We
had finite supplies of wood in the early pioneer days. How did we make
the transition from using wood to using coal, from using coal to using
oil, from using oil to using natural gas? HOW IN GOD'S NAME DID WE MAKE
THAT TRANSITION WITHOUT A FEDERAL ENERGY AGENCY?" [emphasis added]

Clarence, you are a mendacious lickspittle of a festering hemorrhoid.

"The Gulf Permit Index documents that both deep-water and shallow-water permit issuance continue to lag the 2009 - 2010 average.

The three-year historical average had been seven deep-water permits issued per month; now the Obama administration has it down to two per month, a drop of 71%.

The three-year average for shallow-water drilling permits had been 14.7 per month; the Obama administration now has that down to 2.3 per month, a drop of 84%.

The average approval time has increased from an average of 60.6 days in the preceding five years to 109 days in 2011.

And more drilling plans are rejected than ever. The five-year average had been 73.4 percent approval; now it’s down to only 34 percent of drilling plans approved.

Forty-nine (48% of all [Gulf Coast businesses] surveyed) companies reported laying off workers. Sixty-five (65.6%) companies surveyed reported no hiring or only replacement of lost employees. Of the companies that did hire, numbers were generally low with only one company reporting hiring over 50 workers in the last year. Some businesses have been cutting costs by reducing employees’ hours and/or salaries. Thirty-eight companies reported reducing hours and salaries of employees, sometimes as much as 40% in order to avoid layoffs."

267 Hi Morgen! Obama is a miserable clusterfuck of a miserable tyrant.

268 The only sacrifice I will share with Obama is that he is a one termer.

269 7 That's why Chu looked so incredulous at the Congressional hearings for the DoE shoving money into failed green projects. They have no concept why their ideas aren't accepted and their work not praised.

OR why the laws of physics don't bend to the
will of the ONE.

270 Robert Reich has decided to come out swinging, blaming gas price increases on Wall Street speculators. I'm not sure of the math, but I believe he's saying that 80 cents of the increase is going into speculators' pockets.

The stats @ Slate seem suspect. Reich throws out a percentage of contracts held by financial speculators, but doesn't state if that's by raw counts or by size.

He's also playing weasel word games, using statistics for energy in the same sentence as oil, to imply that we're very close to being a net exporter of oil. The reality is that half our oil/gas is imported, and any "energy" exports are going to be NatGas or coal.

273 The Scoamf owns the current gas prices!

Its all a plot to make 'Green" loosing money technology more affordable, instead of letting good ole capitalist, market driven non commie bullshit, drive the price.

275 What the president said was perfect perfect, I can find no fault whatsoever!
*licks boots licks boots*
In fact he said it perfectly, he dresses nicely and I got this thrill up my leg. I want to pay more taxes so he can enrich his scamming green energy campaign bundlers. You people need to get with the program and pay more like good ole Warren Buffet whose company is currently fighting the IRS over taxes.

276 Just saw a live interview of Gingrich on CBS where he was questioned on this very subject. His answers were cogent, sensible, and rational and his presentation was masterful. He looked and sounded like a President. I know that so many people are all gaga over how Romney looks so Presidential. To me, Gingrich looks like he already had the job, while Romney comes off as still interviewing for it.

I also know this, whomever that guy was who was interviewing Newt, was clearly uncomfortable at how good Newt's answers were. He kept pushing on why doesn't Newt just drop out--like it would be a big relief to have him stop talking about obama's failed ideas.

277 Why you racist, flat-earthers who don't even know how to use a telephone so mean-spirited? Just shut-up, eat your peas, and huddle next to the soft dim glow of your $50 light bulb running off of the power generated by Debbie Wasserman Shultz peanut butter mouth like a good citizen. Oh and don't forget to do 60-minutes of jumping jacks everyday because Obamacare ain't gonna pay to fix your fat ass when it gets broken.

278
Republicans want Obama to fail, making Americans suffer, just so they can get elected

They are destroying our country, just to win the power of the White House and Congress.

Its pretty sick if u think about us.

Not to mention, the way they have been for at least half a century.

When they are in the majority they spend like drunk fools, trample all over the constitution and tell people “Deficits don’t matter” and “If you haven’t done anything wrong, the US government should be able to do whatever they want and spy on you.”

NOW: Put a Democrat into the White House and all of a sudden, these same Republicans get out their guns, literally, saying how things have changed so much, and they will fight to the death for their “Don’t Tread On Me” flags.

FIRST: George W. Bush signed the Patriot Act, which completely trumps the US Constitution.

SECOND: George W. Bush administration forcefully disarmed people during the Katrina disaster.

THIRD: George W. Bush wanted to invade Iraq, when they should of stayed in Afghanistan, but he had finally found a way where he could get away with something he wanted to do for about a decade.

FOURTH: George W. Bush dismantled the branch of government created to find Osama Bin Laden.

FIFTH: He passed the ‘Faith Based Initiatives’ which is unconstitutional, he did this not with the help of congress, but he forced it through, like a Dictator does.
SIXTH: They hate the fact that Obama got (not killed! He didn't shoot him) one of the biggest terrorist in existance, but they want to give credit to Bush. Give credit to exact same man who, he himseld, said that he QUIT looking for Bin Laden!

Now, I can name many more things, but I want, and granted Obama is basically just following in Bush’s footsteps, it was Bush who opened up the can of worms, he created a precedent, that all future Presidents can use as an excuse to do whatever they want.
Obama is no marxist he is trying to take back the USA from the zionist neocon run Bush thugs and start to rebuild from all the damage the antichrist Bush has done here and abroad.
Obama is no communist, and he's not a socialist either. He's a corporatist. Ask any real socialist or communist if Obama is either and they will laugh in your dumb face.
Obama is a better Christian than most of the hateful righties. The USA Political Right Wing has been irresponsibly stirring up hate by preying upon the naive and fearful.

279 Obama's speech is incoherent! He completely lost his train of thought when he was discussing SUV and being subsidized or else he has no idea what he is talking about. I love having a Marxist leader telling his subjects how he can better there lives by making stuff more expensive and less useful.

Wow Obama followers are just idiots.
