Barack Obama is now running commercials in PA on his "energy plan," which is to do nothing, let gas prices rise to $10 a gallon, and generate an economic catastrophe. I'm not making this up.
The Dems -- your opponents and McCain's -- have totally sold out to the worst forms of environmental extremists. They've accepted a form of environmentalism that excludes human beings. They are as close as it gets to being downright evil.
That is Obama's plan, and it is the absurd plan of every Democrat running for Congress in Pennsylvania. They have lost their blankety-blank minds. They should ALL lose, and I believe in fact they will -- if you get the energy message across. On one of my "HillarySupporters" sites, a woman said she wouldn't vote for John McCain because he supports drilling in the OCS. The following is my reply to her.
I'll be writing on all these issues on my "national" blogs. On coastal drilling, the position of Barack Obama and, sadly, most Democrats is that we should rely on Hugo Chavez and the Sheiks of Araby for our energy security. That will not fly -- even with the sheiks of Araby. What Obama (and, alas, many other Democrats) are advocating is that we do nothing (and I'm not kidding) until gasoline goes up to, say, $10 a gallon. Then, we naughty Americans with our SUVs (note: I don't own a car) will be forced to practice "conservation."
Of course, under a President Obama, our economy would be wrecked and food prices will have doubled and there will be chaos throughout the land. Am I exaggerating? I don't think so.
John McCain clearly agrees with my dire prediction, and that's why he supports producing and refining our own oil. He also believes in nuclear energy, which basically produces no greenhouse gases. In PA yesterday, he advocated advanced technology that will result in "clean coal," a development that's necessary to protect tens of thousands of mining jobs in Appalachia. Your amiable local Democratic congressman opposes all of these steps. McCain is right -- you are right -- and the "Obama-kins" are dead wrong.
Obama's do-nothing plan would lead to an utter catastrophe. All those "good-paying jobs" Democratic candidates like to talk about in Ohio, Michigan, and PA would disappear, and we would exoerience another Great Depression. Some solution! I'd love to debate before 75,000 people at Obama's coming Invesco Field (Denver) coronation, but he wants nothing to do with people like me who have his number. .
Steve adds: Promises, promises, I know. I will be writing soon about the campaigns of Marina Kats and Craig Williams, both of whom recognize the urgent need for American to produce and refine as much of our own oil as possible. In my own district (Melissa Hart's) and in Tom Manion's and Craig William's districts, I'm asking candidates to wake up any American voters that may be asleep. What the Democrats are in fact advocating can destroy our country. I don't believe the Dems' ludicrous "talking points" cover that reality.
Please -- if can give even $10 to each of the GOP candidates highlighed, please do so. Frankly, if they get elected, you'll save a lot more than $10 on gasoline alone. Get involved before you get run over by the Dems' mindless "energy policy."
