Obama's Oval Office Speech

Like most of you, my wife and I watched Obama's speech last night. I think my wife summed it up the best. She said it was like being in the middle of a heart attack. You're laying in the emergency room, in overwhelming pain and gasping for breath. Then instead of using every tool in their arsenal to stop the immediate crisis, the doctors sit down and start advising you on proper diet and exercise.

Nowhere in his speech was there a forceful outline to stop the leak and clean up the spill. Instead, he is shamelessly using this crisis as a preface to implementing his foolish and expensive wind, solar, and Cap and Trade plans. He even distorted what China is doing about energy by saying that they were investing in clean technologies. Oh, really Mr. President? China is busy drilling for oil all over the world and quickly building coal-fired power plants so that they can -- using Obama's own words -- kick the world's ass economically. This guy is just unbelievable!
