1. Sadly, 49% of voters voted for Drill Baby Drill. And now that the wells are in they can be shut
off, at least until we need fossil energy in an emergency (Iran has a bad Arab Spring). I hope he is telling them that the fossil fuels industry must slow down and they must move to Renewable Energy sources: Americans will not support a war for oil when many jobless people can move from unemployment insurance to jobs in various infrastructures and green energy.
In my opinion, Obama is having to seek a balance between jobs, subsidies, and energy regulation to the best of our national security. Sadly, the Earth is warming during the rant of the 49%. Republicans have made a terrible mistake in obstructing the various JOB BILLS that could have halted the NEED for this pipe line business.
