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.

2. I think the Presidents's greatest flaw is....

... that he can win over the people who hate him with reasoned argument.


He should watch this clip from The Daily Show

"They don't like you Barack Obama" Jon uses a Dr. Seuss theme to make his point.
