Obama: driving a green dagger into the heart of the American dream



When it comes to pinpointing the nadir of the Obama administration, future historians are going to suffer a serious case of option paralysis. Was it Benghazi? The NSA? His use of the IRS to harass the Tea party? The various scandals involving his black ops department, the EPA? Obamacare?

Personally, though, I think the one they will eventually plump for is Obama's Climate Action Plan of June 25 2013. The economy, after all, is everything. Without an economy you can't afford a domestic policy, let alone a foreign policy. So you'd think the very last thing any president would do as his country began to show the first vague signs of slow – and quite possibly illusory – recovery after a long recession would be to jeopardise it with a whole new raft of utterly pointless regulation and wasteful government expenditure. Why it would be like seeing a man drowning and, instead of throwing him a life line tossing him a lead weight. But that's just what President Obama has done with today's Climate Action Plan.

It will give still more power to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a hard-left political organisation swarming with deep-green ideologues fully committed to reducing living standards, killing consumer freedoms and hamstringing business with ever-more-stringent, scientifically-ill-founded environmental regulations based on nothing more than the "precautionary principle."

Oh, and of course, it will create lots of "green jobs." The kind that so far has cost the US taxpayer up to $2 million per job in subsidies.

And more Solyndras. There'll be plenty more of those, too.

I heard Obama enacted more BS in the last few days. The EPA needs shut the frick down. To all y'all spoiled brats in Louisiana wait till it hits you. 20 hour work week jobs. Hell even in Ohio where shale brought them jobs people were lined up 600 people for 200 jobs. Wait until your AC needs fixed and you see your bills.

What a plan, kill our current energy sources while relying on failed green technology for future energy. OK, it needs more time to be developed? Fine, lets do that. In the meantime we have to deal with reality. How people are falling for his BS is mind boggling.

re: Obama: driving a green dagger into the heart of the American dream


When I had to travel North to bury my FIL I saw windmills in PA. Anyone care to report how they are stupid? They are killing the birds that are more precious than human babies to proggies. Obama gutted the pipeline after wasting all the fricking money that proved no emissions would come of the project.

I despise Obama. He is a POS lying SOB a-hole. Oh hey, run out to your third job to pay for gas after you get a 20 hour work week. People can't afford to drive or look for work. Obama is a POS.

This is the truth on what is happening with America accept the food lines are being pumped to make it a career with lobster. The man that wants to work is screwed big time. He does not want free lobster and steak and to sit home and make babies like rabbits.

After reading these stories, I seriously think Obama is trying to weaken America. There is no other explanation. He can't be this dumb, he knows shite like this hurts the economy.

re: Obama: driving a green dagger into the heart of the American dream


If you are going to spend billions claiming to try and protect the environment then invest the damn money in natural gas infrastructure. China has an undisputed monopoly on solar power, so all money sent to that sector is literally being thrown away.

If Obama truly wanted to "help the environment" he would direct this money to develop the US the nat gas infrastructure, which we desperately need. The market would then destroy the much more expensive (and less environmentally friendly) coal, those job skills are transferable to the now expanded nat gas market, and the economy does not take anywhere near the hit that this sort of BS creates.

This move is 100% political pandering. His advisors absolutely have to know that this is no where near an efficient way to push actual environmental reform. But hot damn, it sure does look good to those on the far left. Another successful political strategy to further the cause of the few at the expense of country!

Are they dumping it into the Potomac river? It might could be salvaged. At least they're not burning it.

I would argue with that assertion, but I can't. You are correct.

I believe she is making reference to all the energy based jobs that could/will be effected by this man's reckless behavior as president.
