Attention Ohio Voters: President Obama Killed 200,000 Jobs in Your State

While the President wants Ohioans to vote for him,  Obama killed 200,000 jobs for those same citizens… First, it was 20,000 jobs the Obama Administration delayed by punting a decision to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, which would bring 700,000 barrels of oil per day from Canada into the United States. Multiply that number by 10 and you have the amount of jobs the President is putting on hold by delaying a mineral lease sale in Ohio’s Wayne National Forest for oil and gas drilling. This decision kills jobs and denies Americans access to affordable energy. The Washington Examiner reports that Wayne National Forest already has […]

Green Energy Is Burning Up Your Green $$$

Obama’s insane energy policy is burning a hole through the American’s family budget. At the same time, our government is burning through our tax dollars while putting our future generations deeper and deeper in debt. How are Americans reacting to this insanity?

It is almost impossible for anyone to focus on one bad policy long enough […]

On Wednesday, August 6, 2008 I wrote: As I listened to Obama talk about his energy visions for the future, I imagined what it would be like to live in a world that is cured of it’s oil addiction- a world where there is no power generated by fossil fuels, and instead water and wind power the world. Ahh, indeed- the change we need… windmill from ancient Rhodes, waterwheel from Roman Spain… After two years of an Obama Presidency and Democrats in Congress, it appears that the world’s chief sources of large-scale energy production — coal, oil and nuclear power — […]

Does the “O” in Obama stand for Oil?

President Barack Hussein Obama announced recently that he is opening up the restrictions on offshore drilling for oil and natural gas resources. This follows more than a year of his policies designed to imposed delays and outright bans on oil exploration and drilling. No doubt a surprise for many on the right, this announcement comes rather unexpectedly. But where does it come from and why? Before we can answer those questions, let’s take a look at Obama’s policies on this subject to date. On February 4th, 2009, Ken Salazar, the Secretary of the Interior announced that the Bureau of Land […]
