And you too can figure out the sad truth about the Left and our soaring gas prices. King Shamus explains
David Harsanyi calls it like it is.
The left’s “energy” initiatives of the past decade — the entire purpose of energy policy, in fact — have been aimed at artificially driving fossil fuel prices up to incentivize the bitter clingers to embrace the government’s Utopian energy schemes. No secret has been made of it. In 2008, candidate Barack Obama was asked by CNBC’s John Harwood, “So could the (high) oil prices help us?” Obama: “I think that I would have preferred a gradual adjustment.” Sudden spikes are bad (politically speaking), but gradual price spikes? Helpful. That same year, current U.S. “Energy” Secretary (then just a zany professor) Steven Chu clarified that “somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”
Translation: This administration wants to screw us. Better still, they don’t just want to punish Americans for the nerve of having cars and plastic things and man-made heating sources in our homes and stuff. No, they want to do all that while lying to folks that these draconian wallet-killing job-shedding measures will help the pwecious widdle delicate environment.
Exactly right! And, of course they also wish to use those prices to blame “BIG OIL”, furthering their Marx-inspired class warfare rhetoric as well. Prices are high, something the Left not only wants, but causes, and they blame greedy capitalists! See how really easy political analysis is? This is why so many on the main stream media loathe bloggers. Bloggers expose the truith! We do not really need all those talking heads on TV, and all those established columnists either. We can , and DO, break down politics as well, and often better than they do!
