What if President Obama Supported Affordable, Reliable Energy?

In a hypothetical world, our President would support America’s energy boom wholeheartedly. Unfortunately, that is not the world we live in.

Until that day comes, Andrew Stiles of the Washington Free Beacon has provided us with a speech the President would give if he actually supported the energy that keeps our lights on.

“What you should’ve asked me is what I plan to do about it [climate change]. Here’s what I’m not gonna do. I’m not going to support policies that will cause energy prices to “necessarily skyrocket,” as the president has said. That’s not a serious solution. Not when hardworking middle class families are still struggling to make ends meet.

You know, some of my opponents are out there literally arguing that we should stop drilling for oil tomorrow, and see if we can get by on wind turbines, or solar panels, or algae. Yes, algae. You know, the stuff that grows on ponds. Go figure.”

Wouldn’t it be refreshing to hear that kind of rhetoric from the White House instead of what we currently get? Stiles continues:

“Now, I understand that there are Democratic donors—some of them billionaires—who have investments in these sorts of companies and would do pretty well for themselves if my opponents got their way.

But I’m not interested in helping a handful of rich guys get even richer. I’m interested in making sure that hardworking Americans aren’t breaking the bank to heat their homes, or fill up the minivan. I would rather they spend that money on groceries, tuition, or maybe starting a new business.”

The entire piece is worth a read. You can find it on the Free Beacon’s website.
