'Never let a crisis go to waste'Topics: Political News and commentaries
The Obama administration's motto of "never let a crisis go to waste" is in play again. This time it's using the oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico to push the "alternative fuel" component of his naive propsed climate change legislation.
President Obama called the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico "heartbreaking" and said it makes the passage of climate change legislation all the more urgent this year.Here's a reality check for Barack:and his fellow Dems: the U.S. is decades away from shedding its reliance on oil.
"The spill in the Gulf, which is just heartbreaking, only underscores the necessity of seeking alternative fuel sources," Obama said after declaring climate change a "threat to our way of life" and calling on Congress to pass climate change bill "this year."
[...] America's oil addiction is not only a national security and economic threat, he said, but also sets the nation at a global competitive disadvantage.
What we need is more common sense, and a lot less politically inspired rhetoric and unnecessary and completely ineffective economy-destroying legislation.
