Obama incoherent in Maryland

First, let me just say:  Drill, baby, Drill.  Drill, Drill, Drill…..

From the New York Times:

There are a few places, Mr. Obama noted with a smile, where he has not authorized drilling: the National Mall; the middle of Chesapeake Bay; or underneath the houses of the people in his audience. When politicians tell you, “Drill, Baby, Drill,” the president said to the crowd, answer, “We’re doing that. Tell me something new.”

The youthful audience responded with chants of “Yes, we can” and “Four more years,” though two people collapsed during Mr. Obama’s remarks. The president reminded people to eat, if they knew they were going to be standing for a long time.

From what I could tell, in Maryland yesterday, the president was largely incoherent and barely covering up his anger with what I suppose he thought was humor.  And as the NYT noted:  “The youthful audience responded with” cheers.   He is going to younger and younger audiences I guess because they are easily led and chant appropriately, not being old enough to have a job, support a family, or probably not even to buy their own gas.

He has a script going on for these faintings.  He says the same thing every time.  I think he uses the faintings to detract from any sign of displeasure from the crowd.  I have seen him do this before, not that I think there was any dissent among the child audience yesterday.

House says drill – Senate and White House oppose

In a 243-179 vote Thursday, the House passed a measure that would open up areas off the West and East coasts, Alaska and the eastern Gulf of Mexico to drilling.  All republicans and even 28 democrats voted for the bill.

The Senate is unlikely to pass it and it is opposed by the White House.

If we started drilling, I have no doubt that gas prices will start to go down.

This puts it on the line as to who is responsible for the persistent high gas prices.  They are trying every way possible to divert attention but fault is squarely at the doorstep of the democrats and the white house.  Without any doubt.

They would rather fund drilling for Brazil and have us buy oil from them.  Disgraceful.

The democrats and the white house want us all to be bankrupt.
