    From the Washington Examiner:

    I have a good idea how we can get off foreign oil: Drill for domestic oil.

    You mean like just about every closed down nuclear power plant has already done?

    That's a damned shame.

    Assachusetts governor, Coupe DeVille Patrick costs the tax payers of his state something like 60 million dollars for Evergreen Solar which took the money then moved its plant to China.

    So called green energy is green because of the tax dollars it eats.

    Nuclear Power plants get shut down because they eat subsidies and never make a profit or provide energy?

    Green Energy will never support our economy, it will only provide subsidies to those Green Energy Scammers.

    Tell that to Obama when he submits his budget, replete with over $40 billion in taxes on the domestic petroleum industry. As he said in his SOTU speech "I think they're doing fine on their own, don't you?".

    Let the green energy sector exist "on it's own". It can't.

    I think if anything the Middle East teaches us that we should use every last drop of the desert's oil and leave the Moslems with a nice dead sandbox to play in. Why else did the Moslems need the West to discover and produce the oil.

    Remember in the 70's when the Tennessee Valley Authority spent billions on nuke plants?
    They got them half-built, then buried it all. Litterally- burried, in the ground.

    Do the math lefties. Petroleum is the result of the decomposition of millions of years of plants and animals. Goggle eyed salavating left wingers think we can grow a crop of corn every year and cut down a generation of pine trees and achieve the same substance. It ain't gonna happen. Bush was wrong about it and Obama is so far off the map that he needs a CAT scan.
