Of Keystone And Contraception

Several days ago, Obama put the kibbosh on the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to Texas.  It would have brought a plentiful supply of oil and gas into the country while creating thousands of jobs in the process.  Alas, it ran afoul of global-warming-hoax believers and some environmental groups.  So he bowed to the envirowhackos and turned his back (once again) on the country at large.  He and Sebelius also are moving to compel people of conscience to pay for coverage for contraception and abortifacients (see previous post).

On the surface, these two issues appear to have nothing in common - unless you ponder the likely motives of the Messiah Most Miserable.  However, consider that: in both scenarios, he is completely disregarding the legitimate interests of the majority of American citizens to satisfy radical elements of his electoral base: the global-warming envirowhackos on one hand and radical abortion supporters on the other.  Also consider the timing.  Does anyone really think it's a coincidence that he's paying obeiscance to these radical components of his base at a time so close to the November elections?  Moreover, he is scheduled to deliver the State of the Union address tomorrow evening.

You may rest assured that tomorrow's address will be not much more than poltical grand-standing.  Dare I predict that he'll spend a goodly bit of time braying about the Keystone stoppage and the HHS draconian measures?  I predict that he'll be thumping his chest about both of these acts of supreme stupidity.

Besides that, I predict the address will sound a lot like the following video - unless the Messianic Teleprompter undergoes a significant tune-up!  (Click here if you can't see embedded video)


  1. Would you please explain the whole Obama/teleprompter meme? I honestly don't understand it. Is it that conservatives think that Obama cannot speak extemporaneously, and never speaks in public without one, that he lacks the speaking skill to read one, or something else entirely?

  2. Nothing? I'm not being snarky here, I really don't get the joke. Since you reference it so often,,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&fp=1dbd3f8015f147e0&biw=1440&bih=679

    I thought you could explain it better than anyone. Sorry for the long link.

  3. Thomas, in your original comment - you answered your own question. Obviously you don't like the reference, but the language in your first comment leads me to believe that you understand what I and others are saying about his dependence on the teleprompter.

  4. Thomas, I agree you are "unrepentantly rude" to me (to use your very accurate language). Telling me to "shut up" will now have your comments silenced on this blog for a while. You might want to learn to mind your manners - just a suggestion!
