“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

Obama is hostile to the American economy

This cartoon, borrowed from regular reader Billy, pretty accurately sums up the problem with the Keystone Pipeline's passage. Obama detests anything to do with energy production in the US if it isn't "green". He wants gas to be painfully expensive. Expensive gas forces Americans to embrace so-called "green" energy alternatives. He predicted that energy prices would necessarily skyrocket under his administration and he was correct.

The Keystone Pipeline from Canada down to our Gulf refineries wouldn't so much affect the price at the pump as it would create thousands of jobs. It would also reduce our importation levels of middle east petroleum for refining. That's always a good thing.

Anybody who can't see Obama's hostility toward the American economy is a moron.
