Obama: I'm Not Telling the Story Well
The Continental Oil Company has made an oil and gas find bigger then Prudhoe Bay Alaska which can make us energy independent from Saudi Arabia by the end of the decade. Obama’s reaction? When the Oil Company’s president had the opportunity to inform Obama, he replied: “Oil and gas will be important for the next few years. But we need to go on to green . . . ”
Concurrently, the Justice Department brought charges against Continental for killing 28 non-endangered birds. (Anyone know of charges against Obama wind turbines which kill thousands?) Anyway, the charges carry criminal penalties and up to six months in jail.
Around the country, poor black parents are being jailed because they enrolled their children in another district’s better school. School districts hire special investigators to follow kids home in order to verify their true residences.
In a recent interview Obama explained why things aren’t working out for him: “The irony is the reason I was in this office is because I fashioned a story to the American people.” But “that narrative thread we just lost.” Duh.
All of the above is just one day in the WSJ.
