Are you for it now?

So Obama has come out strong in his speech villifying the oil companies and every typical type of energy we use. He says we should be more like China in greening America(wth?). He is using the oil spill to push his cap and tax plan. He is hoping people will equate the 2 and change their mind. The house bill was a job killing, energy cost rising, red tape creating bill and he is hoping he can get support to get it through the Senate now.
Has the oil spill made you think it might be good for us now?

  • obama thinks we should be more like China in many other ways too. Of course he's using this to his advantage. He has nothing else to go on.

  • Well, now we know why we have been in Afghanistan for so long....the trillions of dollars of minerals under ther ground. Hehe. We knew already we were in Iraq because of the oil, now we want Afghanistan's minerals.
    But, if anyone speaks in favor of living "green" I am all for it too. It can't hurt. It could save us.

  • Well isn't it our Government who made them dig where it is to deep and dangerous???

    Haven't you notice when Government get involved there is always a disaster?

    What we need is less Government, not more!!!!!!!!!

    What was said "Don't let a disaster go to waste"

    Obama is using this to pass cap and tax plan. And that is not right!!

    Some of the "greener " stuff is plan BS. It has to do with making money. Look at Spain, they had to go back to what they where doing before.

  • he said greener like china. Seriously.

    He really has a low opinion of the collective intelligence of the country.

    We are already a really green family.

    And guess what, Mr. Obama. I keep the thermostate at 67 in the winter. In the summer, it's at 78. I would also never import beef halfway around the world. What a disgusting display that was.

    People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
