Palin on the Obama Administration's Shady Oil Dealings

Sarah Palin attacks Obama's decision to back off shore drilling with $2 Billion in guaranteed loans for the Brazilian oil company Petrobas. Hot Air notes the absurdity of backing a Brazilian oil company for off shore drilling when the company is not American and Obama's vehement opposition to off shore drilling during his campaign. Could there be a connection to the repositioning of Petrobas holdings by notorious Obama backer George Soros? "Inquiring minds want to know.

Palin's latest Facebook attack doesn't make those connections. I am sure a person of her position would need greater evidence before would go that far. Palin has plenty of ammunition for the suspicious deal without going that far. Here is a sample of what she has to say:

Today's Wall Street Journal contains some puzzling news for all Americans who are impacted by high energy prices and who share the goal of moving us toward energy independence.

For years, states rich with an abundance of oil and natural gas have been begging Washington, DC politicians for the right to develop their own natural resources on federal lands and off shore. Such development would mean good paying jobs here in the United States (with health benefits) and the resulting royalties and taxes would provide money for federal coffers that would potentially off-set the need for higher income taxes, reduce the federal debt and deficits, or even help fund a trillion dollar health care plan if one were so inclined to support such a plan.

So why is it that during these tough times, when we have great needs at home, the Obama White House is prepared to send more than two billion of your hard-earned tax dollars to Brazil so that the nation's state-owned oil company, Petrobras, can drill off shore and create jobs developing its own resources? That's all Americans want; but such rational energy development has been continually thwarted by rabid environmentalists, faceless bureaucrats and a seemingly endless parade of lawsuits aimed at shutting down new energy projects.

  1. It's too hard to prove act of corruption in White House especially if the powers-that-be are experts from Chicago.

    Focusing on hypocrisy of Climate Change policies of the One is safer, and logical.

    Bring back the decisions of oil drilling to the states level, Mr. President.

  2. There's plenty to focus on in terms of hypocrisy for sure. It is an amazing coincidence that Soros changed his holdings only a few days before this announcement and it was a great catch by Hot Air. It would definitely be difficult for someone like Palin to show and would likely take away from her message.
