The “Crucify Them” Presidency

Kimberley Strassel should get her own website.  This pretty much captures the issue at hand.

What government–other than a Kirchner-esque banana republic–could ever say it had a desire to “crucify” oil and gas companies and still stand?

The answer?  You guessed it.  Obama’s.

Full frontal: If you wanted America to fail

Finally some strong media coming out that fights the Message at a visceral level.

If you want America to fail you will vote to re-elect Obama.

How the Democrats frame the election

Do you vote for the guy whose economic and energy policies you don’t like (and under whose leadership the last 3 1/2 years things have been bad) or for the guy you don’t know can connect with ordinary people’s everyday challenges?

Seems like a no brainer to me. Certainty of a bad thing on the one hand vs a vague concern that the other candidate isn’t enough of a regular guy.
Besides the fact that the criticism of Romney smells like pure pandering Dem-speak, it’s hardly a rational position. And while we know these things are largely emotional, you gotta like this framing of the choice if you’re Romney.

The Keystone Kop in the White House

Overcoming Obama.

You mean my government oil solution might make things worse?

The law of unintended consequences (or are they?) strikes again.  You mean reduced liquidity might increase volatility?  But wouldn’t that make the government solution worse than the problem it was supposed to solve? Imagine that.

Thank goodness our President understands the math.

And the biggest oil speculator of all is…

The White House.
