And maybe you are, considering the stuff he tells you and that you cheer at all those rallies where his admirers faint in ecstasy or something.
The latest LIE--and, yes, I dare use that word and I don't mean fabrication, falsity, hyperbole, misrepresentation, tall story, misstatement or fable.
Obama's latest LIE is that the Keystone Pipeline will only create about 50 jobs, even though he himself said at one time it would create 2000 jobs which also is false.
Hahaha! Our POUTUS is so cute and funny! He laughs about this stupid idea of the Keystone Pipeline in front of all his fannies who laugh and cheer and mock those silly unionists and Republicans and energy conservationists who realize the value of the pipeline and its impact on our country.
Apparently becoming energy independent is silly too.
But our brilliant POUTUS knows best, as Townhall observes:
Quite the cavalier attitude from a president who's in the middle of a potemkin "jobs" tour, with the national U-6 unemployment rate hovering above 14 percent. Discounting 2,000 American jobs as a "blip" might strike many unemployed Americans as an odd formulation. Beyond that, he's wrong on the numbers, ignoring the dramatically more optimistic findings of his own State Department. The Washington Post's fact-checker lays out the stats, awarding Obama "two Pinocchios" for his misleading characterization:Apparently it hasn't occurred to Mr. SmartyPants that all those boom town jobs would resonate in all industries--like restaurants local landowners, hoteliers and so forth--in the areas that are creating the Keystone Pipeline.
This "cavalier" attitude is pretty much POUTUS's approach to life, such as when he laughed at any pipeline development because it'd take TEN YEARS and we can't wait that long!!! Har!
In fact, from MyBarackObama's own website, we learn some of the goals of candidate Obama:
With oil prices doubling in the past year, Barack Obama and Joe Biden believe we ... Eliminate Our Current Imports from the Middle East and Venezuela within 10 Years ... Obama and Biden will require oil companies to develop the 68 million acres of land ... Prioritize the Construction of the Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline. [This part is available only on the Google search.]
- Promote the Responsible Domestic Production of Oil and Natural Gas.
An Obama-Biden administration will establish a process for early identification of any infrastructure obstacles/shortages or possible federal permitting process delays to drilling in the Bakken Shale formation, the Barnett shale formation, and the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska.
Prioritize the Construction of the Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline.
As president, Obama will work with stakeholders to facilitate construction of the pipeline. Not only is this pipeline critical to our energy security, it will create thousands of new jobs.
But anyway, the Keystone Pipeline will generate far more jobs than Obama admits, not to mention how many jobs could be created if other shale is developed.
Financial Post takes issue with the number of possible jobs created, saying that a POUTUS who mocks the creation of private sector jobs--no matter the number--is "beyond belief."
In fact, Obama's figures directly contradict his own administration figures on the number of jobs Keystone would create. FP:
That’s in direct opposition to his own administration’s draft report on the project.
The analysis released earlier this year by the U.S. State Department found that the pipeline would support 42,100 jobs during the one- to two-year construction period, with total wages of about US$2-billion, although only 35 permanent and temporary jobs will remain once Keystone XL is fully operational.Huh. Now don't you feel stupid, Obamabot?
Eh, I didn't think so.
