As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

President Obama to Visit an Oil Field!!

Updated March 19 at 8:00 am ET

With gasoline prices marching north, President Obama next week will take a break from worshipping the sun and putting his finger to the wind when he actually highlights energy projects that provide lots of energy.

The White House is desperate to repair the damage being done to Obama’s campaign by the price at the pump, and aides have suddenly begun portraying him as a great apostle of oil and gas drilling.

In what may go down as one of the worst political blunders of his presidency, Obama late last year bowed to environmentalists’ pressure and rejected the Keystone pipeline’s route through part of Nebraska, delaying by at least a year a major new source of oil just as gasoline prices started going through the roof.

Wednesday, he’ll be in Carlsbad, New Mexico to inspect oil and gas production fields located on federal lands.

Obama will be in Oklahoma Thursday – yes, Oklahoma – to “discuss his Administration’s commitment to improving and supporting the infrastructure that helps us leverage our domestic resources,” the White House said.

I assume these are code words for the infrastructure to get fossil fuels out of the ground, since he sure ain’t going to Oklahoma for votes. He’s more likely to strike oil.

According to ABC News, Obama will staging a photo op in Cushing, Oklahoma, which is on the Keystone pipeline project’s “southern route,” of which the administration approves.

Of course, the two day trip also features a solar facility and a meeting with people conducting “some of the country’s most advanced energy-related research and development.”

But the White House is clearly eager to show that Obama loves the non-advanced stuff too, since that’s what the country is going to be running on for the foreseeable future.

  2. A Commy at a drill rig.

    I dare the wus to clime up a pumping well and slied out to the hammer head and ride it like a bronc rider. I did it drunk as a teen certainly a man who walks on water can swing it.

  3. No one with an ounce of sense believes that Obama is in anyway supportive of the oil industry and will see this as nothing more than a crass attempt at pandering to the voters. Unfortunately, those who still actually support Obama after 3 years don’t HAVE an ounce of sense so they’ll eat this crap sandwich and wash it down with a big glass of Socialist kool-aid.

    • Typical of IDIOTS.. BHOZO is going in the Desert to look for Scum Covered ponds and call them OIL FIELDS .. FOR Libturds edification… SCUM is ALGAES…or anew monicker for BHOZO… SCUM that is

  4. Cushing isn’t exactly the ‘oilfield’ it once was.If he were to actually go to a drilling location for pictures he would stand out like Pee Wee Herman in an NFL locker room. Absolutely in an alien landscape for him, something he has zero knowledge or experience.

    There used to be three refineries there. Now there are none. What is there is a huge storage facility with large tanks that will make a great backdrop to say ‘see we have lots of oil’. I hope something someone points out from the environmental point of view is there are many pipelines running into the facility.. and you can’t see a one of them in the surrounding country side unless it rises for maintenance access. Only way you know there is a pipeline is if a sign tells you there is one below you.

  5. Better bring an umbrella and a row boat, because when you get here Cushing should be pretty well soaked. Oh, and leave your beer…It would get water logged….But then again you probably like that ‘lite’ stuff…ya whim…

  6. the keystone pipeline would not provide as much as oil domestically as people think. I have read that 95% of that oil would be shipped overseas and read other places that all of it would be shipped out of the country.

  7. I’m trying to decide if OhBummer is really this evil or really this stupid. His policies are even bad for MOST of the axxwipe Democrats who’ll be voting for him in November — but they’re too distracted in pixxing contests with Republican bloggers to notice that he’s blown a hole in the bottom of their boats.

  8. THE AGE OF OHBUMMER, KING OF THE REPUBLIC OF LIES

    OhBummer is a fool for attacking the American Tea Partiers. Heck, he thought that he had all of us hoodwinked, hornswoggled, and bamboozled. He’s annoyed that the Tea Partiers are not grateful to him for hijacking the American healthcare system — the greatest act of vandalism perpetrated upon the American people since a gang of jihadi frootloops and loonytoons hijacked some planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center towers — and the Pentagon, and made a failed attempt to crash into the White House — and instead drilled a hole in a Pennsylvania farm thanks to some very courageous American passengers.

    And — now widely seen for what he is — the president presents a problem for the Democrat-captured media. They pump out his propaganda for him — and, like the opinion monitors in Ayn Rand’s novel, “Atlas Shrugged” — they are dodging brickbats and rotten vegetables.

    He’s pompous, pampered, and pretentious — a pseudo-intellectual fop. He’s a glorified, smooth-lyin’ dandy, and slicker than Sick Willie Clinton. He’s a dictator-on-the-make, a bloodsxcking, predatory humanitarian thug, and a low-down skunk.

    He’s a fraud and a swindler. He lies when he inhales and he lies when he exhales; his oxygen is the falsification of reality. He lies, placidly and laconically, as if deception were a soporific drug.

    He’s a friend of the poor and the downtrodden — indeed, you can hear the milk of human kindness sloshing around inside of him when he walks.

    He declares himself the post-racial leader — “Let me be clear!” he intones — and he hides behind his race, daring his critics to put their reputation for fairness at risk.

    He pauses to ponder the portent of his propaganda — and it is fakery; he smiles and his mendacity comes shining through. Shake hands with Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer — “The Mistake of ‘08” — the illegal alien squatter in the White House until his “papers” have been lab-tested for age and chemicals, etc — the community organizer of the Fleabagger Party — the King of The Republic of Lies — and America’s first and last Arab president. Now count your fingers.

  9. Obama’s adviser’s may want to tone down the over exposure, I mean it’s enough already (basketball games, Amercian Idol). I know this may be a news flash to him and all that worship at his alter but some of us actually do NOT like what he’s trying to do to our country. Some of us DO NOT LIKE YOU SIR or your agenda, I know, I know, it’s shocking. And guess what? Foxnews didn’t brainwash me, can you believe it??!!

  10. ROUNDS COOKING OFF

    The Democrats have this “enemies list” — denominated in epithets aimed at the people whose wallets they wish to hijack and take up residence inside. You can be a “Racist!” and you can be a “Homophobe!” and you can be a “T-bagger!” — a homosexual man taking his partner’s scrotum into his mouth. You can be “Selfish!” and you can be a “Wacko!” and you can be a “Hick!” and you can be a “Rube!” and you can be an “Extremist!” You can be a “Right-wing-nut!” and you can be “Mentally Ill” and you can be “Deranged!” and you can be a “Warmonger!” and you can be “Unenlightened!” and you can be a “FatCat!” and you can be a “Nazi!” and you can be a “Fascist!” — although no one more closely approaches the precise description of “Nazi!” or “Fascist!” than the usual Democrat propagandist — either official, or self-appointed.

    Lies, after all, are the heart and soul and the sword and shield of the Democrat party.

    So all you have to do to occupy multiple epithets on the Democrats’ enemies list is to insist that they take their hands off yourself, off your wallet, off your property, off your kids, off your diet, off your healthcare, off your household appliances, off your car, off your bank account, off your weapons of self-defense, off your liberty, and off your freedom of speech. Insist on all these good things – and that qualifies you to be spat upon by nasty, mean-spirited sc_m — by The Friends of All Mankind — by a gang of lying, thieving, dope-smoking, pill-popping, coke-snorting, sticky-fingered, bloodsxcking, tax-eating, gun-stealing, predatory humanitarian thugs — by the Democrat party, in other words. No political party in the history of America more profoundly deserves absolute and outright destruction.

  11. THIS IS BS! MY company is part of getting the pipeline job, not OBAMA. He’s just going there to take credit for it. In fact, this is part of the pipelines that he turned down bc it originally was supposed to go to Canada. Instead they can only stay here in the US, meaning LESS work! The Secret service called us and TOLD us to build him a platform. He has NO business there!!! Seriously? He’s gunna make US build HIM a platform so he can have his little photo op?? SUCH CRAP!

  12. I wonder if he will be taking the Beast to run around in. If so wouldn’t it be easy to high center it somewhere on the back roads of either NM or OK. Might then run over it ‘with him inside’ with a D12 Cat.

  13. Believe what I say in sound bites rather than my actions-that seems to be the plan of this administration. I can only hope that the majority of people will not be taken in by this dog and pony show. OF course, there will always be those for whom Obama can do no wrong and they are beyond help.

  14. What the hell is your problem with Oklahoma….stupid ass comment on your part….bashing some state were real people live rather than your damn effete liberal east code morons

  15. His desperation is truly showing….I cannot believe that he doesn’t realize what a fool he is making of himself. Wonder if he will bring a wad of algae grass along with him.

  16. owebama was playing golf last week and on every drive, he’d slice the ball off the tee. He asked his cadddy for advice. The caddy told him, “There’s a piece of shyt on your driver.” owebama lifted the club and began to wipe the face. The caddy said, “No. The other end.”

  17. Do they grow algae in Oklahoma? If Barry finds a used condom on the ground in Oklahoma he will know that Sandra Fluke has already been there before him.

  18. Carlsbad,NM???? Seriously, there is nothing but rattlesnakes & roadrunners (and a few ‘Jackalopes’) out there. Someone should warn the poor beasts!

  19. Cushing Oklahoma?

    He will not get a warm reception. Im willing to bet that only about 10% would vote for this fool in Cushing. He will be Boo’d.

    He shouldnt spend much time there if he values his life… Oklahoma is not Obama friendly.

  20. See, just another example of stupid republicans and the Tea Party who get their news from Fox getting everything wrong. Obama is really a big oil guy! Loves the stuff, can’t get enough!
    Sad thing is there will be plenty of people who will actually believe this swill.

  21. President Obama has the intellect and the integrity to exam any issue objectivley. The problem he faces, and for that matter all of us face, is how do you tranistion from one technology to the next. The fossil fuels are limited. That is, they may last another twenty or thirty years, but what is the next supplier of sustainable energy. We must in 2012 assist the free market into moving into new areas of energy. We don’t do that by being the “lackies” of existing energy suppliers, but instead initiativize them into a new market. Adam Smith would agree, by the way.

  22. How will Obama know that he is in an oil/gas field and not in a parking lot. I bet you could take him into a cornfield and tell him it’s a methane plant and he would nod and say this is what the stimulus was all about. This guy doesn’t know his elbows from his ahole. Biggest loser ever.

  23. Obama was declared a failed president two years ago. Widely viewed as the worst president in the past 100+ years. His legacy will be, first black man elected president, whose presidency is viewed as a complete failure.

  24. We don’t want him here in Oklahoma, we don’t need our soil tainted by him or his policies, he can take that crap to Chicago, with his thug buddy rahm.

  25. The more we see of Ann Romney, the less we will be seeing Michelle Obama. Comparing the two is an enormous contrast. Ann personifies class, elegance, intelligence, morality, eloquence and compassion. Ann Romney will be a beloved First Lady, again a significant contrast to Michelle. Michelle received some terrible press in the UK from last weeks State Dinner for her skanky gown!

  26. Here is a news flash for Barack Hussein Obama : Oklahoma is a RED state and it verry doubtful that many folks there would vote for him….unless dog catcher is an option!

    • He wouldn’t even qualify for dog catcher here in OK, except maybe at one of the government indoctrination institutions (colleges).

  27. Everyone’s talking about the scarcity of oil but little attention is paid to other natural resources we are gradually running out of without which many industries could not work properly. I am really concerned about whether the scientists will be able to find an effective solution to this problem other than the devastation of one of Earth’s most valuable natural resources – the ocean as suggested in the article.
