Now that the Election of 2012 is heating up, Barack Obama and his party have to build some rationale for reelecting him. This process starts with developing a feel for just how much the halfwits who vote Democrat will fall for. Obama knows that in 2008, they fell for vague gibberish about “Hope and Change” without knowing who he is or what he really wanted to do to us. Now four years later even the dumbest among “Rev. Obama’s” flock realizes he has not delivered on his promises and they still don’t know who he is.
Consequently, it’s back to the drawing board. You can almost hear David Axelrod saying, “Send out Wasserman-Schultz and Pelosi to tell the dimwits unemployment is really going down the economy is doing great and the gas prices are up because Republicans won’t let the boss drill anywhere.”
Yesterday, Obama spoke to a group of ill-educated clapping seals at the University of Miami. Admitting that he doesn’t have a “silver bullet solution” for high gas prices he said, “We’re making new investments in the development of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel that’s actually made from a plant-like substance, algae– you’ve got a bunch of algae out here. If we can figure out how to make energy out of that, we’ll be doing alright. Believe it or not, we could replace up to 17 percent of the oil we import for transportation with this fuel that we can grow right here in America.”
“Believe it or not?” think about what he said. “If we can figure out how to make energy from [algae]… we can replace up to 17 percent of oil import[s]…” Doesn’t this mean “we” don’t know how to make energy out of algae? Of course it does, but for purposes of seeing what the dummies will believe Obama might just as well have said we can replace 27% or 37% or 97% of oil imports with algae. They would have clapped anyway; critical thinking isn’t taught at most colleges anymore.
What the quislings in the media won’t report is “we” have already tried making energy out of algae and those efforts were abandoned a year ago.
Shell ended its tests of the viability of algae as a fuel last February amid reports from the Rand Corporation and biofuel experts that algae has little potential of being a valuable part of our fuel supply any time before Obama’s new crop of clapping seals approaches middle age- if at all.
Because it is so preposterous, “algae as genuine fuel” won’t be heard from again. Nevertheless, it is a telling development. Even suggesting it signals that Obama knows blaming Republicans for $5.00 a gallon gas will be a stretch. This one will only work on the ill-educated who, if they bother to vote, are already supporting Obama anyway.
The “let’s put pond scum in our gas tanks” scam won’t work on the rest of us.
