No silver bullet

Mr. Obama has been using his tax-funded campaign trips to explain that there’s no “silver bullet” for bringing down the high price of gasoline.

Mr. Obama is dead wrong about that, and conservatives and libertarians should shout him down about it.  Two simple things are needed to bring the price of fuel way down.  1)  Increase supply.  2) Ensure the supply will be reliable.  Mr. Obama, despite his deep inexperience with real jobs in the real world, certainly knows that an increase in reliable supply would bring down prices.  I can only speculate that he’s denying the obvious truth to shore up support among the radical environmental Luddites on the far left of his political base.

America has more fossil fuel than all OPEC countries combined.  Not only does this country have vast, untapped reserves of crude oil, but America has truly gigantic quantities of shale oil, coal, and natural gas.  Whenever conservatives and libertarians point out this fact, liberals reply (stupidly) that “we cannot drill ourselves out of this.”  Well, actually, we can do that very thing.  The reason it’s not being done is that liberals routinely obstruct every attempt to reach fossil fuels in any place that hasn’t already being developed.  That not only includes the famous Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in Alaska, but coastal drilling across vast stretches of the American shore line and America’s really big ace up our fuel sleeve, shale oil.

The only thing standing between you and reliable, home-brewed American gasoline is… Democrats.

Remember that next time you hear the phony claim that there’s nothing the government can do about this.  In fact, the Democrat “party of government” is the sole reason gasoline costs so much.  And they are doing everything in their power to make this situation worse.  Gasoline will remain overpriced until the party of government gets out of the way and allows American producers to do their thing right here at home.
