Well, President Obama is at it again. The nation still has has stimulus monies unspent, but did Congress call the money back? No!
Now the president wants to lend money to South America to develop oil and sell it to the United States. He has already approved $2 billion to help Brazil develop their off-shore fields.
Brazil has never liked the United States and Obama hopes we will become their "best customer." Think that will happen?
Meanwhile he stubbornly refuses to develop any of our own fossil fuels. We buy from the Middle East. As Sen. John McCain put it, they don't like us very much. Fact is they hate us and our way of life. The Middle Eastern countries like Iran, use our money to attack us.
Obama is so gung-ho on "green" energy he is blind to the fact he spends taxpayer monies on alternative energy companies only to see them go belly up. Oh well, he says, it happens. Truth be told, "green" energy is nowhere ready to replace fossil fuels.
Obama is using taxpayer money to back research and development of "green" companies and we get to watch the jobs go overseas anyway. He is merely pandering for votes. He is bringing the U.S. down and fiscally we are already Third World status.
