Energy policy... yep, as you surely know, the wind blows. Not much stopping it. So, why not harness it? Sun shines, capture the energy. Electric cars - no dependence on oil for that to run. Hmmm... what was your point again?
Coal: yes, crazy as it seems, the President did ask that we seek CLEANER methods of extracting coal, than, you know, strip mining and poisoning the environment, etc. What a bastard, huh? How dare he actually ask that we try not to destroy the country?
Oil: As I recall, Obama has allowed an increase in drilling off shore and in other formerly protected zones. The Gulf region really enjoyed that spill... no sense in limiting drilling.
Pipeline: Here's a crazy idea; let's have a pipeline stretch across our country, incur the threat of damage from spills, the ugliness of it stretching across a very populated area, the disruption to people and animals, and in the end not necessarily get any benefit. Yep, you fool and liar, the President vetoed the thing because the oil was slated for sale to China, not the U.S.
So, yep... you are right Mitt. Can't put a windmill on a car. No getting that one by you.
