VIRAL NOTES: And now, the transcript of Obama's latest speech to soft-soap America into believing he's actually competent, and capable of anything good.

"Hi, everybody. I’m speaking to you this week from a factory in Petersburg, Virginia, where they’re bringing on more than 100 new workers to build parts for the next generation of jet engines.

It’s a story that’s happening more frequently across the country. Our businesses just added 233,000 jobs last month — for a total of nearly four million new jobs over the last two years. More companies are choosing to bring jobs back and invest in America. Manufacturing is adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s, and we’re building more things to sell to the rest of the world stamped with three proud words: Made in America.

And it’s not just that we’re building stuff. We’re building better stuff. The engine parts manufactured here in Petersburg will go into next-generation planes that are lighter, faster, and more fuel-efficient.

That last part is important. Because whether you’re paying for a plane ticket, or filling up your gas tank, technology that helps us get more miles to the gallon is one of the easiest ways to save money and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

The recent spike in gas prices has been another painful reminder of why we have to invest in this technology. As usual, politicians have been rolling out their three-point plans for two-dollar gas: drill, drill, and drill some more. Well, my response is, we have been drilling. Under my Administration, oil production in America is at an eight-year high. We’ve quadrupled the number of operating oil rigs, and opened up millions of acres for drilling.

But you and I both know that with only 2% of the world’s oil reserves, we can’t just drill our way to lower gas prices — not when consume 20 percent of the world’s oil. We need an all-of-the-above strategy that relies less on foreign oil and more on American-made energy — solar, wind, natural gas, biofuels, and more.

That’s the strategy we’re pursuing. It’s why I went to a plant in North Carolina earlier this week, where they’re making trucks that run on natural gas, and hybrid trucks that go further on a single tank.

And it’s why I’ve been focused on fuel efficient cars since the day I took office. Over the last few years, the annual number of miles driven by Americans has stayed roughly the same, but the total amount of gas we use has been going down. In other words, we’re getting more bang for our buck.

If we accelerate that trend, we can help drivers save a significant amount of money. That’s why, after 30 years of inaction, we finally put in place new standards that will make sure our cars average nearly 55 miles per gallon by the middle of the next decade — nearly double what they get today. This wasn’t easy: we had to bring together auto companies, and unions, and folks who don’t ordinarily see eye to eye. But it was worth it.

Because these cars aren’t some pie in the sky solution that’s years away. They’re being built right now — by American workers, in factories right here in the U.S.A. Every year, our cars and trucks will be able to go further and use less fuel, and pretty soon, you’ll be able to fill up every two weeks instead of every week — something that, over time, will save the typical family more than $8,000 at the pump. We’ll reduce our oil consumption by more than 12 billion barrels. That’s a future worth investing in.

So we have a choice. Right now, some folks in Washington would rather spend another $4 billion on subsidies to oil companies each year. Well you know what? We’ve been handing out these kinds of taxpayer giveaways for nearly a century. And outside of Congress, does anyone really think that’s still a good idea? I want this Congress to stop the giveaways to an oil industry that’s never been more profitable, and invest in a clean energy industry that’s never been more promising. We should be investing in the technology that’s building the cars and trucks and jets that will prevent us from dealing with these high gas prices year after year after year.

Ending this cycle of rising gas prices won’t be easy, and it won’t happen overnight. But that’s why you sent us to Washington — to solve tough problems like this one. So I’m going to keep doing everything I can to help you save money on gas, both right now and in the future. I hope politicians from both sides of the aisle join me. Let’s put aside the bumper-sticker slogans, remember why we’re here, and get things done for the American people.

Thank you, God bless you, and have a great weekend."

VIRAL NOTES: Now let's break down the fallacy of his speech.

"Hi, everybody. I’m speaking to you this week from a factory in Petersburg, Virginia, where they’re bringing on more than 100 new workers to build parts for the next generation of jet engines.

It’s a story that’s happening more frequently across the country. Our businesses just added 233,000 jobs last month — for a total of nearly four million new jobs over the last two years. More companies are choosing to bring jobs back and invest in America. Manufacturing is adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s, and we’re building more things to sell to the rest of the world stamped with three proud words: Made in America."


Funny. He's touting supposed growth in the business of manufacturing jet engines, and yet, just last year, he was touting how he'd like to destroy that industry, and anybody that dared have anything to do with it, including by buying their products.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-06-29/jet-tax-break-cited-six-times-by-obama-would-cut-debt-by-about-3-billion.html

Up until now, he's been equating people that fly around on jets with the American bourgeoisie, something communists don't ordinarily like, nor treat very kindly. Again, though, in keeping with communist political and social philosophy, what's alright, fine & good for me is not for thee:

http://weaselzippers.us/2012/03/09/usaf-pulls-five-c-130s-four-c-17s-from-active-duty-service-to-help-obama-campaign-for-reelection/

"233,000 jobs" and "4 million in two years". This is absolutely nothing compared to what it should've been, and possibly what it would've been, had we not been afflicted with a combination of people stupid enough to vote for Obama and widespread voter fraud. Even the leftist Slate Magazine doesn't fall for Obama's lies:

"Job creation has picked up. Indicators for manufacturing and services have improved moderately. Even the housing industry has shown some signs of life. And consumption growth has been relatively resilient. Here’s the bad news: U.S. economic growth will remain weak and below trend throughout 2012. Why is all the recent economic good news not to be believed?

First, U.S. consumers remain income-challenged, wealth-challenged, and debt-constrained. Disposable income has been growing modestly—despite real-wage stagnation—mostly as a result of tax cuts and transfer payments. This is not sustainable: Eventually, transfer payments will have to be reduced and taxes raised to reduce the fiscal deficit. Recent consumption data are already weakening relative to a couple of months ago, marked by holiday retail sales that were merely passable.

At the same time, U.S. job growth is still too mediocre to make a dent in the overall unemployment rate and on labor income. The United States needs to create at least 150,000 jobs a month on a consistent basis just to stabilize the unemployment rate. More than 40 percent of the unemployed are now long-term unemployed, which reduces their chances of ever regaining a decent job. Indeed, firms are still trying to find ways to slash labor costs."

http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/project_syndicate/2012/01/u_s_economic_growth_will_be_anemic_in_2012.html

While I am no fan of British media, even these leftists been doing a better job of critical analysis of Obama's inept handling of the economy, than the American branch of the LEC [Liberal Entertainment Complex].

"Two words hardly mentioned in Barack Obama’s 65-minute State of the Union address to Congress: freedom and liberty. President Obama’s fourth and possibly last State of the Union speech was long on big government proposals, but short on the principles that have made America the world’s greatest power. His lecturing tone exuded arrogance, and he failed to present a coherent vision for getting the United States back on its feet after three years of economic decline. It was heavy on class-war rhetoric, punitive taxation, and frequent references to the Left-wing mantra of “fairness”, hardly likely to instil confidence in a battered business community that is the lifeblood of the American economy.

Above all, he remains in denial over the levels of federal debt that threaten the country's long-term prosperity. This was not a speech that was serious about the biggest budget deficits since World War Two. There was no sense at all that America is a superpower on a precipice, sinking in a sea of debt that threatens to undermine America’s power to project global leadership for generations to come. In fact, his interventionist proposals will only make matters worse."

(Humorously enough, in that video, Obama says: "no bailouts". http://www.redstate.com/congresswomancathymcmorrisrodgers/2012/02/29/why-is-obama-bailing-out-greece-and-why-is-the-msm-covering-up-for-him/)

Businesses are not seeing America as the place to be, anymore, and there is far too much to substantiate my claim that Obama is not telling the truth, in regard to this:

http://www.focus.com/fyi/10-big-businesses-that-have-moved-abroad/

http://video.foxbusiness.com/v/1485896864001/us-will-soon-have-highest-corporate-tax-rate/

"And it’s not just that we’re building stuff. We’re building better stuff. The engine parts manufactured here in Petersburg will go into next-generation planes that are lighter, faster, and more fuel-efficient.

That last part is important. Because whether you’re paying for a plane ticket, or filling up your gas tank, technology that helps us get more miles to the gallon is one of the easiest ways to save money and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

The recent spike in gas prices has been another painful reminder of why we have to invest in this technology.

Under my Administration, oil production in America is at an eight-year high. We’ve quadrupled the number of operating oil rigs, and opened up millions of acres for drilling."


This is laughable, considering Obama takes the lion's share of the blame for America's current oil crisis, equal to, or greater, than the one America went through with the formation of OPEC, and the embargo.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1973_oil_crisis

http://www.coasthomebuyers.com/blog/rising-gas-prices-hit-six-dollars-per-gallon-in-florida

Obama lies about many things in these paragraphs, alone. For one, he claims that "oil production in America is at an 8 year high", and that we've "quadrupled the number of operating oil rigs, and opened up millions of acres for drilling". In reality, Obama's policies and cronies are responsible for oil and gas production being DOWN 40% in America.

http://blog.heritage.org/2012/01/18/under-obama-oil-and-gas-production-on-federal-lands-is-down-40/

We've had the lowest number of onshore leases sold, since 1984 (http://www.blm.gov/pgdata/etc/medialib/blm/wo/MINERALS__REALTY__AND_RESOURCE_PROTECTION_/energy/oil___gas_statistics/fy_2011.Par.19679.File.dat/chart_2011_03.pdf), and in all of 2011, there was only ONE offshore lease sale, in all of America (http://naturalresources.house.gov/News/DocumentSingle.aspx?DocumentID=272562). Further exposing Obama's lies are the fact that he has not fostered drilling, but actually illegally and un-Constitutionally blocked it...

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2010/05/president-obama-to-cancel-offshore-drilling-projects/

...even being found in contempt of court for his actions by a federal judge.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-02-03/u-s-administration-in-contempt-over-gulf-drill-ban-judge-rules.html

He claims he's going to reduce America's dependence on foreign oil, in one breath, and then tells foreigners that America will be their "best customer", in the other:

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-03-20/obama-tells-rousseff-he-wants-u-s-to-be-among-brazil-s-best-customers-.html



He's even allowing military enemies to drill in American territorial waters, and exploit our resources for their own gain, all the while, simultaneously blocking Americans and American companies from doing the same:

"Because of current U.S. policy, U.S. companies are prohibited from developing oil fields that lie in Cuban waters and come within 50 miles of Florida. However, Cuba is exploring and developing these oil fields, estimated by the U.S. Geological Survey to possess more oil than the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge, and Cuba is partnering with China and other countries, such as Spain, France, and Canada.

The Castro Regime will begin drilling off the coast of Florida this year and will go deeper than the Deepwater Horizon rig that exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in April.

But, US companies are not so fortunate.
In December the Obama Administration issued a massive new ban on offshore oil drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico or off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts."

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2011/09/cuba-will-begin-drilling-off-florida-coast-by-december-where-democrats-block-us-companies-from-operating/

He claims he is allowing drilling, but clear evidence shows that, as usual, he's not telling the truth. He's also claimed that we 'can't drill out way out' of the current crisis:

http://thehill.com/blogs/e2-wire/e2-wire/159705-obama-more-drilling-is-not-the-solution

...and yet, he's supposedly allowing people to drill everywhere in the damned country to find resources. If he was so concerned about drilling for oil and utilizing American resources to end this crisis, he wouldn't have blocked the Keystone XL pipeline. Claiming that using our own resources won't help matters much is a typical example of the leftist logic (AKA: stupidity) that is a hallmark of his regime. States that are allowed to exercise their right to drill are experiencing job booms, and his prevention of the XL project has insure that America will not receive another; not for a long time.

"The Labor Department’s latest data makes this fact clear. While the total U.S. workforce has shrunk by over 4 percent since the recession hit in 2007, employment in the oil and gas sector has grown nearly 22 percent.

The industry employs about 2.1 million people directly and about another 7 million indirectly by purchasing their goods and services. And that figure is growing. It is counterintuitive, therefore, that the White House continually speaks about the need for job creation but then pushes to stifle one of the few industries continuing to create them.

Those stifling actions include the glacial pace of renewing lease permit in the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska, the decision to keep large portions of our onshore and offshore resources off-limits, and the recent agency actions calling into question the hydraulic fracturing responsible for recent economic booms in states like North Dakota.

The administration’s anti-jobs actions are now even calling in question a nearly 500 year-old truism: English author Samuel Johnson’s observation “when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.” With economy still suffering, voter approval stuck in the 40s, and Election Day only eight months away, the President opted today to reject another jobs opportunity: the Keystone XL pipeline."

http://mattbronkar.com/4/post/2012/1/labor-dept-reports-us-jobs-boom-in-oil-and-gas-as-obama-rejects-keystone-xl-pipeline.html

Obama has blamed the rising gas prices on everything, but himself.

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2011/08/05/obama_blames_arab_springs_and_tsunami_in_japan_for_lack_of_jobs_and_economic_growth.html







Obama, for his part, has claimed no responsibility for rising gas prices (which he just said he encouraged over a gradual period of time), and didn't feel the need to do anything about it.

President Obama does not "accept responsibility" for high gas prices, his spokesman indicated today, arguing that Obama has done everything he could to bring down the price of oil and blaming the high gas prices on oil price increases caused by global factors.
http://campaign2012.washingtonexaminer.com/blogs/beltway-confidential/obama-doesnt-accept-responsibility-gas-prices/388946

Will President Obama do something about high gas prices? No, argued Deputy White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest today.

Earnest insisted that there was no "short term solution" for cheaper gas, other than the president's payroll tax cut and refused to discuss releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserves.

"If there was a magic wand you could wave, one of the presidents would have waved it," said Earnest arguing that high gas prices were not a new problem.

"Anyone who says that they can wave a wand or plant the magic beans to lead to a reduction in oil prices is just not telling the truth," he added.

Earnest insisted that the President's payroll tax cut would give relief putting an average of $40 back into the pockets of working Americans.

http://campaign2012.washingtonexaminer.com/blogs/beltway-confidential/white-house-no-magic-beans-cheaper-gas/393756

In keeping with his desire to see America assailed by high gas prices, a regime spokesman (the head of the Department of Energy) stated that the White House isn't at all interested in lowering the price of fuel.

Obama has distinguished himself as a pathological liar, especially when talking about energy and energy policies. The US is not a mineralogical dead end, but the complete opposite: a still-unexplored frontier.

As for consumption, that's because we are the most productive nation in the world. If we weren't, where would all those resources go? Is he stupid enough to imply that that all goes into cars? Maybe he should learn simple chemistry (maybe he did, but failed it; we don't know, considering he still hides his transcripts, and has spend more money doing so, than many people make in a year).

Yeah, gasoline is on the list, too. As his un-Constitutional policies [and the privations of the Middle Easterners] drive the price of petroleum up, the prices of everything associated with that substance goes up, with it. This is a concept that leftists in the Obama regime just seem mentally incapable of comprehending (and that includes the cost of transporting those petroleum based products, in vehicles that use petroleum based fuel). While I am in favor of Obama's half-assed support for natural gas exploitation, its not nearly enough, and it is certainly not going to replace petroleum powered vehicles/petroleum manufactured products, anytime soon (if ever). Natural gas has no real infrastructure in this country, if you're going to try powering vehicles with it, and I'm sure Obama's solution would be to spend billions to trillions in stimulus funds to try to force that into existence.

http://www.cngstations.com/disadvantages-of-cng/

Nevermind the fact that that's un-Constitutional, too. Obama dosn't care about the Constitution.

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/212517-democratic-governors-discuss-bypassing-congress-with-obama



"And it’s why I’ve been focused on fuel efficient cars since the day I took office. Over the last few years, the annual number of miles driven by Americans has stayed roughly the same, but the total amount of gas we use has been going down. In other words, we’re getting more bang for our buck.

If we accelerate that trend, we can help drivers save a significant amount of money. That’s why, after 30 years of inaction, we finally put in place new standards that will make sure our cars average nearly 55 miles per gallon by the middle of the next decade — nearly double what they get today. This wasn’t easy: we had to bring together auto companies, and unions, and folks who don’t ordinarily see eye to eye. But it was worth it."


Economy, gas prices make Americans drive less
By Larry Copeland and Paul Overberg, USA TODAY Updated 12/8/2011 11:21 AM

Americans have been driving fewer miles every month since March, a decline fueled by factors ranging from the weak economy to high gas prices to aging boomers and teens driving less.

It's the first time the nation has seen six consecutive monthly decreases since October of 2008.

A USA TODAY analysis of data from the Federal Highway Administration shows the miles driven during the year that ended in September were down 1% from a similar measure from February.
http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/story/2011-12-07/americans-driving-less/51716466/1

Now directly compare Obama's statement:

"Over the last few years, the annual number of miles driven by Americans has stayed roughly the same, but the total amount of gas we use has been going down. In other words, we’re getting more bang for our buck."

to:

"It's the first time the nation has seen six consecutive monthly decreases since October of 2008."

How much more do I have to show you, to prove that Obama is a serial liar? And I won't even bother going into his BS about 'bringing people together that don't normally see eye-to-eye'.

"Because these cars aren’t some pie in the sky solution that’s years away. They’re being built right now — by American workers, in factories right here in the U.S.A. Every year, our cars and trucks will be able to go further and use less fuel, and pretty soon, you’ll be able to fill up every two weeks instead of every week — something that, over time, will save the typical family more than $8,000 at the pump. We’ll reduce our oil consumption by more than 12 billion barrels. That’s a future worth investing in."

I've pretty much already addressed this, in referring to Obama's lack of coherent, realistic policy, resulting in dangerous, and even proven deadly, CAFE standards, creating smaller, less safe vehicles, and resulting in mass death. Choking off America's energy supply won't just cause corporations to suddenly come up with alternatives to petroleum. That's sounds as stupid and asinine as the previous statement about "...magic beans..."

"So we have a choice. Right now, some folks in Washington would rather spend another $4 billion on subsidies to oil companies each year. Well you know what? We’ve been handing out these kinds of taxpayer giveaways for nearly a century. And outside of Congress, does anyone really think that’s still a good idea? I want this Congress to stop the giveaways to an oil industry that’s never been more profitable, and invest in a clean energy industry that’s never been more promising. We should be investing in the technology that’s building the cars and trucks and jets that will prevent us from dealing with these high gas prices year after year after year."

Now, we have another, popular lie told by ObamaCo.: the lie about oil subsidies. In the words of leftist Obama supporter Martin Frost:

"I’m a supporter of the President’s. I’m concerned that he’s going to lose credibility on this oil and gas issue because he’s not telling the truth entirely. What he is saying is that you need to eliminate four billion dollars worth of tax breaks for major oil companies because major oil companies have obscene profits. The problem with this is that one of the big tax breaks that he’s citing -intangible drilling costs- excuse me -percentage depletion- was repealed by Congress, excuse me, in 1975, 36 years ago, as it affects major oil companies. The only ones that get percentage depletion anymore are domestic independents who drill most of the wells in the United States and employ four million people."
http://www.therightscoop.com/levin-big-oil-hasnt-gotten-4-billion-subsidies-for-over-30-years/

Yep. That's right. I have friends that weren't even alive [born] during the time when oil companies actually received subsidies. However, still, after all these decades, Obama and the left continue to push this lie, and people are still stupid enough to believe it. There's nothing wrong with investing in cleaner, newer energy sources, but there's something wrong with cutting off proven, current sources to do it. Furthermore, the US, as a federal government, has no business "investing" in anything. Show me where in the Constitution (you know: that "charter of negative liberties") where it authorizes the federal government to spend the Peoples' money on "investments". This is a job for the Private Sector. Big Business, not Big Government.

"Ending this cycle of rising gas prices won’t be easy, and it won’t happen overnight. But that’s why you sent us to Washington — to solve tough problems like this one. So I’m going to keep doing everything I can to help you save money on gas, both right now and in the future. I hope politicians from both sides of the aisle join me. Let’s put aside the bumper-sticker slogans, remember why we’re here, and get things done for the American people.

Thank you, God bless you, and have a great weekend."


Ending this cycle is both possible and doable, and could even be done in a relatively short amount of time. You already saw the effect of mining for natural resources had on Nebraska. Just imagine that being done, throughout the country, both onshore and off. Just imagine military enemies being driven away from our waters, and having American corporations take advantage of those resources. We shouldn't even be giving offshore drilling priority, considering how much oil we have onshore. Offshore is more difficult, dangerous and costly. Obama doesn't want to recognize that the EPA is un-Constitutional and illegal, and that the federal government (i.e.: HIM, and the Department of the Interior) has no enumerated, Constitutional authority to tell people how to run their business, or where oil corporations can, or cannot, do business. This is a matter of States' rights (something Obama has always opposed, as things like the 9th and 10th Amendments exist to thwart the dictatorial powers of people like Obama and the leftist socialist party of the DNC: http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2008/10/28/barack_obama_s_anti_bill_of_rights). The thought of job booms occurring through the United States, prices dropping, and energy becoming cheap, plentiful and evolving does not fit in with Obama's leftist narrative of a nation that is run by a top-down authoritarian regime, and is fully integrated into the rest of the nations, with an oligarchical aristocrats controlling the world's energy and food supplies, utilizing them as a weapon against the disobedient.

This is who you voted for, and you should be deeply ashamed and embarrassed.

I am Virus-X, and I damned sure approve this message.

If you really want to give yourself a headache, count the number of times he says "I" and "me" in his speech, as if he actually had anything do do with any of these events. I've never seen a more egocentric public figure in my life.

It might be tolerable, if he was actually saying all that to take responsibility for the massive mess he's made.

"I'm responsible for high gas prices."

"I'm primarily responsible for high unemployment in this country, and businesses fleeing to other countries."

"The DNC and I are chiefly to blame for stirring class warfare."

Et-cetera.
