Turns Out Obama's "All Of The Above" Plan For Energy Comes Down To The "One of the Above" He So Favors: Higher Taxes on Energy Companies

Guy has two modes. Higher Taxes Mode, and Higher Spending Mode.

President Barrack Obama used the Rose Garden today to make a poll-tested demand for higher tax payments from oil companies, to repeat controversial claims about U.S. oil reserves and to urge more spending on green-tech companies and on biofuels, such as algae.

Obama campaign-style appearance was intended to highlight a move by Senate Democrats to exempt oil companies from routine investment tax credits.

...

“The biggest oil companies are raking in record profits… [they’re] also getting billions, billions, a year in taxpayer subsidies… It’s like hitting the American people twice,” he declared from a podium.

...

“We should be using that money to double-down on investments in clean energy technologies that have never been more promising. Investments in wind power and solar power and biofuels; in fuel-efficient cars and trucks and homes and buildings.”

We've gotta get him out. I can't take it.

Strictly as a matter of mental health for myself, I need him out.
