Joe Kennedy III calls for an end to cheap oil
The title of this post is not a misprint; Joe Kennedy III is running for Barney Frank’s vacated House seat and he believes it is time to put an end to the era of cheap oil.
Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama — they’ve all talked about the same thing: the need to wean ourselves off our debilitating dependence on foreign oil,” Kennedy wrote.
“The cycle that allows cheap oil to trump tough choices has to stop,” he continued. “Forty years is enough”
Barack Obama once promised that energy prices would necessarily skyrocket under his plan, and he also once stated that he didn’t have a problem with the high price of gas when Bush was president, he only wish the price rose more slowly so people had a chance to get used to it. It appears to me as if Joe Kennedy III and Barack Obama are on the same page on this issue.
At a time when are Americans are struggling, in part due to the high price of gas, it appears as if Joe Kennedy is out of touch with the people he wants to represent and more interested in pushing his green agenda even if it hurts the people he claims to care so much about. He does not have a problem with the high price of gas because he thinks this will force people to look at green energy alternatives. All we have to do is look at Solyndra, SunPower, SoloPower, Abound Solar, Solar Trust, and BrightSource (a company in which Robert Kennedy Jr. just happens to be the largest shareholder) to see the fallacy of this policy.
These companies combined received billions of dollars of federal money and yet all failed because the technology isn’t there at this time, and here we have Joe Kennedy III who appears ready to push Barack Obama’s failed green energy initiative if he is able to beat Sean Bielat in November.
