Sarah Palin: Obama is a LIAR ON ENERGY

Sarah Palin speaking at Alaska pipeline

By Sarah Palin:

President Obama’s claim that the Keystone pipeline would create “maybe 2,000 jobs” during its construction is such a blatant lie that even his friends at Politifact were forced to rate it false.

The Alaska pipeline is a good example of the boom created by construction of a pipeline – a job boom that continues to this day with thousands of workers on the North Slope. During its construction and pre-construction phase, the Alyeska pipeline project employed some 70,000 workers from 1969 through 1977.

During its peak, that pipeline provided 17% of the U.S. domestic supply of energy – that’s billions of barrels of oil. To deny the multiple benefits involved in building the Keystone pipeline – from job creation to securing a reliable source of energy from an environmentally responsible country like Canada – is just ludicrous. It’s more of what we’ve come to expect from the Obama administration and his lapdog spokesmen.

    While I think all the hype about Keystone XL from both sides is off the chart I personally have no problems with its construction. We should be honest that the product will go on the open market and thus open mkt price subject to market manipulation.

    I also believe we should carefully consider if jobs realized by the Keystone will be green carded or to citizens. I expect not.

      No hype from those who are FOR the pipeline. Obama’s own people say that we’ll see 40-50,000 jobs if it’s build. Good paying durable jobs.

      You have a valid point about green cards, and possibly even illegals, as BOTH parties care more about illegals than American citizens.

      Here’s the sad part though. Getting oil from Canada is better than OPEC countries that not only hate us, but fund terror world wide. BUT, we have more oil and gas in THIS country, than any other country, or coalition of countries, like OPEC.

      In shale oil alone, we have 2 TRILLION barrels out of the known 2.6 TRILLION world wide. That 2 TRILLION, is more oil than all of the oil consumed world wide, since the beginning of the petroleum age!

      We have between 300-500 years worth of oil, and that’s if we never import another single drop!

      We also have 1.67 QUADRILLION [1670 TRILLION] cubic feet of natural gas, in the Arctic alone. Instead of throwing away billions on the worthless ethanol program, we should have been helping auto manufacturers and retails convert the fleet to cheap, clean, and green natural gas. The technology is only 100 years old!

      The radical democrat party is 100% AGAINST American prosperity. The fact that America isn’t 100% energy independent proves it!

      Take a look at some of the facts:
