Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Irony of the day, “Obama and slogans” edition

The irony of his own words must be lost on him:

President Obama took a dig at the “drill, baby, drill” slogan employed by Republicans and popularized by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin during a speech Wednesday on energy.

The president made an offhand reference to the slogan as an example of the empty rhetoric politicians have used in the past when it comes to energy policy.

“But here’s the thing — we’ve been down this road before. Remember, it was just three years ago that gas prices topped $4 a gallon. Working folks haven’t forgotten that,” Obama said in a speech at Georgetown University, according to prepared remarks. “It hit a lot of people pretty hard. But it was also the height of political season, so you had a lot of slogans and gimmicks and outraged politicians waving three-point-plans for two-dollar gas — when none of it would really do anything to solve the problem.”

Then the president made a departure from his prepared remarks: “You remember, ‘drill baby drill.’

So the same sloganeer that gave us “empty rhetoric” as “Change You Can Believe In”, “Hope and Change”, and “We are the one’s we have been waiting for” (among countless other slogans) is now decrying empty slogans?  At the same time he drops another tired slogan that “drilling won’t do anything to solve the problem of high gas prices”?

Doesn’t he realize that nothing good happens to him when he goes off of his tele-binky?

  1. As gas is quickly approaching $4 a gallon, Captain Pander’s answer is to REDUCE foreign oil imports by 1/3. Simply brilliant!

    Can we PLEASE run this guy out of town while we still have a shred of our country left to save???

  2. empty head results in empty slogans…that’s my slogan for this nonsense. He has to go, no more of his ilk in that office, which he illegally occupies. I don’t care how he goes, just be gone. I’ll buy the feathers. Please.

  3. Tele-binky! Now, that there is funny, I don’t care who you are!

    Sometimes he doesn’t even read what is on his binky, he actually insulted the students of GT during his speech but true to form, the MSM ignored it.
