News Roundup: Democrat Draconian Regulation, Obama Knows Best And the Costs Of Green Energy

So what went wrong? According to Barack Obama, the problem is he overestimated you dumb rubes’ ability to appreciate what he’s been doing for you. “That I do think is a mistake of mine,” the president told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. “I think the assumption was if I just focus on policy, if I just focus on this provision or that law or if we’re making a good rational decision here, then people will get it.”

Democrat Draconian Regulations:

Democrats continuously hyperventilate about ‘dangerous foreign oil’ (even though we buy the majority of our oil from Mexico and Canada through pipelines, but facts never stop liberal Democrats) however they will do everything and anything to block the development of our own resources.

Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”, has been used since the 1950s to stimulate oil and gas wells. The process involves pumping a sand-laden slurry into a well and subjecting it to enough pressure that the rocks in the productive formation fracture, or break. The purpose of the sand is to prop open the fracture, so it stays in place. The carrying fluid can then flow back out of the well, along with oil and gas if it’s been a successful frac.
