“I want to invest that money in clean, affordable, renewable
sources of energy like wind power, and solar power, and biofuels,
so that we’re not here talking about
high gas prices next summer, and the
summer after that, and five summers after that. That’s the change
— April 29, 2008 Obama speech in Winston-Salem, “Obama on Gas Tax Holiday: A Gimmick Instead of a Real Solution”
OK. More money on windmills and solar would mean lower gas prices next summer. Risky, but his political calculation. And of course, an odd idea to bring down gas prices for those of us who don’t drive wind- or solar-powered cars, but don’t stop him, he’s on a roll.
And, as you may have heard, he won and “invested” billions on windmills and solar. Oh yes, and biofuels (fill ‘er up with algae!).
Now, it’s the summer after the summer after the summer after the summer after that.
Are we here talking about high gas prices? Well, yes, one could reasonably conclude that.
Verdict on this gimmi…er, approach to energy policy?

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
