If there was any doubt left in your mind that the MSM will parrot and champion of almost anything their chosen president says, his appearance at a “presidential town hall” (that is code for a staged campaign event) on Wednesday should remove that doubt. In fact, this gem was put up by CBS News – CBS News Town Hall Meeting on the economy.
On Tuesday I sent out a message, “More Oil Bull From Obama”, in which his claim that under his watch oil production was the greatest ever was thoroughly refuted with the U.S. Dept. of Energy’s own figures. Now his staffers may or may not read the TYSK Newsletter but, they certainly read plenty of other “opposition” articles and know full well that the real oil production figures are all over the Internet. So for him to continue repeating this narrative it is clear he knows darn well that no one in the lap-dog media will challenge him. Here is a portion of the transcript from his town hall Q&A session:
HARRY SMITH: And speaking of energy pro -- policy, we want to get to our first questioner. Peter Baca is here. Peter -- let's -- fire away. [Whoops! Harry almost gave away the fact that he had the script in front of him and knew BO was going to again repeat the BS about oil production.]
PETER BACA: Good day, Mr. President. The American people have seen gas prices double and in some areas triple within the last year or so. This impacts every single American today, including the likes of retailers, grocers, and such. What changes can the American people expect to see and what actions, if any, are you willing to take to relieve this growing inflation? In other words, what measures can we anticipate?
OBAMA: Well, first of all, I think it's important to -- to know that --
although -- I don't -- pump gas myself these days, (LAUGH) the Secret Service
doesn't let me -- (LAUGH) we pay attention every single day to what's happening
with oil prices. Because you're absolutely right, this is something that
affects everybody. You know, if you're some -- somebody who works -- has to
drive 50 miles a day -- to get to your job. And you're not makin' that much to
begin with. And you may not be able to trade in your old car for a new hybrid.
this is something that we've really gotta -- get a handle on. Now -- some of
this was inevitable, because the economy started growing again. When the
economy -- was in deep recession, everybody was using less, because folks
weren't producing as much, companies were not as active -- and so, worldwide
demand for oil went down. And when the economy started growing again, worldwide
-- demand for oil went back up.
also true is the disruptions in the Middle East. Particularly in Libya, ended
up having some impact. Because people started worrying, "Well, even if
there's still some supply now, what's gonna happen in the future." Those
are -- things that we could not completely control. What we can
control is number one -- are we producing as much as we can here in the United
States? And in fact, we're producing more oil now than any time since 2003. [Notice how he has added the
little qualifier, “since 2003”, knowing full well that it will be completely
overlooked and the message folks are supposed to take away is, “more oil now
than any time”.]
