A few choice quotes from the video of Obama's energy speech today:
"The lead story in one newspaper said the Republicans are licking their chops."
"Some politicians see this as a political opportunity."
Note the disconnect from his Keystone Pipeline decision in this quote: "Developing new energy is critical to our future."
My fear is that he has all the distance, disconnect, denial, dishonesty, and ambition to get Americans to vote for him again. After all, this strategy worked for him in '08.
