Obama: “I will turn Algae into Energy”

Apparently, Obama is more “Christian” than we give him credit for. Our Leader thinks that he will soon turn Algae into energy gratis his friends no doubt who will soon get a double load of our money. So the next villain de jour are the nasty energy companies that soon must be controlled. Profits bah humbug, not in Obama’s universe.


Charles Krauthammer responds to President Obama’s suggestion that the U.S. turn to algae for energy production.

Partial Transcript:

“I was impressed by the president’s analysis of this situation where we have no control over the global price of oil,” Charles Krauthammer said. “We’re dependent on oil from unfriendlies. And he says, as we heard, drilling for oil to relieve our dependency is not a solution, it’s not a plan. He said we have to go to clean energy. He talks about something really revolutionary today. Algae. A $14 million grant for the development of algae. It’s not oil. His solution is algae. And because we know that the Secretary of Energy is physicist that won the Nobel Prize, the president knowing this stuff said that one of the reasons we should do this is because we can grow algae here in the United States.”

“Now, it happens that algae will grow on anywhere on earth. I looked it up while I was away for those three days. You thought I was sunning myself. I did research. It grows in oceans, in lakes and ponds, in your swimming pool when the pool man is on vacation. In snow, in ice, on soil, on turtles, on sloths, the bark of trees and rocks. Why are we drilling for oil? We are the Saudi Arabia of rocks. We have a mountain range called the Rockies and we are allowing ourselves to be dominated by these oil producers. I think he’s on to something here that is truly revolutionary. Why would you build a pipeline, the Keystone pipeline with real oil from Canada to put in real refineries and put in real existing cars when you can do algae? I think he is on to something. And I think this shows the vision, the hope and change he promised in 2008.”

“Tongue out of cheek,” host Bret Baier joked.

“I’m sorry that I brought the level of discussion so low,” Krauthammer joked back.

    What Conservatives on Fire said. Proof at Proof Positive had a great line (paraphrasing) – first they’ll have to overcome the objections of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Algae). He has already given $25M to a Florida Algae company.


  2. Always On Watch Says:

    Obama knows he is lying. Did you see his hand go to his face? A tell!


  3. Matt Says:

    So, now our energy policy relies on pond scum?


    • bunkerville Says:

      The world must think he is totally out of his mind as well as the U.S. We are sitting on a ton of energy, yet dependent to despots, and now we are moving to algae.


  4. Steve Dennis Says:

    Can you imagine the field day the MSM would have with Bush if he had said this?!


  5. Z Says:

    All he has to do is continue to walk on water and scoop up all the algae, I guess? 🙂


  6. Obama–Algae Is, Like, The Next Great Energy Source « Blog de KingShamus Says:

    […] Or maybe Bunkerville is right and this is Barry’s version of a faith-based initiative. […]


  7. silverfiddle Says:

    Well, Obama did turn BS into a historically-disastrous presidency…


  8. KingShamus Says:

    Yes, let’s talk about Stephen Chu. Energy Secretary Stephen Chu is such a genius he didn’t know that Solyndra was about to shit the mattress when everybody else in the Obama Administration had that figured out months in advance.

    Yup. Uh-huh. That’s the story they’re going with.

    As for algae, it would be cool to call Obama the pond-scum president with impugnity.


  9. Conservatives on Fire Says:

    Fuel from algae… I have no problem with that. If it is such a great idea, private industry will be all over it. No tax payer money should be needed to make it happen. In the mean time, drill baby drill is what I say.


    • bunkerville Says:

      True. But he question always is, how much fossil fuel is required to make t the conversion… similar to the Ethanol issue. How mnay Cronies?


  10. Alan Sexton Says:

    And, God willing, we will turn Obama into “former President” come November.
