Obama's Energy Plan -- Algae By Susan Jones February 24, 2012
(CNSNews.com) - "The American people aren't stupid," President Obama said on Thursday -- as he insisted that drilling for more oil on U.S. territory is "not a strategy to solve our energy challenge."
The president's solution? Algae, for one.
There are no quick fixes to the nation's eneergy problem, the president said, dismissing Republican calls for more drilling as a "bumper sticker."
"Were making new investments in the development of gasoline and diesel and jet fuel thats actually made from a plant-like substance -- algae," the president said at a campaign stop in Florida. "Youve got a bunch of algae out here, right? If we can figure out how to make energy out of that, well be doing all right."
Obama said the nation could replace up to 17 percent of the oil it imports for transportation with "this fuel that we can grow right here in the United States. And that means greater energy security. That means lower costs. It means more jobs. It means a stronger economy."
Obama's mention of algae drew snorts from one prominent pundit.

Obama would know all about pond scum.
Algae will work. The Planet essentially makes hydrocarbons from layers of dead algae. But somebody should tell The Dear Leader that it takes hundreds of millions of years, incredible heat & pressure. Maybe with the right catalysts you can short-circuit the process, but my guess is that you won’t get the long chain hydrocarbons that store the most energy.
My guess is that Obama slept through science class — if he ever took one.
Heh, if dear leader thinks people are going to go without those, he’s a bigger idiot than I took him for. When it comes to environmental nonsense and taking care of one’s family, the latter will take precedence.
On the bright side, the EPA will never put algae-eaters on the endangered species list, as they are now a clear and present danger to our energy independence.
A Clear And Present Danger!
Isn’t algae an important piece of the food chain? Aren’t the environmentalsts worried about this approach?
Oh, I forgot, though - liberalism is a mental disease.
Hello Murder, Hello Fatwa, here I am at Camp Intifada..
It is simple. America MUST become a third world country for the world government folks to have any chance at their prize. We are getting closer with each passing second that this administration is in control. Make no mistake, right now they are in control, of the government, the media, the schools, the churches, our food, our health, our very lives. Not our souls, though. Keep praying.
People are actually laughing at him for this. A few more of these and we may see the long-predicted Obama meltdown and crackup.
I have already heard the first breathless enviro-whacko call a talk show and complain that Obama “wants to take all the plankton out of the ocean and burn it in our gas tanks, which will destroy the planet’s food chain!”
This is just TOO good!
So is Obummer’s bumper sticker for re-election going to say “Skim baby Skim” or maybe it will be “Scrape baby Scrape”!!! lol.
Maybe the Republicans need to come out with a campaign slogan that says...”We cannot skim/scrape our way out of this mess”.
I posted this on the thread about Verizon cancelling their Muslim TV channel:
Does this mean no more....
