(RepublicanWire.org) – Joe Biden’s energy policy doesn’t make a lot of sense. The only way it makes any sense is if you’re trying to kill the American energy industry. He’s been attacking the energy industry since the first day that he came into office.
That’s part of the reason that the price of gas under Biden hit record numbers. Then to pretend he’s addressing that, he’s been artificially trying to keep the price low by draining our Strategic Petroleum Reserve. That puts our national security at risk if there is a true emergency and not just Joe trying to help the Democrats during the election. We could have cheap and reliable energy — indeed we did under President Donald Trump — if Biden just had a sensible policy. But instead, the policy is about limiting our drilling while reaching out to oppressive governments like Saudi Arabia and Venezuela to beg them for oil.
Louisiana Republican Senator John Kennedy was asked about this during a recent appearance on FOX News and answered in a way that only John Kennedy can. The man has a real way with words.
“I used to have a beagle named Roger, and Roger was a rascal,” Kennedy noted. “About every two weeks, Roger would run off — he’d always come back — but about half the time he’d come back dragging roadkill that he would hide under my back porch,” he explained. “President Biden’s energy policy looks like something Roger used to keep under my back porch.”
“It is a fact that America has the greatest, the strongest, economy in all of human history,” Kennedy continued. “We can’t run it without fossil fuels — not today not tomorrow. It is also a fact that, through reserves and technology, America can produce every drop of oil and natural gas that we need and have extra left over to sell to our friends,” he reminded.
“That presents a problem to President Biden because he has embraced the woke or berserk wing of the Democrat Party, and woke ideology says we need to get rid of oil and gas in the United States,” Kennedy explained of his radical counterparts in Congress.
“So President Biden has developed a new energy policy and it is this: Instead of producing at a cheaper cost our own oil and gas in America, we’re going to buy oil from foreign countries that hate us — in this case Venezuela — so those foreign countries will have more money to buy weapons to try to kill us. It’s a moronathon,” Kennedy quipped of Biden and his party’s energy policy.
