This cartoon was inspired by Obama’s ridiculous posturing in which he’s suddenly presenting himself as the drillingest, oiliest, most pipeline-lovin’ president this old country has ever seen. The quote about enough pipeline to “encircle the Earth” was too tempting for me to pass up.
Meanwhile, Barry just put on his frowny face and ordered his administration to speed up the tiny little bit of the Keystone XL pipeline which will run between Oklahoma and Texas (carrying no oil from Canada, obviously). Unfortunately, the Bamster has no authority to speed up that section of pipeline and, in fact, probably couldn’t prevent it from being built if he wanted to. But he desperately wants to look like he’s doing something and the MSM is happily playing along.
