Well, it turns out that I failed to read the fine print yesterday before I published an article praising Obama’s new energy policy. I read the President’s speech and agreed with many of the proposals he recommended, but I also warned that the devil was in the details.
Upon reviewing the administration’s more detailed, Blueprint for a Secure Energy Future, it turns out there was more than just one devil. It also leads me to believe that some in the administration probably thought no serious conservatives would bother to read the President’s plan.
In this context, the President’s speech appears to be more about improving his reelection prospects than making an actual bipartisan effort to support sensible energy independence measures.
My post today on Big Peace provides the specifics of why the President’s policy will likely not do what he claims it will do.
