Overheard at the Office

My current client is an energy company in North Texas. I overheard this from one of the traders (see "energy expert"):

Saying "we cannot drill our way out of this crisis" is like saying "we cannot eat our way out of hunger" or "drink our way out of thirst."

I'm using that one!

I've been using it since I heard it myself.

I'm convinced that Obama has surrounded himself with "yes men" and that his "energy experts" are folks that are telling him what he wants to hear.

And what he wants to hear is that you can Talk, Wish, and Hope your way to Change into a socialist utopia where all is smiles, rainbows, and cheerful sacrifice for the Greater Good for the plebes and limos, caviar, and smug self righteousness for the elite.

I hope that his dreams meet reality in November rather than several years later.
