Normally I’d Say, “Oooo! THAT’LL Leave a Mark”

But you have to be able to feel something for that to be true.

It’s a waste of breath in President Numbnuts’ case.

Brazil Stiffs Obama on Oil Deal, Exposing President’s Incompetence

President Barack Obama has suffered the second embarrassment over oil imports within the space of a week. Brazil, whose offshore deposits of oil were sought by the Obama administration, has signed contracts with China for the product.

According to the Washington Times, Brazilian offshore crude may number about 38 billion barrels. Obama went to Brazil last month to put in a bid for the oil, offering loans and other support to develop the oil in an “environmentally responsible matter,” The Hill reported at the time. Republicans criticized that initiative, pointing out Obama has placed roadblocks in the way of domestic development of oil and gas reserves.

Hellava job he’s doing there…here…pretty much everywhere. And lucky effin us.

$6 a gallon gas…zoomzoom.

    Given President Present’s overall ‘tude, I just have to wonder if this is really a “failure”, or just another step towards screwing up the American energy industry.

    He may well be thumbing his nose at our energy complex and the American people.

    Why would this be a surprise?
    Brazil is a BRIC country, it stands to reason they would sell to them. And that would be either India or China.

    And this was done just after we gave them that flight contract causing Kansas to lose a lot of jobs. We ought to take that contract back.

    I’m wondering the same thing as Jeff.

    After all, if no one can afford to drive, then the country’s leaders can boast about having lowered CO2 emissions or somesuch.

    He shouldn’t have used the same speech he gave to the IOC.

  5. Yojimbo says:

    And remember, we’re the ones that loaned them the money to setup exploration in the first place. Fat chance that money will be repaid so we could be paying them to export oil to China using mostly US rigs.
