The last number is 250. That’s a low-ball estimate of the number of years’ worth of oil, gas and coal we have here in the United States. And that’s to say nothing about nuclear, new technologies and renewable energy sources. Romney was right when he said during the second debate that Obama isn’t an oil or coal guy. The president may talk a good game about energy independence, but Americans need to know that — with the right leadership — we can actually achieve it. Instead of stonewalling the Keystone Pipeline and championing Solyndra and the Chevy Volt, our next president should work toward making domestic energy cheaper and America energy independent.
We all need to do our part to highlight these five numbers when talking to our friends, family, neighbors and colleagues over the next two weeks. By doing so, we will paint a clear picture of this administration’s failures.
