Conservative group recommends Obama for Brazil’s president

Despite the fact that President Obama finally released his long-form birth certificate and undeniably is eligible to be president, there are some who believe Obama would be better suited to be the leader of Brazil.

Friday, the conservative non-profit group “Let Freedom Ring” launched a campaign website to draft Obama to run for president of Brazil.

“Let Freedom Ring” argues that Obama’s domestic oil policies make him an unsuitable leader for America but a great one for Brazil.

“While gas prices are skyrocketing past $4 a gallon towards $5 a gallon faster than air traffic controllers falling asleep, President Barack Obama is blocking oil production in the United States,” the group’s website explains.

“We have 163 billion barrels of untapped oil reserves, enough oil to replace imports from the Persian Gulf for more than 50 years. Yet, Barack is more interested in helping Brazil increase its oil production than ours, recently telling the country that we’ll help them develop their resources and hope to be ‘your best customer,’” they add.

Republicans have been critical of the President for his support of Brazilian oil, while neglecting domestic sources.

“It’s ridiculous to ignore our own resources and continue going hat-in-hand to countries like Saudi Arabia and Brazil to beg them to produce more oil,” Louisiana Republican Senator David Vitter said in a March statement, reported by The Hill. “We need to get serious about developing our resources here at home and working toward lower gas prices and long-term energy independence.”

Obama for Brazil supporters may visit the website to sign an endorsement letter.

“Considering Barack’s more interested in winning Brazil’s future than our own, he should run for President of Brazil!” Colin Hanna, President of Let Freedom Ring, said.

The website also features a satirical endorsement video from Fox News contributor Steven Crowder.
