Quote of the Day

“We know that pumping oil out of the ground does not create many jobs. It does not foster an entrepreneurial spirit, nor does it sharpen critical faculties.” [...]

“Greenhouse gas emissions and global warming are among humanity’s most pressing concerns. Societal expectations on climate change are real, and our industry is expected to take a leadership role.” -Saudi Arabia’s Oil Minister Ali Al-Naimi

The Saudi oil minister, who probably knows more about oil than anyone on the planet, says oil doesn't create jobs and that climate change is very real.

I'm fairly certain the Saudis aren't socialists or diabolical liberals, so what will the Fox News spin be on this one?

    “That dastardly Barack Hussein Obama done went and corrupted our beloved ally, Saudi Arabia. Impeach! Impeach!”

    Easy: the spin will be that he’s a scary moozlim, and that most of the 9/11 hijackers were scary Saudi Arabian moozlims, therefore the Saudi oil minister is a terrorist. WHY DO YOU LOVE TERRORISTS SO MUCH ASHBY?

    Since the Saudis are unwilling to continue — without decrease — oil production, then, in the name of national security, we must conquer secure the Arabian peninsula.

    [Because if it’s Murrikan territory, it won’t be ferr’n oil no more.]

    The Saudis know more about the remaining reserves of oil than anyone else. My guess is that they are trying to signal that prices will rise.

    I was going to say, “Very simple – it will disappear”, but the first comment got there first.

    Their response will be one of the following:

    * Muslins! Terrorists! 911!
    * Obama is black.
    * Socialism!

    They want to stop the pipeline from being built to New Orleans where it will be able ship massive quantities around the world, creating millions of jobs and topple their monopoly of world oil markets. How’s that? Or they’ll probably just ignore it.

    And Fox News hurriedly declares that today was Opposite Day all along.

    The spin will probably be comepletly igonoring the fact that he said it and possibly the fact that he exists at all.
