Policy Madness
Posted by: Dale Franks on Sunday, May 04, 2008

The editors of the Wall Street Journal get it exactly right.
This tiff over gas and oil taxes only highlights the intellectual policy confusion – or perhaps we should say cynicism – of our politicians. They want lower prices but don't want more production to increase supply. They want oil "independence" but they've declared off limits most of the big sources of domestic oil that could replace foreign imports. They want Americans to use less oil to reduce greenhouse gases but they protest higher oil prices that reduce demand. They want more oil company investment but they want to confiscate the profits from that investment. And these folks want to be President?
We covered this on the podcast today, but I wanted to highlight it.

This is not policy leadership. It's not even policy. It is utter irrationality. It is an abject surrender to fantasy, rather than a reasoned approach to anything that even approaches a policy.

It is the wailing of a spoiled child, who thinks the world can be made to be what he wishes it to be, rather than what it is.

It’s not even policy
But it IS the result of pandering to the Democrat core groups.

So exactly how high was gasoline to be under the Gore "Carbon-Tax" regime of 1992 ?

Every proposal of the Democrats produces no new oil, but rather always seems to create new taxes. Am I sensing a connection here ?

Except the spolied children are by and large us. You can’t expect professional panderers to not pander to the polls for a living. Most of those positions mentioned are by and large supported by too many of the population.

Our problem is that for decades, we’ve elected a bunch of mossbacked poll-followers lacking the graprfruits to do anything important if it’s hard or unpopular.
