Obama on energy

In his own words:
You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, uh, you know — Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.
Weird how when gas prices go up that Obama acted like it was a bad thing, but when he proposes a policy that will drive energy prices it's a good thing. I guess it's only bad when the private sector benefits rather than the government.

Honestly, you don't have to make stuff up about this guy to attack him, you just need to quote him.
