Updated! Gov. Palin Talks ‘Drill Baby Drill’ with John Stossel on ‘Gas Myths’ on Saturday

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 1, 2012

UPDATE:   It looks like FOX Business may have aired Governor Palin’s interview earlier than they had announced (see below).  The video at this link has a time stamp of 8:36 AM.  (h/tp Palin4America).

Palin: Obama Doesn’t Have an Energy Policy

Memorable Palin Quotes from the interview:

Our President really is clueless when it comes to the need for an energy policy…

God has just dropped this cornucopia full of resources underfoot, and it just takes political will to tap into them…

What it’s all about is fundraising for the environmentalists….

Onshore drilling is much safer than the deep offshore drilling…

America has the highest standards in the world when it comes to environmental protection…

The President has been dishonest with the American public about what he has allowed, if you will,  the drilling that is taking place.  Not only did President Bush tee up the drilling that we see going on now, but President Obama taking credit for private sector and safe land allowance of drilling is … it’s quite disingenuous because the President doesn’t have control over that aspect of the energy industry.  What he does have control over is federal land.  And yet he has locked those up.

We have more oil here than anything that we would ever have to look to to import from these foreign countries if only we had the political will to tap into it…

[ANWR] Or laying a postage stamp on a football field – that is the equivalent of the thumbprint that is needed for that drilling, especially with the new technology and the directional drilling…

Alaska is hundreds of millions of acres. It’s huge.  It’s 2 1/2 times the state of Texas.  We’re asking for 2000 acres, and that’s it.  It’s about the size of LAX – a typical big-city airport…

… flowing it into the existing TransAlaska oil pipeline, the 800-mile pipeline that used to produce about 25 % of the U. S. domestic supply of energy, and now it’s way, way down.  We went from about 2 million barrels a day, now to about 700,000 barrels a day.   It needs to be full…. Environmentally and energywise, it flows oil better the fuller it is.  It makes no sense that we can’t tap our resources up there.

Gas Myths (airs SATURDAY at 3PM & 10PM on FNC)

Posted by John Stossel | May 31, 2012

The summer driving season is here.

People believe myths about oil and gasoline. We’re running out of oil! America should be energy independent! Our oil comes from evil dictators! Electric cars and ethanol are so much better for the environment and America!

This week we challenge those ideas.

Jerry Taylor of the CATO Institute and Power Hungry author Robert Bryce explain the truth about oil and gas.

Bill O’Reilly and I continue our argument about those greedy oil companies “conspiring” to keep gas prices high.

Fox Business reporter Charles Payne will be here to explain how oil speculation works.

Former Governor Sarah Palin also joins us to talk about her famous mantra, “Drill, baby, drill!”

    I watched this originally on Thursday nite on FBN – after the Governor’s appearance on the show, Stossel speaks with his ‘panel’, the guy from the Cato Institute really rips the Gov – he needs to get some emails &/or tweets setting him straight about the Alaska Constitution and the Gov’s role there in serving the Alaska people…………….

    We should have started drilling at least 3 1/2 years ago. But the Obama administration which is totally anti-oil and anti-fossil fuels had stood in the way and erected every possible roadblock to oil and gas drilling! They are a disgrace and have manufactured our high gas prices and our continued dependency on foreign oil.
