    What’s actually funny about that skit is the effete liberals who wrote it would not be able to grasp that from right below the surface they’re projecting their own inherent racism in the form of the soft bigotry of their very low expectations for Obama.

    Had the roles been reversed the skit in essence would have written itself. Romney would have had on a dunce cap and been portrayed as a bumbling idiot. Obama would have been portrayed as a genius orator who smacked Romney around like a redheaded stepchild. Goes without saying. But in the mind’s eye of a liberal the same treatment in reverse simply can’t be applied. And it’s not merely as simple as the obvious point that they want Obama to win. Obama being black, the way a white liberal sees things, means that Obama needs their help; he needs them to excuse his poor performance.

    Maybe it’s just me, but I think bringing the crazy at top-of-thread accomplishes less than you think it does.

    (I note that SNL was tricked into thinking it is “American energy independence.” It is more absurdly “North American energy independence” in Romney’s platform.)

    @john personna:

    Obviously you don’t understand that we own Mexico and Canada.

    Or that we apparently need to embargo oil from the UK or Norway for reasons that escape me.

    Now on the plus side once we have our “North American Energy Independence” going on, we can stop defending the Persian Gulf. We just won’t care about what happens in the Middle East. After all, it’s not like there’s a worldwide market for oil and a price increase in one place would have any impact on our Canadian and Mexican friends and the price they charge for oil.

    No, Romney says that he wants North American Independence because he knows that it´s impossible that the United States could stop importing oil from Canada and Mexico. I think that the idea of Brazilian Energy Independence Bull and I think that it´s something insane in North America.

    Energy independence in oil and gas? It’s basically nonsense. It’s a world market. Price goes up in one place, it goes up everywhere. Are you proposing we forbid Canada or Mexico to ship oil or gas except to us? Are you proposing regulations forbidding US producers to ship overseas?

    Solar, wind and nuclear are different because there is basically no world market. We could certainly sell excess electricity to nearby parts of Canada and Mexico, but it’s not anything like the same as oil. Oil can be shipped in tankers — wind not so much.

    OK, that is an attempt at explanation. For what it’s worth I think the way you say that is “make the US a net energy producer.” That’s a much cleaner way of stating that goal than “North American energy independence.”

    Now, realistically how do you make the US a net energy producer?

    Right now we import:

    2.2 million barrels per day from Canada

    1.2 million barrels per day from Saudi Arabia

    1.1 million barrels per day from Mexico

    Reality knocking Paul…. KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK…. We are dependent on foreign oil. We will continue to be dependent on foreign oil. If we drill for every bit of oil we can get our greedy little hands on…. we will still be dependent on foreign oil. And there is no guarantee that that oil is there. Not to mention… FREEDOM!!! Do you really think Exxon is going to sell oil to the USof A at $80 per barrel when they can get $120 per barrel in Europe?????

    Really?????

    Look, the only sure fire way to decrease our dependence on foreign oil is to increase our fuel efficiency. Yeah, I know, it sucks. We can continue to drive 7 mpg Humvees and enslave ourselves to the Arabs, or increase our MPG standards and give up our FREEDOMs!!!!

That wind and solar are never going to be have a large effect on our energy needs. That we must not be afraid of nuclear energy just because it has the word nuclear in it. That we need to stop playing political games with something like Yucca Mountain, the Keystone pipeline, offshore drilling, etc. That we need to work with energy producers and not against them…that profit motif encourages them to be good players on the world stage and *gasp* even respectful of the environment.

    That we realize standard market conditions of supply and demand will lead us to more efficient energy production eventually and most government regulation has a net negative effect in people’s lives and geo-political events in this matter.

    North American energy independence is a stated goal of those who believe that the North American nations – the USA, Canada and Mexico – must reduce their reliance on oil purchased from outside the continent.

    Also from that page:

    In a 2012 poll of energy experts by Foreign Policy magazine, almost two-thirds of respondents said energy independence was not a sensible goal.

    Kind of an odd thing to blame on just “leftists”. You know, considering the recent rash of poll denialism here, here and also the rash of unemployment denialism here.

    Seeing that it is okay to paint with such a large brush, to generalize, that since a few people here at OtB happen to have an opinion that you do not agree with, that warrants slandering everyone occupying that side of the political spectrum as a child.

    Then it would only be fair for someone like me to say…

    The thing that jumps out about your list is that most of those are electricity related, and electricity is not a transportation fuel, and cannot be for perhaps 30 years.

    Why 30 years? We keep making gasoline powered cars, and they last on the road. If you want to get off oil you need to start replacing a healthy slice of new car purchases right away.

    Sorry to multi-post (actually it is kind of my thing), but really proponents of Keystone should understand this, via wikipedia:

    Proponents for the Keystone XL pipeline argue that it would allow the U.S. to increase its energy security and reduce its dependence on foreign oil.[63][64] An independent study conducted by the Cornell ILR Global Labor Institute reports that the crude oil routed to the Gulf Coast will end up being exported to Asia, and not contribute to energy independence or national security.[2] TransCanada CEO Russ Girling has argued that “the U.S. needs 10 million barrels a day of imported oil” and the debate over the proposed pipeline “is not a debate of oil versus alternative energy. This is a debate about whether you want to get your oil from Canada or Venezuela or Nigeria.”[65]

    We have a much greater chance of producing supply to meet our consumption than we do of cutting that demand in half. Nor do you liberals ever take into account just what that would mean and the opportunity cost that would incur. But that’s fine…just keep throwing 90 billion toward defunct companies…at least part of that money goes back to your political party in the form of campaign contributions.

    See, there is a consumer cost that has to be considered. If we simply outlaw gas cars that would have a tremendous negative effect on our economy and people’s lives. And for what? Some dubious claim that cars have a greater effect on climate than the natural orbit of the earth?

    The technology will get there eventually and it will still take energy. Now let’s churn up some nuclear power plants and help it along, rather than taxing the hell out gas and oil producers only to have an effect on the pockets of every day citizens.

    The idea of energy independence is bull, unless you are a net exporter of oil. Brazil was usually used as an example, but the fact is that because the country spends much less energy than in the US(People drive less, much less). There is also the fact that the country may have to build thermal plants in the future and import coal to fuel it and that “energy independence” does not count gas imported from Boliva.

    Unless Romney is willing to increase gas taxes to European levels. By the way, cars that run on natural gas are a great idea, but you lose something like 15% of the motor power. Not good on SUVland.

    @Paul: Unless you and a lot of other people are willing to live right next to a nuclear power plant, you may discover why nuclear power plants don’t get built. Yes, we have the technology. But it requires much more robust construction to guard against failures, and no one has yet found a way of guarding against mishandling of nuclear waste and mismanagement of the plant. (The only idea I’ve ever come up with is to insist that all the workers building the nuclear power plant and all the executives of the company running it be forced to live within 5 miles of the damn thing for the next 20 years.)

    Electric cars are not going to be viable until the range question has been addressed. This is a problem that has existed ever since the very beginning of the technology. Which was back in the early 1900s, by the way. Thomas Edison spent a huge amount of time and effort trying to get nickel batteries to work for electric cars.
