Louisiana Senator John Kennedy (R) is one of many conservative voices questioning the Biden Administration’s failed, nonsensical energy policies —policies that empower U.S. enemies while weakening Uncle Sam on the world stage.
Kennedy joined Fox News on Wednesday to provide some colorful commentary (as always).
“I used to have a beagle named Roger, and Roger was a rascal,” Kennedy noted. “About every two weeks, Roger would run off — he’d always come back — but about half the time he’d come back dragging roadkill that he would hide under my back porch,” he explained. “President Biden’s energy policy looks like something Roger used to keep under my back porch.”
“It is a fact that America has the greatest, the strongest, economy in all of human history,” Kennedy continued. “We can’t run it without fossil fuels — not today not tomorrow. It is also a fact that, through reserves and technology, America can produce every drop of oil and natural gas that we need and have extra left over to sell to our friends,” he reminded.
“That presents a problem to President Biden because he has embraced the woke or berserk wing of the Democrat Party, and woke ideology says we need to get rid of oil and gas in the United States,” Kennedy explained.
“So President Biden has developed a new energy policy and it is this: Instead of producing at a cheaper cost our own oil and gas in America, we’re going to buy oil from foreign countries that hate us — in this case Venezuela — so those foreign countries will have more money to buy weapons to try to kill us. It’s a moronathon,” Kennedy quipped of Biden and his party’s energy policy.

From Town Hall:
“We have oil in the United States that would not require international transport to reach the American market, but Biden won’t allow pipelines or drilling to do so,” Town Hall reports.
“Instead, he’s allowing drilling in Venezuela that will require a transport across more than 2,000 miles to reach the United States with increased risk to wildlife and water quality along the route than if the oil was drilled, refined, and transported within the United States. ”
