Quote of the Week: WSJ, Biden, Oil and Milkshakes

As cognitive dissonance goes, this is a classic. President Biden’s explicit policy goal is to reduce U.S. oil and gas production, limiting the global supply of fossil fuels in the name of fighting climate change. Yet his Administration is now imploring the OPEC oil cartel to pump more oil so U.S. gasoline prices don’t rise more than they already have on Mr. Biden’s watch.

WSJ, 7/6/21

Not an inspirational quote. It’s just makes me laugh. Remember the movie There Will Be Blood?

Daniel Plainview: If you have a milkshake, and I have a milkshake. And I have a straw. … And my straw reaches across the room. I drink your milkshake!

If you are claiming you want to limit fossil fuel use here (and shutting things down like pipelines and such) then you can’t ask OPEC to pump more across the ocean.


Hypocrisy never gets old.
