Presidential Speech Writer

On November 3, 2008, I wrote:

“During the [Republican National Convention], the chant ‘Drill, Baby, Drill’ revealed a recklessly cavalier attitude that boggles the mind. There is no hint of humbly making the difficult choice, picking the most hopeful way through a dark path…. Drilling may be necessary in the final days of the petroleum age as we continue to develop alternatives, but such an easy resort to an unsustainable and destructive resource is irresponsible.”

And today, President Obama said:

“And so that's part of the reason you never heard me say, "Drill, baby, drill," because we can't drill our way out of the problem. It may be part of the mix as a bridge to a transition to new technologies and new energy sources, but we should be pretty modest in understanding that the easily accessible oil has already been sucked up out of the ground.”

The only conclusion I can draw is that the President is reading my blog. I bet he chuckles at all those stories about Tobias.

that's fantastic! if you weren't busy changing the world, i'd encourage you to run for office there in the great white north. but that would only distract you for the good business at hand. in the meantime, keep writing. 'you know who' is reading.
