Pres. Obama’s opposition to the Keystone oil pipeline is a symptom of his “petrophobia,” radio host Lars Larson told Fox News yesterday.
Speaking to Fox News host Megyn Kelly, Larson made his charge against Obama: “You know, Megyn, it’s sad – but, this president is guilty of petrophobia.”
“He’s simply afraid of allowing Americans to have the oil, the diesel, the gasoline that they need to make this country run,” Larson said, adding:
“This is a sad thing when we see the intolerance of petrophobia practiced from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.”
Larson then offered a cure for Pres. Obama’s affliction:
“The president needs to get over it, get behind the pipeline, allow those union jobs to go forward, and allow that oil to flow.
“I mean, if we can allow millions of illegal aliens to cross our southern border, can’t we allow a few hundred thousand barrels of oil to cross our northern border?”
Larson even suggested that Obamacare activist Sandra Fluke – who gained national media attention by saying that the government should force health insurers to cover birth control because it’s too expensive to pay for out-of-pocket – could help persuade the Pres. Obama to support the Keystone pipeline:
“Have Sandra Fluke call her buddy in the White House and explain she can’t get through law school without having gasoline for her car. That might do the trick.”
