Obamateurism of the Day

posted at 8:05 am on March 22, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Wonder why Barack Obama can’t come up with a coherent gas policy? Take a look at Obama’s speech at Sempra Energy in Bouder City, Nevada yesterday:

We have subsidized oil companies for a century.  We want to encourage production of oil and gas, and make sure that wherever we’ve got American resources, we are tapping into them.  But they don’t need an additional incentive when gas is $3.75 a gallon, when oil is $1.20 a barrel, $1.25 a barrel.  They don’t need additional incentives.  They are doing fine.

First, oil is not $1.20 or $1.25 a barrel.  Today it was trading at $107 per barrel, or around 86 times what the President quoted here.  Besides, this is about as big a non-sequitur as one can possibly create on the cost of gasoline.  To the extent that this is coherent at all, it sounds as if Obama is claiming that the difference between the price of a gallon of gasoline and the price of a barrel of oil equals profit. That’s about as ignorant a claim on energy costs as I’ve ever heard.

Update: Thanks to Instapundit for the link.  I have had a couple of people e-mail me to suggest that the transcription was in error, and Obama said “one twenty” as in $120 rather than $1.20.  That’s possible — but first, this is the official White House transcription. Second, the argument makes even less sense that way.  Obama’s claiming that the profit is the difference between $3.75 a gallon and $1.20 a barrel.  If it’s $120 a barrel in this form, Obama would be claiming that they’re taking a bath, not profiting.  And either way, the direct comparison between a gallon of refined gasoline and the cost of a barrel of oil to demonstrate the scope of profit is completely absurd.  As one correspondent to Instapundit says, it seems as if Obama is completely unaware that gasoline has to be refined from the oil.

Update II: The speech was in Boulder City, Nevada, not Boulder, Colorado.  I’ve fixed it, and thanks to Chris A for the head’s up.

Got an Obamateurism of the Day? If you see a foul-up by Barack Obama, e-mail it to me at [email protected] with the quote and the link to the Obamateurism. I’ll post the best Obamateurisms on a daily basis, depending on how many I receive. Include a link to your blog, and I’ll give some link love as well. And unlike Slate, I promise to end the feature when Barack Obama leaves office.

Oh come on. We all know what he was talking about. That’s really a cheap shot, Ed. We all misspeak once in a while. He was thinking of the rupiah, the currency of indonesia, and got off on the conversion rate.

Like that hasn’t happened to us all.

Jeez

Something tells me that one reason the Obamas are living the high life right now (Moochelle’s demon spawn getting spring break in Mexico at 13) is that Barry’s ghostwritten books aren’t going to be selling so well come next year…

Apparently, once. Suckered in by “Hope and Change” without ever asking “What Hope? What Change?” from someone who fundamentally wanted to change the US.

Or because he was an articulate good looking guy.

Or because the Republicans put McCain as a candidate.

Let’s hope not twice.

CorporatePiggy on March 22, 2012 at 8:17 AM

I’ve read somewhere that The oil companies make .03c a gal profit, the government takes .50c
please note the profit/taxes listed above are from memory and may be off by a bit yet do reflect the gist of it.

Gwillie on March 22, 2012 at 8:18 AM

Gallons, barrels, dollars and hundreds of dollars, what’s the dif?

The important thing is to remember that Obama’s war on domestic oil and gas development isn’t the cause of high prices. That whole supply/demand thing isn’t applicable. It is much better to rely on buying oil from foreign countries that hate us than to produce our own, economically and strategically.

How do we know these things? Because Obama opened his pie hole and said stuff. And the Media are repeating the stuff Obama said. So it must be true.

Tax deductions, but Obama-lama-ding-dong calls them subsidies, it fits better with his Big Bad Oil Company narrative.

Is it just me, or do his whiny accusations seem even whinier and more baseless? Why isn’t anyone calling him on this?

Captain Kickass, indeed!

GREAT video, Ed!

herm2416 on March 22, 2012 at 8:32 AM

What gets me is the utter lack of critical thinking. It makes no sense to think that oil is $1.25 a barrel but since that is what was on the teleprompter that is what Obama said. Just like a trained seal.

Happy Nomad on March 22, 2012 at 8:35 AM

That’s about as ignorant a claim on energy costs as I’ve ever heard.

Calling it ignorance is being generous. It’s hard to sort the ignorance out from the rhetorical trickery and deliberate deception.

It doesn’t matter how many stupid things he says or does, he’s brilliant.

NoDonkey on March 22, 2012 at 8:39 AM

Who needs facts and details? Mr. Obama relies on the ignorance of many voters and a complicit msm that helps keep them ignorant.

lynncgb on March 22, 2012 at 8:41 AM

Let’s see. Exxon had $52 billion in pre-tax income in 2010, and paid $21.6 billion in taxes (45% rate); Conoco-Phillips had $19.8 billion pre-tax, paid $8.3 billion in taxes (42%); Chevron $32 billion pre-tax, $12.9 billion in taxes ((40%). General Electric had $14.2 billion pre-tax, paid $1.05 billion in taxes (7.4%).

So yeah, let’s keep on demonmizing oil companies.

Trafalgar on March 22, 2012 at 8:45 AM

it sounds as if Obama is claiming that the difference between the price of a gallon of gasoline and the price of a barrel of oil equals profit. That’s about as ignorant a claim on energy costs as I’ve ever heard.

He probably does believe that. He’s not a particularly well-informed individual (remember how he whined in 2009 about how his auto insurance company would not cover his collision damage?; couldn’t understand why his liability insurance didn’t pay for everything). He’s also intellectually lazy (remember when Energy Secretary Chu tried to explain something to him with a slide presentation, and Barry/Baraka got up after a couple of slides and said “that’s it Steve, I’m done” and walked out)?

He’s an arrogant narcissist who knows very little about how the real world operates, and isn’t interested in learning because he thinks he’s so much smarter and better than everyone else.

AZCoyote on March 22, 2012 at 8:45 AM

Really, our child that occupies the white house needs to stick with insults along the lines of “aggressively and deliberately ignorant” and “poopyhead.” Anything beyond that and it’s obvious that Junior is punching below his weight.

Someone should correct Mr. President with the correct price of oil. If he believes the implications he seems to be suggesting, then oil companies are actually losing ~$100/gallon gas sold.

Looking at his track record of investing in energy companies, though, he’d probably want to start subsidizing in big oil.

novaculus on March 22, 2012 at 8:54 AM

Didn’t Robert Schlesinger tell just a few days ago that “…preparing remarks ahead of time allows the president’s staff to make sure he’s got the facts on his side…” and that “A teleprompter is a visible reminder of this preparation as opposed to a typed speech sitting on the lectern.”
.
So which is it, Mr. Schlesinger? Was Ø dealing with the facts here? Was he momentarily “off the teleprompter?” There is no coherent explanation for his incoherent babbling, is there?
.
I actually tried to get to a number like “oil at $1.25 per gallon” rather than per barrel and the numbers do not work. This is just a flat-out falsehood that Ø and his “speechifiers” carelessly dropped into this speech because they, amateurishly, don’t do anything like what Mr. Schlesinger said. No research, no facts.

Once again, A i r b a l l Øblama, he shoots a brick, his only trick!

VelvetElvis on March 22, 2012 at 9:04 AM

While I’m generally among the first to take the opportunity to point out Obama’s mastery of that particularly juvenile brand of ignorance and arrogance common among today’s so-called “intellectual elite”, I have to make a small point in his defense on the “$1.20” thing.

It seems to be very “hip” these days, in some circles, to refer to $100 as “a buck”, and perhaps Obama is just emulating this particular affectation, as vapid liberals are wont.

mr.blacksheep on March 22, 2012 at 9:07 AM

This is just another example of Obama saying the exact opposite of what he’s actually doing. In the real world, who could possibly get away with saying the price of a barrel of oil is $1.25 or $1.20? Did anybody even correct him on that? That’s the real story here.

GeorgiaBuckeye on March 22, 2012 at 9:11 AM

But they don’t need an additional incentive when gas is $3.75 a gallon, when oil is $1.20 a barrel, $1.25 a barrel. (laughter)

KOOLAID2 on March 22, 2012 at 9:11 AM

My first thought was that me might have accidentally added a decimal point, while reading the teleprompter, but the whole point he seems to be trying to make is predicated on oil costing $1.25/barrel…so either he misread and then improvised a bit (demonstrating sheer cluelessness) or this was scripted to deliberately mislead (demonstrating a presumed cluelessness on the part of the audience).

talkingpoints on March 22, 2012 at 9:24 AM

Remember when Obama said 10,000 people were killed in the Greensburg, KS tornado, with his posse standing behind him all nodding their heads at how grim it was, but the actual death toll was slightly less than that (actually was 12 dead). If Sarah Palin made mistakes like this, it would be proof that she’s an idiot chillbilly.

Does anyone have an account of what he actually said?. It seems possible that the WH transcribed “a buck twenty a barrel, a buck twenty-five a barrel” to what they did.

For those that are math challenged, like the Austrian-speaker-in-Chief, the current price of crude oil comes out to about $2.55 per gallon. Of course that’s before any refining and distribution occurs–which would be more inconvenient facts 0bummer doesn’t care about.

Nutstuyu on March 22, 2012 at 9:39 AM

End the drilling moratoriums, Obama.

President George W. Bush and the Democrat-controlled Congress did so in 2008, and the price of gas dropped more than 50% in less than 5 months.

The same as every other company, depreciation of equipment and depletion of resources.

OAN, everyone (but the smartest man in the history of the universe) does know that a barrel of oil is 42 gallons and that there is not a 100% conversion rate? Also that it takes energy to ‘crack’ oil into gasoline, diesel, and kerosene…

As much as I think Obama is clueless on energy, economy, history, geography and the Constitution, I think this does not rank as an Obamateurism. Ed makes the assumption that the President, by stating or misstating the oil price and the gas price that he’s saying the profit is the difference between them. Actually that is not what he said. My take is that he is saying with the oil price so high, the oil companies are making a profit on the discovery end, and with the gas prices so high they are making a profit on the refining end.
Not withstanding that the subsidy garbage is ridiculous, this one statement doesn’t make an Obamateurism in my view. We’ve got better ones than this.

But it is killing them, absolutely killing them, that he is bragging about producing oil!

Shades of GEORGE W. BUSH, PERRY, and what you said above “Drill here, drill now!” He makes fun of it one day then brags about it the next. I understand him, but they are nuts.

Greg Toombs on March 22, 2012 at 11:00 AM

Why aren’t the Republicans pushing the fact that Senate Democrats just blocked a bill called “The Energy Freedom and Economic Prosperity Act”, which stops all energy subsidies? They can use that to point out that Obama believes some subsidies are better than others. They can also point out how this benefits his political supporters, who in turn take government money and funnel it back into the political coffers of Democrats. (As I have said before, this is legalized money laundering where public money goes to government employees, gets automatically deducted to unions and then given to one party, who seems to always increase public spending.)

Soros is only the public face of the movement to control/rule us all. He is – in his turn – nothing but a puppet; controlled by those who are more powerful than he.
As the “public face” for those people, he takes the ‘blame’, as it were, for the evil that he endorses – but he expects to reap rich rewards for his service.

Solaratov on March 22, 2012 at 1:20 PM

I was going to ask whether it was off-the-cuff or a teleprompter speech, but then thought it wouldn’t matter. A teleprompter speech would presumably be reviewed by Obama for his approval before it gets loaded into the TOTUS.

In any case, he may not care about the particulars of how those numbers were arrived at. It is not like they would blow up his campaign to get re-elected. If the press were putting him under the gun for gaffs and mis-statements, than he’d care because looking like a fool or demonstrating incompetence like this would be not in his interests. But we know where the MSM stands on his administration.
