George Allen: Obama’s overreach, and the need for a robust domestic energy policyEnergy independencePodcastsPolicyPoliticsVirginia

in this interview with George Allen, we take a final look at the warmed-over statism that masqueraded as the President’s State of the Union address. But we also take a long look at the state of the administration’s energy policies. Allen notes it can be summed-up in a single word: Solyndra. That leads us to a discussion of the administration’s continuing refusal to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, offshore energy exploration and just about anything else to do with domestic oil, gas and coal production — preferring instead to rely upon conflict oil from the Middle East and other garden spots that are willing to take our dollars and turn them against us. Allen makes a strong case for domestic production and exploration, and says he’ll be “like a dog on a bone” on this issue throughout the campaign against Tim Kaine.
