If Obama becomes president, my advice would be to stock up on long underwear, candles, oil lamps, generators, and anything else you can think of to supplement your energy needs.

That wasn’t all he said about his energy policies.  Hot Air has more audio from the same interview, including this little tidbit:

You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, uh, you know — Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.

First, What you were never intended to know in this election, written by an Obama (and former Hillary Clinton) staff member.

Put simply, you are being manipulated. That was and is our job – to manipulate you (the electorate) and the media (we already had them months ago). Our goal is to create chaos with the other side, not hope. I’ve come to the realization (as the campaign already has) that if this comes to the issues, Barack Obama doesn’t have a chance. His only chance is to foster disorganization, chaos, despair, and a sense of inevitability among the Republicans. It has worked up until now. Joe the Plumber has put the focus on the issues again, and this scares us more than anything.

She also discloses how they are able to skew the polls:

The only way he wins is over a dispirited, disorganized, and demobilized opposition. This is how it has been for all of his campaigns. What surprises me is that everyone has fallen for it. You may point to the polls as proof of the inevitability of all of this. If so, you have fallen for the oldest trick in the book. How did we skew these polls, you might ask? It all starts with the media “buzz” which has been generated over the campaign. Many stories are generated on the powerful Obama ground game, and how many new voters were registered. None of this happens by coincidence. It is all part of the poll-skewing process. This makes pollsters change their mixes to reflect these new voters and tilt the mix more towards Democratic voters. What is not mentioned or reported on is not the “under-reported cell phone users or young voters” we hear so much about. What is underreported is you.

The whole point is to make Eeyores out of us.  Eeyores stay home on Election Day because they believe their vote won’t make a difference.

If you are an Eeyore, or have Eeyore tendancies, then please read this post at HillBuzz, Three things the Obamedia will do to depress Republican turnout and help Obama.

(1) Calls for McCain to just give up and quit, because the race is over.<….>

(2)  Wild claims of Obama winning states that shock and surprise you. <….>

(3)  Repeated insistance that blacks and young people will decide this election, and they are all going to vote in record numbers for Obama.  <….>

They give logical, reasoned, and historical supporting examples of why we should not believe the above claims.  Hillary supporters ought to know.  They saw it happen during the primaries.

BTW, if you’re a Hillary supportor, or someone who gained some new-found respect for Hillary during the primaries, you would enjoy adding HillBuzz to your regular reading.
