The Latest Right Wing Drivel: President Obama to Blame for Power Outages

According to right wing blog, Prison Planet:
The rolling blackouts now being implemented in Texas and across the country as record cold weather grips the United States are a direct consequence of the Obama administration’s agenda to lay siege to the coal industry, launch a takeover of infrastructure under the contrived global warming scam, and help usher in the post-industrial collapse of America.
The inability of power companies to meet demand is almost exclusively a consequence of the Obama administration’s publicly stated goal to bankrupt the coal industry and in turn ram through the de-industrialization of America under the guise of the phony global warming mantra.
What a truckload of steaming bullshit.  President Obama is no more to blame for the power outages than any other person.  The reality is, demand skyrocketed due to the extreme weather blanketing the nation, including Arizona.  Nothing that President Obama has done or has proposed caused the power outages contrary to what PP might think.

I don't agree with President Obama on a lot of issues, but I won't blame him for power outages or deaths due to extreme weather.  Maybe the right wingers over at Prison Planet should rethink their blame.
