Promises

Via Instapundit, I find this article that lists the promises made by Obama in one speech.

This one stuck out at me:

"invest $15 billion a year in renewable sources of energy to create five million new energy jobs over the next decade"

So, doing some quick math I see that the annual expenditure per job created would be $3,000.  Really?  What kind of super fucking awesome health care benefits does that come with?  Leeches?

Let's not forget that the entire energy industry currently employs less than half that number.

Also, this one doesn't pass the laugh test:

not increase taxes on anyone if they "make under $250,000; you will not see your taxes increase by a single dime –- not your income taxes, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains tax"

Unbelievable. 

Here is some more laughing material for you:

build "a new electricity grid"

Hahahahhahaha... in 4 years?  8 years?   20 years?

"eliminate the oil we import from the Middle East in 10 years"

At the same time?

"make a deal with every young person who's here and every young person in America: If you are willing to commit yourself to national service, whether it's serving in our military or in the Peace Corps, working in a veterans home or a homeless shelter, then we will guarantee that you can afford to go to college no ifs ands or buts";

Wow.  Just wow.

He concluded:

Mark my words.  I will personally blow every man in America.  I will also empregnate every woman of child-bearing age with my holy seed bringing forth a new empire of light and purity that will last for 1,000 years.

Read the rest if you have a penchant for the absurd.
