Happy Birthday, Barack Obama.

Born Aug. 4, 1961, presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) starts Monday in Chicago and heads on his birthday to Michigan to talk about energy.

This comes as Obama has moved to be open to very limited off shore oil drilling--if that brings in congressional votes for a bigger energy plan he wants with an emphasis away from fossil fuels.

You might want to ask your State representative energy conservation? How much gas, oil and electricity we could save, if we sent illegal aliens packing.
We cannot keep up the demand for it right now! Oil! Diversity Alliance for Sustainable America.(earthtimes) stated in it's article that if the U.S. grants amnesty and gives citizenship to 12 to 30 million illegal migrants already here, as McCain, Obama and the majority of Democrats propose. That all those naturalized citizens could possibly add 120 million U.S. and foreign-born relatives to the U.S., in the next 20 years whom all will CONSUME MAJOR ENERGY. Does the American people need to escalate the 315 million plus population, the census estimates we have now? To a new total of 435 million?

The executive director of (DASA) admitted "Proposal to reduce energy costs in the U.S. will not work unless we also simultaneously curb U.S. population growth by reducing immigration and curbing teen pregnancies." Severing the illegal immigration occupation and deporting those already here is a good start, but not the complete solution to this serious energy problem that cannot be reversed. Unless another Nikola Tesla, an underrated genius of the 19th century invents a some new form of energy, we will be reliant on fossil fuels for years to come? Clean coal, geothermal, eco-fuel and of course wind power and solar. The latter is energy that is a perpetual source of unimaginable power that knows no bounds.

Americans cannot afford to subsidize illegal aliens here with billions in our tax dollars, or the millions who will jump the fence in the future. Only THE FEDERAL SAVE ACT (H.R.4088) offers any chance of halting this overpopulation quicksand It's enactment will give ICE and the police more enforcement powers. Join NUMBERSUSA for free and become part of a solution and not lies.

Happy Birthday, Senator Obama - I wish you many, many more. May God continue to bless you and your family.

Great idea. Plenty of old factories or brownfields ready for new ones.

umm, How appropriate to celebrate his birthday anniversary with an overly edited and overly rehearsed speech so that he can cover up his latest flip flop. I wonder what the rebate will be...Could it be something like what Hillary Clinton and John McCain suggested during the primaries? I will never vote for this guy!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
MAY YOU HAVE A 100 MORE!
ENJOY YOUR DAY, IT'S ALSO MY NEPHEW'S BIRTHDAY
AS WELL! HE WILL TURN 15!
TO THE FUTURE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF, HAVE A GREAT
DAY, YOU'VE EARNED IT AND CONGRATULATIONS!
