PJ Media: Governor Palin Was Right on ‘Drill Baby, Drill’

Nice little writeup over at PJ Media:

Remember her chant, “Drill, baby, drill”? Well, how about that:

Michael Walsh notes a piece at Fox News:

Back when gas topped $4 a gallon, Republicans chanted “drill, baby, drill” at rallies across the country — arguing more domestic drilling would increase supplies, reduce dependence on foreign oil and boost the U.S. economy. Democrats, almost universally, mocked the GOP plan. In 2012, President Obama called it “a slogan, a gimmick, and a bumper sticker … not a strategy.”

[…]

“Of course [Obama] was wrong. We’ve seen oil prices fall internationally now by half since last June,” said American Enterprise Institute economist Ben Zycher. “The U.S. is now the biggest oil and gas producer in the world, or almost that, and the effect has been to drive prices down as we’ve seen.”

So of course, Governor Palin was right despite the excessive mocking from elitists.

And as PJ Media points out:

Barack Obama: wrong about everything

(H/T to our friend, Pat on Twitter)

iizthatiiz also pointed this out recently.  Just try and keep from away from the lead of news cycles.
