MoveOn.org Fails Einstein’s Test of Insanity
By Newt Gringrich
Einstein in 1921 with his second wife Elsa (call her Else). She was his cousin. My goodness! Else does resemble Nancy Pelosi, doesn’t she? If Else were still alive, she would be highly upset at me saying that. Pelsoi should consider it a compliment. These words are Don White’s, not Speaker Newt’s.
Newt Gingrich’s words follow:
You’d think this much would be obvious to the Left, but the email they sent to their supporters and the advertisement they want to run is filled with the same discredited arguments about American energy production that the American people have rejected over this summer.
It claims not only that more American energy, including opening up additional areas to oil and natural gas development, would have no immediate effect on gas prices, but that even in the long term, more American oil and gas on the market is only a “gimmick.”
Someone should remind MoveOn.org that Einstein’s definition of insanity was “doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.”
Not only does MoveOn.org still think that the Left’s same, misguided energy scarcity policies are good for America, despite the obvious; they also think that the American people are going to continue to buy their arguments.
That’s just crazy, and you don’t have to be a Nobel Prize winning physicist to know it.
That’s why we can be confident in our solutions and our answers to their faulty arguments. Check out our Facts Sheet at American Solutions for rebuttals to the anti-energy left’s most common arguments.
This summer, as you talk with your friends and neighbors about high gas prices, don’t let the anti-energy left get away with using the same discredited arguments, and don’t let them shirk the responsibility they bear for putting us in the energy crisis today.
