President it really is you're riot speaking of riots which are coming soon.
At the same event Obama also talked about energy here's what he said quote.
We have begun the process of changing how we think about energy in this country.
He's done that yes.
We don't even think.
Tree it's like.
Whatever spills out of that -- It's magic wall blocks I don't even know how that energy gets in there came with the house site.
The primary energy sources the Americans relied on to operate and function.

Box of clues when it.
Put in that box maybe -- a president who says making energy prices skyrocket is necessary.
I know the odds of finding something that obvious really slim especially if you work for the Justice Department.
Maybe have a chance of finding out to all I don't know up -- press somewhere where they're printing up money.
And Oriole is paying to the dollar.
So if you devalue the dollar.
Your energy prices would necessarily.
Wouldn't name mister president.
Maybe you could find an out of control government agency going out of their way to shut down coal plants like the EPA.
They're new stricter regulations have already caused one the country's largest power companies.
The American Electric Power to close at least fly -- plants.
Battles that cost us hundreds of jobs and invest six billion dollars.
To meet the new requirements a coal -- Needs to -- By the way another one in San Antonio just announced that it's gonna close shop because of the stricter regulations as well -- It was a decision really driven by expectations that we're gonna have to face more challenging environmental regulations.
