A Ben Cole Sighting on FOX: Looking Mighty Dapper!

Former Emmanuel Enid staff member Benjamin Cole is now the Director of Communications for the American Energy Alliance, the advocacy arm of the Institute for Energy Research. With energy prices soaring, we are likely to see much more of the quotable king of quips. Congrats, Ben! Nice to know someone on television actually knows how to color cordinate a tie and handkerchief. Can't wait to see more of you on national news and I am eagerly anticipating a head-to-head debate against an Obama administration spokesperson. Somebody pass the popcorn! (Ben's quip is 55 second's into the Fox News video below -- you will have to wait for the video to buffer and watch a thirty second ad before Fox News appears. The quip is very short but quite funny).

Wade,

Yes, Ben Cole once again analyses a situation with a prophet-like quip.

His tongue-in cheek for the Obama powers to kill the first five people of the EPA to get their attention is priceless.

Once at a meeting where my brother-in-law had been kicked out of church by a preacher, Ben said of the preacher that he was like Nebuchadnezzar raising his arms to the sky and saying, ‘see what I have accomplished’.

About a year later, the preacher was fired while my brother-in-law was voted citizen of the year by the community.

Rex,

Ben said the head of EPA should walk in and "fire" the first five people he sees, not "kill." Just wished to set the record straight for those who don't watch the video.

If you are a Director of Communications of a large non-profit and were to say what you wrongly say was said, you would be looking for a new job by the end of the day.

Wade,
Ah! I think we might both be looking for a new job by the end of the day.

For the record:
The commenter for the News said: “One critic had a suggestion for the PRESIDENT.”

Ben Cole said:

“He [Obama] should follow the advice of the administrator. He should walk into the EPA headquarters, fire the first five people he sees and it would probably become an agency a little easier to manage from that point forward.”

I’m 80 and my memory is going. What’s your excuse? :)

Wade Burleson said...

Replacing the head of the EPA for the President is not quite as eggregious of an error as replacing "fire" with "kill." :)

Laughing.

Wade,

With the help of:

I think I finally got the picture.

The head of EPA, Al Armendariz (is he Muslim?) was appointed by Obama.

Armendariz stated his methods for dealing with non-compliant oil and gas companies were like the Romans…they’d go into villages and crucify the first five guys they saw.

Maybe that’s where I got “kill” from crucify.:)

What the EPA did made Obama look bad so Ben Cole advised Obama to used Armendariz’s method on the EPA by firing the first five he met.

Hey! I see this 2,000 years ago:
Non-complaint Christians (Gentiles) were told (Acts 15:1) they were not saved by “circumcision party” [EPA Democrats?]Galatians 2:12 Holman

Hey Wade. Long time no comments. Glad your site is going again.

Forget the EPA. When is Ben going to publish his book on Paige Patterson? Will we next see Ben's old friend Wiley Drake on Fox?
