'Just words,' Mr. President?

Are these ‘just words," President Obama?
Barack Obama

"Under my plan of cap and trade plan makes electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket"'; "coal powered plants, natural gas, you name it..whatever the plants were...they will have to retrofit their operations..that will cost money and they will have to pass those costs onto consumers"

And are these just words?

So, if somebody wants to build a coal plant, they can - it's just that it will bankrupt them, because they are going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted.

Your Interior Secretary, who has done your bidding and placed one roadblock after another in the way of developing our own massive energy resources, stated in 2008 that he was opposed to opening up off-shore areas to new oil and gas drilling even if the price per gallon of gasoline hit $10 per gallon.

Mr. President-are these " Just Words"?

Also, President Obama, your Secretary of Energy (who, like Salazar, has been busy trying to turn off the spigot to our own oil and gas supplies), called for gasoline to cost $8 per gallon- to push it up to European levels

Mr. President, are these "Just Words"?

Thank you in advance, Mr. President, for the answers I am sure are coming and will be prefaced by "let me be clear".
