With the help of a Democrat cheerleader media Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is trying to invent some new truths about the price of gas .
Speaking to a gathering at the National Press Club in Washington recently Salazar repeated the tired Democrat line that the President has little control over the price of gasoline.
Using child-like simple syntax so his media friends could take his words down and report them just as the Administration wants them presented, Salazar said, No one has the ability. Not even Harry Potter to simply wave a magic wand to say we are going to have gas prices at $2 or $2.50.
strictest sense Salazar is of course correct in saying the President cant directly do anything about the price of oil.
Nevertheless, there were no questions about why Barack Obama has not used his powers to free up the process of finding and refining crude oil which would bring the prices down by crippling oil speculators in a few days.
Salazar mentioned that oil prices were set by global economics which of course conveniently absolves Obama of any responsibility for gas prices that are currently approaching a national average of $4.00 a gallon with a possibility of $5.00 a gallon on Memorial Day.
Feeding his dimwitted audience more of what they want to write and say, Salazar then babbled on about green energy and staying the course as the best energy policy.
No one in the supine media questioned why staying a course that has given us European type high gas prices isnt lunacy, but Salazar knew the media would never be impolitic enough to point that out.
Lying about wanting an all of the above energy strategy that excludes drilling anywhere oil could actually be found

However, even the dumbest dolt in the media should be able to look at the explosion in the production of natural gas, causing the market price to come down drastically, and know that they are being lied to....not that they care.
The price of gasoline in Europe has little to do with oil prices. The reason the Euros pay more than us is TAXES! (big font for big taxes). We can never get Obama's dream of catching up with their prices unless he jacks up the tax to dollars per gallon.
I saw some DNC Fool (but I repeat myself) on Fox this morning taking credit for the increase in fracking under the Zero administration - as though they had everything to do with it and not the States.
are you sure he said “fracking”?
I am sure sick of this evil and incompetent bunch of socialists.
LOL - Good point!
