“It Is Important For Us To Send Some Price Signals To Change Behavior” – Obama
Flopping Aces ^ | 03-09-11 | Curt

Obama said in 2007:

"It is important for us to send some price signals to change behavior"

"It's not going to be painless"

He said one of the goals of his Cap and Trade was to ensure no one could build a coal powered plant, or if they did, it would bankrupt them.

Now, we're all going bankrupt on rising gas prices:

Gasoline prices are up again by double digits in all areas around the country compared to the week before. The national gasoline average is $.77 above the price this time last year.

77 cents in a year! And rising.

That's changing behavior for you.

All the while Obama smiles down on all the little people from the Oval Office and he does nothing to help stabilize and/or lower the price of gas. Why? Well, we already know the answer to that.

"Send some price signals to change behavior."

The liberals like Tom Friedman are loving it...in fact calling for the price to stay at 4 dollars a gallon. If it ever goes below that price? Raise taxes: (2:30 minute mark)

Transcript:

Gasoline is almost four dollars a gallon. We know that’s a red line where people really start to change their behavior. At a minimum, I’d be talking about a tax that basically says we’re going to keep it at four dollars a gallon. If it goes below, well true it up. If it goes above that we’re not going to touch it. May be say, we’re not going to implement it until 2012. So you signal people it’s going-- be coming. You don’t change the-- you don’t harm the economy today but you get people to change their behavior.

Behaviors are going to soon change but it won’t be the kind of change der Fuehrer or our national socialist democrat party expects.

FUBO & FAD

Natural free-market price signals are forbidden.

Government ordered price changes or prohibitions on changes are wonderful.

No...please...feel free to steal as much money as you want from me and my family. We were only going to use it for luxuries like food and heat. That’s not nearly as important as you using our money to bribe dimwit Democrats to vote for a sleaze-bag like you.

"It is important for us to send some price signals to change behavior"

spoken like a typical libtard mentality of behaviorism and environmental determinism.

Well, Sir,

How’s about you and Michelle change your behaviors to indicate a CHANGE in your “Party Like It’s 1967” and “Obscenely Expensive Vacations for Us But Not For Thee” mentality? - Your gargantuan carbon footprint is second only to the Grand Canyon!

Did you folks hear the hate for America coming out of the mouths of the PBS & NPR clan??? Ah, maybe one day you will wake up in the morning and realize that POTUS Obama is the biggest American & America hater of the lot!!! That’s it, Mr. & Ms. America, stay gently asleep at the wheel and let Obama bring America down, unfettered by brainless American morons. What should be happening IMHO, is that Americans overwhelmingly should be screaming for Obama to resign or demanding his impeachment.

LOL

Carter V2.0

Little JimmyC called for a 50 USD tax on every barrel on imported oil.

Instead we got the Dept of Energy and now pay over $100/BBL for oil.

Many of us listened to his pastor of 20 years and were convinced well before he won the DNC nomination. Frankly I was worried about the Hitlery, not Obama - naively thinking "there is no way this guy can be elected in America." Boy was I ever wrong about how dumbed down America has become and how much influence the libtard run media has over the population.

Glad to hear it. I was wondering if I was the only one feeling that vibe sometimes.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Hey Barry, maybe we don’t want to change our behavior. Maybe we want you and our other duly elected legislators to make sure we have a readily available, affordable source of fuel for our big gas guzzling SUV’s we all like so much. Jackwagon!!!
