President Obama to address soaring gas prices in Florida speech
fox ^ | 2/21/12 | NewsCore

Posted on 02/21/2012 6:56:02 PM PST by Nachum

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama will deliver a speech on energy and rising gas prices Thursday at the University of Miami, FOX News Channel reported.

White House officials told FOX the president will lay out an "all of the above" approach to the nation's energy security that he has previously outlined and will tout the fact that domestic oil production has risen on his watch while imports have decreased.

Gas prices have continued to climb in recent months, surpassing $4 per gallon in some areas. According to the Automobile Association of America's (AAA) Daily Fuel Gauge Report, the average price of regular gasoline in the US rose Tuesday to $3.57 per gallon, a 12.6-percent increase from the year-ago average price of $3.17.

The White House on Tuesday acknowledged that gas prices were causing Americans to feel pain at the pump, but said there's little the federal government can do to contain rising costs.

at this rate, it will be approaching $5/gal by labor day weekend, right before the elections. then we’ll see some real painc and rightfully so. What was it that Obama’s energy director said, we need to find a way to make our gasoline cost as much as it does in Europe? Well way to go jackwad, mission accomplished.

Don’t be surprised if some Obama magic appears right about this time and gas prices plunge, just in time for the elections. This could be one of the messiah’s miracles in the making to convince the sheeple...

But, that’s the problem with false messiahs; somebody else gets crucified.

Thank a liberal the next time you speak with them that your oil futures are through the roof. Tell that liberal that Obama is the best thing since sliced bread as far as oil goes. Watch that liberal head explode.

Ya, let’s all buy Chevy Volts.

I think Obama once said we should all buy cars with better gas mileage, if we were concerned about rising gas prices. I think if a Republican had said that, the liberals and the MSM would have been saying that the President had a “let them eat cake” callousness about rising gas prices.

Of course, we know that since Obama is a good Democrat, the MSM will cover for him.

The miserable SOB caused the price spike. Now he is going to take credit for trying to lower the prices?

Every bumper ought to have a sticker saying, "Bush left you with $1.87/gas. Obama brought you $4+/gal gas. How's that hope and change working for ya now?"

Right. Leave it to Bammy to try and get credit for raising domestic production. Domestic production has risen IN SPITE of Bammy, not because of him.

And where the hell are the Republicans to point this out?

Speaking of the Volt...has anyone seen the latest commercial for it? Pretty freaky propaganda.

It says something about "it's not what you wanted, but it's the car we had to build to save the country.

I kid you not. With Bammy's speech today on communism (we have to all work together for everyone's good) and the Volt commercial, they've pretty much gone full blown tyranny. They don't even try and hide it, anymore.

"Put some more air in your tires."

"I did say NECESSARILY SKYROCKET, didn't I?"

"Just go buy a new car with better mileage."

"little the federal government can do"

In a nation that has hundreds of years of energy reserves?

The very same administration that can "regulate" the weather on a global scale?

Little bammy is getting further and further from reality via his narcissist delusional construct in his version of "reality." Too many yes men kissing his azz, too many communist masters back-channel feeding his personal foutune, too many GEVD's (Government Entitlement Voting Drones), too many go-pee's (GOP-E's) sniffing around for a deal.

Everything he does turns to crap the instant he touches it. After a summer of astronomical gasoline prices and the cost of goods is soaring due to energy and transportation costs his real poll numbers could be in the low forties, perhaps even the high thirties.

I would be looking for the little fagot to go right `round the bend in October...

They are also advertising the “new” VOLT ER for Extended Range.

Did they stuff another bank of batteries under the hood? Instead of 40 miles on a charge it’ll do 50?
