Obama doesn't accept responsibility for gas prices
The Examiner ^ | 2/22/12 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 02/22/2012 12:31:45 PM PST by AtlasStalled

President Obama does not "accept responsibility" for high gas prices, his spokesman indicated today, arguing that Obama has done everything he could to bring down the price of oil and blaming the high gas prices on oil price increases caused by global factors.

He says this just weeks after he killed the Keystone Pipeline. I cannot fathom what reality these people live in.

BS.

President "Energy Prices Will Necessarily Skyrocket" owns this.

Period.

When the Cretin-in-Chief says he’s doing “...everything he could...”, he’s actually having a rare moment of truth.

That’s because there’s absolutely nothing this stupid b*stard could do.

I used to be solidly against abortions.

Then I learned about the Obamaloon.

Right after using his time machine to start WW-II, George Bush raised the gas prices so he and his oil buddies could make a killing in profits. I do expect the last part of this satire to be reported in some left wing blogs.

So much for bowing to the House of Sa’ud and a friendly piece of correspondence to Iran. Then, there’s Neda.

The buck stops at 0bama’s desk. End of story.

This will not end well.

Listen this idiot has been in over 3 years now.
Has he accepted blame for anything?
NO.
Has he taken credit for things he didn't do?
YES.
Why do you expect him to take the blame now. . . . . .
His idiot in command Art Carneys son said the Republicans killed the pipe line. . . . MSM didn't blink and eye and reported it as the truth. . . .

He doesn’t accept responsibility for anything. In that case, we don’t need him. He should resign.

Ummm, he didn't kill it. The White Hut said so yesterday.

I'm surprised he did do his regular Blame Bush gambit.

Really? I would blame high gasoline prices on Obama’s utter lack of a fiscal policy combined with a loose monetary policy. It’s called INFLATION.

But I notice that the word has gone out through Obama’s minions that they need a bogeyman so they are going to blame “Oil Speculators”. OK. But commodity speculators lose almost as many as they win. Plus the rising price in a free-market signals oil producers to produce more... which in the long-term lowers prices for the consumer.

The only problem is that the free-market isn’t functioning very well under The Dear Leader.

The reality where a majority of the voting public is stupid enough to elect them.

The white house statement above is clear evidence that Obama and his staff are in over the heads when it comes to knowing how to vigorously lead this country and run the federal government even after being in office for these past three years.

So I say it is time to give someone else a chance to be president and see if he can do something about these horrible growing gas prices.

So let's give someone else a chance to try to do something about this gas mess.

I don't think that a new president could do any worse.

I don't think that we need four more tortuous years of more President Obama excuses after excuses when it comes to problems like this horrible gas price mess.

Of course not! From the very beginning, Obama and his Admin of criminal stooges have used the ‘Bart Simpson defense’ on every occasion.

But no matter how much he gets his flunkies out to lie for him, no matter how much the lying Leftie pig rats of the “Mainstream” media lie for him...the ‘on the ground’, in everyone’s faces *truth* of his ‘Reverse Seward Folly’ is going to end up having him and his Eco-retard payola suicides being held accountable for how they’ve royally clusterf*cked Americas fuel supply.

Ot will go down in history as a world class f*ck-up, by a world class f*ck-up and his f*cked up administration of fools.

I’m waiting for “it’s Bush’s fault”. As an aside, there is no doubt in my mind that Obama is a Muslim because the Koran says it is OK to lie, lie and lie some more if it furthers the Muslim cause - the destruction of the great SATAN (America).

It gets better than just killing the pipeline

read this and please don’t have a brain aneurysm as you do

http://www.wnd.com/2012/02/obamas-giveaway-oil-rich-islands-to-russia/

I take this to mean that Obama gave Russia the land our Oil sits under. We will then buy the oil from Russia and pay inflated prices for that oil.
But it creates jobs .. for Russians ...

He is a traitor
