.....Obama goes on offense over high gasoline prices (It's your ball and chain now, baby!)
Yahoo News ^ | 02/23/12 | Jeff Mason

Posted on 02/23/2012 6:59:38 AM PST by AngelesCrestHighway

As Republican presidential candidates toss barbs at Barack Obama over expensive gasoline, the U.S. president and his team are going on the offensive with a strategy to divert blame and prepare voters for higher costs. In subtle and not so subtle ways, Obama, a Democrat, is raising the issue of high prices to promote his own policy priorities and blunt criticism from the men vying to unseat him in the November 6 election. His strategy is both politically- and policy-oriented. The president wants to advance his plans to increase renewable energy sources and reduce U.S. reliance on foreign oil.

Not to worry, we will just print more fake money with the help of Geithner and the government will get free gasoline while the rest of the nation turns into North Korea.

One thing we know for sure,
it is axiomatic that high gas prices aren’t 0bama’s fault,
because NOTHING is ever his fault.

-——Noted: Obama plans on doing nothing to bring prices back in line.-——

The ends don’t justify the means, but if this is his decision, so be it. He won’t be reelected.

“Noted: Obama plans on doing nothing to bring prices back in line.”

I believe that, it’s consistent with the Obama world view. The USA uses too much of the world’s energy, and he wants to slow us down. High gas prices fit with his “energy plan”.

It’s the best news I’ve heard in a long time. While I won’t enjoy paying, I hope the price of a gallon of gas goes to $8/gallon! At that level, independents will quit wringing their hands and worshiping Obama, and will notice their empty wallets, gas tanks, and refrigerators.

RE :”Never understood why Bush didn’t do more of this when he was in office. “We need to drill here, and drill now. We have the resources to create $1/gal gas. Democrats in congress need to put America first, not the environmental lobbyists

You were not following what GWB was doing?

Dems repeatedly filibustered energy bills in the RINO Senate so in 2007 when gas prices were rising and voters mad GWB made a deal with the devil, he signed onto a energy bill with the NEW Reid/Pelosi congress.

To get some drilling he went along with ethanol mandates and subsidies and banned incandescent light bulbs, the last going into effect 2012 and 2013. It was a monstrocity.

Remember that when you see Republican candidates make all sorts of bold promises. What crap will they sign onto to get SOMETHING to tell voters they accomplished SOMETHING?

One of the Republican groups need to bring out an ad with Obama proclaiming that energy prices needed to skyrocket.

The material is out there to bury this fool.

Pain at the pump has to overcome their inherent desire to assure themselves that they aren’t “racist”.
