Obama: 'Rising gas prices are not my fault'
Associated Press ^ | 2/25/12

Posted on 02/26/2012 10:15:16 AM PST by Justaham

President Barack Obama has defended his energy strategy claiming there is no easy answer to the problem of rising gas prices. 'We know there's no silver bullet that will bring down gas prices or reduce our dependence on foreign oil overnight,' Obama said on Saturday in his weekly radio and Internet address dismissing Republican solutions as little more than gimmicks.

'But what we can do is get our priorities straight and make a sustained, serious effort to tackle this problem.'

Barry can’t help himself. He’s just a natural born liar. I guess it’s Bush’s fault again, as usual.

We know the president has nothing to do with the price of oil...just do not take credit when the price goes down.

Obama’s in luck - the New York Times and Washington Post and all the alphabet networks will buy any excuse he puts out... Too bad the press has thrown away their credibility ... might of worked for him.

Not true...he’d take responsibility if the prices went way down.

I have never seen anyone as blindly arrogant as this scumbag.

I got news for this fool, he is responsible, but his cronies are so busy stroking his ego that he just goes on making a fool of himself.

His green projects have gone bankrupt, Keystone a no-go, no drilling, and the economy is a major mess all in his first three years. Outside of Carterr there has never been as big a failure as this socialist moron.

Obama said Republicans have one answer to the oil pinch: drill.

Stupid Republicans!

They act like you can just drill more wells to increase the supply!

We have to invest hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars to invent making oil from pond scum.

Then hundreds of billions MORE to build the hundreds of plants that would make the stuff.

The gas from that should only cost $10 - $12 a gallon. Thats pretty competitive on the European market!

There is NO NEED to pump oil out of the ground. That gas would only cost about $2 a gallon and would confuse the global markets.

Newt presented a convincing argument on Saturday that not only are the gas prices Obama’s fault but it is deliberate:

Obama: 'Rising gas prices are not my fault'

But you and your Dim predecessors in the White House are significantly at fault for rising crude oil prices. See if you can find a connection to rising gasoline prices.

'We know there's no silver bullet that will bring down gas prices or reduce our dependence on foreign oil overnight,' Obama said.

So Mr. _resident, when you said on the campaign trail in 2008 that all we needed to do was inflate our tires, were you lying or just ignorant?

A true, Ivy-league-educated idiot.

You certainly will not see the state-run media showing this kind of stuff on the nightly news. That is the sad part of this entire story. If the situation were reversed, and the “R” candidate was defending himself against high gas prices, the lame-stream media would be showing this kind of stuff every night on the news. The MEDIA is our second biggest enemy next to the OBAMA administration.

You can bet that if the price goes down one-tenth of a cent he'll be the first to take credit for that.

Rising gas prices aren’t Obama’s fault but rising gas prices were Bush’s fault when he was president. How does that work?

The parasites in the swamp have been making grand speeches and huge promises to never be held hostage to oil again and to become energy dependent.
This was back in 76 and cars got 25 miles a gallon back then.

Fast forward 35 years. We still have not been back to the moon and cars get about 35 MPG if lucky.

America does not even sell the great mileage cars that are produced and sold in Europe,

How many permits for drilling in the Gulf were issued by Energy Sec. Salazar for in the two years following the BP blowout, you lying SOB?

It’s hard to rewrite history when these major failures are still fresh in everyone’s minds, except for the welfare and university parasites who’d support Satan, were he giving them their welfare checks and grants for worthless projects.

Refine and use the unemployed for fuel, which can be sold subsidized and cheap to the bipartisan political class recipients of government incomes. Solves the population problem and all (see hyper-sensitivities to peasants’ lack of political correctness and stylishness).

Lets see—
1. Inept handling of Gulf oil spill.
2. Ban on Drilling in gulf—with limited permits.
3. Ban on coastal drilling for much of USA.
4. Ban on Permits for much of Alaska.
5. Inept handling of Iran—causing oil price spike.
6. Inept handling of Russian policy.
7. Personally banning pipeline that could have helped with
Jobs and the Unions.
I think its his fault—directly or indirectly.

Sorry but I spent 8 years sending out articles by economists and those in the oil industry showing how George W and no president has anything to do with the price of oil. But as I said, then when the price goes down, they cannot take credit for it either.

Just got this from a friend.

New stamp

NOW THIS IS FUNNY - I DON'T CARE WHO YOU ARE.

The Postal Services created a stamp with a picture of President Obama on it.

The Postal Service noticed that the stamp was not sticking to envelopes.

This enraged the President, who demanded a full investigation.

After a month of testing and $1.73 million in congressional spending, a special Presidential commission presented the following findings:

1.The stamp is in perfect order.

2. There is nothing wrong with the glue.

3. People are spitting on the wrong side
