Skip to comments.Gas numbers game is a loser for Obama (A majority rightfully blame Obama)
Posted on 04/05/2012 3:51:31 AM PDT by tobyhill
President Obamas poll numbers are up and the countrys unemployment figures are down but $4 gas poses a potent threat to the incumbents re-election bid, polls show.
Voters are giving Mr. Obama an emphatic thumbs down for his handling of gas prices 68 percent disapprove of his response to the problem in the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll.
The White House and Mr. Obamas re-election team are acutely aware of the political danger. The president has given seven speeches in March alone on energy and gas prices in an attempt to convince the public that there is no silver bullet solution.
The Obama campaign knows that high gas prices can sink his presidency, said Republican strategist Ron Bonjean. They are throwing the kitchen sink at this problem through advertising, campaign appearances and high-profile speeches.

They should trying being HONEST.
Sec. CHU already said that the Tyrant’s regime
SEEKS $10 a gallon gasoline.
Half way there, already.
I left a note at the pump last night. “good job Obama!”
I came back 30 minutes later with the Wife’s car and the note was gone. It’s hitting a nerve with libs.
4.05, best price I could find last night.
We can look for a fall of gasoline prices when the election is near. The Saudis will dump oil on the market and help their stooge win re-election
Yellow sticky pad and a pen. Keep it in the car and leave a note at every gas station.
The decline of the U.S. dollar is driving this more than anything else. Dumping more oil on the world market will simply make it cheaper for others, not us. In fact, the U.S. in 2011 -- for the first time in more than 60 years -- became a net exporter of refined fuel products. The stark reality is that we're becoming increasingly unable to afford our own domestically-produced fuel.
Exactly. There are plenty of adoring sheep who would happily accept any explanation by 0bama as to why he wants $9 gas in this country. In their twisted minds, if 0bama says it, it`s gospel that shall be followed.
Price of food goes up next.
I wonder if Al Sharpton will protest this.
Gold went from 1000 to 1600 an ounce under Mugabi.
The dollar has lost a third of its value.
If reelected we are toast.
They have attempted to convince the people that the law of supply and demand has been suspended, a difficult task.
“We can’t drill because it won’t help the price at the pump now” is reasoning that assumes us all to be like little kids unwilling to wait for our goodies. (OK, 30% of us are little kids unwilling to wait....).
I think the people are finally beginning to realize this is all just an attempt to dupe us, and that’s why this issue is so powerful for our side.
Everytime you pass a Gas Station the price you see is the Obama Gas Price.
Starting today, I’m leaving the same notes at the gas pumps. I drive rental cars part time three day’s a week and on an average day, I fuel at least 4 to 5 cars a day at different gasoline station’s. The notes of HOW’S THAT HOPE AN CHANGE WORKING FOR YOU will be posted starting today.
That will bring the prices down for sure! /s
There is a glut in the landlocked middle, but we still import significantly more oil than we produce ourselves. And that oil is not selling at the WTI discount.
