It's George Bush's fault, or Halliburton's, or the greedy oil companies, or the gouging suppliers, or the oil sheiks, or the GOP Congress which refuses to pass modern energy legislation and cap and trade, or the gas guzzlers Americans are allowed to own, or... (fill in the blank)
But Obama's fault? No way!!
I keep hearing Conservatives and Republicans ranting about how this is the Obama’s fault, just like it was Bush’s fault to the Libs, yet nobody seems willing to provide a clear, honest answer on why gas prices are at a historic high. Is it the price per barrel of oil? Perhaps war, or reduction in oil refineries? It seems like everyone is quick to bash their political enemies without a shred of facts or evidence and doing so makes us sound like foolish libtard children.
If we want prices to go down we need to understand why. Playing blame game politics is a distraction and that plays perfectly into the status quo.
Libtards: “It’s the greedy oil companies. Kill them all and nationalize oil companies!”
Republicans and Conservatives: “It’s Obama’s fault. He’s a socialist Kenyan and this is his plan to destroy America.”
If Obama and his policies are to blame, which ones? I understand that this is likely a complex issue, but it’s something on the mind of everyone and we need some FACTS. If he and his policies are to blame, its important to know which ones so that we can effectively communicate that message.
