Skip to comments.Obama To Address Soaring Gas Prices [Oh Joy! Another speech!]
Posted on 02/22/2012 5:08:50 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
President Barack Obama will deliver a speech on energy and rising gas prices Thursday at the University of Miami, FOX News Channel reported.
White House officials told FOX the president will lay out an "all of the above" approach to the nation's energy security that he has previously outlined and will tout the fact that domestic oil production has risen on his watch while imports have decreased.
Gas prices have continued to climb in recent months, surpassing $4 per gallon in some areas.

Even the drooling sycophants in the media ought to realize it takes time to get rigs in place and operational once the government paper work is done.
Obama may as well take credit for Pixar's success, too, since they've made a ton of money since he was put into power. Except he had NOTHING TO DO WITH THEIR SUCCESS.
INFLATE YO TIRES
Bet the price will jump 10 cents after he finishes runnin his mouth....
Obama and his party want higher gas prices so why the speech?
Republicans are to blame.
And the media will proudly lie about this from now until election.
It’s George Bush’s fault.
Should be some good stock buying opportunities after he’s done. It always tanks when he flaps his yapper.
“INFLATE YO TIRES”
Exactly! GHW Bush got destroyed for being disconnected from the average person. Obama is all of that. I expect his speech to be alternately scolding and condescending.
“We can’t consume all of the world’s oil.”
“Inflate your tires.”
“We use more than our share, we must conserve.”
“Buy a Volt.”
The only thing I hate more than Obama is the MSM.
And once he’s addressed it, he can put a stamp on it, and mail it to somebody who actually cares what he thinks...
“Obama and his party want higher gas prices so why the speech?”
All the GOP has to do Friday morning is start running the “gas prices necessarily going up speech” over and over again. Hammer it home.
Hell no, Laz...Bush's Fault!
Well, good! I hope he gives those naughty gas prices a stern talkin' to.
What a charade.
Libs and RATS and the whores in Big Media (but I repeat myself) accused President Bush of manipulating gas prices heading into the 2008 election. As we all know, RATS always accuse Republicans of engaging in the very acts they themselves engage in. We've all seen how the stock market magically goes up every time Urkel gets another trillion dollars to spend so why should we be surprised if gas prices suddenly start falling after a run up?
And, again magically, right before the election. My guess is gas will be back down around 3.50 a gallon come November and President Clouseau will run around crowing (is that racist?) about how he prevented gas prices from going to ten dollars a gallon or some such b.s.
I wanted the Keystone pipeline, Republicans blocked it
My administration has opened up more oil fields than any other in history, Republicans are blocking the permit process
I wanted to lower the federal tax on gas taxes, Republicans have blocked that
My administration is trying to fund alternative energy business, Republicans are blocking the funding
I want you to beleive everything thing I am saying today, it is not my fault it is the fault of the Republicans
Quick, short your stocks now! Almost every time the current President opens his mouth on a public policy speech every stock trader runs for the hills....
Even if I knew without a doubt that Obama knew what he was talking about, I wouldn’t believe a word that comes out of his lying mouth.
“Hell no, Laz...Bush’s Fault”
I am pretty sure it will be Jeb Bush’s fault as this speech will take place in Florida.
Might as well blame a Bush.
It’s the eeeevulll oil companies. We need steal their oil and nationalize it.
“Blah-blah-blah...alternative energy...blah-blah-blah...green...blah-blah-blah...buy a Volt...blah-blah-blah...”
Democrats favorite talking point on drilling
It takes years to get the Oil online
Yet like Nazi Germany Obama will take credit for Oil Permits done under Bush.
If we had a PRESS they would ask what Oil Permits YOU SIGNED that are online.
I’m going out to check my tires right now!! Thank God there’s a real solution like this.
What Obama Administration idjit was it that claimed higher gas prices was the sign of an improving economy?
These will be the Bingo phrases for this “speech”:
GOP caused me to cancel, er, put on hold for review the Keystone Pipeline.
Production is up in my administration (not on US lands though).
We need to punish renegade oil companies that gouge workers.
I have expedited areas for leasing (off off shore Brazil but not here.)
I will provide oil from the strategic reserve to combat high prices (and charge the 10% replenishment fee for any company stupid to follow this ploy).
It won’t be much longer before they’re pointing fingers at “price-gougers,” and hinting of price controls.
No, that excuse was used when Bush the “oilman” was President.
Now that Obama is President, high gas prices are a sign of a “rebounding economy.”
Poor Obama: He has to fly down to Miami to give this speech telling us to save fuel and burning a thousand gallons in Air Force One to do it.
Does this phuck ever stay home?
It was Idi Obama hisself that claimed higher gas prices are an indicator of an improving economy.
And if you don't figure in gas prices and food prices, there is no inflation either.
"Our work won't be done until gas prices reach $10 per gallon. You proles still have too much freedom to move around. We intend to focus like a laser on getting from $4 to $10."
What’s he up to now? Trying to come across as “Engineer-in-Chief”?
I'd hazard a guess that windmills account for a far higher toll on birds, but no mention was made of that, even when the Feds were asked.
My guess is that the Dems are trying to raise oil prices, through domestic policy, through interference in North Africa (making Iran a more necessary source for Europe), the Middle East, and interference in central Africa as well. Supporting the Mexican Drug Cartels (Fast and Furious, money laundering by the DEA, etc) only keeps things destabilized there (another source of imported oil), and the blocking of the Keystone Pipeline makes imports from Canada more difficult.
When the (refinery bid) price gets high enough, partly due to domestic policy, and partly due to geopolitical situations this administration has helped create, they will carp about "greedy Big Oil" and push for nationalizing oil production. They have already expressed a desire to do so.
Anyone who is not paying attention to the industry might be fool enough to buy in.
“Obama and his party want higher gas prices so why the speech?”
We have quotes by HIM AND HIS PEOPLE clearly stating this, with the words clearly coming out of their cake-holes. There is NO SPIN AVAILABLE to counter this, nor is there any way available to inoculate the public against it (although this is obviously the purpose of the speech). Not even the finest spin doctors/liars of this administration can make these words go away.
I had better see and hear these quotes 500 times on TV and print before November.
Good summary of the dim talking points. One of our problems is that the dims are good soldiers and stick to the script. The GOP just flails around in response. No excuse for Boehner and McConell not having their troops on the same page yet every sunday we see GOPers freelancing on TV. If we lose in November it will be because those fools lost the plot and let barry off the hook.
English capitalization rules require that the first letter of a sentence be capitalized. Please try harder in the future.

FRiend, you are right. But unfortunately we have been through this before. This reminds me of Rev. Wright, Bill Ayers, Rezko, and all the other barry trash. If the GOP does not carpet bomb the message that high oil prices are what barry wants most people will never hear about it because the MSM is in barry’s shorts.
Oh goody! Another speech! That should help keep more money in my pocket instead of putting it in my tank.
This ought to be good..
Except when vacationing or golfing, Obama only travels to “swing” states.
I wonder how he’s going to sell “The enviromental lobby will go berserk against me if I drill for oil and gas. For that reason we will continue our foreign oil dependence as long as I am President, resulting high gas prices notwithstanding” to the public?
Best laugh of my day!
Your post makes complete sense. Therefore we already know the truth will once more be a casualty in the world according to liberals.
Save gas? OK, Barry, try this:
Get rid of the ethanol and get rid of the crappy winter blend. That should be good for an across the board 10% improvement.
