Christine O'Donnell's BET: CALLS OUT Barack Obama on "Lie Du Jour" on Gas Prices
Tea Party Tribune ^ | March 14, 2012 | Christine O'Donnell

Obama’s Lie du Jour: There is nothing he can do, other than drill, to lower gas prices – LIE!

by Christine O’Donnell on Wednesday, March 14, 2012 at 3:11p

If I were a betting woman, I’d make the following bet with President Obama – and if any Dem takes the wager, I’ll become a betting woman! In a childish, unpresidential tone, President Obama mocked Republicans saying we have a three point plan for bringing down gas prices; drill, drill, drill.

I’m challenging Pres. Obama or Any Democrat with the guts to take this wager…

If I can come up with a three point plan for lowering gas prices that does not even mention drilling, you (the Democrat) have to make a maximum contribution to the candidate of my choice. If I can’t come up with such a plan, I will personally give a maximum contribution to the campaign of your choice.

Why would I risk having to contribute to Debbie Wasserman or Nancy Pelosi’s Reelection?!

Well, any poker player knows the answer… I have a strong hand. I know I can come up with a three point plan for lowering gas prices that does not mention the word “drill”. I can come up with a plan that does not have anything to do with the economically sound move of drilling our own national resources … a move that would also strengthen our national security. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist getting that in there!)So here’s my plan:OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) sets oil prices based on the U.S. dollar. Oil is traded in that currency as well. As our currency is devalued, the price of oil goes up. Economics 101 tells us what to do:

1.Cut government spending… drastically

2.Start paying down the debt and don’t raise the debt ceiling, at least not without serious measures to tackle the debt.

3.Balance the budget and reduce the deficit immediately. Bottom-line: Serious steps towards economic stability will strengthen the dollar. When the dollar grows stronger, gas prices will go down!!!

Pres. Obama is either flat out lying when he says there is nothing he can do to lower gas prices other than drilling, or he doesn’t understand how gas prices are set or how our economy works. The election may have made Barack Obama President, but it didn’t make him Presidential. What can you do with this tid-bit of knowledge? YOU can interject this truth into the course of public debate. Remind people that President Obama is directly to blame for sky rocketing gas prices because he has destroyed the value of the dollar!! Middle class Americans pay the price for Obama’s failed policies… literally.

1.Tweet, Facebook and call out the Democrats on their lie! This administration destroyed the value of our dollar and that is directly to blame for rising gas prices. And you and I foot the bill for their deception every time we fill up our cars.

2.Do we have any economic junkies among us? Want to crunch some numbers to see by how much we’d need to strengthen the dollar in order to get gas prices back under $3? Want to chart the decline of the dollar with the rise of gas prices? I’d love to hear what you’ve come up with.

3.Call into talk radio shows, write a letter to the editor… remind voters that President Obama is lying when he says there is nothing he can do about gas prices other than drill! Remind the voters that as President Obama destroys our economy, the dollar is weakened and oil prices go up.

Together, you and I can start to unite around one effort… making sure President Obama is a one term president! God Bless,-Christine O’Donnell

Christine O’Donnell used to be awesome, but she doesn’t agree with the majority here on FR, so she is evil and must be disdained. (off sarcasm)

Yes, now we must hate her - along with about 100 others who used to be great but now we must hate.

Should read Jansen’s. Doesn’t matter, I don’t think she can read anyway.

Yep - all the feigned "purism" has warped a bunch of minds that I used to admire. They probably throw away their cars and buy new ones if a brake light fails because the car isn't "prefect" any longer.

Those comments are immature. A person can wear Tea Party labels all day long, but that doesn’t mean a lot.

What has Christine O’Donnell done as the leading figure to advance Tea Party principles since?

Others judge her accordingly. Convince these others of her TP virtue might win over some, but not by your comments as shown.

OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) sets oil prices

they haven't set the price in years....they can influence price by output or lack thereof.

One could ask anyone the same. What has Sir Napsalot done to advance Tea Party principles since?

One thing I will say for COD: she has worked to take on the George Soros funded CREW, and she apparently has a PAC that will fund conservative candidates for Congress in 2012, like SarahPAC.

Certainly she has a smaller budget than Sarah’s PAC but whatever it is, it’ll be for opponents of Democrat Obama operatives.

I am of the mind that those of us who are Tea Partiers don’t all think alike. I have no problem that some of my fellow TPers support Newt, others Santorum, some Paul and some Mitt. If we all thought alike, it’d be a pretty dull movement, wouldn’t it? Of course, we do agree on one thing: Obama must be the loser next November.

WHO CARES? Let's win the White House and the US Senate. We need everyone, all hands on deck. If someone has something to add to the push against Obama, let 'em do it.

We're going to face $1 billion in smears from the Obama team. Obama spent 3/4's of a billion dollars in 2008 He has the media on his side. He is the incumbent President.

There's plenty of work to go around.

So if you want to beat up on Christine starting in January 2013, that's your right. But I suggest that maybe we put it on the shelf until we get rid of Obama.

Can we just say we'll put Christine on double secret probation until January 2013? If she is part of the solution between now and November 2012, so be it.

Let me just invite you to make sure that you are also part of the solution.

“Convince these others of her TP virtue might win over some, but not by your comments as shown.”

I’m not trying to convince you or anyone else of anything. My comment was an observation regarding the fickleness I see here whereby politicians, commentators, etc., are declared heroes, then zeroes/RINOS, then heroes again, ad infinitum, based on whether or not the FR “critic” happens to agree with their position on a particular issue on a particular day.

Bingo.

My goal is to fire Obama. Frankly, I think our entire field of Republicans is flawed. But all of them—even the sometimes silly Ron Paul—are going to be better Presidents than Barack Hussein Obama (mmm mmm mmm).

It used to be ok just listen to some one, or read opinion articles from some one, if they have all the right things to say.

But I am of the same mind as #4 Dr. Sivana, COD’s not ‘part of the solution’.

Defeat Obama is no longer my goal, I won’t vote Romney just so he ‘can (maybe)’ beat Obama. Sorry.
