Obama: Gas prices 'make things harder' By: Jennifer Epstein March 17, 2012 07:02 AM EDT
With the price of gas averaging $3.83 per gallon for regular 30 cents more than a month ago President Barack Obama said he feels Americans pain at the pump but his administration is limited in its ability to lower gas prices.
What matters most to me right now is the impact that rising prices have on you, he said in his weekly address broadcast Saturday. When youve got to spend more on gas, youve got less to spend on everything else. It makes things harder.
Obama has repeatedly said there is no silver bullet to stop prices from rising and that the issue is largely beyond his administrations control. The truth is: the price of gas depends on a lot of factors that are often beyond our control. Unrest in the Middle East can tighten global oil supply. Growing nations like China or India adding cars to the road increases demand, he said.
Its easy to promise a quick fix when it comes to gas prices. There just isnt one, he said. Anyone who tells you otherwise any career politician who promises some three-point plan for two-dollar gas theyre not looking for a solution. Theyre just looking for your vote.
Obama: Gas prices make things harder
First, thank you Captain Obvious.
Second, he’ll never touch a pump again in his life. I doubt he cares.
Weren’t high gasoline prices the fault of the prior administration?
(Between the Progressive psychotics in the electorate and all the phantom voters out there, the results of the 2012 election might be in the bag for all those visceral, adolescent Democrats who think they’re superior to the rest of humanity.)
And third, his administration has been frustrating exploration and development everywhere they can.
He claimed he could reduce the cost of health care, but now he says he can’t affect the price of gasoline. Hope and change.
Hope you have some change left...
It’s not just gas prices. It’s price inflation in general.
That’s why I’m stocking up on toilet paper. Toilet paper might be worth more than the Obama/Bernanke dollar at some point. If not, toilet paper will certainly hold its value better.
The last refinery built in the USA was in 1976, how many times has the population doubled since then? Even with them murdering 54+ million Unborn.

1. you do not feel our pain dipshit since you do not pay for gasoline.
2. What you can do immediately is suspend the FEDERAL TAX on gasoline.
3. Then stop saying oil is the energy from the past, stop subsidizing Chevy Volts. stop subsidizing failing “green” energy projects
the list is endless.
WOW! My eyes have been opened finally to the genius this man really is. Hold on Einstien, you’ve got a real challenge on your hands. Well, maybe not. Since nobody has seen any records from education endeavors, who knows? I’m thinkin’, not the top of the class. Probably not even in the middle.
Lying two faced sack of crap.

Obama Blames High Gas Prices On Washington
Democrat Barack Obama on Friday blamed high gasoline prices on Washington and a political establishment that he says hasn’t stood up to oil companies, his two rivals for the presidency included.
"What matters most to me right now is the impact that rising prices have on you, he said in his weekly address broadcast Saturday. When youve got to spend more on gas, youve got less to spend on everything else. It makes things harder.
and Romney's uncaring opinion about the poor.
They both indicate there is/are something "more important" than the reality of no money, no freedom.
America's freedom is ultimately linked to our cars and our wallets.
In MY lifetime, anyway, I've had both from an early age (via work), and if I can afford to drive anyplace ... I am absolutely free.
I wonder if college kids ever say today, "Road Trip ! ? !
Hussein can’t stop gas prices from rising but he can stop ocean levels from rising ?
Has HE or HIS FAMILY cut back? How do the gas prices affect them?
This affirmative-action Princess, nobama, will never place his limp-wristed hand on a gas pump. Does the moron even have a drivers license (or a birth certificate for that matter)?
harder??? try I’m scared out of my mind and I am NOT better off now than I was 4 years ago.

The GOP has SO MUCH AMMO LIKE THIS to advertise that Obama is the hypocritical Satan and if they don't compile it ALL and use it, I'll be convinced that we are being duped by the Republican party. Everyone needs to pay close attention to how hard the GOP is willing to attack Obama. Look at what their darling, McCain, did last time - NOTHING!!! It was only Sarah that attacked him and look what has happened to her!
I bet his EPA and DOE are gearing up to fight that new refinery to be built near Pittsburgh. This could be a huge election issue when coupled with Keystone, the moritorium on drilling, and denial of operating permits for the coal industry. Energy supplies are the biggest loser for the biggest loser.
In some future debate, when Barak declares that we can’t drill our way out to lower prices (or whatever), I want the Republican candidate to look directky at him and say, “Of all the stupid things you have said, THAT is probably the stupidest!”

I’m stocking up on Vaseline, in case Obama gets reelected.

Yet another excuse for his slow “recovery”.
Baraka Obama, Global Energy Denier
We're not only spending more on gas, we are spending more on everything else. We notice gas prices because we see them posted on the street in big bold letters. But everything inside the stores has gone up at least 10% in the last year alone.
And the sheeple will all vote to re-elect this clown.

The quote ‘silver bullet’ is getting rid of this marxist chump in November.
No $h!t Sherlock ! IMHO, zero is doing it on purpose. High gas prices contribute towards a higher inflation ragte - reinstating punishment that Jimmy Carter promised the American people if he didn’t get voted out of office. Makes it harder to travel nd forces us to be more dependent on public transportation except public transportation is non-existent here !

No shirt, Shitlock!
Hussein is a muslim plant tasked with wrecking our lives.
Wasn't it just three years ago that Zero said it was Bush's fault?
This a-hole is having trouble keeping his lies straight.
“Energy prices must necessarily skyrocket higher!” Barack Obama circa 2008
Pray for America
Holy Moly! At last he is being honest. Only Washington makes American monetary policy, Only Washington prints money. Only Washington spent this nation into 16 trillion dollars($16,000,000,000,000.00) of debt. Of course Lil Barry is the CEO of that mess we call a government, so he and the rest of that bunch of traitors have to blame someone else. The other party, Big Oil, OPEC, whoever, anyone but themselves.
Only George Bush had that power! /sarc
Basically this reporterette transcribes his speech. There is no sense of criticism or research showing his past statements.
If this were Bush...
Despite claims, Democrats suggests.... Bush himself in the past has.... Republicans admit this... Some say... Voters are rightfully aiming their anger... Etc.
He can go blow that smoke up somebody else's ass....
He's not just the CEO of General Motors!
He's Captain Oblivious!
“Look at what their darling, McCain, did last time - NOTHING!!! It was only Sarah that attacked him and look what has happened to her! “
I waited and waited and waited for McCain to actually say something to get votes. 3 weeks before the election, nada, and I thought he’s waiting for the last minute so that the dems don’t have time to respond. 2 weeks before the election, same thing. 1 week before, nothing. I told my son election night, “We’ll lose.” But it was even worse because we lost both the House and the Senate as well as the Presidency.
I have actually been to a place where they have almost no toilet paper. In the bathrooms of restaurants and hotels there is a woman or man sitting behind a card table with a roll of toilet paper on it, separating the sheets into a stack. I paid $1 for 2 sheets. It is easy to figure how much that roll was worth.
“President Barack Obama said he feels Americans pain at the pump but his administration is limited in its ability to lower gas prices”
But not limited in his ability to help make them rise.
Ya know....ya know this Algae feller in the picture,
He's the spittin' image of a feller we got here in DC, goes by the name of Pond....
Pond O'Scum as I recall
How the hell would this high roller (on other people’s money) know when things get harder?
Thanks to the genius of Obamanomics one pound cans and packages are now 12 to 14 1/2 ozs. Everything is downsized in order to be compared to this lousy economic picture painted by an utter nincompoop! There has never been a sane socialist/communist and there never will be.
Re-elect this slime that oozes around the White Hut and you’ll deserve what you get: a lousy fluked up country where lying is an art.
Not only are the higher gas prices giving consumers pain at the pump, but are increasing the cost of everything delivered by truck. The prices of groceries have gone up considerably lately largely as a result of higher shipping costs. A pound of butter is selling for almost the cost of a gallon of gas and fresh produce, eggs and meat are also going up in price. Add to this the increased cost of electricity and home heating oil which just as Obama promised have skyrocketed. Also look for a decline in the tourist business as families cannot afford the cost of driving any distance or the increased air fares. Consumers are taking it in the shorts all thanks to Obama.
I wonder if he “felt our pain” the other day when he stopped in for a 50 buck LUNCH of two slabs of ribs, a chunk of briskit and fixins’?
