Gas prices have been skyrocketing with the national average approaching $4 per gallon. It’s over $4 in California. So where is President Obama? Where is his so-called concern for the people living on “Main Street not Wall Street?”
I don’t want to hear anything about how the President has very little to do with gas prices and really has no impact on fuel costs. That was never a concern when George W. Bush was president. The high gas prices were national news and all of the stories basically put blame on the President. So, the same high media-imposed standards should be applied now. Where the heck is Couric-BS (CBS) or ABCDEmocrat News? No stories about how these high gas prices impact food costs? No story about Mr. & Mrs. John Smith in Iowa who are hurting because gas prices are so darn high?
So, what is President Obama doing about this? Well, just before you ducked out for your Easter weekend, the President put any decision on the Keystone Pipeline project on hold (you guessed it) until after the November elections.
Remember when He and his team proudly boasted that $5 a gallon gasoline prices would be good for the country?! From El Rushbo’s site…
OBAMA 2008: I think that I would have preferred a gradual adjustment. The fact that, eh, this is such a shock to American pocketbooks is not a good thing. Uh, but if we take some steps right now to, uh, help people make the adjustment, f-first of all, by putting more money into their pockets, but also by encouraging the market to adapt to these new circumstances more quickly, particularly US automakers… [RUSH LIMBAUGH:]”So we can go back and we can find all the stories of rising gas prices during Bush and how you were angry, how you were enraged. And we can find stories of gas prices going up in the last three years, and it wasn’t a big deal to you. Rising gas prices aren’t as bad as you think. “Rising Gas Prices Aren’t a Big Concern for Voters.” Losing your job? That’s more family time! That’s more time for you to explore your hobby!”
Obama claimed it would make us all focus more on the green energy fraud. We’d all be riding our bikes to work or driving our new solar powered cars or something.
This one is on Obama. So, where is the news?
