Obama and the Giant Oil Prices

by Little Miss Attila on April 26, 2011

Why people are probably right to blame the President for “the pain at the pump.”

UPDATE: The Administration is going to solve the problem by raising taxes on the oil companies, and increasing their operating costs. Then it will ask them very sweetly to please not pass those additional costs onto the consumer, please.

Is there anyone in Obama’s inner circle who knows something about economics?

Gas prices are up 25% since the Republicans took over the House in January.

I think America knows who to blame.

And indeed, the Republicans’ lead in Righty Rasmussen’s Generic Congressional Ballot is down to 2 points, the lowest its been in over a year and a half.

I think the wingnuts forgot that when Americans give some power to a party it also hold it responsible…and all this whiny finger pointing instead of taking responsibility is starting to take its toll.

Generic Democrats are tied with Charles Manson and followers, sex partners concealing incurable diseases, and
serial killers now in the voters minds. Is the Left now saying that American voters are so stupid that they will believe that
the Republicans can correct 4 years of the Democrat’s rats nest of the most destructive policies in Western history in three months?
Those cocksuckers—always thinking so little about Americans!
Voters are saying that the Republicans have to start hitting hard every day. If they don’t they will get shown the door. But voters won’t put Leftist Democrats in their place. Voters saw the change Democrats bring to the table–the same old failed policies of tax and spend they have always been pushing. Nancy P’s $5 Trillion binge and puke will take a long time to erase. Never has so much [money] been used to do so little with such lasting
detrimental consequences.

United States Secretary of Energy, Dr. Steven ( “Fuck”) Chu–

“Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe,” Mr. Chu, who directs the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal in December 2008 {prior to accepting the Cabinet position}. Gas prices are $8 or mre currently. Of course the Euros has gone on record about ending private auto ownership by the end of the decade. Other concerns?” But the next administration will face a range of obstacles on the energy front, from plummeting oil prices and a declining economy to potential rifts among Mr. Obama’s own advisers.” What a buch of wild-eyed, crazy, out-of-touch, shit-eating, crackpots!

More Chu wisdom? “Coal is My Worst Nightmare.” http://blogs.wsj.com/environmentalcapital/2008/12/11/steven-chu-coal-is-my-worst-nightmare/
His solution? Biofuels. Exactly what has been sweeping through the world faster than the black plague, pricing food out of the mouths of the world’s poor. Someone should send these kooks back under the university rocks they came from. No wonder they have to scour their roster to find one that actually owned a car in their lives, much less now. Or who ever held a real job.

Yes, because the party that controls only 1/3 of the political branches of gov’t is to blame.

The 2/3 have no responsibility whatsoever.

Exactly what policies has the House, by itself without the help of the Democratic Senate and Democratic President, enacted that could have caused the price increase, ponce?

Darrell using profanity to make his point, thats new. Ponce you must not annoy him to that extent, he comes from a good family, and lets keep him as a worthy opponent. Lets not get him to reach the bottom of the barrel.
