According to the Weekly Standard, gas prices have risen 67% since Obama became the imperial leader.
Mark Hemingway writes that “this is the President who told us “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.”
This is the President that appointed a Secretary of the Interior that famously said he didn’t mind if gas hit $10 a gallon.
This is the President whose administration secretly urged him to bypass needed Congressional approval to create as many at 17 national monuments throughout the west, effectively closing off all that land to energy exploration forever.
This is the President who has illegally tried to illegally enforce an offshore drilling ban.”
But here is where Mark misses the point: “How much higher is gas going to go before the Administration takes a long hard look at what its doing to send gas prices through the roof?”
News flash, Mr. Hemingway: This regime knows what it’s doing to raise the price of gas and heating oil. It’s their plan to make prices go high and higher. We all know it and all your links provide proof of it. Obama told us as a candidate that we would see prices go through the roof with his cap and trade scheme. His transportation secretary has told us that they were going to “coerce” us out of our cars and into government transportation.
Make no mistake: THIS IS ALL PLANNED! This regime knows what it’s doing and how it’s doing it. It was Obama’s budget that calls for cutting out subsidies to heat the homes of the poorer among us. And where are those poverty pimps – Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton – on that? Not a word. Not a whisper. No outrage at all.
Where is the outrage at 67% higher gas prices? Have we all become a nation that lays down and accepts this because we’ve been told that “this is how it’s going to be forever?” Get used to 9% unemployment and $5/gallon gas because they tell us to?
Not me. Not you. And not ever!
