High Gas Prices Are Good Now?
Understand The Mindset Of Politicians
Somehow I know hypocrisy when I see it. I also understand the mindset these days of politicians, especially Barack Obama. High gas prices were an issue back in 2006 when the Democratic Party took control of both houses of Congress during the Bush administration. That same Congress maintained control of both the House and the Senate until January of 2011 when a semblance of balance was restored. Back in 2006 the wise sages were screaming bloody murder about how high gas prices had escalated under George W. Bush. They indeed had risen but not quite like we have seen them rise lately. A 113 percent increase is just that. Now according to Obama there is nothing he can do about it? Back on the campaign trail in '08 he used the prices at the time as a weapon. Do you see the hypocrisy in any of this?
Lets watch the video before we proceed on.
"A new energy strategy to bring down the price of gas..." Really Nancy? "I know how bad people are hurting..." Really Barack? So what was done by that group of blabber mouths from 2006 through 2008 to right the situation? Not a thing other to rant at Big Oil. What was done by this same group between 2008 and 2010? It's the same answer. Was the refinery approval process sped up? The lack of sufficient refineries is a problem and it could be fixed. No, it has been made more complex and burdensome. Since 2008 when Obama assumed office things didn't "change" for the better regarding gas prices. Those of us who have to actually pay for our fuel can attest to that. The things that could have been done and should have been done have not been done. The reason they haven't been done is because Obama does not want gas prices to go down. High gas prices further Obama's agenda of chasing the whimsical "green" agenda. He feels your pain?
Our "Jobs President" knows how to spin a tale. This from the a speech on the campaign trail in 2008 from Obama, "I met a guy who couldn't go on a job search who lost his job. Couldn't go on a job search because of the high price of gas..." This guy always seems to have met someone who fits his agenda it seems. Then the teacher on the Indian Reservation who had to quit her job because she couldn't afford fuel for her car. There are always a million stories in the naked city now aren't there. I wonder how those two people are now fairing since he has made it far worse than it was rather than his promise that under his administration gas prices would go down. Are you still ignoring the hypocrisy in this whole situation?
What He Said Versus Where We Went
Gas prices were averaging $1.87 a gallon when Obama took office. Where are they now? Been to the pump lately? How comfortable was that experience? How's that hopey changey thing going for you? He did say that his administration was going to lower the price of a commodity we rely on but his actions have had the opposite effect. So there isn't anything he can do about but blame the Bush administration which is an all too familiar mantra. None of what we are seeing is Bush's fault Mr President. It lies squarely on your shoulders and you don't seem to want to shoulder the load.
Notice how quiet those same Democrat blabber mouths are now being quiet as church mice? The shoe is suddenly on the other foot and they're too busy wiping the egg off of their faces. But this is all Bush's fault even though the Dems controlled both houses of Congress from 2006 through the end of 2010. Do you know a hypocrite when you see one? Do you recognize corrupt party politics when it stares you in the face? Do you recognize that when their lips are moving what to expect? Have you heard that his Energy Secretary has a goal of elevating gas prices to the 8 to 9 dollar range like in "Europe?" This isn't Europe and looking at the present state of affairs in Europe it doesn't need to be. How do those projected gas prices grasp you?
Anybody Home? Hello?
So where is the Lame Stream Media who was howling about gas prices and beating Bush up constantly about the subject? Silence seems to now be golden since their "Anointed One" is at the helm. Where is the same outrage that was being expressed when gas prices were even less than they are now? Actually take a hard look at something. Gas prices were $1.87 a gallon when Obama was inaugurated. What does that tell you? It tells me that Bush "did something" about it rather than place the blame on someone else.
Now what we are hearing is that high gas prices are good for us and the economy? Really? Just eat your peas and shut up about it already seems to be their words of wisdom. Why? Because Obama is now having to face the heat? I see. Lower gas prices were a Democratic Party platform to get elected or re-elected but we just need to ignore the fact that they did nothing about it then and continue to exacerbate the whole thing under the lack of leadership of Barak Hussein Obama
Well folks I recognize hypocrisy when I see it and I'm seeing it all the time now. "Gas prices, even at over $4 a gallon can be a good thing?" Someone explain to me how that can be since it usually affects the prices of everything else we might put our hands on? I reckon that same talking head will tell us how excellent things are when they hit the $8 dollar mark this administration strives for. You think your budget is going to hell in a hand basket now, you just wait. Obama may be right. There is maybe nothing Obama can do about it but make them continue to escalate. He is doing a fine job of accomplishing that. Aren't you just super optimistic that the rising prices are such a blessing?
Watch the video below and have a nice day. The problem identified there isn't Bush's fault.
Just do this: Remember In November!
