Desperate times call for desperate measures, and Obama has decided he is losing the arguement about gas prices and American energy production.
“So do not tell me that we’re not drilling. We’re drilling all over this country. There are a few spots we’re not drilling. We’re not drilling in the national mall. We’re not drilling at your house. “
I love how politicians being chaufered around on the tax payer dime have time for drilling jokes while the rest of us across this country are paying for our own gas at nearly $4 a gallon.
I could name a few places you aren’t drilling Mr. President. I could also name some recent decisions you have made that have contributed to the high gas prices, and the fact that your secretary of energy has said he wants European prices for Americans…
But Obama doesn’t really care about the gas prices. He cares about getting reelected, and his people are telling him that his liberal policies are a losing issue with the American people.
Though President Obama’s philosophy hasn’t changed, he’s realized once again that his rhetoric must. This guy will say anthing to get reelected.
Just a couple months ago he was quoted as saying stuff like this.
You know we can?t just drill our way to lower gas prices.
But now he’s telling us we are drilling everywhere but our backyard and national monuments.
Maybe if his actions followed his rhetoric… had he backed the Keystone pipeline, encouraged drilling in the gulf, opened up ANWR, or made it easier to aquire permits on federal lands, I’d believe him. This president has shown he is absolutely unsympathetic to the American voters on issue after issue. 2012 cannot come soon enough.
