Obama: Republicans are “licking their chops” at rising gas prices

I gotta be honest, I’m not sure if I can take eight more months of Obama’s bullcrap, let alone four more years.



This President does everything in his power to promote higher gas prices, then he has the nerve to go out on the stump and pretend he feels our pain when prices at the pump predictably shoot up. He mocks the notion of drilling for oil as part of a plan to reduce energy costs (gee, what a crazy concept), meanwhile he proudly continues sinking billions of dollars into phony green “energy” outfits like Solyndra and Ener1 even as they go bankrupt one after another. Just incredible.

He lied in his explanation when he said that he opened 75% of the oil drilling areas in the US. He casually forgot/lied and didn’t mention that he closed both the east and west coast drilling areas opened by Bush and the Gulf of Mexico and refuses to open the Keystone Pipeline. I would be willing to bet that he changes all of this policy just before the election so he gets re-elected. God help US if he wins!

LIAR!!!!!! YOU need gas prices need to go up so that green energy would become more practical. Green energy people are up front about that idea!

YOU are the one who stopped the Keystone Pipeline.

YOU are the one who blocks drilling.

And YES, drilling more IS a plan.

His “Lead Story” comment is a LIE “Republicans Are Licking Their Chops”, check his sources. Listening to Roger Hedgecock show yesterday, Roger revealed the sources of his comments and they are so OUT OF CONTEXT, Obama should be ashamed of himself. Don’t let his comment of “American people are not stupid”, come to life. Check his comments, daily. There are always two sides to every story, one seems right until the other is presented. That’s biblical!

This guy doesn’t understand (or doesn’t WANT to understand) supply side economics. The more there is of a product, the cheaper that product is.

Of course, that also applies to our dollar as well – which is partially to blame for the high prices of everything.

If he manages to steal the election, it will be a bad, bad situation for the next decade.

GAS PRICES, Currency, Commodities, Food Prices, Inflation, Interest Rates, Income Taxes, the Stock Market AND THE JOB MARKET are being MANIPULATED by these power-mongers.

INTENTIONALLY.

CALCULATEDLY.

Think about it.

If Newt can change things with the adjustments he plans to make,

and If Reagan could change things from Jimmy Carter’s failed policies when he did,

THEN THIS PRESIDENT AND HIS CRONIES ARE INTENTIONALLY MAKING OUR LIVES MISERABLE TO ACHIEVE THEIR OWN GOALS.

Ask anyone over 50. We well remember Communism in Russia. Cuba. Red China. North Korea.

SOCIALISM, Marxism, Fascism, totalitarianism is always an OLIGARCHY – an elites-beneficial system.

STEAK, VODKA, LIMOUSINES, FREE GAS, chauffeurs for the PROLETARIAT, IN crowd, the party leaders, elected elite.

BEANS, CABBAGE, BREAD, GAS LINES for the BOURGEOISIE, drones, workers, taxpayers, f**ls.

Obama tries a pre-emptive strike to undercut republicans on a real issue. Obama is the one politicizing all issues so that no matter what a republican nominee says he can say, that they are politicizing it. So if your opposing political party cannot bring up valid, obvious, issues in a debate then what is left to talk about? 1.Obama care is unconstitutional and is attack at religious and civil liberties. Obama reply: You do not want to protect women and you are just playing politics. 2. Fast and furious was a complete debacle, your justice department is withholding evidence and Holder has lied multiple times under oath. Obama reply: You are racist and only making this issue because Holder is black. 3. The economy is in shambles and you have not lived up to a single one of your economic promises, which you said you would not run for a… Read more »

I have a feeling, on election night, O is going to find out exactly how popular his policies have been.

And watch how fast many of the Clinton Dems will sweep him under the rug when he loses.
He’s going to feel as lonely as Carter in 1980.

So, here is another Brenda Lee song, suitable for singing to himself in his upcoming wilderness years: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnApJcGBDFY

The Guy has no shame at all. He is hoping that the dumb ass people his party have created over the past couple of decades don’t get it. This was the plan all along. Make the population stupid and then he can say this rediculous crap and no one know the difference.

When he says this BS I want to take a hammer and crack it over my head. I don’t think there is a drug out there that could cure my misery over this faux president. The Manchurian Candidate.

Isn’t there a broader concern here with Obama though? Nearly all scientists agree that climate change is real. SCIENTISTS, as in nerds who actually listened in school and thus aren’t stupid.

Besides how is rising gas prices (or falling gas prices) the president’s fault? Iran has no blame? The demand from China, India, other nations has no blame? Israel? Hasn’t Oil production is up in this country (albeit not on federal lands, but have increased on state and private land) and the president has increased fuel standards for automobiles so we use less oil. Is that not a good step in the right direction? at some point we will need a more modern energy plan, which means getting off oil.

Real Scientist, those not paid by Al Gore Inc., have debunked the global warming myth. Moreover, there were intentional errors in the Gore studies.

The fact is – our biosphere is a chaotic self-correcting system which has periodic warm/cold cycles that produce corrective changes in the earth’s system.

A build-up of CO2 causes an increase of plant growth on the earth to produce more oxygen to offset the build-up. Satellite photos show this is happening.

Even the Gulf of Mexico oil spill (oil occasionally spills naturally from the ocean floor) was offset by the presence of bacteria that eat and neutralize the oil.

Records show there were warmer periods than we are now experiencing in an earlier period.

Let’s not permit the harvesting of natural resources, instead we can “hope” that the ME doesn’t explode into a radioactive cloud which would finally “change” the way we live from a mobile society to one that looks like something out of movie “Demolition Man”. There are some choice quotes from that movie that always apply when this insert explitive here moves his lips.

EXCLUSIVE: New Obama 2012 Leaked Strategy Memo

teacher’s unions to obama: when discussing the deficit, don’t talk about numbers or math:

“an emphasis on numbers” stifles the creativity of math students, who should instead be taught to decry the patriarchal influences of the base-ten system through interpretive dance and multicultural free-verse poetry.

I agree, its intentional. And, forturnately for us, he is somewhat inept, or he would’ve gotten even further (fast & furious failure, solyndra out in the open, 2010 midterms, etc.). Which really shows how dangerous the strategy is. Its designed to be effective in the hands of halfwits, which works because destruction is so much easier than construction–the triumph of leftist nihlism is usually not as far away as it seems.

As Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation from extinction…”

I agree with the feeling there. But I think about the military guys, the Secret Service guys, and the guards and caretakers of the place. They have to be there all the time. I’m guessing a lot of them aren’t fans of Obama.

Man throws rocks through all of the windows in town.

Window shops have to buy glass at a higher price that costs the owners more.

Man who threw rocks gets caught, and is mad that the other side is holding him accountable.

Now is upset that the jury may convict him of the mayhem he caused.

And now he is whining that it is all his predecessors fault.

What is next, change the subject to contraceptives?

Pathetic, especially that the news media in complicit with this.
