Obama’s Solution to the High Gas Crisis- Put Air in Your Tires! Brilliant
Current mood: cynical

This really blows my mind and I want every freaking Libertard to understand this. So, LISTEN UP! Democrats do not want to drill for oil. PERIOD! You get "the war is lost" Senator Harry Reid and "you're my bitch" Speaker Pelosi ramrod Congress to a standstill. For the past several weeks, President Bush is putting the heat on Congress to get approval to start drilling on the outer continental shelf. Senator Reid killed the debate and Pelosi gave a statement:
"The President knows, as his own Administration has stated, that the impact of any new drilling will be insignificant - promising savings of only pennies per gallon many years down the road. Americans know that thanks to the two oilmen in the White House, consumers are now paying $4 a gallon for gas. But what Americans should realize is that what the President is calling for is drilling as close as three miles off of America's pristine beaches and in other protected areas."
"The President has failed in his economic policy, and now he wants to say, 'but for drilling in protected areas offshore, our economy would be thriving and the price of gas would be lower.' That hoax is unworthy of the serious debate we must have to relieve the pain of consumers at the pump and to promote energy independence."
"Today, the New Direction Congress will vote on legislation to bring down gas prices by taking crucial steps to curb excessive speculation in the energy futures market. The President himself could lower prices by drawing down a small portion of our government oil stockpile, the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. The New Direction Congress will continue to bring forth responsible proposals to increase supply, reduce prices, protect consumers, and transition America to a clean, renewable energy independent future."
Well, let's get this one straight. No one is going to drill 3 miles off any coast and drilling will not save us only pennies per gallon at the gas pump. Is she on drugs? I guess she has been taking too much LSD during the hippy craze. She calls it a hoax. I call her do nothing plan negligence as she denies her fiduciary responsibility to the oath of her office. Her plan is "BS!" It is a laugh that she calls her Congress the "New Direction." Her plan is to increase solar and wind energy (notice nothing mentioned about nuclear) and put regulations on speculators, which can be done by the SEC and other regulators in Wall Street without Washington's help. She wants to tap into the Strategic Petroleum Reserves. I guess no one told her that tapping into the reserves will only have a 3-day window of relief at the pump. She was the one who begged President Bush not to stockpile surplus into the Reserves in hopes that decreasing our demands (purchases), will increase world supply, and decrease gas price at the pump. Instead, we saw the price of oil peaked to $147.00 per barrel. Good job, Pelosi!
Democrats' intent is to socialize the oil industry and to allow the price of gas to escalate in order to decrease consumption. This idiotic notion is the same to say to a fat person that the only way to lose the weight is to lock him or her in a house with no food and starve. This is the Democrats game plan from day one and we can thank a couple of Liberal Congresswomen by letting the cat out of the bag.
But this is not the only extraordinary idiotic scheme dreamed by a politician. Barack Obama gave his solution to the gas and oil crisis. He said,
"We could save all the oil that they're talking about getting off drilling if everybody was just inflating their tires and getting regular tune-ups. You could save just as much."
That's just great, Barack. I'm so irrate by the stupidity by the Democrats' solution. By their inactions, the very people they try to protect (the lower and middle class) are getting killed at the gas pumps and these politicians don't give a crap!
I have stated that this election season will be all about energy. I have said this summer of last year. This small reprieve at the gas pump as of late is only a teaser. The market is not stable enough to sustain a downward trend of the price of oil; unless, there is a significant and physical action in drilling.
Here is the video of Barack's stupid comment in Missouri today. What a freaking idiot!
