The funny thing is how I'm hearing about how the President and Congress can't affect gas prices.
While I'm sure that's true from the standpoint that they can't be expected to order gas prices to lower by their sheer podium-thumping skills or somehow seclude domestic supplies from the world oil market (we're currently exporting gas and diesel in the hundreds of thousands of barrels), they tend to leave out what happens if a President, say, invades a large Middle Eastern country for no good reason, or threatens another with bombing, etc.
That kind of thing tends to have some results, eventually. But yeah, this video and the talking points therein: Completely expected.
They're not doing that!
They're leasing pristine land for oil drilling for pennies and then SUBSIDIZING the companies that pump it out and sell it to whoever at market price.
Yes, but Obama is black.
Oil is black.
The transitive property of Foxian Logic states, it's all Obama's fault.
Actually, he can, but it's one of those things involving the very thin line between "casual if benevolent despotism" and "aconstitutional totalitarianism" which, incidentally, American Dominionism has very few problems with as long as it involves the human reproductive system.
MASS TRANSIT INFRASTRUCTURE SPENDING????!!!
ARE YOU INSANE??? THIS IS A REPUBLICAN SHOW!!!!
You didn't have to wait 4 years go get the blatant hypocrisy. Mere weeks or months after these comments the entire conservative idiot box was belittling and laughing at Obama for his suggestion that people to simply FILL THEIR TIRES PROPERLY to improve fuel economy.
OPEN THE STRATEGIC OIL RESERVE NOW! Oh wait, then the oil companies would just sell the oil at market prices. The government can't make them sell it cheaper, that would be s-s-s-s-s-socialism!
