Not for nothing but I think the plane is in a death spiral.
Obama not only loves high gas prices, he’s teflon on the issue –
Energy Policy: …Already, average pump prices have topped $3.50 a gallon, leading some experts to think they could reach an all-time high of $5 by the summer.
So what’s Obama’s response? He treats it like a badge of honor, saying this week that “gas prices are on the rise again because as the economy strengthens, global demand for oil increases.”
But what else can he say?
During his presidential campaign, Obama admitted he didn’t have a problem with sky-high gasoline prices, he just “would have preferred a gradual adjustment.”
His choice for energy secretary, Steven Chu, certainly doesn’t mind them. Before joining the administration he said that “somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”
And last year, Chu claimed “the price of gasoline over the long haul should be expected to go up.” Read here: Obama Loves High Gas Prices
Obama has made it real clear that he loves to thwart any effort to bring down gas prices –
Whenever Obama has had the chance to encourage production, he’s done the opposite:
• He needlessly halted Gulf drilling permits after the BP oil spill, and continues to slow-walk them. Permit approvals are less than half their pre-Obama average, and approval times have nearly doubled.
• Obama scuttled the 700,000-barrels-a-day Keystone XL pipeline, despite approval by the State Department after an exhaustive three-year review.
• And he endlessly demonizes oil companies while pushing to sharply raise their taxes.
The truth is that for Obama, low gas prices are the problem, since they would hamper progress toward his “green” Nirvana, where we all hop on government trains and putter around in government-approved electric cars. It’s just that he’s smart enough not to say this out loud. Read here: Obama Loves High Gas Prices
In this video he is making himself quite clear –
What I’d like to know is how you retrofit anything if you’re shutting down all sources of energy except the corrupt green thing???
In this video, he’s talking about our comeback. Yea, America is back! At about 5:30 the real baloney starts. It’s so funny. The $40 in the paycheck from the payroll tax is going to cover groceries, drugs, gas…he casually talks about the increase in gas prices and no one seems to notice it’s his dang fault! He talks about his new energy sources but forgets to mention 80% of the contracts are going to his donors.
He actually says our plane is up there and we are at cruising altitude –
