Shocking revelation: Obama can’t lower gas prices

by editor on April 10, 2011

There was a time just a few short years ago when Presidents had power. When Presidents were men of responsibility. And when gas at $2.50 a gallon and unemployment at the unheard of level of five percent, it was most assuredly George W. Bush’s fault.

The god who walks among men cannot control oil prices

Regretfully those days are long gone. And in the new America not even the smartest, coolest or most able President ever can be expected to do a thing about the cost of gas approaching (and no doubt surpassing) four dollars a gallon.

Fox reports. We deride:

“I’m just going to be honest with you. There’s not much we can do next week or two weeks from now,” the president told workers at a wind turbine plant. It’s a theme Obama’s struck before as he tries to show voters he’s attuned to a top economic concern with gas prices pushing toward $4 a gallon.

But just in case Obama decides that he wants to try and do something about skyrocketing energy costs we suggest he look into the following solutions.

1. Lower taxes on gas.
2. Increase fuel efficiency by getting the ethanol out of our gas tanks.
3. Drill here, drill now, pay less.
4. Adopt economic policies that strengthen the dollar.
5. Restrict the First Lady to 12 vacations a year.

[…] sites, calling restrictions on drilling, “ridiculous.” His response to Obama’s claims that control of the price of gas does not rest in the hands of the president was this: “With all due respect, Mr. President, there is something you could do to ease the pain […]

Silly naysayers!

The best part is the deafening silence after aforementioned commandment….

Inquiring minds want to know. Didnt Dinglebarry appoint some commission or some such thing a few months ago to look into gas prices to make sure there was no “shenanigans” going on? What happened to that study? Or, do they need another 10 years and $2 Billion to come to an inconclusive answer?

What a bunch of crap, of course the Obummer can have an influence on gas prices and at the same time help our economy.

All he has to do is hold a press conference. Get the Lame Stream Media together with FoxNews, which has more viewers than all the LSM outlets put together, then announce he is lifting drilling restrictions in ANWR, offshore and the Bakken Field in North Dakota.

He can announce to the world that he is ordering the EPA to ease regulations so more refineries can be built in our country starting now. He can tell the idiot tree huggers to sit down and shut up. They are the minority, things have been tried their way and it ain’t working so just shut the hell up.

He could lift restrictions on the shale oil industry. We are sitting on top of the largest known reserves of shale oil in the world, literally trillions of barrels of oil, and we are not allowed to take advantage of it. It is time for that nonsense to stop for the good of the American citizens.

This is all it would take for OPEC, and the rest of the world, to understand that he is our President and he is going to allow American ingenuity to do what we do best. Get things done and get it done now. One simple news conference, lasting about 15 minutes, and I would bet a dollar to a donut that we would be seeing $30 dollar per barrel of oil within 3 months.

Hot damn people! I just proof read what I wrote and I swear if the Obummer did this even I would vote for him! Who cares if he was born in Kenya, Kathmandu or Havana, Cuba, as long as he proved he is OUR President and is willing to let Americans do what we do best. Get ‘er Done!

Oh well, so much for wishfull thinking. 52% of the fools, excuse me, voters, decided a community organizer was better than a leader for this country. The little I had left out of my paycheck, after I filled my truck up with gas, was spent on a bucket of vasoline. Maybe it will help when our government bends me over to stick it to me with a sandpaper rubber.

Whiskey,

Obama could do all those things you mention and it would help enormously. But he won’t do any of them because he wants oil prices to soar, he wants us to pay and pay, he wants us to come running to him to beg for a government solution to the energy crisis…a solution that doesn’t exist.

So…. he can’t walk on water, he really didn’t come from Krypton and now he doesn’t have the ability to deal with economic issues. What is Obama good for? All I know is that whoever votes for this man is a fool of the lowest degree….

The most intelligent, most articulate (man) on the planet.

They are morons and sometimes I wish they would get deported just for being stupid.

I’ve always said that if stupidity can’t be fatal, it should at least be painful. If it can’t be painful, it should be criminal. And if it can’t be criminal, then it can at least be presented as entertainment.

And that leads us to shows like “Cops” and “1000 Ways To Die.”
