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.
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.
