There is a ticking time bomb that is slowly exploding over the American electorate. This is the time bomb that will be one of the primary causes for Barack Obama being a one-term blunder.
What is it?
It is the rising gas prices we are all seeing.
Gas prices started this year at $3.13 a gallon. Today they are $3.67 a gallon. Predictions are we will see $5 a gallon by this summer. All over real America, rising gas prices are causing Americans real pain. Higher gas prices not only cost Americans more money at the pump, but the ripple effect will push up prices, such as food.
I was on MSNBC today and Martin Bashir and I discussed this. Bashir, like all of the hosts on MSNBC is a liberal and he was shocked that Newt Gingrich’s $2.50 a gallon gas plan is resonating with real Americans.
While the Obama regime pushes high gas prices, Americans want lower gas prices.
From the Los Angeles Times:
President Obama’s approval rating has taken a hit in a new poll that shows a growing frustration with the president’s handling of the economy.
The Washington Post/ABC poll found that 46% of people approve of the Obama’s job performance, while 50% disapprove. That’s a reversal of the president’s ratings just last month, when his approval hit 50% for the first time in that survey in nearly a year.
The quick drop coincides with a spike in gas prices and an increase in criticism from Obama’s Republican rivals on the issue, even as the economy has shown noticeable signs of growth.
But the poll underscored how rising gas prices – always a political peril for presidents -- threaten to keep Obama from reaping the rewards of the good economic news. Obama’s top rivals, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, were running roughly even with the president.
The poll found 65% of those surveyed disapproved of Obama’s handling of gas prices.
Newt Gingrich has the right idea when he says we can push the price down to $2.50 a gallon. If anything, Newt’s plan lacks some ambition. Based on history, there is no reason to doubt that if we tried; the price of gas could be pushed down much further.
Obama is never going to do this. He does not believe in America nor does he believe that Americans should have cheap energy.
The bad news is America is suffering under the policies of the Obama regime and is having to pay for the high gas prices he wants us to have. The good news is, they higher the gas prices go, the chances of Obama’s reelection go down.
BO wants to sell his electric cars.
Is there any congressional backbone?
Is the pope protestant?
A contadiction of terms.
A gathering of "birds" in flight or on the ground would be a "flock."
A gathering of "baboons" - - would be a "Congress".
Or so I've heard.
Talk about an indictment of the nation's education system, Obama is it.
Can you spell Madrasa?
Yes, Judson you sent out a blog in December or early January predicting $5/gallon gas by July. You totally called that one! and I announced what you said to my liberal friend that day and he disregarded it and said conservatives were fear mongers. Well... You were right, it will go there and people will be screaming.
Obama = Dunce
More than Dunce but I can't put it in type here
BASTARD! would probably more approriate.
I like that and many more too
Newt is right of course.....the price of oil is mostly controlled by speculative trading!
Might be a really good way to make a lot of money. Of course, the speculative price is always that, the perception of the future price!
And we lack the necessary future information, to predict which way the future price will go.
Those on the inside will do extremely well! As the election approaches, the landscape may change.
Seems like there was something recently about Congressional Insider Trading.
