Every time Barack Obama opens his mouth, anyone who has three functioning brain cells has to ask the obvious question. Is he really that clueless or is he lying to the American people?
My money is on lying.
As gas prices rise, Obama says he can do nothing about it.
Meanwhile, a big issue on the minds of voters is the skyrocketing price of gas.
Obama referred to the phrase, "there's no magic bullet." The president said any politician who says there is one is not being truthful.
Still, an ABC poll released on Monday shows Obama is taking the blame.
The poll shows two-thirds of Americans disapprove of his handling of gas prices, which is a record high for the president, and only eight months before the election.
"Well look, as long as gas prices are going up, people are going to feel like I'm not doing enough, and I understand that," Obama said.
The president said his fight for a payroll tax cut last year will help Americans afford higher gas prices.
"Ultimately, though there's no silver bullet. The way we're going to solve this problem is what we talk about today in our energy report," Obama said.
The president said America has had the highest domestic oil production in more than a decade.
The nation now exports more crude than it imports, reducing dependence on foreign oil, along with new fuel efficiency standards for cars and investments in alternative fuels.
"The bigger driver of these gas prices is speculation of war in the Middle East, which is why we've been trying to reduce loose talk about a war there," Obama said.
Republicans on the campaign trail see gas prices as a political opening against Obama.
'Your opponents say they can get gas to the $2.50 range. What do you think Americans should be OK with?" Warmoth asked.
"First of all, nobody believes that. They know that's just politics. Anybody who says we can get gas down to two bucks a gallon just isn't telling the truth," Obama said.
Obama did not give Warmoth an answer as to how much Americans should pay for gas.
However, Obama said his energy advisor did not rule out tapping the country's oil reserves.
Here is an answer for how much Americans should pay for gas. The answer is as little as possible.
Obama simply lies to the American people. History shows we can reduce the cost of gas. In 2008, as gas prices skyrocketed, George W. Bush lifted the executive order on offshore drilling. It was a symbolic move but it dropped gas prices from $4.50 a gallon to $1.60 a gallon.
Newt Gingrich has suggested gas could go down to $2.50 a gallon. They could go lower than that. The answer is simple. Drill. If we increase domestic supply, the price will go down.
Obama knows this. The problem is that Obama wants Americans to pay a lot of our gas.
Well, Obama, here’s the news. You may want Americans to pay more for gas, but real Americans do not.
Real Americans are going to put you out of office this November.
Lawrence. Martial law will happen because these Communists wont give up power. They have their taste of power, wont give it up. Soros, Van Jones, Unions, all the Communists in this Adminstration have planned this since 2008. Look at the records of the White House visits. They are discussing this daily. Why should they when America wont step up?
The party has created a false birth certificate, false secret service records, false social security number, hidden passports, hidden school records, hidden bc in Kenya, removed travel documents from airlines in August 01 1961 that shows an airflight from the State of Washington to Kenya and back, false marriage certificate of mother marrying, never married, etc. What has America done to force this deceiver from tell the turth. This fraud is protected by Congress, this Administration, Communists in Government, Unions, lawyers, Judges, NAACP, LA RAZA, ACLU. They are cover-up for this fraud. No Congressional hearing, no trials, No Impeachment hearing, no grand jury, nothing. Just investigations, then dropping it.
So why should be follow the Constitution and the rule of law? Why not declare marshal law to prevent and election, to change President and Congress. Why not defy the rules when Communists now rule the Government? Who will stop this? Answer, no one.
Barry: I believe when blood starts flowing in our streets you will see REAL AMERICANS stand up and defend USA. There are many who have taken the oath like myself many years ago. Defend our country or die trying. Oath to our country cannot be bought from true Americans. Give me liberty or death.
Im with you Lawrence. I will fight for America, will not yield to corruption, our current Communists in government. Wait till the teachers union go on strike, next transporation to stop America financially.
They will be taking to the steets, union, thugs, communists, minorities, marxist, gays, criminals, illegals, federal workers, etc. What will parents do when their children have no place to go? Who will watch the children so they can go to work to support the family? Its all coming in July/Aug 2012, just watch and wait. I will be watching from TV, when people will take to the streets in major cities, LA, SF, San Diego, Sacramento, here in California. They will be rioting, destroying property. BO will declare Marshal law, stop the election until he gains control, which he wont. He has planned this with Soros, Van Jones, SEIU. Its all in the works, ready to go.
Get ready for angry parents, with no place to place their children while they work. Just wait till panic, Kios in the streets. Its all coming, I predict June-Nov 2012. People will stay home and be entertained, a reality show. lets talk about what Snooky will be doing, or American Idol. But, this is no joke, Communism are taking over while we sleep. No reason to panic, just place head in sand and look the other way, conform, tolerate and accept.
I hate this talk of "Real Americans". What is a "Real American" anyway? Arent we all "Real Americans"?
Depends if you agree with the founding principle of this country and the Constitution or are a liberal that wants to change it fundamentally.
I think it is both,but he is a LIAR,he is the reason gas-prices are so high because he is devaluing the Dollar,that's why gas costs so much.
