One Wednesday, Barack Obama had his Marie Antoinette moment. It is not hard to see. Both Obama and the 18th Century French Queen share an amazing arrogance and disdain for the common man.
On Wednesday, Obama told Americans who were complaining about high gas prices to get used to them. When one man complained, Obama laughed him off by telling him to trade in his gas guzzler that only gets eight miles a gallon!
This is the arrogance of a man who has not pumped his own gas in years, will probably never have to again and does not have to worry about the price of gas, nor its effect on the common man.
He is also the man responsible for soon to be $4 a gallon gas in this country.
He bloviates, saying it isn’t his fault.
Yes it is.
He and his regime keep putting more and more of our resources off limits. We provide loan guarantees for foreign countries to drill off shore while not allowing it in the Gulf of Mexico. His policy of destabilizing the Middle East is making prices skyrocket. Put his economic policies which are making the dollar almost worthless are further pushing gas prices up
Remember candidate Obama? In 2008, the last time gas prices spiked like this, he said his problem was not with the high prices, but only with the rapid rise in the prices. Prices for gas have more than doubled under Obama. His Energy Secretary has said he would like to see gas prices more in line with those in Europe, which translate to about $10 a gallon.
Of course, the drive by media has been silent on all of this.
In 2008, when George W. Bush was still president, we had nightly news stories on the horror of $4 a gallon gas. Today, we do not. Even Fox is relatively tame on this story.
A few months ago, a former executive for Shell Petroleum predicted $4 a gallon gas by this summer and $5 a gallon gas by next summer.
The good news for conservatives is, we have seen this before. For those of us who lived though 1979-1980, this is déjà vu. Back then; we had a President who was the most extreme leftist ever to hold the office. His policies were a disaster for America. He did not believe in America as a great country and wanted us to see more along the line of an impotent European socialist country. He would not stand against our enemies either.
Gas prices soared under the Carter administration. He blindly thought the American people would simply sign up for four more years of misery. American taught him a lesson and put Ronald Reagan in the White House. America thrived because of that decision. In 2012, we are going to tell Obama we do not want four more years of his misery. Our mission now is to find the good conservative to replace the un-American President.
RAYMOND ... Don't you understand? Another four years and NOTHING WILL BE THERE. This man ... this bad president ... will have destroyed America. Best always, John
