Such harsh criticism, but we’re just having a little fun here. Always interesting to take a look into the wayback machine when gas prices were a mere two bucks a gallon and how scathing the criticism was toward President Bush. I wonder if Senator Botox would care to utter those words these days now that prices are hovering around $4 a gallon and are double what they were when Obama first occupied the Oval Office?
Meanwhile, the Bush administration has been criticized for not taking action to find consumers some relief at the pump.
Democratic presidential challenger John Kerry’s campaign said Monday the administration’s national energy plan, which was announced three years ago this week, has not reduced U.S. reliance on foreign oil or lowered gasoline prices.
“When it comes to crafting consumer-friendly energy policies, George Bush has been an abject failure,” a Kerry spokesman said. “While gas prices skyrocket and consumers get pinched, oil companies are raking in record profits.”
Oh, the Democrats will still rail against oil companies. Notice how little their rhetoric changes over the years. But will they dare to hammer Obama over gas prices?
Of course not. For Obama, they’re not nearly high enough yet.
