Pelosi 2008: Bush to Blame for High Gas Prices; Pelosi 2012: Wall Street to Blame for High Gas Prices

Posted by on Feb 24, 2012 at 8:54 am

Obviously the Democrats are worried their golden boy will be taking heat for skyrocketing gas prices so this week they’ve gone on the offensive. Their diversionary tactics will probably work since the media will dutifully carry their water. But it’s interesting to see the double talk from idiots like Nancy Pelosi. Back in 2008, it was the evil Bush to blame for soaring prices at the pump.

“This is a scam of the greatest magnitude,” says Speaker Pelosi.

Rising gas prices affect groups like the Boys and Girls Club that is cutting programs to save costs, a small businessman who finds himself being priced out of competition or a caregiver who can’t afford gas to get to clients.

And for other Meals on Wheels programs around the bay, hikes in fuel costs have meant fewer deliveries. They can’t find volunteers who can afford to fill their tanks.

Prices at the pump are a pain for all of us, but Speaker Pelosi is accusing President Bush of policies that have driven up the prices, and says she has a solution to bring prices down immediately,

“Mr. President, do not fill the strategic petroleum reserve with oil at record highs. Instead, take out the oil that we brought at a lower price to bring down the price of oil, to reduce the price at the pump,” says Speaker Pelosi.

So, whose fault is it now? Obviously not Obama’s.

“Wall Street profiteering, not oil shortages, is the cause of the price spike,” Pelosi said in a statement. “Unfortunately, Republicans have chosen to protect the interests of Wall Street speculators and oil companies instead of the interests of working Americans by obstructing the agencies with the responsibility of enforcing consumer protection laws.”

Expect hearings on Capitol Hill any day now. The Democrats will do anything to distract you from Obama’s failed policies and will just blame “Big Oil” and now Wall Street. Good thing for them they have willing accomplices in the media to play along.

    The basic economic laws of Supply and Demand affect not only oil and gas prices, but political rhetoric also.

    As long as there is a demand for the pretty lies of the left, those such as Pelosi will supply them.

    Nancy amazes me. Usually, people with deadened facial nerves cannot detect changes in wind direction, but nooooo, she seems to be quite perceptive. Then again, it may just be the weathervane sticking outta her ass.

    Once again President Goebbels and his regime are blaming someone else for their own shortcomings. The sad thing is; to the ignorant (Omama supporters) “The Big Lie” seems to be very effective.

    And if and when the day comes that our people in congress have to take drug and competency tests the stunningly stupid Nazi Pelousy will quickly become unemployed. She can then retire to her winery and take her place as another one-percenter and live HER big lie.

    Its totally the fault of the R Party becuase they are the ones who supported JOHN McCAIN for President in 2008 and people said,EWE, not that old clown, lets try the shiny dark skinned fella,he looks nice.

    Higher gas prices are a small price to pay for all of the Hope&Change! that we are receiving in return

    “Republicans have chosen to protect the interests of Wall Street speculators and oil companies instead of the interests of working Americans ”

    It’s funny but, depending on which side of the equation you are on, “speculators” is synonymous with “investors”. Back in ’07-’08 one of the factors fueling the runup in fuel prices was the huge quantities of investor cash flowing into oil futures. This came about because of the sudden drops in the dollar against other currencies because of the Fed and Treasury bailouts of several investment banks. Today we have QE2, possibly QE3, the ECB looking to bail out Greece (followed by Portugal and Spain in the not too distant future) and continued economic suckage as far as the eye can see. Commodities remain a great hedge against future downdrafts. So investor cash continues to bolster those prices.

    You want the “speculators” out of the oil marketplace? Howzabout providing them with other opportunities to diversify their investments? By continuing to hold the economy down with the regulatory cudgel you prevent that from happening.

    …or treating the Dollar, Euro or other hard currencies as monkeytown money to be printed up at will with no regards to the consequences of debasement

    Hey nancy,If I get in on an IPO, am I an investor, or a speculator? Lemme clarify; if I’m a good little leftist which one am I?

    I’m trying to decipher her ridiculous statement. Typical misleading liberal bullcrap. She talks about Republicans in cahoots with big oil to obstruct consumer protection agencies. Does she want price controls?

    The real problem is that people hear this crap from Pelosi – as well as from yahoos like Maxine “gangsta bankers” Waters – and hear magic words like “Republican” and “oil companies” and equate those things with evil. Instead, we should equate misleading fork-tongued devils like Obama, Pelosi, & Waters with evil.
