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.
