Pelosi in 2007: Bush to Blame for $3 Gas; Pelosi 2012: Those Evil Speculators are Responsible for $4 Gas

It’s all so predictable. Two weeks ago she was blaming Wall Street. Now she’s moved on to speculators. Anyone but the miserable failure occupying the White House.

“Years of Bush Administration’s policies that have favored big oil over the consumers have resulted in record dependence on foreign oil, leaving American families and businesses to pay even higher prices.”

Pelosi continued, “This Congress, under the Democratic leadership, is working to make up for years of inaction, taking America in a new direction that helps bring down the cost of gas and promotes energy independence. Energy independence is essential, essential to reducing the price at the pump.”

As of March 2012 the average nationwide price of gas is $3.79, but Pelosi does not blame the Obama administration or the president’s plan for energy independence. Instead she focuses her criticism on speculators.

“Supply is up. Demand is down, you would think the price would come down. Enter the speculators,” Pelosi said on March 1, 2012.

A shame the media ignores the rank hypocrisy, but we expect nothing less. They’re too lazy and biased to even bother with the facts.

    So. The millionaire who got in on a sweet Visa IPO is blaming speculators? What’s next? Shady real estate speculators? Like Rezko, who gave obama a sweetheart land deal?

    Now if it’s speculators, why would these speculators be betting that the price of gas will be going up? Could it be foreign and domestic policies that might be restricting future supply?
