Predictably, Schumer Calls for Probe Into “Gas-Price Fixing”

Posted by on Mar 02, 2012 at 7:56 am

Do we know this tool or what? From February 14:

Don’t worry, this won’t have any effect on King Obama’s re-election efforts. He’ll just blame Big Oil and his media underlings will dutifully parrot whatever he says.

Then schmucks like Chuckie Schumer will demand federal investigations into “price gouging” and whoever the GOP nominee is will be tied to Big Oil. It’s all so simple to forecast.

Fast forward just over two weeks and what do you know?

In New York, Sen. Chuck Schumer hopes that a quick resolution of a federal probe into gas-price fixing at oil refineries could curtail the continuous rise in prices.

Anything to distract from the Democrats and Obama’s disastrous energy policies. Blame someone else.  Maybe Schumer should do something original, like call a Sunday press conference to expound further.

    The goo dnews is, he’s consistent. The bad news is, this will go nowhere and the useful idiots will never admit that this is just another stunt paid for with taxpayer money.

    IF Schumer were honest, his search would lead him directly to the administration’s current occupant and his “sitting on own hands” approach to domestic energy production– Obamatorium, combined with draconion EPA overkill regulation, resulting in refineries shutting down, and suppressed oil production, resulting in 60% DEPENDENCE ON IMPORTING FOREIGN OIL, is what comes out the other end as higher prices at the pump (retail). But that isn’t what Schumer is “all about”– he only wants to score political points with his base, by pursuing his personal agenda against U.S. oil/energy companies. He is either an idiot or a LIAR if he claims that they alone are determining the price of gas at the pump.
