who's the biggest liar of them all.
On the Presidential campaign trail in the summer of 2008, the last time gas prices spiked over $4.00, then Senator Obama criticized President Bush who had called on Congress to repeal bans on domestic oil drilling. Obama, who opposed any increase in domestic oil production announced that more drilling was unnecessary!
When the blossoming Messiah was a Senator, he proclaimed on the floor of the Senate that he would oppose any offshore drilling no matter how high the price of gasoline rose, even to $10 a gallon.
When the Messiah took office in 2009, the average price of gasoline in America was $1.83 a gallon. Today it is almost double that at $3.50. As of now gas has never been this high in the month of February and predictions indicate $5.00 a gallon by Memorial day. As the above indicates, the Obama Administration's policy is to increase it well beyond that.
This is what he said on the campaign trail in 2008.
"There are things you can do individually to save energy – simple things like making sure your tires are properly inflated. Simple things but we could save all the oil they’re talking about gettin’ out of drilling if everybody was just inflating their tires, and getting regular tune ups, you’d actually save just as much."
In other words buy a tire gauge and we would have so much gas we could leave our cars run overnight so we would't have to bother starting them in the morning.
Fast forward to 2011. President Obama now says:
"Whenever gas prices shoot up, like clockwork, you see politicians racing to the cameras, waving three-point plans for two dollar gas. You see people trying to grab headlines or score a few points. The truth is, there’s no silver bullet that can bring down gas prices right away."
The Obama approach is to deceive Americans and push forward with his Marxists agenda. So far he's doing a damn good job.
