That is not what the Liberals and Democrats were screaming when Katrina hit and disrupted the gas supply under Bush. Back then Bush magically set fuel supplies from th White House according to the Liberals.
What Ever Happened to All Those Price-Gouging Investigations by Democrats?
Mr. Obama admitted that he was perfectly aware that his own energy policies would result in skyrocketing pricesand that he was fine with that.
Lets not forget Steven Chu said that in explaining the Obama policy of progressively making gasoline more and more expensive in order to force Americans to turn to alternative energy sources.
FORCE US, Dont you just love that word!!
When gas prices went up under Bush, all fault rested on his shoulders, even obama chimed in with it being Bushs fault at that time
Nancy Pelosi had a lot to say about high gas prices being Bushs fault
But obama is such a egotistical narcissist, that he refuses to take any blame for anything
When he was boasting how high gas prices was Bushs fault, now that gas is even higher under his watch this is what he is saing that the federal government can do little to halt the current rise in gasoline prices.
In 2007, when the average national price ranged from $2.17 to $3.22, then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., demanded that the Federal Trade Commission investigate Big Oil for price manipulation. In 2008, presidential candidate Obama urged the Justice Department to open an investigation into whether energy traders have been engaged in illegal activities that have helped drive up the price of oil and food.
April 22, 2006, USAToday.com posted an article with the headline Democrats blame Bush for high gas prices.
The silence over the recent price run-up is an example of left-wing hypocrisy. They enjoyed bludgeoning Bush but now that its on obamas watch they are silent and absence of demands for investigation concerning illegal activity.
White House advisers believe Obama needs to address the recent spike in gasoline prices, even though they see it as a cyclical occurrence.
Obamas decision to reject a permit for a cross-country oil pipeline as evidence of a misguided policy.
The officals at the White House would have you believe that the high spike in gas is proof obamas policies are workingI must have missed that lesson in Math!!
But they too (white house officals) want you to believe there is little Obama or any president can do to change the trajectory of prices now.
Hmmm then why did they go out of their way to blame Bush.
Instead of blaming obama they are using excuses as, less consumption, to middle East unrest and the growth of China and India..(now thats a new one)
Can you believe obama and his officials are still trying to blame this on Bush.talk about cowards
If they want to say Obama, who currently squanders hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars by investing in alternative energy, possesses no control over the law of supply-and-demand than they need to check themselves and admit that Bush did not either
With just 10 months until the 2012 presidential election, gas prices are almost twice what they were when that oil-loving evil George Bush left office.
Can you say media double standards on rising gas prices!!!
