The Liberals/Dems Outraged in 2008 with High Gas Prices. Convenient Lapse of Memory? Or Hoping Americans Don’t Remember?



From Right Sphere:

Oh, look!! Back in 2008, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Nancy Pelosi about the cause of high gas prices. Her response:

Got it. So, back in 2008 the cause of high gas prices was “attributed to two oil men in the White House.”

Good enough. Seeing as high gas prices are the fault of “two oil men in the White House,” I can’t wait for Pelosi to make her statement laying the blame for these outrageous gas prices where she says they belong: at the feet of President Barack “Big Oil” Obama and Vice-President Joe “Fracking” Biden.

TRS SAFETY NOTE: Don’t hold your breath waiting for this to happen.



Democrats talking about high gas prices and what they would do if elected

Listen to a few Democrats scold Bush on $2 – $3 a gallon gas and what they would do if you gave em a chance. What have they done….nothing.

Even Current DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Shultz got into the act in 2005:

Current Democrat National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz used a bobble head toy elephant to deride Republicans for allegedly affirming oil company demands and causing high gas prices.

Cuba oil project drilling to start

January 27, 2012

By Sarah Rainsford

Cuba will begin exploratory drilling in search of oil this weekend, when drilling will start on a rig just 100 kilometers (62 miles) from Florida.

The operation is raising concerns over what happens under the terms of the US embargo, in the event of an incident at sea.

The embargo states that neither American firms nor the coast guard could come to Cuba’s assistance or provide equipment to help contain or clean up any oil spills.



Even after Obama loans to “Green Companies” have ended in bankruptcy, Obama shells out more taxpayer money/loans for “Green Jobs.”

Idiocracy:  Repeating something over and over and expecting a different result.

Failed Obama Energy policies?

Why do Democrats continue to back Obama energy policies?



Pelosi Issues Statement On Soaring Gas Prices

February 23, 2012

Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today on the rising gas prices across the country:

“Independent reports confirm that speculators are driving up the cost of oil, hurting consumers and potentially damaging the economic recovery. Wall Street profiteering, not oil shortages, is the cause of the price spike.  In fact, U.S. oil production is at its highest level since 2003, and millions of acres have been cleared for additional development.

“We need to take strong action to protect consumers from this speculation.  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.  They have also repeatedly opposed our efforts to end billions of dollars in outdated taxpayer subsidies for oil companies enjoying record profits.

“We support efforts by the Obama Administration to expand domestic energy resources, including natural gas and renewable sources like wind and solar that create jobs in America and will end our dangerous dependence on foreign energy supplies.  This can be achieved because today, the United States currently has more oil and gas rigs at work than the rest of the world combined, and imports of foreign oil have decreased.

“We call on the Republican leadership to act on behalf of American consumers and join our efforts to crack down on speculators who care more about their profits than the price at the pump even if these spikes harm the American consumer and our economy.”

Speculators? Such as the Federal Reserve and other central banks who have pumped $2 trillion of “liquidity” into the capital markets in the past 3 months just so Italian BTPs don’t implode to fair value and so Europeans can continue living in a socialist “paradise” even as the bankers steal their gold?

Or is it the same congressional speculators who until recently had every right to front run the public on advance knowledge that the SPR would be tapped due to Democrat insistence to sacrifice America’s last energy backstop only to win the election?

Or is Nancy simply pissed off that she can no longer trade ahead of any market moving news?

Whatever the reason for the gas surge, with these idiots in charge one thing is certain – the situation is about to get far, far worse.
