Today’s Gas Prices Aren’t Bush’s or Iran’s Fault: These Are Barack Obama’s Gas Prices
During last night’s debate in Mesa, AZ, moderator CNN’s John King suggested Iran’s behavior was driving gas prices up, and asked the candidates how they’d deal with Iran in order to stabilize the price of petroleum. What an asinine question! Our gas-price problem isn’t because of Iran, rather, it’s because of Barack Obama. If we were drilling for our own oil, as Sarah Palin suggested in 2008 with “Drill Here, Drill Now,” it wouldn’t matter what Iran was doing with their crude, for we would be producing enough oil at home to drastically cut (and eventually eliminate) our use of foreign oil.
Seriously folks, King’s question struck me as way for him to lay down cover for Obama, who has spent his presidency looking for cover and scapegoats to explain away his failure. (Those aren’t my words alone – in a recent USAToday poll 50% of respondents said they’d rank Obama as a failure, while only 44% said he was a success.)
