We did the post on electric cars as a lead-in to
this post but ended up confused again after all
the press conferences this morning. We could care
less where our president was born or if Trump feels
he is the one who caused it to be shown.
While these press conferences were going on we
lost eight soldiers and a contractor in Afghanistan.
That should have precluded any trivial non-news
Obama proclaimed he was working on “problems” and
couldn’t be bothered about his birth certificate,
while Trump patted himself on the back and declared
that gas would go up to $6 or $7 a gallon. And
those who volunteered to defend our country died.
If something isn’t done about the current rate of
gas prices, let alone a rise in prices, our
economy will not grow. For this we blame Obama
because he can reverse the upward price trend
quickly and easily.
Some of us have been telling him the answer for
some time. As is his way, instead of following the
advice, he mocks the messenger. The answer my
friend isn’t written in the wind but lies with
“drill baby drill”.
Lift the moratorium on offshore drilling, allow
more drilling and lift the government restrictions
on the oil industry. DO NOT stop the subsidies
to oil companies to obtain your goal of sky-high gas
prices. It will not get us into electric cars.
There is an upside to this debacle however. If
Obama continues to ignore the rising gas prices
he will not get back in the White House in 2012.
We do feel that he will lift the moratorium at
some point between now and the election. He will
not do it for the right reasons but only because
he will believe it will give him another four years
as our poser in chief. Do not be fooled by this
bull he will be shipping.
