Something isn’t right. In 2004, the Democrats blamed Republican President George W. Bush for high gas prices — then close to $2 a gallon. In 2008, the Democrats again blamed Bush for high gas prices — then close to $3.30 a gallon.
So now gas is predicted to reach $5 a gallon, and the Republicans shouldn’t blame Democratic President Barack Obama? There is no energy program in place. Offshore drilling is curtailed and there is no willingness to bring in Canadian oil through the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.
There is an anti-gas, anti-coal sentiment and anti-anything else environmentalists dislike. You can’t use wind power to run a car. It is barely enough to power some homes.
It appears the president can be blamed — for making our lives miserable instead of making our lot in life better.
