Obama cares more for ide­ol­ogy than Amer­ica

The Washington Times Daily - - Opinion -

It is amaz­ing to me that Pres­i­dent Obama and En­ergy Sec­re­tary Steven Chu want Amer­i­cans to pay higher prices for fuel (“Gas costs too much; here’s why,” Web, Wed­nes­day).

I won­der who they think higher gas prices hurt. It isn’t the left’s oft-de­rided wealthy, since they can af­ford to pay higher costs for gaso­line. It’s the lower mid­dle class and the poor, who must con­tinue to drive and pay a higher per­cent­age of their in­come for gas. We end up pay­ing more for fuel and that means more money leav­ing the United States for for­eign shores.

Does the present ad­min­is­tra­tion know any­thing about busi­ness? Are they so wrapped up in ide­ol­ogy that they do not care that they are hurt­ing Amer­i­cans?

To those who pre­vi­ously sup­ported Mr. Obama, I sug­gest this: Look at can­di­dates who will not be driven by ide­ol­ogy. When you’re not pay­ing so much to fill up your gas tank, you might find you have more money to spend on other things. DON­ALD BLACK­WELL Camp Leath­er­neck, Afghanistan
