Obama doesn’t want lower gas prices

The Washington Times Daily - - Opinion -

Pres­i­dent Obama has twisted him­self into a pret­zel pros­e­ly­tiz­ing vastly con­flict­ing points in an ef­fort to re­strict do­mes­tic oil pro­duc­tion, thereby main­tain­ing the high cost of gaso­line (“Obama’s gaso­line ex­cuse ma­chine,” Com­ment & Anal­y­sis, March 20). Why? Be­cause he wants the price to re­main high.

Oil is the lifeblood of Amer­i­can pros­per­ity, which is the very last thing Mr. Obama de­sires. His plat­form is rad­i­cal and racial, and he is ide­o­log­i­cally ob­sessed with pun­ish­ing the great­ness of an Amer­ica he seems to hate and es­tab­lish­ing his ver­sion of a com­mu­nist state.

But of all the lies, dem­a­goguery, pro­pa­ganda and pure hog­wash ex­cuses the pres­i­dent uses for his war on a vi­brant, thriv­ing Amer­ica that runs on oil (just try, as Rush Lim­baugh sug­gests, get­ting a Boe­ing 747 in the air with so­lar pan­els), he ig­nores the fact that were we to open up vir­tu­ally un­lim­ited oil pro­duc­tion in the United States, the price of gaso­line would be nowhere near what it is to­day.
