Let them Eat Cake … “I remember what it was like pumping gas” …as he laughs. Nice joke Mr. President. Obama states that there is nothing he can do to lower current oil prices. Really Mr. President, nothing? Is it you can’t do or just do not want to do?

“I remember that,” Obama added.
“I’m just going to be honest with you. There’s not much we can do next week or two weeks from now,” Obama said earlier today about gas prices.
Unbelievable that a President can joke about the skyrocketing gas prices that “We the People” pay. What is wrong with this clown that he jokes about the pain that people pay at the pump and then blames us for having gas guzzlers. The One cannot blame this one on GWB, the increase in gas prices have occurred under Obama. Isn’t it interesting that the AP completely changed their original story about Obama and his gas price remarks. How unlike the state run media. However, what the AP forgets is that we are in the age of the Internet and Instapundit has the original story (screen shot) that they have
taken down scrubbed.
“Obama needled one questioner who asked about gas prices, now averaging close to $3.70 a gallon nationwide, and suggested that the gentleman consider getting rid of his gas-guzzling vehicle.”
More from the Herald News:
“I’m just going to be honest with you. There’s not much we can do next week or two weeks from now,” the president told workers at a wind turbine plant. It’s a theme Obama’s struck before as he tries to show voters he’s attuned to a top economic concern with gas prices pushing toward $4 a gallon.
Of course it’s a different story if you are Barack Obama and the vehicle you are driven around in.
“If you’re complaining about the price of gas and you’re only getting 8 miles a gallon, you know,” Obama said laughingly. “You might want to think about a trade-in.”
So as The Other McCain opines, how will Obama’s Libyan war affect gas prices … expect soon to see $150 per barrel prices later this year … Thanks Barack! 2012 cannot come fast enough.
UPDATE I: From the LA Times, will gas prices tank Oabma’s 2012 White House run? I realize this is a tough idea for Obama to grasp as he is one of the most unqualified individuals ever to hold the office of the Presidency of the US … but the increased gas prices are just one of the many things that will tank Obama in 2012. Nice try by the MSM to tie Obama’s fate to something that he supposedly cannot change. However, add gas prices to the economy, Obamacare, unemployment, out of control spending, record federal deficits, home foreclosures, bankruptcies and the over all apathy of Obama is cannot lead on domestic or foreign affairs.
For much of President Obama’s term, White House aides were convinced the main barrier to his reelection was the worrisome unemployment rate. But even as the economy bounces back, a new political obstacle has emerged: rising gas prices.
It certainly does not help when Obama seemlingly just laughs away “We the People’s” pain at the pump. Never has a president been such a comedian and clown when it came to people’s pain. Say goodbye in 2012 Obama, you have more than earned your pink slip.
