Gas Climbing Toward $5.00 a Gallon & Trump Says It’s Obama’s Fault


Thanks Barack Obama …

The price of gas keeps going up and up under the Obama Administration and the Obamamessiah cannot blame GWB for this one. The national average for regular unleaded is now as $3.76, up 19 cents from March 18, 2011 and up 91 cents from a year ago.  Some energy experts are saying that the price of gasoline could reach $5 per gallon is possible by Memorial Day or sometime in summer. So much for America’s summer vacations thanks to Obama’s policies. Hey Barack, you can bet that the people will not forget this any time soon, especially during the next Presidential election.

Donald Trump has chimed in on the ever increasing cost of gasoline and has roundly blamed President Barack Obama for the situation. Trump has been a thorn in the side of Obama lately and has obviously gotten under his skin. So much that Obama’s minions have felt it necessary to comment on Trump and claim he hasn’t a chance of being President.

Real estate developer Donald Trump blames President Obama for the rising price of oil, warning, “this country can never, ever recover” if oil prices continue to go up.

“That’s really the life’s blood of the country,” Trump told CNBC in a phone interview on Monday. The Trump Organization chairman, who says he’s considering running for president, plans to decide “before June” on the matter.

He contended that Obama is not a leader and is “in bed with these (OPEC) people. He doesn’t speak the way you have to speak to them.”

Add gas prices to the long list of failures of Obama. When combined with Obamacare, the economy, government spending, out of control record deficits and his overall weak leadership … the Lonely Conservative makes a valid point that the MSM obviously ignores, the GOP could run Bugs Bunny against Obama and win. It took Americans 8 years to develop an anti-Bush mentality that unfortunatley led to an Obama presidency. However, , it has taken Obama less than two years to be fed the One and make him a One term “One”der.

      It took “Joe the Plumber” less than a minute to figure out what Obama stood for. This happened long before election day.

      The liberals and those independents who refused to recognize reality is what got Obama elected.

      This presidency should be a valuable lesson to the voters. You DO NOT elect a person to be president of the United States who has zero real work experience and has an unknown background.

      Please, please, please run, Donald. Some people think because you went bankrupt and ruined a casino (a CASINO) you’re prepared to be President. Good thing even the Conservo-trons are mostly against you. Those that think Trump would be a great president are only making our slogan-driven, reactionary media more powerful. It certainly would be great entertainment.
      SM: You mean like Slogan driven President like Barack Obama and “Hope & Change”? Who knows whether Trump will run, any one is allowed to. The reason why Obama’s minions are concerned is that Trump will go after Obama like no other GOP candidate as he is beholden to no one but his ego.

      “The price of gas keeps going up and up under the Obama Administration and the Obamamessiah cannot blame GWB for this one.”

      Correct. Mainly because it’s got as much to do with the president as tungsten prices do.
      Which makes the rest of your comments quite bizarre.
      SM: Why would it be bizarre … the Libs spent 8 years and the first 2 1/2 years of Obama’s presidency blaming Bush for everything. I guess we forget the LEFT blaming W for increased oil prices and that Iraq was a war for oil.

      In this case Obama’s poor energy policy and anti-oil agenda is certainly to blame for the situation. The buck stops with the president.

      Gas prices are now the highest they have ever been in the month of April … Yet another honor bestowed upon this clueless President.

      Correct me if I’m wrong….
      I believe in the recent budget/deficit clash, that the Republicans wanted to slash funding or do away with E.P.A. The E.P.A. has done their best to limit what the automakers can do to significantly improve mileage in diesel driven vehicles with requirements for clean air standards and such. (Thank you E.P.A.- the air, water, food chain, and planet is so much better than when I was born into this world 50 some years ago…NOT.) Diesel mileage was better in vehicles in the 1990′s than automakers can muster up and still be in compliance with government standards today; I think this is a USA phenomenon because in other countries, diesel is alive and well. No, we do not need to go buy electric cars because the dictator in charge says to if we can’t deal with $4 or $5 gas prices. Someone tell me what it would take to deregulate big oil and alternative energy to let the private sector compete. Diesel and and alternative biodiesel fuels from veggie sources I think can be more competitive. A few years ago, bio diesel technology was showing promises in the private sector… (what happened with that?). Even ethanol/E85 could be more competitive if big oil companies did not dictate price and how it must be produced. Ethanol can be produced from non food sources such as hemp… which could be done if deregulated. Obamas’ energy policy grade= F for failure. I say we need to deregulate, diversify, and conquer when it comes to energy independence.

      years ago in the last crises for oil and gas and get this the price per gallon was .50 cents. Gas rationing was instituted. Why when the gas is almost 5.oo$ per gallon are we not rationing gas. How much more inflated prices at the pump, for our energy needs, food, medical care and housing is the poor working stiff supposed to endure. Were sending money abroad to countrys that hate us but love our money policys that give them the ability to use it against our troops who are there to protect the innocent. Stop the csh flow abroad stop taxing us to death, stop wasting our money. Put ti to good use here in the USA for our own people. Enoughs enough already.We the people have spoken many times but no one is listening…………….

      Wished THE DONALD would run. Of course, as much as an egomaniac he is, he never would- no need.

      Now, if he could only get rid of that hairstyle, he would be as near to perfect as humanly possible.

      Piers Morgan did a very interesting interview with him, which enlightened me to some new facts about him. Really brilliant Man! Never drinks, smokes or has ever done drugs and actually made his Daughter Ivanka WORK and earn her keep- in other words—just bc he is a Billionare he didn’t hand over the keys to the Golden Castle just because he could. Also never knew he had a Brother, a wonderful Man who was an accomplished Pilot, and a life long alcoholic who died quite young. Trump states it is one of the main reasons he never liked drinking.

      Anyway, I think the public perception of Mr. Trump is often not the most positive because he is so vocal in the MSM and rarely shows emotion. Clearly, he is all about the money, but behind the Man himself— he really is quite a rare individual with high morals and standards. He loves & respects Women (obviously) and has most likely cheated a time or two ?? (just a guess) – however, I would hate to see what he pays per month to all of his infamous Ex’s.

      Anyway, GO DONALD!!!!!! If O-BOMB-A sat at his Celebrity Apprentice table, he wouldn’t even make it through one episode before Donald would tell him:

      Barack- YOUR’E FIRED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      SM: As compared to what, politicians?

      Obama told the public that his intentions were to ruin this country and the weak minded still voted for him. and to my amazement, some still bow and worship him as if he were some kind of president.

      How Un-American, every time you elect a person, voted for the people, by the people, it is seen by world viewers that there is always room for a scathing attack against each president, rather than room for negotiation or support by the populace. Every faction, the Democrats and the Republicans have a moral right under the constitution to give their full support & allegiance to their president, honoring their commitment to serve their country. A President is a figure head in the balance of power, it is much the same as a figure of Royalty that reigns over it’s people and it does not constitute nor allow itself to debate or ridicule. Donald Trump has the right to run in any election of his choice but it would be dismaying to see his hopes dashed, for raising anti-sematic rumour mongering against the Obama Administration. Can you all put away your spite filled comments until you tackle this great burden America faces, standing behind your president as real Americans.
      SM: Wow you have America wrong. As Americans one has the right and obligation to question their elected officials. Not sure iof you quite understand, but they work for us, we sign their pay check and provide them with pink slips. If elected officials do not provide representation of the will of the people, they will be criticized and voted out of office.

      Obama is an epic failure. He provides no leadership skills and knows little to nothing about the US economy or jobs except that of his far LEFT liberal agenda. The people were BS’d by Obama and the MSM, coupled with a poor choice of McCain as a presidental candidate.

      A little more than 2 years later Americans, especially the Independents have figured Obama out. This is why Obama has a 41% approval rating in the Gallup poll and 35% by those affiliated with no party.

      Sorry, its our obligation and duty not to act like sheep.
