Obama Minions Launch Political Ad Campaign Trying to Distance the President from High Gas Prices


The double standard continues on high gas prices … it can’t be Obama’s fault.

The not responsible for anything President Barack Obama’s minions are coming to his aid with a political ad campaign trying to claim that Obama is not responsible for ever rising gas prices. Looks like BIG OBAMA vs. BIG OIL. I guess it is safe to say that the high gas prices are a concern to Obama and his reelection team other wise no such ad would have ever been made. So is Obama supposed to get a pass on gas prices, GWB did not. The WAPO thinks the people are getting smarter with gas prices, hardly. This is what happens when the MSM shills for a Democrat and has a double standard when it comes to issues that are damning to Democrats and their all-in candidate Obama.

Priorities USA sends over the new spot, and it ties the group funding the earlier ad attacking Obama directly to Mitt Romney.

The American Energy Alliance is spending $3.6 milion on an ad attacking Obama that blames him for the fact that gas prices “nearly doubled” since he took office (gas prices were low at the time because of the financial crisis), and amplifies multiple falsehoods, including the suggestions that Obama wants gas prices higher. Politico recently reported that the American Energy Alliance has deep ties to the oil billionaire Koch brothers.

In response, Priorities USA’s new ad — which will be running in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia — blasts the AEA ad as funded by Big Oil, and points out that the oil industry has pledged $200 million to Romney’s campaign:

The ad goes on to say the following; however, how come Obama’s lackeys do not repeat the words of Energy Secretary Chu who wanted to raise gas prices as part of Obama’s agenda or the VIDEO below where Barack Obama is all for higher energy prices? Hmm?

“Who’s behind this ad smearing President Obama? Big Oil, that’s who. The money they make from high gas prices — is going right into Mitt Romney’s campaign. Big oil executives have pledged two hundred million to help him. And Mitt Romney’s pledged to protect their record profits — and their billions in special tax breaks too. These guys all profit. You pay the price.”

Think high gas prices are not going to be a 202 election issue … Obama seems to think so.

      It is all GWB’s fault;the Senate republican’s fault; the House republican’s fault; GHWB’s fault; RWR’s fault; Gerald Ford’s fault; RMN’s fault; Moses’ fault because he did not extinguish the burning bush. And anybody else President Skippy can lay the blame on.

      Barry is running scared. He should be scared. The high gas prices is only one thing of many that the people are going to attach to his incompetent administration.

      Of course, we have him blaming everyone else he can think of for his problems. He needs to dig out Harry Truman’s sign “The buck stops here”.

      When Barry has the sense to shut down the EPA regulations taking the allowed sulphur content of gasoline from 300 ppm down to 30 ppm, it is only going to get more expensive.
      That one regulation could add an additional fifty cents a gallon to the cost of refining.

      The stupid liberals think those costs are not going to be passed on to the consumer. It gets worse, there is another regulation taking the sulphur down to 10 ppm which will add more cost.
