Don’t think for one minute that your silence hasn’t been noticed. And don’t you dare think that we don’t remember the summer of 2008 when you liberals were screaming from the rooftops about how it was Bush and Cheney’s faults that gasoline was four bucks a gallon.
“It’s Bush’s fault!” you screamed. “Cheney’s responsible!” you whined. Then there was the crème-de-la-crème: “This liberal is all about socializing…taking over your businesses” courtesy of U.S. Representative Maxinne Waters.
We’re coming up on your guy’s third summer in the White House and we’re suddenly staring at $4/gallon gasoline. Yet liberals are so quiet about it this time that it makes this writer wonder why. Where’s the outrage? Where’re the screams of protest? Where are the e-mails telling Americans what day not to buy gasoline to show those “greedy oil companies who’s really in charge”? Aren’t liberals supposed to be “for the little guy”?
Well, this writer is a “little guy” and so far he hasn’t seen the liberals stand up and start screaming. Why isn’t Representative Waters demanding congressional hearings on the spike in gasoline prices and threatening to socialize the oil industry?
Is it possible that liberals have suddenly realized that the price of gasoline is not actually controlled by the oil industry but by greedy futures speculators on Wall Street? No, that can’t be it because that would imply they were wrong in 2008 about the Bush/Cheney connection to the oil industry and God forbid that liberals admit they were wrong about anything.
Is it possible that liberals have determined that the president has nothing to do with the price of gasoline? Well, not really. The ultra-left wing wackos will never say anything bad about their guy because…well…he’s their guy and he’s part of their plan to move America closer to socialism and the New World Order. They’re glad to learn that the president doesn’t have squat in terms of influence on the price of oil because that means their guy is innocent of any price hikes in gasoline. But it does bring the discussion back to them being wrong about Bush and Cheney in 2008.
Here’s where the discussion really gets muddy in that if it is true that the oil speculators are responsible now as they were back in 2008, then why aren’t the liberals and their guy going after them? Could it be that they are all trying to continue perpetuating the lie that the war in Iraq was about oil? Iraq isn’t exactly America’s #1 oil supplier in the first place. If it were, then once Saddam Hussein was toppled, then gasoline should have dropped in price to fifty cents per gallon! Of course there is the argument that some are making that the turmoil in Libya is responsible for the surge in gas prices. Not true since Libya only produces five percent of the whole world’s supply.
Liberals and their guy were so dead-set on blaming Wall Street for the economy that it is absolutely outside the realm of logic that they are giving oil speculators a pass on this one. Is it because liberals hate America so much that they would rather attack corporations as part of their plan to destroy this nation? Are liberals so ideologically blind that they cannot see where the problems are and hope that they can deflect blame from where it truly belongs to the scapegoats they have created to justify their hate and anger?
It just makes no sense that they are letting this one go when three years ago they couldn’t harp on it enough.
