Gas pains – Tea Party Nation

What is it?
It is the rising gas prices we are all seeing.
Gas prices started this year at $3.13 a gallon. Today they are $3.67 a gallon. Predictions are we will see $5 a gallon by this summer. All over real America, rising gas prices are causing Americans real pain. Higher gas prices not only cost Americans more money at the pump, but the ripple effect will push up prices, such as food.
I was on MSNBC today and Martin Bashir and I discussed this. Bashir, like all of the hosts on MSNBC is a liberal and he was shocked that Newt Gingrich’s $2.50 a gallon gas plan is resonating with real Americans.
While the Obama regime pushes high gas prices, Americans want lower gas prices.
From the Los Angeles Times:
President Obama’s approval rating has taken a hit in a new poll that shows a growing frustration with the president’s handling of the economy.
The Washington Post/ABC poll found that 46% of people approve of the Obama’s job performance, while 50% disapprove. That’s a reversal of the president’s ratings just last month, when his approval hit 50% for the first time in that survey in nearly a year.
The quick drop coincides with a spike in gas prices and an increase in criticism from Obama’s Republican rivals on the issue, even as the economy has shown noticeable signs of growth.
But the poll underscored how rising gas prices – always a political peril for presidents — threaten to keep Obama from reaping the rewards of the good economic news. Obama’s top rivals, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, were running roughly even with the president.
The poll found 65% of those surveyed disapproved of Obama’s handling of gas prices.
Newt Gingrich has the right idea when he says we can push the price down to $2.50 a gallon. If anything, Newt’s plan lacks some ambition. Based on history, there is no reason to doubt that if we tried; the price of gas could be pushed down much further.
Obama is never going to do this. He does not believe in America nor does he believe that Americans should have cheap energy.
The bad news is America is suffering under the policies of the Obama regime and is having to pay for the high gas prices he wants us to have. The good news is, they higher the gas prices go, the chances of Obama’s reelection go down.
