Gas pains – Tea Party Nation

Gas pains – Tea Party Nation.

There is a ticking time bomb that is slowly exploding over the American electorate.  This is the time bomb that will be one of the primary causes for Barack Obama being a one-term blunder.

 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.

Name Names! – Tea Party Nation.

Mitt Romney or as we like to call him, Mitt the Cowardly liberal, is still lying to the American people and the Republicans in particular.

 Yes, there are a lot of lies, but there is one in particular that is worth mentioning.

 Which one is it?

 Mitt the cowardly liberal claims he has Tea Party support and has support from prominent Tea Party leaders.


 This started when I appeared MSNBC on Monday, on Martin Bashir’s show.   I stated Tea Partiers would not support Mitt Romney.   Romney claimed on the Laura Ingraham show that he had the support of prominent Tea Party leaders.



 The answer is, he does not have the support of any significant Tea Party group or leader. 


 Mitt Romney is a liberal.  Mitt Romney is simply John McCain 2.0.  Mitt Romney, if elected will advance a liberal agenda. 

 Mitt Romney has ignored the Tea Party.  His theory is simple.  He does not need us.  He will give the Tea Party lip service, just because any good politician does not go out of his way to antagonize a voting block. 

 For liberals, Romney is the candidate they most want to face.  The Tea Party movement at best will be lukewarm behind him and at worst many of us will simply pass on the Presidential race to concentrate on Senate and House races.  In previous polls, between one third and one half of Tea Party members surveyed said they would not vote for Romney in the general election. 

 (See our new Tea Party Nation Poll:  Will you vote for Mitt Romney?)

 Mitt Romney, like many politicians, simply says things and expects us to accept those statements as gospel, even if they fly in the face of the facts.

 The fact is Mitt Romney has no major Tea Party support.   No significant Tea Party figure has endorsed the liberal former Massachusetts governor

 The reason is the Tea Party does not support liberals. 

 Another statement Mitt Romney floats out that he expects us to blindly accept is that he is a conservative.  That is one of the most laughable statements in history.   If false statements could get you disqualified from running, Mitt would immediately be voted off the island for that whopper.

 The truth of the matter is that Mitt Romney was a very liberal Massachusetts governor.  He claims some of his liberal decisions were necessary because he had to run in a very liberal state.    What Romney does not say, most of his most liberal decisions were made after he announced he was not running for reelection.  He signed Romneycare after he was a lame duck.  He enacted cap and trade when he was a lame duck.    He could have just said I’m not enacting any of these laws and not had to worry about it because he was not going to run for reelection.

 Instead, he pushed Massachusetts even further to the left.

 Now, in New Hampshire, another liberal Republican, John McCain is going to endorse Mitt Romney.    McCain pretty much tanked the GOP four years ago.  Why does anyone care what McCain thinks?   In fact, McCain’s endorsement is just another good reason not to vote for Mitt Romney, the liberal from Massachusetts.

 So who endorses Mitt Romney?  Liberals?  Where are the Tea Party supporters he claims support him?  Like his claims of a conservative record, they are a figment of his imagination.
