The Effect of Obama’s Energy Policies on Gas Prices.
As Americans continue to feel the effects of President Obama’s anti-oil agenda at the pump, defensive liberals are circling back to a familiar line of counter-attack: blame Bush. The media vacuum on gas prices has made this line of attack all the more promising with very little national coverage being given to the president’s destructive domestic drilling agenda. Unfortunately it misses an obvious point.
President George W. Bush was mostly attacked for wanting to drill too much (or being “cozy” with the oil industry), while President Obama’s policies are rooted in unilaterally shutting down the domestic oil industry amidst rising prices and a struggling economy.
I remember the long lines at the pumps back in the 70’s and the odd/even form of rationing that we had to go through.
It wasn’t any fun and would be interesting to see if Obama’s anti-drilling policies will plunge us into another energy crisis.
