Romney: we can’t really blame Obama for higher gas prices
That would be unfair. And ungentlemanly, presumably. This despite the Obama Administration’s stated desire for higher gas prices as a way to ease fuel-guzzling bitterclingers out of their automobiles, this despite their attendant policies that have worked to assure a lower supply, from blocking drilling to nixing pipelines. Not to mention Obama’s own clearly articulated war on coal and electrical power, the costs for which he’s deemed must “necessarily skyrocket.”
— Which, if he keeps going at this rate, the GOP establishment’s preferred candidate will have removed from the table as potentially clarifying GOP/conservative campaign issues TARP, the federal stimulus, individual mandates, First Amendment protections for individuals and religious institutions, Cap-and-trade, and the idea of an involved federal government setting minimum wage laws tied to inflationary rates.
All of which must be intended to force the electorate to make a Presidential decision based on, like, hair or some such. Is what I think the plan is.
Good lord, people. Has it really come to this? This is the guy you’re going to go to the mat for?
(Thanks to daveinsocal who notes, “Romney is not only refusing to say outrageous things about the “good man” in the White House, he’s now actively running interference for him“.
To which I can only reply that at least it’s starting to make sense how often the Romney people seemed to be advising the Obama people on policy.)
