Obama Criticizes GOP for “Licking Their Chops” Over Rising Gas Prices

24 Feb



Real Clear Politics has more:

At a campaign event in Coral Gables, Florida, President Obama says Republicans see rising gas prices as a “political opportunity” and they are “licking their chops.”

Obama didn’t stop there. “They greet bad news so enthusiastically,” he added.

“Some politicians, they see this as a political opportunity. I know you’re shocked by that. Last week the lead story in one newspaper said, ‘Gasoline prices are on the rise and Republicans are licking their chops.’ That’s a quote. That’s the lead. Licking their chops. Only in politics do people root for bad news. They greet bad news so enthusiastically,” Obama said.

“You pay more, they’re licking their chops. You can bet that since it’s an election year, they’re already dusting off their three-point plan for $2 gas. I’ll save you the suspense. Step one is to drill and step two is to drill and then step three is to keep drilling.”

To anyone who’s been alive for the past 10 years, it is laughable to hear Democrats criticize anyone for rooting for bad news.  Democrats and their accomplices in the media took advantage of the struggles of the Iraq War when Bush was President on a daily basis.  All of the network and cable news outlets would lead each night with a death count of American soldiers in hopes of hurting Bush politically.   Furthermore, Democrats and the media made a huge deal out of bad economic news every chance they got when Bush was President.  This is nothing new.

I guess we should continue to trust Obama’s plan to deal with rising gas prices and our dependency on foreign oil:

Step 1:  Pay off your rich donors, who started phony “green” energy companies, with hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars, which later go bankrupt.

Step 2:  Put a moratorium on offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico

Step 3:  Raise taxes on U.S. oil and gas companies

That plan has worked brilliantly so far!
