President Obama wanted high gas prices way back in 2008!
During a June 10th, 2008, interview with CNBC, then-candidate Obama said this: I think that I would have preferred a gradual adjustment. The fact that this is such a shock to American pocketbooks is not a good thing. But if we take some steps right now to help people make the adjustment, first of all by putting more money into their pockets, but also by encouraging the market to adapt to these new circumstances more quickly, particularly US automakers, then I think ultimately, we can come out of this stronger and have a more efficient energy policy than we do right now.
Aren't you glad that in 2008 Obama took steps to help you people make the adjustment by putting more money into your pockets? Oops, I forget, that was simply more empty rhetoric from the President.
