GOP sees chance to attack Obama on rising gas prices

MSNBC -- Rising gasoline prices, trumpeted in foot-tall numbers on street corners across the country, are causing concern among advisers to President Obama that a budding sense of economic optimism could be undermined just as he heads into the general election.

White House officials are preparing for Republicans to use consumer angst about the cost of oil and gas to condemn his energy programs and buttress their argument that his economic policies are not working.

In a closed-door meeting last week, Speaker John A. Boehner instructed fellow Republicans to embrace the gas-pump anger they find among their constituents when they return to their districts for the Presidents’ Day recess.

Gee another chance to punch the BHO & Co. clown.

Naw, I'll pass. This one is too easy.

For anyone, BHO & Co. included, to be serious about lowering energy and other commodity prices, the commodity markets must return to supply and demand rather than driven by speculator driven paper pushers that have no business being there.

Until and unless that is fixed, the mess will continue.

NO ONE is touching that with a 100 foot pole. They are being paid off to stay away from the solution. Too much money is being made off of us.

Fleeced.

Had enough?

There is sufficient blame for the BO administration for his energy policies, but I am not too certain that any advice coming from the House Speaker, John Boehner can be taken seriously.

It was much like when Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House and he offered to help campaign for other Republican Congressmen, many would flat out refuse his help, because he was not to be trusted and was of such low reputation.

Democrats attacked Bush and Republicans might as well attack Obama on the oil prices as he's fair game. Of course though, the people who voted him in are partially responsible as well.

If you think that Mitt Romney, or Obama, or Joe Shmoe is gonna do ANYTHING about gas or energy prices when they get elected, you're really not past 2nd grade, are you??? No. You're not.

There's no shortage of things to attack Obama on, which is why he's going to go 100% negative against the entire Republican field.

I think congress has themselves to blame for the problems with gas and oil given their reaction to those that lobby for the industry.

People vote for whoever gives them free stuff, not on gas prices. That is sad, especially since nearly half the nation is getting free stuff thanks to the rest of the nation.
