    [After denying the keystone XL Pipeline, after throwing out the anchor on new permits for drilling in the Gulf forcing the idle rigs to sail off to Brazil in search of work, Obama decides to go after the oil price speculators after completing his best work at smashing the domestic oil supply industry. If this isn't the classic of one hand doing one thing while getting everyone to watch the other...."Look here! Rich people!". Duplicitous forksucker. What wonders will the ObaMessiah bring us next? Guillotines, tundrils, and Madame DeFarge for those eeevil oil speculators? Remember the lady from 2008 screaming "He's going to pay for my groceries!!!"]

    "Obama Springs Into Action Over Skyrocketing Gas Prices, To Announce Crackdown On “Oil Market Manipulation” … For The 4th Straight Year…

    What a joke.

    Via NRO’s Jim Geraghty:

    President Obama’s big initiative for the day is yet another pledge to crack down on nefarious energy traders who are driving up prices of oil and gasoline.

    Today: “Under pressure to take action on rising gasoline prices, President Barack Obama wants Congress to strengthen federal supervision of oil markets, increase penalties for market manipulation and empower regulators to increase the amount of money energy traders are required to put behind their transactions"

    The last time he made a similar announcement the price of oil dropped by about half within two weeks.
