    President Obama has a solution to the Gulf oil spill: $7-a-gallon gas.

    That's a Harvard University study's estimate of the per-gallon price of the president's global-warming agenda. And Obama made clear this week that this agenda is a part of his plan for addressing the Gulf mess.

    So what does global-warming legislation have to do with the oil spill?

    Good question, because such measures wouldn't do a thing to clean up the oil or fix the problems that led to the leak.

    The answer can be found in Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel's now-famous words, "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste -- and what I mean by that is it's an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before."

    That sure was true of global-warming policy, and especially the cap-and-trade bill. Many observers thought the measure, introduced last year in the House by Reps. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) and Edward Markey (D-Mass.), was dead: The American people didn't seem to think that the so-called global-warming crisis justified a price-hiking, job-killing, economy-crushing redesign of our energy supply amid a fragile recovery. Passing another major piece of legislation, one every bit as unpopular as ObamaCare, appeared unlikely in an election year.

    per USMB copyright policy keep copied articles down to just a few paragraphs and link the rest.

    $7.00 a gallon gas would really suck but just like cigarettes, I'll keep buying it no matter what the cost. It's really hard for me to push my truck because the wife insists on steering instead of helping to push.

    Why is anyone surprised here about this claim?????

    During the campaign he said TWO things about this that burned into my memory about gas prices.

    1. He was upset that gas prices rose so quickly because that caused resistance from the public.

    2. His ultimate goal was to get to $8/gallon gas.

    So why are we surprised this is his goal and he'd use this disaster to help achieve this?

    The man's not an idiot... he's a revolutionary working to destroy this nation. Everything he's passed is going to have to be repealed. Hell, everything new back to at LEAST 2006 is going to have to be repealed for us to repair this nation.

    Well of course he want gas to be way expensive.

    AFter all. They must wean us of our addiction to oil. LOL

    What does it matter that lots of folks can't afford $7 a gallon gas.

    We can all go on Welfare when the jobs really dry up and we are all unemployed.

    Of course if that happens there won't be any money to fund the Clowns or the Govt. or Barry Boys left wing agenda.

    Hmmmm. Might be worth a shot at that. LOL

    And ween us onto.... nothing. There is nothing that can replace petroleum and fossil fuels.

    You can't ween a nation off a power source that is almost 100% dependent on for all transportation and a critical physical resource like plastic without having it's replacement ready to roll.

    obama gives ok to more offshore drilling
    Month later we have a major offshore oil leak.
    Obamas agenda has been to raise gas prices.
    He is very untrustworthy, I would not be surprised to find out that the obama adminastration had something to do with the oil rig explosion. I could be wrong many if not most will say I am wrong, chances are I am but this will happen when you have a President that remains closed to the public and lies when he say's he is transparent.

    Stop bothering Barry with such trivial things such as logic and common sense. His flux capacitor doesn't not comprehend it and does not care.
