I couldn’t help by chuckle when I heard Karine Jean-Pierre describe the recent decline in gasoline prices as “exciting”, claiming that the price was heading to $4 a gallon.
It got me thinking, which is usually a dangerous thing.
Joe Biden has consistently blamed others for the rising gas prices that have soared in some places to over $7 a gallon. He blamed COVID. He blamed Donald Trump. He’s blamed Vladimir Putin. He’s blamed the Saudis. He’s blamed everyone but himself. Though he hasn’t mentioned that he’s made it damn near impossible to pump oil in this country. That, after Donald Trump put policies in place that allowed America to become an energy exporter for the first time I can recall.
So, if it was everybody’s fault BUT Joe Biden’s that gas prices were on the rise, how can it be Joe Biden is the savior and responsible for the lowering of the gas prices? If he didn’t raise them, but all of these outside sources were the cause of it, how can he take credit for lowering it? It just doesn’t make sense. I mean, if he could lower gas prices, as Jean-Pierre is claiming, then why did he let the price of gas get so high in the first place? If you can lower something, you can lower it. If it’s getting too high, why didn’t he stop it sooner?
Of course, the quick and easy answer is, he could have but he doesn’t want gas prices to go down. He wants gas prices to stay inflated. But he realized (or his staff realized since they are the ones calling the shots), that he went too far. America is far from ready to accept European gasoline prices. When the price of gas gets over $3 a gallon the country starts going into panic mode. When it tops $5, the gloves come off. At $7, there’s a revolution.
All of this seems to be a moot point because it looks like Biden and his Democrat buddies are heading for a tumultuous fall come November. I know they are trying everything they can find to try and get you to stop thinking about the economy. It doesn’t seem to be working. Yes, they are still blaming Donald Trump for the whole January 6th protest thing at the Capitol building. Yes, they are trying to pack the court, hold protests over the Dobbs v. Jackson SCOTUS ruling, and the whole idea to come up with something to get your mind off of the lousy job they’ve done since 2021. I really doubt at this point it’s too late to right the ship. There are so many bad things happening in our society today that even if Biden or the idiots in Congress could wave a magic wand and make them all disappear, they’d still probably lose.
But the liberals in the country seem determined to keep doubling down even though everyone at the table knows that they don’t even hold a pair of deuces in their hand. Yet, they want to go all in. They are content to die on the sword come November. I have no idea why they want to sink lower than they already are. Biden’s approval ratings are now well into the 30’s. He’s even touched the 20’s in some polls. And now, the word is that he won’t be running for reelection because of all of the problems. Word is that the one person that actually would have a shot of beating either Ron DeSantis or Donald Trump is thinking about putting out feelers…Michele Obama! Does she really want the headache? And if she were to win, could she actually fix Biden’s many mistakes or just make them all worse?
Karine Jean-Pierre needs to stick to the truth and call a spade a spade when she’s at the White House podium. We The People are tired of the lies.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
