Remember this quote from the Zero Administration?:

"...the White House has worked to get off the defensive over high gasoline prices, insisting that Obama has done everything he can to bring those costs down."  

We recently chronicled some of the ways Obama has worked to keep gas prices escalating, and now this, from the Washington Examiner:

"President Obama’s United States Department of Agriculture has delayed shale gas drilling in Ohio for up to six months by cancelling a mineral lease auction for Wayne National Forest (WNF). The move was taken in deference to environmentalists"


Mr. Obama, PLEASE STOP HELPING!

The "President" responded to the serf's complaints about high gas prices today in Florida:
"Only in politics do people root for bad news and they greet bad news so enthusiastically," he said (speaking about Republicans) in a combative speech at the University of Miami. "You pay more, and they're licking their chops."
"The defiant rhetoric came after days in which the White House has worked to get off the defensive over high gasoline prices, insisting that Obama has done everything he can to bring those costs down." 

Uh, would that be things like rejecting the Keystone XL pipeline? A project that would not only provide millions of barrels of oil to the US market, but 
"...would put 13,000 people to work building the pipeline and 118,000 spin-off jobs “through increased business for local goods and service providers.” - Forbes, 1/28/12

Or maybe he means shutting down oil production in the Gulf of Mexico?
"After the BP oil spill, Obama shut down all offshore oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, idling 78,000 jobs and cutting off billions of dollars of tax revenue to state and local governments in the Gulf Coast region.
After U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman found the Gulf moratorium without factual basis, Obama lifted it, granted no permits, then reinstated the same moratorium.  The same judge then found the second moratorium illegal and held the administration in contempt of court for ignoring the first order." 


He wants us to look at his words, despite his actions... 
"Obama said there were "no quick fixes" and "no silver bullets" to solve the situation and called for a "sustained, all-of-the-above" approach to develop domestic energy..."

...but it's not just oil Obama hates:

"A recent study by the American Consumer Institute concludes that coal, natural gas, nuclear, transmission infrastructure, and even renewables were among 351 energy projects delayed or canceled by Obama.  These projects represented 1.9 million jobs and an investment of $1.1 trillion." - HumanEvents.com


The "Great Leader" continued:
"Obama assured Americans that he feels their pain, saying the rise in gas prices "hurts everybody" and "means you've got to find even more room in a budget that was already tight."

Well, not HIS budget of course. Remember that Michelle and the girls are off skiing in Aspen, only a few short weeks after returning from holiday in Hawaii. In Obama's Amerika it's only the little people who suffer.
