As Americans struggle to fill their tanks amid a relentless surge of gas prices thanks to the fiscal policies of our cognitively deficient President, Joe Biden is doing all he can to skirt blame and save face.
Let’s face it: This is all about the 2022 midterm elections and the 2024 presidential election. Biden’s urgency in finding a solution to the gas price crisis is merely a function of mitigating losses in November.
On multiple occasions, as recently as Monday, the Biden administration has admitted that high gas prices should result in the total transformation of the U.S. economy into a ‘green new deal’ globalist monstrosity. Energy Sec. Jennifer Granholm has urged Americans to purchase electric vehicles as soon as possible if they wish to bypass the fallout from high gas prices.
That’s a big ask from an administration whose policies make it unnecessarily difficult to make a living.
Meanwhile, Biden continues to search for a perfect scapegoat and on Wednesday decided on a new plan of attack.
In a White House address, a decrepit Joe Biden launched invectives at gas stations across America, urging them to lower prices despite historically-high oil prices and a busted supply chain.
“To the companies running gas stations and setting those prices at the pump, this is a time of war, global peril, Ukraine,” he said.
“These are not normal times. Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you are paying for the product,” Biden said. “Do it now. Do it today.”

You can watch his full address below — if you can stomach it:
The mentally retarded President complained that while the price for oil has reduced ever so slightly, gas stations have failed to lower prices. Biden, again, demonstrated a severe lack of understanding of how real businesses are operated.
Not everyone can profit off their influence in the federal government, Joe!
“I’m doing my part,” he said defensively. “I want the congress, states, the industry to do their part as well,” Biden pleaded, as he suggested a gas tax holiday.
Biden again tried to blame Russian President Vladimir Putin for the high cost of gas, even though prices rose significantly before Russia invaded Ukraine.
He then implied that Americans can either choose higher gas prices or deal with Putin’s “iron fist” in Europe — a very easy choice for a majority of Americans.
“Are you saying we would rather have low gas prices in America than Putin’s iron first in Europe?” he asked.

The resounding answer online from Republicans and Democrats alike was a resounding “YES!”
Meanwhile, a recent survey showed that only 11% of Americans blame Putin for high gas prices, while 52% blame Biden.
Sounds about right!
