I don't think he is correct. HIgh gas prices are really just a hot-button issue for the opposition. Obama can't do anything about high gas prices just like Bush couldn't do anything about high gas prices. Although Bush was an oil man so perhaps he didn't want to try very hard.Kilmoll the Sexy wrote:On the other hand, he is standing up and lying to the people here about not being able to do a thing about the gas prices. Newt has said he could get them down to 2.50 and Newt is correct on this one.
Regardless.. I believe Newt is just blowing smoke up peoples ass and telling them what they want to hear. What he says and what he can do are wo different things. Hell, elect me and I'll get gas down to $1 a gallon! See how easy that is? OPEC pretty much controls (most of) the show and the can raise and lower the cost per barrel whenever they want. I don't see what Newt could possibly do about that. Oh wait I know.. Ram the oil sands pipeline down our throats. That should solve the problem.
