On Defense: POTUS Schedules Energy Tour to Explain Why Gas Prices Have Doubled on His Watch
Topics: President Barack Obama
Congressman John Boehner

The taxpayer-funded expedition will take President Obama to Cushing, OK a key point along the popular Keystone XL pipeline, which he rejected and personally lobbied against where he will make a show of his support for the part of the pipeline that didnt need his approval and is moving forward with it.
But this weeks costly dog-and-pony show isnt likely to fool anyone. The president wants the American people to think his policies have nothing to do with rising gas prices, but the facts tell a different story:
No wonder a new survey from The Hill found 68 percent of Americans believe Obamas policies will result in gasoline prices increasing, and a plurality believe they will cause the United States to become even more dependent on foreign oil. Similar surveys by ABC News/ Washington Post and CBS News/New York Times show overwhelmingly disapproval for the way the president is handling gas prices.
While the president and Democrats are scrambling and playing defense, Republicans are working to remove barriers to American energy production and stop policies that drive up gas prices.
