President Obama has spent the lions share of the last few weeks talking about the pain at the pump, making two main points: (1) that its not his fault, and (2) theres not much he can do about it. According to this survey, hes failing on both counts: just 26 percent of Americans approve of how the president is handling the pain at the pump. Whats more, a majority of Americans believes the Obama Administration can do something about high gas prices. Maybe its partly because Americans have been hearing the same old excuses out of President Obama and his party for years and they recognize that the longer politicians like the president continue to block responsible American energy production, the longer our nation will continue to suffer with high gas prices and limited energy security.
As is typically the case when its policies are under fire see: ObamaCare the Obama White House is doubling down on its marketing efforts. Today the president will try selling his energy successes, a head-scratcher of move that will certainly come as a surprise to families, nonprofit organizations, and small business owners struggling with the pain at the pump.
The White House is also releasing a new report that doesnt offer much new, just again attempts to take credit for increased domestic energy production, a claim that has been thoroughly debunked by independent voices. No amount of misleading talking points can hide the president’s record of consistently blocking American energy production, including personally lobbying members of Congress just days ago to block a Keystone XL pipeline jobs amendment in the Senate.
With the pain at the pump showing no sign of letup, Americans are looking for solutions not excuses and Republicans are delivering with a real all-of-the above energy policy as part of a pro-growth jobs plan.
