Hooray! Obama’s Going to Sue Our Way to Lower Gas Prices
In order to slow soaring gas prices Barack Obama has turned to the Justice Department.
Makes perfect sense, huh?
Barack Obama said the Justice Department will try to “root out” cases of fraud or manipulation in oil markets.
President Barack Obama said Thursday that the Justice Department will try to “root out” cases of fraud or manipulation in oil markets, even as Attorney General Eric Holder suggested a variety of legal reasons may be behind gasoline’s surge to $4 a gallon.
“We are going to make sure that no one is taking advantage of the American people for their own short-term gain,” Obama said at a town-hall style meeting at a renewable energy plant in Reno, Nev.
The town hall was sandwiched in between Obama’s four fundraising events in California on Thursday — one in San Francisco and three in Los Angeles. The president was holding six fundraisers over the course of his three-day West Coast trip, aimed at high-dollar donors and young people, both of whom will be integral to a campaign that could set fundraising records.
And, that is just one more reason why community organizers don’t make good presidents.
