(Via Instapundit) Don’t get your hopes up; the
goofball Senator goofball thinks that the problem is that the administration isn’t hands-on enough when it comes to regulating away all those obscene gas profits*. Still, Bill Nelson is criticizing an administration that doesn’t like being criticized… which tells you quite a bit on how shaky Florida must be seeming to the Democrats these days.
Also, this bit from the article is entertaining, for possibly obscure reasons:
Obama has focused on alternative energy and other long-term strategies to bring down gas prices by decreasing demand.
Many republicans say prices will drop if we increase the supply.
Starting in 2007 (Congress going Democratic) and accelerating in 2009 (Obama taking office), we’ve been trying the first strategy more and more. …So, how is that working out for people? I’m personally finding that it kind of sucks as a cost-cutter, frankly.
*In 2011 Exxon claimed that they make two cents a gallon on gasoline. Somewhere in that range between dueling soundbites is the real profit margin, I’m sure.
