On the -- will never be gone here right.
It outright -- you're here yes our rights does gas prices rise faster than kids on Christmas morning it makes you wonder.
Was this part of the plan all along of course if you see that -- sound like a conspiracy freak.
But maybe that's what they want -- sound like after all let's remember what president Obama's energy secretary Steven Chu said about conserving fuel he said quote.
Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.
-- Europe once again America the greatest country ever adopts the also -- plan.
And then there's Obama himself who might -- said that under his plan of a Cap and Trade System electricity prices would necessarily skyrocket.
Or maybe I -- to.
Under my plan.
Of a Cap and Trade System.
Would necessarily skyrocket.
No I didn't dream it I call this Starbucks up socialism tackling consumption by making it too -- it's expensive to consume.
If you're disgusted by America's gluttony use pricing to hinder use which then reduces productivity.
And then even less consumption and we end up where the left wants us Belgium without those back.
Happening waffles and -- saying Obama -- -- gas crisis he's just not that worked up over it.
No wonder he put the caribou before me -- you by mixing that XL pipeline.
But every now and then the curtain parts -- -- -- into a party's true soul this was back.
The hard left hates our success hates capitalism that won't rest until we got European irrelevance.
And now European gas prices which is most pointless export from Europe since Russell Brand.
Help us live -- is an excellent question.
OK what can I correct the record year for wanting to get serious for -- aren't that answers.
But the energy secretary.
That question came up during his confirmation here and and he addressed to dead and he said if you took the entire statement that he said he said unless we get an energy policy that works were going to have to get prices -- are in Europe.
That is frankly was a quote out of context which is unusual for you Greg -- It out of -- is that -- that sentiment.
That's not that -- -- -- attributed to him but that sentiment about.
Wanting to increase prices here's a bit in the decreased demands of the you could but -- address global warming that was.
Liberal position for a long time there are there are group -- Those who believe that's true that it doesn't that doesn't have it but he made that foreigners GAAP measures that was -- president Obama's position.
Ed I think frankly that and then XL pipeline to Europe -- there yet turn a pitcher you -- get.
Does article yet the pipeline.
I Carney said it would hundreds -- -- that -- and script that secrets here but he said that the president was thinking about the pipeline.
I will guarantee you that they're gonna announce support for the pipeline before the election with a slightly altered -- You watch while they shot a day hopefully they well because number one at a price drop yet fuel prices oil prices gasoline prices -- to create a budget jobs into areas where.
Both are Obama's Achilles heel he's got left leg being the jobs in the rightly -- -- -- gas price so that -- -- by the way.
Hopefully it doesn't take credit for the XL pipeline if he does it -- because B because a lot on the right have pushed him out and while wearing hats is -- -- -- -- That he's gonna make that announcement is gonna say that Eric bowling have got -- have.
I've front -- -- gonna go a -- look can you can you get this gas price -- you're an expert on this I understand that but the fact is.
That -- what going on and ran over which we have very little control which going -- -- which we should talk about more frankly is is causing this to the crap pricing system up.
Now why would I don't know why wanna -- that that is why doesn't it got.
Egyptian red Fiat and -- in Asia didn't make natural gas prices go up we use a lot of natural gas currently Arnold like oh yeah and we have a lot of crude oil to oh.
Let's not that -- only that but just but it's not seek.
It also that the president has been openly hostile to fossil fuels his tax plan released.
Recently goes after oil companies and when you after oil companies.
And you try and take away their tax -- that just gets passed along to the consumer every -- And a lot of and a lot of older folks and myself included have retirement mutual funds in oil companies -- -- right equipment failure not that old and secondly the fact is we've got to start to -- -- -- gonna run out of cannot -- I'd run that -- tape that wanna I wanna tell you -- have and obviously that's all right -- Israel will quick.
-- The president didn't turn down Keystone Pipeline.
-- was a process in place.
Long with long precedent.
Run out of the State Department because of the issue of the pipeline crossing international boundary.
This required and an amount of time for proper review after an alternate route was.
Deemed it necessary.
By the way that route goes right -- my apartment.
Here's a big if if Obama until the pipeline didn't like you need to start construction tomorrow I think that that was a of the -- and unfortunately fly them.
And in trying this new argument that he didn't -- pipeline.
That the stories are even written on everybody believes that he did and in fact when he did he made a statement saying.
I've I'm gonna I'm not gonna move forward with this pick if if they will do we can do -- tomorrow and in fact.
A new route was proposed it doesn't go through your apartment and in fact the governor of Nebraska which was.
Problem there it was a route that was offered by congressional Republicans and in conjunction with the Nebraska governor.
So -- could do it tomorrow if they want.
You know our assumptions and everybody in America knows about this -- when he announces the pipeline.
That this story will be forgotten and that will be his automatic big Republican point -- -- big ya gotta have no idea what you're never gonna Harry could -- we're gonna -- time but I'd I'd have gas at the business I had a business of distributing -- buying gasoline bring negative from over.
From overseas selling it.
You know that there are were formulating -- -- there are actually oxygenated -- detergent regulations specific vapor pressure bland summer -- went to Brett -- summer East Coast winds West Coast plan get does what are.
I have away I'm telling you how I did I wanna do and I'm here because I want you attribute this to me.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Signature by a bomb all he has to do is say.
One -- gas drops in those one went for the whole country -- -- matter if you're in Chicago West Coast East Coast all year round.
Given -- shot give it a shot it can't hurt the environmentalists you just have to put it up take a deep breath and safe for now it's more you know highest ridership is up now.
-- about that because they do have a blend them and had blown the upper midwest north that they had a mixed in certain Jordan style and it turns out he didn't work and a dvd in her story -- location and they they they backed off of that and things into worker.
That's up there's -- we agreed on some but he still but he still pushing his Green energy I guarantee you this line -- every president is at.
We didn't get into this problem overnight we're not gonna solve it overnight there's no matter if we want there's no several bullet guaranteed it's into sites -- -- got -- back so we're okay.
-- worried about.
Nothing okay coming up our pro lifers evil bigots that's the claim one -- Planned Parenthood -- is making.
