Investor's Business Daily, a reliable analyst of matters political and economic, today makes the shocking charge that Barry Obama secretly wants high gas prices.
If gasoline prices so far are any indication, the pain at the pump will be severe this year. But if you think President Obama cares, you're wrong. If anything, he's secretly cheering it on.
Already, average pump prices have topped $3.50 a gallon, leading some experts to think they could reach an all-time high of $5 by the summer.
So what's Obama's response? He treats it like a badge of honor, saying this week that "gas prices are on the rise again because as the economy strengthens, global demand for oil increases."
We agree with IBD, but its no secret. We let that cat out of the bag a year ago.
The difference today is that Obama does not want lower gas prices - he wants higher gas prices. To Barry, your economic pain is a feature, not a bug. Don't expect any help from him.In the past year, Barry's been very successful in making the situation worse. Do your neighbors understand what's going on?
