Obama’s Latest Scapegoat For Gas Prices: Israel
He really wants to blame anyone except himself and anything except his own energy policies for higher gas prices:
The Obama administration is blaming Israel for the recent rise in global crude oil prices, according to a Sunday report in The World Tribune. The rise in fuel prices is deemed as harming the U.S. economy and has also hurt Obama in the polls as he seeks re-election in November.
The report cited a leading U.S. analyst, Robert Satloff, who returned from talks with Israeli officials.
Satloff, executive director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said, according to The World Tribune, that the Israeli leadership saw Washington as attributing the higher gas prices to “Israel’s posturing” on Iran.
Right. Israel’s well-founded fear of an Iranian strike doesn’t exist in the world Obama inhabits, they’re just “posturing,” presumably because they don’t want Obama re-elected. This man must think the sun revolves around him, and those around him in his Administration seem to share that view. It has nothing to do with Obama stopping the Keystone XL pipeline, calling for higher taxes on oil companies, or the infamous “permitorium.”
