Obama White House: Who’s responsible for high gas prices? The JOOOOZ!!

Oh, honest to Pete! Once again, it’s “hug your enemies and slap your friends:”

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.

This is ridiculous. Blaming Israel for high gas prices is like blaming a man for finally standing up to the gang of thugs who’ve been threatening his neighborhood and family — “if only he wouldn’t provoke them, they’d leave us alone!” his spineless, querulous neighbors cry.

Iran’s government and military are dominated by the followers of a militant strain of Islam who see it as their duty to bring about the Islamic End Times in order to institute a global theocracy. Part and parcel of this is eternal hatred of and war against the Jews. They are developing nuclear weapons. Their leaders have openly speculated about how one bomb could destroy the Jewish state and have called for wiping Israel from the map. Recently, a high-ranking Iranian official produced an analysis justifying the annihilation of Israel under Islamic law.

And yet Israel is to blame for increased gas prices and harming the president’s reelection chances (1) because, for some strange reason, they make it clear they’re not going to let their people be slaughtered again and they take steps to do something about it.

How dare they??

Now, I’m not one of those who think the government has total control over fuel prices; external factors, such as the law of supply and demand the progressives so wish they could ignore, play a huge role. China’s appetite for oil is enormous, and they’re buying a lot. And the threat of disruptions to global supply –created by Iran’s maniac actions– also drive up prices because of the increased risk in extracting and transporting oil from the Gulf.

BUT…

The administration’s policies still have a major effect: the open hostility toward exploration and extraction on federal lands; the slow-walking of permits already in the works; the refusal to issue new ones; and the refusal to obtain oil from friendly, stable, next-door neighbors. All these affect fuel prices because the price is as much about expectations of future supply as it is about current stocks. A more liberal, rational, and intelligent resource-development policy that would use safe modern technology would inevitably cause a dampening of prices because of the expectation of greater, more secure future supply.

BUT…

We can’t do that, because Obama is dependent on radical environmentalists for donations and campaign help, and his administration has invested too much (literally) in “alternative energy” to back away. So, the president needs a scapegoat. Now, who’s handy? Hmmm…

Enter the Jews Israelis. Tailor-made for President Short-Pants’ needs.

UPDATE: This must be Israel’s fault, too: “Thanks to Obama’s “no” on Keystone, the price of Canadian crude will go up for the U.S.

    3 reasons for high gas prices: obama obama obama

    1)obama for fighting the keystone pipeline

    2)obama for giving billions of treasure to failing green tech companies even when he was warned they were HIGH risks

    3)obama for fighting the expansion of drilling in USA waters & land.

    PS

    …and obama for not supporting pro-democracy groups in iran & for supporting the rebels in the arab spring revolutions that have made the middle east more in the hands of radical islam than ever before.

    Well, at least he ain’t blamin’ Bush…….yet.

  3. Great White Rat says:

    Just give him time, Joseph.

    So help me out here….I thought it was the Arab spring, and the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. And the “1%”. And Wall Street.

    So are the Jooooos more responsible than the tsunami, and less responsible than Wall Street? Or are they more responsible than the 1% and less responsible than the Arab spring? Or is the tsunami more responsible than the Jooooos ad less responsible than the 1%??

    It’s hard to keep score when playing Excuse Of The Day.

    This PRESENTdent’s foreign policy is straight out of Mein Kampf!

  5. EBL says:

    Not directly on point, but related in a way…

    Dani Gilbert’s family should be horrified.

    And Debbie Wasserman Schultz. No surprise it is someone connected to her.

  6. NANCY says:

    He needs to scapegoat someone for his dismal performance as President. I guess he’s getting bored of Sarah Palin.

    Oh well, if America comes to its senses, Obama can take over Keith Olbermann’s job from whatever network that will fire him next.

    November cannot get here soon enough to suit me. How many of us are using the administrations 40 buck a month tax “decrease” for a weeks worth of gas? Gee thanks for nothing. I thought I despised Billy Bob Clinton, but this man deserves no respect for what he is doing to the American People. – Lorica

  8. mitch says:

    in my lifetime, I have never seen anyone manipulate the media and distort the facts to suit his own agenda as much as this man. Our Founders were sent here by our Creator to establish a Godly nation. This man was sent here by the Devil himself to destroy it. He seems to be doing a good job of it at the moment.

  9. Drew the Infidel says:

    I must say I have never seen anyone like Obhammud; and if the Good Lord is good to me, I never will again.

  10. Kate says:

    Unfortunately the dunderheads who elected His Obamaness will vote for him again because they have been told that he’s the only one they can trust….with the help of the MSM and liberal moonbats.

    All the evidence in the world against his policies and practices will not see the light of day in most cases because the agenda is to get him re-elected. I expect more of the same this election cycle….I pray for anyone who runs against Obama. After what they did to Sarah Palin, I am not sure how much more negative they can go. Sarah, the plucky woman that she is, had the ability to turn that pig’s ear into a silk purse, though.

  11. WhyNot says:

    Interesting. Didn’t realize fascism was THIS rampant in the US.

  12. Quietwolf says:

    The time has come to deal with Obama and Iran. One with the ballot the other with the “bullet”. Both are a threat to the US and both will receive their final gifts in 2013. All we can do till then is try to limit their effects.

  13. Carlos says:

    Of course it’s us Jooos. Always has been, from the days the Egyptians made them slaves to the Russian pogroms to Obama’s socialist forerunners in Nazi Germany to today.
