At the same time, these officials, who briefed reporters Tuesday on the president’s plans, acknowledged that there is almost nothing the president can do in the near term to lower gas prices

If he resigned, the economy would improve overnight.

Yep, another speech full of “Bush’s fault”, “can’t drill our way out”, “all of the above approach”, “I feel your pain”, “we’re all in this together”, “there’s no magic bullet”, etc,,,,

He’s going to say how much he’s opened up for exploration offshore......

On Jan. 26, during a speech in Las Vegas, President Obama said, “We’ve opened millions of new acres for oil and gas exploration. Right now, American oil production is the highest that it’s been in eight years. Eight years. Last year, we relied less on foreign oil than in any of last 16 years. We’re moving in the right direction when it comes to oil and gas production.
“And today, I’m announcing that my administration will soon open up around 38 million acres in the Gulf of Mexico for additional exploration and development, which could result in a lot more production of domestic energy,” he added.
But, are these really “new” acres for oil and gas exploration and production? The acres are not new according to the National Oil Industries Association (NOIA).
“We’re pleased to hear that the long delayed Central Gulf of Mexico sale will finally occur in June. Sales are an essential step in providing much needed American jobs and energy, not only in the Gulf of Mexico, but across the country,” said Randall Luthi, NOIA president.
“However, this sale has been on the books since 2007 under the current five-year plan. It’s nothing new, nor is the claim that 75% of the resources on the OCS are open to development. It is just smoke and mirrors to hide the fact that we’re still exploring in the same areas we have been for the past 30 years,” he emphasized.
On the Dept. of the Interior’s website, it was noted that the agency manages 1.7 billion underwater acres of Outer Continental Shelf. Let’s see, 75% of that is 1.27 billion acres. And, Pres. Obama was bragging about 38 million acres (2.2%) in the Gulf of Mexico. And, most of that acreage has been offered multiple times.

...particularly his administration’s decision to postpone the construction of the Keystone pipeline.

This author needs a little trip over to the Ministry of Truth. Today Jay "Sideshow" Carney said Obama didn’t cancel the Keystone pipeline Republicans did. She should have tossed all old manuscripts in the Memory Hole when she came in to work this morning.

It never stops galling me, how in the spring, and in the fall, energy prices rise, and our "experts" in government ALWAYS cite "an unforeseen spike in demand."

IDIOTS.

It gets old in winter, so people need heating oil...duh!

People want to drive in the spring for vacation...duh!

What a wimpy statement. Discussing the steps we can take? How a bout a plan laid out that actually has milestones in it rather than sticking your finger in the wind? Discuss what steps we can take...Yeah right. Just more "community organizing" bullshit from this administration.

Obama can stand in front of a gas station sign showing $4.29 and tell the media the price is coming down because of his policies and they will not only believe it; they will air it multiple times.

...and the viewers - THEY'LL LAP IT UP!

Three years ago they told us they couldn’t do anything because it would take 5 to 10 years to bring new wells on line. They obstruct and then tell us there’s nothing they can do as if we don’t remember they they are the reason for the problem.

No need for anyone here to suffer through the Kenyan Usurper's gas speech. I tell you what's in it.

Obama will say that he's creating a "Blue Ribbon" commission to study why fuel prices are so high. He'll demand that Congress provide hundreds of millions of dollars to fund the "commission". The "Commission" will consist of RINO retread former congress people, Democrat environmentalist wackos, and some of Obama's friends who will get paid millions of dollars "serving" on the "Commission." The Commission's "report will come out after the November election and will as usual blame Bush and the evil, greedy oil companies for charging so much for fuel.

Obama will then recommend imposing price controls on gasoline, diesel and home heating oil. And then he will have to appoint a "Fuel Czar" to oversee the mess he's creating. He might even try Jimmy Carter's scheme of odd/even day's for Americans to purchase gasoline. Or maybe he'll just try to restrict Americans to one fill-up per week.

Jay Carney: Hey, Obama didn’t cancel the Keystone pipeline, Republicans did

Carney: GOP cancelled Keystone, not Obama

Obama's handlers are taking "It's the Republicans' fault" out for a spin.

They finally realized, "It's Bush's fault" is wearing thin.
