Obama Blames Koch Bros for GAS PRICES?!

This is just beyond the pale. Oh wait, I shouldn’t use the word “pale”, it’s probably a racist dog-whistle!

This campaign email came out from Jim Messina, the idiot campaign manager who previously mocked Latinos, under the subject heading, “They’re obsessed”:

In just about 24 hours, Mitt Romney is headed to a hotel ballroom to give a speech sponsored by Americans for Prosperity, a front group founded and funded by the Koch brothers.

Those are the same Koch brothers whose business model is to make millions by jacking up prices at the pump, and who have bankrolled Tea Party extremism and committed $200 million to try to destroy President Obama before Election Day.

So in the hours before Romney courts two men obsessed with making Barack Obama a one-term president, let’s see how many of us can chip in to the Two-Term Fund.

Here’s what Mitt Romney told his supporters just after his victory in the Florida GOP primary:

“We must not forget what this election is really about: defeating Barack Obama.”

So the Obama’s Truthiness Team thinks their political rivals are “obsessed” because they actually want to defeat him! What a bunch of weirdos! Political rivals have never wanted to defeat each other in American society before!!!

I guess that makes Wall Street “obsessed” with electing Obama, right?

And where did they find the secret information that the Koch brothers’ business model depends on increasing prices at the pump? Just incredible, considering the Obama administration has done so much damage to the oil production industry in America, while taking credit for the increase of production that Bush was responsible for! For once, he’s not blaming Bush!

Further, at a press conference just yesterday, Obama’s press secretary Jay Carney whined that the Obama wasn’t to blame for high prices, but the global market is. So apparently the WORLD is in collusion with the Koch Brothers, in a conspiracy to destroy Obama!

“There are no magic solutions to rising oil prices,” said White House press secretary Jay Carney. “The rising gas prices clearly the effect of a variety of factors on the global price of oil,” he told reporters, citing geopolitical unrest and rapid growth in India and China.

There are no magic solutions, except for those found in plant-like substances like algae – that’s where we’ll solve our problems, not drilling for oil! I think this admin is on some other plant-like substance…

Is this some kind of secret plan to lull us into a false sense of security that they’re such morons, there’s no way they can win in November? It’s working!!
