The failed Obama administration has announced that it will release 30 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve over the next 30 days, citing a disruption in supply caused by the illegal war he started in Libya.
The administration said the uprising in Libya has resulted in a loss of about 1.5 million barrels of oil a day. The release comes as the United States approaches a period of high energy use in July and August.
The “strategic” reason for releasing this emergency supply? Obama’s sagging approval poll numbers.
Republicans have repeatedly slammed President Obama over the unusually high prices, and Obama himself has noted his poll numbers appear to rise and fall with the price of gasoline. Many political strategists say that voter anger over near-record oil and gasoline prices could be a determining factor in the 2012 elections.
Someone should inform Professor Dipshit that there’s a way to increase the amount of oil on the market that will last more than a month and without putting America’s security at risk. It’s called “Domestic Drilling.”
