Five Energy & Gas Prices Questions for President Obama

Congressman John Boehner
March 7, 2012

President Obama has a lot to answer for when he faces the White House press corps today, starting with skyrocketing gas prices.  Actually, it was at a press conference nearly a year ago that the president said his administration was doing everything we can to address the pain at the pump.  Things have only gotten worse since, and now the president finds himself firmly on the defensive in the face of a coordinated Republican offensive:
Republicans have seized on rising gas prices as a political weapon against President Obama. The GOP messaging plan has been to paint Obama on the wrong side of energy independence. From speeches to Capitol stakeouts to op-eds, top Republicans have been hammering this notion on a daily basis over the last few weeks, blaming the president for rising gas prices and citing his rejection of the Keystone pipeline and various other House GOP deregulation bills as evidence that he opposes domestic energy production.    [President Obama]  has adopted the all of the above energy rhetoric that Republicans have used for years. (Talking Points Memo, 3/5/12)
