In early June, as the debate over rising gas prices was heating up, Barack Obama was quoted as saying:
I think that I would have preferred a gradual adjustment. The fact that this is such a shock to American pocketbooks is not a good thing.
The “Greenest convention ever” is touting their 450 vehicle fleet of cars, 20% of which will be E85 vehicles. Even though the host city is far behind in their fundraising efforts, they convinced Coors to kick in the fuel for the E85 vehicles.
Watch the relief on the DNC’s Director of Transportation as he describes the benefit of having E85 fuel donated:
Yup, you heard it right! Andrew Sullivan, Director of Transportation for the DNC said”
I’m always up for free gas! Especially with prices being what they are today!
Gas prices an issue for the DNC? How can that be?
If the DNC’s presumptive nominee has any say about it, today’s gas prices will look like a bargain in the near future. The combination of no increased drilling, increasing taxes on oil companies, implementing cap and trade and suing sovereign nations, will do nothing but increase gas prices and further erode the pocketbooks of every American family!
Over at Redstate.com the term COPEC has been coined. COPEC stands for “Congresspersons Opposed To Petroleum Extraction in our Country.” Seeing as how most of the Republicans have finally gotten the message on oil exploration and domestic production, I propose COPEC be changed to simply DOPES, Democrats Opposed to Petroleum and for Energy Sacrifice. It seems fitting that Barack Obama will be the Presidential nominee for the DOPES!
As a complete aside, isn’t every drop of beer Coors makes “waste beer?”
