If I were a betting woman, I’d make the following bet with President Obama – and if any Dem takes the wager, I’ll become a betting woman! In a childish, unpresidential tone, President Obama mocked Republicans saying we have a three point plan for bringing down gas prices; drill, drill, drill.
I’m challenging Pres. Obama or Any Democrat with the guts to take this wager…
If I can come up with a three point plan for lowering gas prices that does not even mention drilling, you (the Democrat) have to make a maximum contribution to the candidate of my choice. If I can’t come up with such a plan, I will personally give a maximum contribution to the campaign of your choice.
Why would I risk having to contribute to Debbie Wasserman or Nancy Pelosi’s Reelection?!
Well, any poker player knows the answer… I have a strong hand. I know I can come up with a three point plan for lowering gas prices that does not mention the word “drill”. I can come up with a plan that does not have anything to do with the economically sound move of drilling our own national resources … a move that would also strengthen our national security. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist getting that in there!)So here’s my plan:OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) sets oil prices based on the U.S. dollar. Oil is traded in that currency as well. As our currency is devalued, the price of oil goes up. Economics 101 tells us what to do:
Bottom-line: Serious steps towards economic stability will strengthen the dollar. When the dollar grows stronger, gas prices will go down!!!
Pres. Obama is either flat out lying when he says there is nothing he can do to lower gas prices other than drilling, or he doesn’t understand how gas prices are set or how our economy works. The election may have made Barack Obama President, but it didn’t make him Presidential. What can you do with this tid-bit of knowledge? YOU can interject this truth into the course of public debate. Remind people that President Obama is directly to blame for sky rocketing gas prices because he has destroyed the value of the dollar!! Middle class Americans pay the price for Obama’s failed policies… literally.
Together, you and I can start to unite around one effort… making sure President Obama is a one term president! God Bless,-Christine O’Donnell
