Where did all the Democrats go?
Ah I remember it like it was just 20 or so months ago when then President H.W. Bush and the Republican party was pilloried before the Nation for Gas hitting $3.00 a gallon.
Every Democrat in the Country was searching out anyone with a camera so they can lay the blame firmly at the feet of then President Bush.
I remember their impassioned pleas of Americans are being hurt, almost tearing up over the hardship our citizens were facing.
So where are they now?
The National Average Gasoline Price has hit an average of $3.16 a gallon Authors edit National Average now $3.30 per gal.
Higher then it was with Bush as President when he left office. You may or may not remember that the price
for crude oil was $40.00 a barrel when Bush left office. What is the price today after almost 2 years of Obama's leadership?
Well it hit $99.02 at the end of trading and is expected to go much, much higher.
Many analyst predict crude can easily hit and surpass $125 per barrel or more by July of this year and by July we could be paying at least $4.00 a gallon.
With Obama's stance on drilling and his moratorium on drilling oil rich areas of the Gulf and off both coast we can expect no relief. If Libya goes up in flames and ceases oil production (which is already occurring), as well as, the rest of the Middle East we will see a oil crunch that will make the 70's look like the Golden days.
So just where are the Democrats?
