Recently the President breezily dismissed his slumping poll numbers as a product of high gas prices. Like everything else in Obama's world, if it's bad it has nothing to do with him.
As gas prices soar above $4/gallon, let's reflect:
Incoherent energy policy? Check.
Domestic oil production scheduled to start declining next year? Check.
Starting a senseless war with a Middle East oil state? Check.
Royally ticking off the Saudis? Check.
Energy secretary who once said "Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe." Check.
Insensitive "Let them drive Volts" moment to father with SUV. Check.
Yet another useless commission to take the place of real leadership. Check.
Now let's burn off a couple hundred tons of Air Force One jet fuel. Obama's gotta fly back from California to celebrate Earth Day.
Extra - Volokh: "Don't blame the speculators."
