Last Wednesday, a scolding, insufferable President Biden stood on his faux White House stage set and lectured the country about the high cost of gas while blaming it on Putin, the Oil Industry, and even mom & pop gas station owners.
The only time Biden mentioned taking any blame himself was when he lectured Republican lawmakers for blaming him.
The excuse-making Chief Executive pretty much accused anyone blaming him for the high cost of gas of being a Putin stooge.
Biden claimed that high gas prices were the result of Putin’s war in Ukraine and lectured Republicans asking if they were “saying we were wrong to support Ukraine and stand up to Putin.”
No matter how much his “Putin’s Price Hike” talking point fails to resonate among voters, Biden just can’t stop himself.
He then asked Republicans if they would rather have lower gas prices here “and Putin’s iron fist in Europe?”
Biden: "For all Republicans criticizing me for high gas prices in America, are you now saying we were wrong to support Ukraine and stand up to Putin? Are you saying that we'd rather have lower gas prices in America than Putin's iron fist in Europe?" pic.twitter.com/Z7U8YIFgnM— Greg Price (@greg_price11) June 22, 2022
The lengths this man will go to avoid taking any responsibility for his actions.
Like everyone else in this administration, Joe Biden pretends that gas prices weren’t already skyrocketing long before Russia invaded Ukraine.
But try as he might, Americans aren’t buying his excuses anymore.
A Rasmussen survey last week found that only 11 percent of respondents blame Vladimir Putin for higher gas prices while the majority, 52 percent, blame Joe Biden’s energy policies.
It wouldn’t matter if 100 percent of Americans thought “Putin’s Price Hike” was utter garbage. Joe Biden would still parrot the talking point.
This is the man who, in 2020, vowed that, unlike Donald Trump, he would always “take responsibility instead of blaming others.”
Well, he lied. And that’s probably Putin’s fault too.
