Gas prices are high, which is the worst thing that’s ever happened in the history of America, dating back to the time of the dinosaurs. It’s a violation of the spirit of the Constitution of Independence as written by Jefferson Davis. We must declare preemptive war on gas prices before they destroy our freedoms, which they hate. Think of the children. How will they get to soccer practice?

"Buy the kid a bike," says the Blame America First crowd. Thankfully God-fearing politicians are not listening to that counsel of appeasement.

McCain was on the front lines of Operation Drive As Much As We Want, proposing a gas tax holiday earlier this month. After the typical Democrat waffling, Hillary Clinton signed on to the idea this week, much as she signed on to the Iraq War when political expedience patriotic duty moved her.

Or perhaps she was inspired by the example of the brave trucker warriors who descended on D.C. to drive around burning gas in protest of unconstitutional gas prices. ("The caravan’s organizers had expected to arrive in Washington at 9 a.m., but traffic and an accident caused a three-hour delay.")

Unfortunately, the Muslim elitist Barack Obama, who’s also widely rumored to be black, would surrender to gas prices. "This isn’t an idea designed to get you through the summer, it’s an idea designed to get them through an election," he said, probably quoting Michael Moore. Guess we know who high gas prices are voting for this November!

Unfortunately, Obama’s Surrender Plan has found support not only among the America-hating ranks of so-called "economists," but among this liberal media as well. Watch their unbalanced presentation:

Thankfully, Clinton isn’t letting Obama’s capitulation to basic economic theory Gas Terror go unpunished. She’s running an ad in upcoming primary states Indiana and North Carolina, taking Obama to task for his undemocratic refusal to give voters the ineffectual symbolism they demand:

Now it seems that Senate Democrats have finally woken to the Gathering Storm ($ub. req’d) of gas prices almost half of what they pay in Europe:

Senate Democrats vowed today that they would have a sweeping energy bill aimed at combating rising fuel costs ready by the end of the week.

Calling the effort a “work in progress,” Sen. Charles Schumer of New York said Democratic leadership was considering a measure that would provide a summer-long “gas tax holiday” …

Will Obama get the message? You’re either for driving as much as we want at a convenient low price … or you’re against it. Which side is he on?
