And do you know who is then President ? The only person more daft than BIden.... The woman who giggles and spews out word salad like a self-conscious 4th grader.... I swear, she needs lessons to even breathe.

Assholes like that don't retire. They insist on dying in office.

Indeed.
As the founders planned…a citizen government.

Yes, but the bigger idiots by FAR are those that believe this. He's a salesman and that's what he's doing here. It's the ****in' brain-dead mouth breathers that worry me the most.

First, he's not the duly elected president.

Second, gas is still up about $2 a gallon more than when President Trump was in office.

In the same way, you blamed TRUMP for anything that changed or took place during his presidency. All of you liberals are the same, "I can do it, you can't," "all laws applicable to you, but not to the democratic party" GFY

Day one that he was in office, he enacted several exec orders, and shut down a few already in place. Killed the Keystone pipeline.

Only jokers look at these individual events and say things like, "the pipeline wouldn't carry enough cruse to help, and it was inferior crude". He shut down new leases at the same time saying that there already were enough out there. He claimed that the era of fossil fuels was ending, and we would adopt only clean energy investment.

I'm not sure you understand how this industry works... All drilling is done on a speculative basis, thus any investments need to be balanced against perceived gains. Investments went to near zero in gas and oil because nobody in their right mind would invest in something that POTUS stated he was going to end. So, when demand picked up, there was, pardon my pun, NOTHING in the pipeline to use as a recovery. We basically took the US offline and other nations took advantage of the lack of production. That's how you manipulate markets.

One thing I would agree with you on. Biden didn't do any of this because he is an absolute moron, unable to make any decisions without his lame ass administration handing him the cue card.

Please, enlighten us as to why Brandon said he doesn't control fuel and oil prices, yet takes all the credit when they drop 50 cents to what are still record highs. Enlighten us oh liberal one.

That $140 is more than I spend a year on gasoline with three vehicles. Does that mean he's going to pay me to drive? Sweet.
