Self-inflicted Damage Control

Self-inflicted Damage Control

Now that calling it “Putin’s Gas Tax” has once again failed to resonate with the American people, the Biden administration has returned to blaming the oil industry for failing to produce enough oil to address the self-inflicted damage to Biden’s cratering approval rating.

These people are so mindbogglingly craven.

Yesterday, the shrewish energy secretary, Green Energy Cheerleader Jennifer Granholm appeared on CNN to demand oil companies spend more money to increase oil production while she admitted the end goal of the administration is to shutter them all in a matter of years.

Why on earth would an oil company invest money in expanding production when the White House is acknowledging that the industry’s future is on the chopping block?

This administration’s damage control inevitably causes more damage. And all of that damage they’re failing to control is self-inflicted.

Meanwhile, the President who ran in 2020 on the promise that he would put an end to all drilling…

… is now begging the oil industry to pull his ass out of the fire by drilling more.

But rather than taking measures to create a stable economic environment, Biden is accusing them of price-gouging “in a time of war.”

Unless Biden is referring to his war on fossil fuels, what “time of war” is that dipshit talking about? The United States isn’t at war.

Then, his press secretary Karine Jean Pierre tried to guilt oil companies into increasing production and lower gas prices by claiming it was their patriotic duty.

I think you can see why Jesse Kelly refers to her as “Karine Diversity Hire.”

You know, the White House would have a better job at self-inflicted damage control if they just stopped inflicting the damage in the first place. But since that’s impossible for them, maybe they could at least stop pointing fingers, passing blame, and gaslighting the country, and instead simply REVERSE COURSE.

How about these douche-canoes be patriots for a change?

Put America first. Dismantle the bureaucratic roadblocks to US energy production, stop threatening to destroy the industry, and let American companies get the US energy sector up and roaring again.

But these guys are so ideologically blinded that this is not an option.

This is the fundamental problem with this entire administration. None of them is a problem-solver. Instead, this White House is populated by ideologues completely incapable of dealing with the self-inflicted damage their rigid ideology causes every single time.

And heading up this train wreck is a man who has no idea how to govern, is incapable of taking an ounce of responsibility for the self-inflicted damage he causes and is so far removed from the real world, he simply cannot grasp just how angry the American people have become.

Instead, he gets angry at us for not understanding how successful he’s been.

This is why the broken-down old crock remains convinced that his inflation-causing American Rescue Plan was so successful that he grew visibly angry when discussing it earlier this week:

He is right about one thing. He has changed people’s lives, only for the worst.

This isn’t Joe Biden lying, guys. He truly believes this.

He believes that his presidency hasn’t been a conga line of self-inflicted disasters. Deep down in that fetid stew he calls a brain, Joe is convinced that his presidency has been a roaring success.

And rather than reverse course and do the patriotic thing by putting this country and our economy ahead of his administration’s ridiculous Green Dream, Joe and his army of rigid ideologues will just keep careening toward the cliff and taking the entire country with them.

I thought I’d close with this astute, humorous observation from conservative columnist T. Becket Adams on Twitter last night:

in any other context, the story of the biden presidency would be pretty funny! man spends his entire professional life trying to win an office, only to finally do it and discover in the twilight of his life he’s comically unfit for the job.

you spent your entire adult life becoming something you’re actually really terrible at. you don’t get to pivot or switch careers. this is it! this is where decades of maneuvering and scheming landed you: way in over your head and with no exit.

    You have to hand it to the Dems. They use language SO much better than the Repubs.
    For instance, Xoe Beijing using the phrase, “Putin’s Price Hikes”.
    Have the Repubs thought about using the phrase “Biden’s Price Hikes”, something that the American people could/would readily identify with ???
    Nope, no creativity at all. They don’t fight dirty.

    Biden on energy policy (and every other one). Grabs trusty shotgun, fires his two shots, and blows both of his feet off. Decides to put said feet in his mouth (both physically and metaphorically) for safe keeping. Asked at WH press conference why he has his feet in his mouth, he angrily yells “Putin did it”! As for his other recent angry utterance on reckless spending, he actually said “we’re ruining people’s lives”. Duplicitous Joe, and his entire “administration”, have really upped the ante on a possible catastrophe for the US, as they all represent the Peter Principle taken to the n’th degree.

    Stupid Adam for picking that apple. It’s all Putin’s fault.

    It is so disingenuous to take issue with the oil companies making record profits. What do you think happens when you stop spending on exploration and development and let all that money fall to the bottom line?

    it’s always about money. they’re all in on this “climate change” scam and they are NOT going to give it up without a fight. the granholm bitch just bought a bunch of stock in electric car companies and clean energy companies
    from america rising
    “Jennifer Granholm serves in leadership roles and owns stock in several electric vehicle companies that are likely to benefit from the Biden administration’s energy agenda. “Among [Granholm’s] biggest assets are $1 million to $5 million worth of stock options she can exercise in Proterra Inc…”
