Very loud rage.
LISTEN UP PANSIES! WingNutDaily star columnist and ultimate macho Chuck Norris would like you to know a few things!

President Barack Obama’s energy plan involves radically increasing gas prices to the European rate of $9-10 a gallon. And he’s well on his way by more than doubling prices at the pump since entering office in January 2009, when gasoline was only $1.79 per gallon. Here’s how he schemes to double prices again in his second term, with you footing the bill.

It is interesting that GOP stalwarts like Norris seem to think it is the president who controls oil prices, and do not seem to think that, say, the oil companies have anything to do with them, isn’t it? But you know, lalalawhatever.

How else has the government been plotting and conspiring and cabaling to make you bend over and take it? By acknowledging reality, that’s how! Here is Chuck Norris on Secretary of Energy Steven Chu nefariously explaining uncontroversial (?) facts in 2011. Chuck Norris will karate-chop your “facts,” Steven Chu!

In February 2011, Secretary Chu again embraced the strategy to raise gas prices in order to increase green alternatives to Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday, when he said, “The price of gasoline over the long haul should be expected to go up just because of supply and demand issues. And so we see this in the buying habits of Americans as they make choices for the next car they buy.”

It is nice to know that Chuck Norris is not one of those lazy pundits who do not keep up with the news. Nope, Chuck had all his browsers open last week, catching both the hysterical talking point about Chu not owning a car!!!1!1 and the Daily Caller’s total undermining of Steven Chu’s not owning a car, and combining them for one great big pile of Real American Primal Scream:

Speaking of misleading, this past week Energy Secretary Chu was at it again as he testified before the House Subcommittee on Energy and Power. Dodging its question about whether he practiced what he preached by owning a Chevy Volt electric car, Chu replied sheepishly, “No, I don’t own a car at the moment.” (Before you commend him for his bio-walking, it should be noted that he’s chauffeured in U.S. government Cadillac Escalades, which of course run off of fossil fuel like his wife’s BMW.)

Sums up Chuck Norris: “If you are ready for real change, if you want to stabilize our economy, increase jobs, lower gas prices and restore our republic simultaneously, then shout it out to Washington and the nation: ‘Get off your gas, drill and vote Newt Gingrich!’”

Sure, Chuck Norris. Will do.

      We could have that again if Obama would just let Republicans deregulate us back into another bad recession.

    • BigSkullF*ckingDog

      Evolution? How dare you!

    • memzilla

      Yeah, for about 30 seconds.

      Say, who was president in July 2008, when it was $4.28 a gallon? Anybody remember?

      • SoBeach

        I remember. But back in those days the president didn't personally control the price of gas, so what's your point?

        • DaRooster

          Only a Blah president can control gas prices.

        • My head hurts, again.

      • Yep! Gas prices peaked at the highest level in history in July 2008 while oilman Bush and oilman Cheney "who know how to talk to the Saudis" were running things. So either a) they were full of shit; b) they wanted high prices to reward their oil buddies; c) the president doesn't control oil prices.

        Anyway, prices dropped like a stone as demand fell due to the economic collapse — aka the Republican Economic Plan. They bottomed out pretty much the day Obama took office, creating this quasi-artificial datapoint for the haters.

      • MozakiBlocks

        In wingnut world, Bush the lesser was never President. We went straight from Bill to Barry. During the intervening 8 years, the US just disappeared into the either like Brigadoon.

        Therefore, anything that is wrong with this country now is the black guy's fault.

          Alloway, Katie.

        Senator Obama.

        Or maybe it was still Clinton.

        Hard to keep track of which Democrat is president when a Republican is president.

    • not that Dewey

      Last week, the RWNJ talking point was that gasoline was $1.81 when Nobama took office seized power. It's been falling steadily ever since. Can we go back in time and short-sell this fictitious price of gasoline?

    • It was, but that was because there was a massive financial collapse, or some shit. Who would have thought that widespread pessimism of future productivity would have a negative impact on some commodity prices, and that correspondingly, optimism in the same might cause prices to bounce back?

  • Schmannnity

    Oh sure, blame it on supply and demand, Chu. Price is unrelated to supply and demand in Republican think, just like cutting taxes reduces the deficit.

    • Oblios_Cap

      Relationships? How do they work?

      • Schmannnity

        That must be why he is supporting Gingrich, a specialist on relationships.

    • Supply goes up, demand goes down. You can't explain it.

      • Lascauxcaveman

        No, I think you just did. (sorta)

    • OneDollarJuana

      Actually, these days they are unrelated. The US has so much gasoline we are exporting it. We are producing more oil in the US than ever before. Yet the price keeps rising.

      • The truly ironic thing about all this "drill baby drill" idiocy is that it doesn't reduce our dependence or furrin oil. multinational oil companies, drilling in US waters, sell oil to the highest bidder. All that oil now destroying ecosystems in the gulf was destined for China, probably. Morans.

    • This time like last time, the high gas prices are a direct result of the threat to bomb Iran back into the stone age. That simple.

  • If we could only power our cars by Moronium, Chuck Norris would become a precious natural resource.

    • Ducksworthy

      Moronium is the precious excrement of the Mormon Angels. There are large deposits in Utah.

  • memzilla

    What part of "World Market" don't these wingtards understand?

    • World = The land defined by the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, along with our colonies, Mexico and Canada.

      • memzilla

        Look at Canada. Canada is a net energy exporter. Canada would seem to be what the wingtards dream for the US. Canada should be paying much less for its gasoline, by wingtard logic.


    • freakishlywrong

      All of it, Katie.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    We should elect Chuck Norris to be President, he could just karate-chop those gas prices in half.

    • Hell, he could just give them a nasty look.

      • DaRooster

        And the blacks prices would go back down where they should be.

    Why doesn't Chuck Norris just fix the gas prices himself? I've been led to believe he is very powerful.

    • ttommyunger

      That would be his breath, I understand.

  • SexySmurf

    The price of gasoline over the long haul should be expected to go up just because of supply and demand issues. And so we see this in the buying habits of Americans as they make choices for the next car they buy.

    Sounds like an editorial right out of the Daily Worker.

    • Well, it is! I mean, if those lazy oil workers would stop owning the means of production and start working….

  • bikerlaureate

    If President Newt just drilled four times as many wells, the price of gas would drop to $1 / gallon. It's simple arithmetic, yo.

    EDIT: My stomach has been queasy ever since I typed "President Newt."
    – Oh crap, I just did it again…

      "Drill pipe goes down, oil comes up; you can't explain it."

    • sewollef

      Fortunately we [as in the Brits] have not used 'Imperial Gallons' for quite some years.

      We use Imperial Litres to measure how much we've been robbed at the gas pump. We should try it here… instead of that awful looking $4.07/Gallon I had to pay last weekend, it could read $2.10/Litre.

      See. I feel better already.

    • commiegirl

      No it was. I went back and checked (JOURNALISM) last time some asshole claimed it, and it was true for about five seconds right when Obama was inaugurated, because no factories were running (due to the recession) and nobody was driving to work (because they didn't have any).

  • Let me get this straight… it's a sin against the invisible hand by liebruls who say it might not be a good idea to drive SUVs and big ass pickup trucks if you don't really need to (most don't), but it's okay when howling about the same invisible hand which jacks/jerks up the skyrocketing cost of the fuel to power those massive hunks of metal.

    • banana_bread

      Don't forget that gas prices are NOT the fault of the president when he's a Republican.

    Chuck, gas prices were even higher in June of '08. Any comment, dumbass?

    • BaldarTFlagass

      Well, obviously George W Bush, who controlled gas prices at the time, made them real high so John McCain would win the election in a landslide.

  • MegPasadena

    Next he will claim Obama controls the price of tampons.

  • DaRooster

    “The price of gasoline over the long haul should be expected to go up…"

    1. Expected does NOT mean "Obama wants the price to go up" (Dumb-ass)
    2. It should be expected solely due to GREED.
    3. It is not even supply and demand… gas is our #1 export and it is being stockpiled in tankers and on shore just to make it appear that there is a shortage.

    But hey, if you want to believe that one (blah) man can turn the richest country into a third world slum in a measly 3 years go ahead.
