Obama hits the road to ward off gas price political damage

President Barack Obama Wednesday kicks off a two-day, four-state trip to highlight his energy
policies, an attempt to ward off the political damage from soaring gasoline
prices.

Obama travels first to Boulder City, Nevada, where he’ll visit the Copper Mountain Solar 1
Facility, the country’s largest photovoltaic plant. Its 1 million solar panels
produce electricity to power 17,000 homes.

Later Wednesday, he flies to New Mexico, where he’ll boast about oil and gas production fields
located on federal lands outside of Maljamar, New Mexico. White House aides
note there are more than 70 rigs now drilling ion that federal land.

On Thursday, he visits Cushing, Oklahoma, where part of the Keystone pipeline will be built to
carry oil to Texas refineries.

He’ll finish the trip in Ohio, speaking at an energy research lab at Ohio State University.

Obama is not a good president. He's bought and paid for by Wall Street. Most things he said in his election campaign that he would not do, he's now done anyway. Can the man be trusted?

The President doesn't set gas prices. ugh
