The solution to the gas price crisis is pretty obvious. To any Republican, that is. All we have to do is go back to producing the amount of oil we were back when Trump was president. We wouldn’t even feel the ban on Russian oil—and we wouldn’t have to grovel to foreign powers for gas.
Sadly, Joe Biden refuses to do that, far more concerned with what the radical left would say about him.
But gas prices keep going up. That’s not a recipe for a great midterm season. So, Biden has no other choice but to beg nations like Saudi Arabia to produce more oil. His administration was planning to do just that, even releasing a Gitmo prisoner as a seeming sign of goodwill. But, guess what, we were right about what would happen.
From Wall Street Journal:
The White House unsuccessfully tried to arrange calls between President Biden and the de facto leaders of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as the U.S. was working to build international support for countering Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and contain a surge in oil prices, said Middle East and U.S. officials.
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the U.A.E.’s Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan both declined U.S. requests to speak to Mr. Biden in recent weeks, the officials said, as Saudi and Emirati officials have become more vocal in recent weeks in their criticisms of American policy in the Gulf.
Well, what do ya know!? OPEC leaders refuse to even take Biden’s calls, just as the price of oil hits historic highs. How bad of a leader do you have to be that you can’t even get these guys on the phone? Negotiations could result in them making more money since they would end up selling more oil to the U.S.
But these Middle Eastern leaders have so little respect for Joe Biden, they don’t even want to talk to his administration.
Didn’t Biden boast all throughout the election that he’d be a better president because the world would respect him more than Trump? Today, he can’t even get MbS on the phone. Doesn’t seem like these world leaders give two cents that Joe’s in the White House.
Maybe that’s because Joe is openly trying to strike a nuclear deal for more oil with their next-door neighbor and adversary Iran. When we don’t act like trustworthy friends, our friends don’t have much incentive to help us out.
Meanwhile, whenever Trump visited the Middle East, they literally treated him like royalty. Because these guys knew he meant business. He wasn’t just all talk. His policies produced results for Americans—and even the super-rich countries of the Middle East knew it.
But Biden? Nothing he says matters, because he lacks the strength of will or ability to get anything done. So, Saudi Arabia and the UAE can just sit back and let America rot.
Maybe Joe needs to take some common-sense lessons from Trump, but we know he would rather ruin everything he touches than admit The Donald actually knows what he’s doing.
