Gas prices have barely begun to drop and Biden is trying to run a victory lap. But while doing so he goofed and admitted that he’s actually punishing Americans.
“Two weeks ago, I announced the largest-ever release of the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve to increase the supply of oil to help bring down prices. And I met with our friends around the world; other countries joined us,” Biden boasted. “And those savings are starting to reach drivers.”
“Now, today, the average price you’re paying here in Kansas City is below two [sic] dollars a gallon — three dollars a gallon. It’s down to $2.90 a gallon. Twenty cents down from — cents — from a month ago,” he added.
For a mere moment Biden dropped the mask and admitted he’s punishing Americans and then he quickly tried to correct himself.
“We’re making progress, and we’re going to keep at it to ensure the American people are paying their fair share for gas — not being gouged for gas,” the president added.
If that isn’t code to the far-left I don’t what is.
Biden also started saber rattling about his “infrastructure bill” and as usual he add to mention that he rode Amtrak:
And, look — look, as Emanuel said, we’re in a situation where we’ve known that our infrastructure had problems for a long, long time. I don’t think I could take one more phrase that’s going to be “Infrastructure Week.”
But guess what? It’s going to be “Infrastructure Decade” now, man.
No more talking. Action.
The law also includes the most significant investment in passenger rail in 50 years — $66 billion for passenger and freight rail.
You know, I was talking with the members about improving cross-state, interstate passenger rail — something I know a little about. I’ve been doing it for a long time. You know, the fact is that you’re looking at “Mr. Amtrak” here. (Laughter.) I’ve traveled over — it’s the God’s truth — I’ve traveled over 1,250,000 miles on Amtrak.
Biden has given this same speech at least three times and he still messes it up…
Lastly, Biden proclaimed that the “time of losing is over. It’s over, over, over, over.”
Oh really? That’s not what his approval ratings show.
BREAKING: More than two in three (69%) Americans disapprove of Pres. Biden’s handling of inflation, while 57% disapproves of his handling of the economic recovery, according to a new @ABC News/Ipsos poll. https://t.co/8BaO3UoT8i
