The problem with progressives is they always expect normal thinking people to go along with their nutty ideas even when they know that the normal people aren’t buying what they’re selling them.
President Joe Biden caught a backlash from people after he proposed a solution for rising gas prices that normal thinking Americans would likely find wholly impractical.
In a speech on Thursday, Biden promoted his plan to solve the problem of rising gasoline prices.
The first thing he did was blame Russian president Vladimir Putin‘s invasion of Ukraine for the cost of oil rising, even though in the US gas prices were already rising prior to the invasion because Joe Biden killed our energy policies that were put into place under the Trump administration. Biden also blamed coronavirus, which is a real kick in the gut because it was the Democratic Party that shut our economy down, bankrupted small businesses across the country, and put millions of people out of work.
“Putin’s war is imposing the costs on Americans and our allies, and on Democracies around the world,” Biden lied in his speech, calling the rising gas costs “Putin’s price hike,” as he touted his plan that would lead to energy independence.
Progressives need to learn that the Internet is forever.
“Under my plan, which is before Congress now, we can take advantage of the next generation of electric vehicles, that a typical driver will save about $80 a month from not having to pay gas at the pump,” Biden said.
First off, this shows how out of touch this man is, as most people are now paying a lot more than $80 a month to gas up their vehicles.
Thanks to the policies of the Biden administration, gas prices have shot up over the last few months. Thanks to inflation from the Democrats spending way too much money that doesn’t exist until they embed it into the economy, backed by nothing, and the Democrat’s war on fossil fuel use in America.
The people in charge of this train wreck either have no idea what they’re doing or they know exactly what they are doing as they want to destroy our economy so that the government can step in as the savior of the day, and their “solutions” will come with strings and those strings will be Americans having the give up their freedoms.
Truth be told, we just bought an electric lawn mower, an EGO Power+. It runs on battery and has the torque of our gas mower. It’s an amazing piece of equipment that will run for 60 minutes on a charge that will allow us to do our entire law, from, back, and the sides. We didn’t buy it because we believe in the disastrous Green New Deal. We bought it for fear of gasoline, under this progressive regime, soaring to prices we can no longer afford.
This is exactly how a Cloward and Piven move would be made. Create policies that wreck the current system. Mission accomplished. Biden’s anti energy policies are taking their toll, regardless of who he wants to blame it on. Now, he moves in with the solution, which is to switch to an electric car. I don’t want to drive an electric car and as an American, I think I should have the right to drive my current car that I chose to drive.
Biden’s message was not received well. On social media, people pointed out that they know they’re being gaslighted.
“The old man and his whole staff is way out of touch.”
…the most popular vehicle in America is a pickup. We're a year away from the first EV pickup at a $100k price tag.
The old man and his whole staff is way out of touch

“I am a full believer that one day, we will be a nation of electric cars. There’s no doubt. HOWEVER… telling working people to go buy a $50k electric car today so you can save $80/mo in fuel costs is the MOST tone-deaf “let them eat cake” moment.”

“These people live in a totally different world than the average citizen. They just don’t get it or else they do get it and keep pushing it hoping it comes true.”

“And just how much does the car cost? How dumb to these folks think we all are? We can’t afford the gas right now but we are somehow supposed to come up w 30K to get the EV? smh”

These people in the Biden regime are living in a completely different world from the rest of us. They don’t have to worry about the rising cost of gas. They don’t even have to drive themselves anywhere. Someone drives them everywhere. I remember when Trump was president and gas and other commodities were cheap and everyone had a job. The people running the Biden administration don’t care what’s happening to working-class people, because I can guarantee you that everyone in the administration is going to have a fabulous dinner each and every night.
The regime gets away with this kind of garbage because we do not have an honest news media. Did you ever think you would see the day when a president with a 38% approval rating and a vice president with a 28% approval rating have 99% of the media on their side?
Joe Biden is in way over his head. He has no idea what he’s doing to the American people. The progressives who are pulling his strings think that with proper nudging by government, the American people will eventually see the wisdom of their genius. Meanwhile, in the real world, millions of Americans are suffering directly because of the policies created by these “geniuses” who don’t know their a*s from a hole in the ground.
The American people are not stupid. They know that Joe Biden is responsible and buying an electric car is not a solution. 2024 cannot come fast enough.
