Allen West mad at Obama because it cost him $70 to fill up his Hummer.

Today ( 02/23/12 ) Allen West posted this on his Facebook page:

People have asked me before is there any area where I could praise President Obama? Certainly, he has an impeccable penchant for understanding the power of the bully pulpit. President Obama is also very adept at promulgating deceptive language masquerading as policy, actually just insidious political gimmickry. This "tax policy" is an example as well as today's speech on his "energy policy" shall be. Here is the bottom line, last night it took 70 dollars to fill the tank of my 2008 H3 Hummer, what is it costing you? What does it cost the President to fill his gas tank?

Well I decided that me being an average American would answer Mr. West question.

Mr. West trade the Hummer in and get a more economical car. I can't afford a damned Hummmer so no it doesn't cost me $70 to fill anything up. Like most people with any common sense I got rid of my SUV as soon as gas prices spiked. Us common people were forced to live within our means and not own vehicles that cost $70 or more to fill up.

Secondly President Obama is about as responsible for the rise in gas prices as I am. Stop with the pandering and blaming and get to work fixing our problems. Anyone can talk a good game but few can play one.
