Obama: If you’re complaining about the price of gas get a trade in….

“If you’re complaining about the price of gas and you’re only getting 8 miles a gallon, you know,” Obama said laughingly. “You might want to think about a trade-in.”
Are we ready to throw him out yet?
This is coming form the guy who in 2008 told Mort Kondrake on CNBC that he would be fine with $4.00 a gallon gas, so long as the price rose slowly – LINK.
In the mean time other countries continue to drill just off our shores while Obama keeps our guys out:
Cuba to drill five new oil wells by 2013
HAVANA — Cuba on Tuesday announced plans to drill five deepwater oil wells in the Gulf of Mexico beginning this summer, expressing confidence that its efforts will be rewarded with major new energy finds.
“We’re about to move to the drilling phase,” said Manuel Marrero, an official with the government authority tasked with overseeing Cuba’s oil sector.
“We’re all really hopeful that we will be able to discover large reserves of oil and gas,” said Marrero, who added that the ventures would be undertaken with the help of unspecified foreign companies.
He said the deepwater wells were to be drilled between 2011 and 2013, and would be in waters ranging in depth between 400 meters (a quarter mile) and 1,500 meters (1.6 miles). He did not specify which countries would be among the foreign partners working with Havana on the project.
So now we can buy our own oil back from China, Cuba, and Brazil. The academic left always wanted to redistribute America’s wealth around the world, so this is how they are doing it.
