Psaki Tells Americans To Expect Less Of Biden When It Comes To...
You know it is sad that multiple things come to mind here. But in this instance, Press Sec Psaki is talking about gas prices and Biden's ability to do anything about them. But really they have the power to better prices.
Q "Let me ask you, if I can, about gas prices. The President was asked about that; a lot of Americans have been concerned about the cost to go to the pump these days.
He said, “I don’t see anything that’s going to happen in the meantime that’s going to significantly reduce gas prices.” He said, “I don’t have a near-term answer.” For Americans who are looking for an answer, what is the answer?"
MS. PSAKI: "Well, what is true — and I think the President as we — as I said earlier, was quite candid last night, as the American people should express from him — expect from him and from any president. And there are limitations to what any president can do, as it relates to gas prices.
Here’s what we have been doing: As we’ve said for some time, we are engaging broadly with OPEC on our concerns at a range of levels. And that is something we will continue to do.
As you know, Jake Sullivan, our National Security Advisor, recently met with leaders in Saudi Arabia and certainly raised this issue.
The President has also been concerned, as the administration has been, about what we have seen as rises in supply that have not been accompanied by drops in costs. That’s one of the reasons he’s asked the FTC to look into price gouging — something that is no doubt impacting, or we expect might be impacting, the cost of gas around the country.
So, we are working and using every single lever he can. But I think what people heard from him is some candor about what impacts we can have."

But Biden did this to us when he first took office.
Biden canceled "the cross-border permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline as one of his first acts in office was seen as a highly anti-competitive practice, by oil producers as well as Canada, which would like to compete in the world market by selling crude oil to the United State. What is more anti-competitive than the government denying pipeline companies the right to compete in the marketplace? What could be more anti-competitive than a president canceling an $8 billion investment with the stroke of a pen? Now instead of buying oil from our northern neighbors, U.S. refiners source a similar grade from Iraq and Brazil."
So by expect less, does she mean forget that Biden did this to us? Either way that is a rough statement coming from the Press Sec, to expect less of the person who is supposed to be leading this country. But I think most of us were not expecting much from dementia Joe as it is.
