Lately the Republicans are arguing that gas
Has grown more expensive 'cause Obama didn't pass
Pipeline legislation that most Democrats oppose
Where did they learn Economics do you folks suppose?
Couldn't have been Harvard, and not Wharton, or they'd know
Not the kind - not fast enough - to show up at the pump.
Nope, that's not the reason that the prices seemed to jump.
Prices have been climbing due to tensions with Iran
And because the speculators figure they should plan
Just in case Israelis try and bomb nuclear plants;
Finally sick and tired of the Ayatollah's rants.
Plus, there's the refineries; we do not have enough.
People blame the President when lots of other stuff
Is the reason for the pain we've all begun to feel;
But, $2 bucks a gallon Speaker Gingrich? Please. Get real.
