(Newser) – Mitt Romney recently panned Newt Gingrich's promise of $2.50-per-gallon gasoline if he's elected president, and Gingrich fired back today on Fox & Friends, claiming Romney just doesn't understand the importance of lowering the price. "If you’re Mitt Romney and you’re rich enough, maybe you don’t get it—$2.50-a-gallon gasoline is more than responsible. It was $1.13 when I was speaker, it was $1.89 when Barack Obama was sworn in as president."

"I mean, if Romney wants to run as candidate of high-price gasoline, that’s fine with me, we’ll lump him in with Barack Obama, which is the same as RomneyCare and ObamaCare, so maybe it’s also Romney high-price gasoline and Obama high-price gasoline," Gingrich continued. "I stand for everyday working Americans. ... Let's debate expensive gasoline versus inexpensive gasoline."

Gas prices are just another lame attempt to blame Obama for a world geopolitical situation and make their black tar sand fuel bullshit pipeline look like the savior..

Oh come on Newt, surely you have got enough sense to know the high gas prices are not OBAMA'S fault. You right wing dimwits would say and do anything to get a vote.
