RNC Launches “Obama Running on Empty” Web Video

- February 29, 2012

 WASHINGTON - The Republican National Committee (RNC) is out with a new web video "Obama Running on Empty" to highlight President Obama's latest failure to address rising gas prices. After calling for a comprehensive energy plan during the campaign, President Obama has failed to advance such a plan while in the White House. With millions still struggling in Obama's economy, rising gas prices are making things worse.

The web video can be viewed here.

"As gas prices climb to record highs, Barack Obama remains completely out of touch," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. "After calling for a comprehensive energy plan 'that works' during the campaign, four years later Americans are scratching their heads wondering exactly how long they are expected to wait."

"Barack Obama said he would work to solve our energy crisis 'once and for all.' Yet, his solution has been to make it harder for American energy exploration, deny the Keystone Pipeline and prop up cronies at Solyndra. Obama was right when he said his energy policy was 'just a hodgepodge.' In these tough economic times, we need a leader who will follow through on his promises, not someone running on fumes."
