I’m sure it will come as a shock to no one that Crossroads GPS, the group founded by Karl Rove, has released a highly dishonest commercial blaming President Obama for soaring oil prices. It would have been more surprising if the ad had been honest and reasonable.
Factcheck calls the ad “bogus” and says it offers “false and misleading evidence.” They’re right, for all the reasons I’ve explained before. Domestic oil production has almost nothing to do with the price of gas. Never has, never will.
