JAY THOMAS, San Clemente
President Biden has been such a failure that, according to polls, the majority of Americans don’t want him to run for office again in 2024.
But Biden and the Democrats who have supported him (like Mike Levin) should be given credit for being successful in one undertaking, that being the war on fossil fuels.
Their undermining of the production of oil, natural gas and coal have necessary caused the cost of fuel and electricity to skyrocket, which, in turn, has caused many other consumer goods like groceries to have significant price hikes.
It’s remarkable to think that in just two years, the U.S. went from being a net oil exporter to now begging countries like Iran, Venezuela and Saudi Arabia to help us out of this self-inflicted mess.
In the meantime, in an effort to reduce the political damage from high gas prices, Biden has drained the strategic oil reserve (meant for times of national emergency) to the lowest level in 40 years.
Over the next few weeks, citizens will have the opportunity to hold the people responsible for this incompetence accountable. Please do your part by voting.
