You could hypothetically chain House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), the Biden administration, and every other high-profile Democrat to a wall in a dungeon and they still wouldn’t admit that the “Putin price hike” is only partially responsible for the nation’s energy crisis.
In other words, Pelosi believes that it’s everyone else’s fault but President Joe Biden and his disastrous, anti-American energy policies that he enacted on his first day in office.
However, as one Twitter user pointed out in a resurfaced video from 2007, Pelosi was extremely quick to blame the administration of former President George W. Bush for failing to “enact a comprehensive energy strategy” when gas hit an average price per gallon of just over $3.
In 2007, Nancy Pelosi blamed Republicans for $3 gas.
Today, the average gas price in California is over $6 and Nancy refuses to blame Joe Biden. pic.twitter.com/lX0FDm0clV

“Years of Bush administration’s policies that have favored Big Oil over the consumers have resulted in record dependence on foreign oil, leaving American families and businesses to pay even higher prices,” Pelosi said at the time.
Pelosi, hilariously, would go on to admit in the video that Congress, at the time, was focused on building America’s “energy independence,” which is a phrase that would get her kicked out of the progressive cool kids club if she said it now.
“Energy independence is essential,” Pelosi can be seen saying. “Essential to reducing the price at the pump.”
It’s no conspiracy that President Biden has made several moves in the complete opposite direction of energy independence, and Pelosi, the coward she is, refuses to call him out, which she should do if she truly believes, as she said previously, that America needs to be energy independent.
Videos like these are just more examples that prove, without a doubt, that dopey politicians like Pelosi and her Democratic colleagues couldn’t care less about the everyday American, and only say what needs to be said for the camera on a given day.
