    From the release, which called the event a "fundraiser," even though it was an official White House event recognizing the Blues:

    "When President Obama moved into the White House three years ago, the national average of gas was $1.85 per gallon. Today, the average price of gas has risen to an astonishing $3.59 per gallon and is showing no signs of a decline," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

    "Unfortunately for America, Barack Obama has had us all singin' the blues with rising energy costs and failed energy policies. His recent rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline denied thousands of Americans jobs in addition to an affordable, secure energy source. In November, Americans will be able to send the president and his failed policies into retirement, where he will be able to sing the blues all day."
