The Republican National Committee (RNC) released a web video today attacking Barack ObamaBarack ObamaManning release is consistent with Obama’s world view Kerry: Diplomacy isn't 'reducible to 140-character bites' Dems engage in friendly debate for DNC chair MORE for opposing a temporary repeal of the gas tax.

Obama opposes the proposal, forwarded by John McCainJohn McCainMcCain ‘very concerned’ about Tillerson US democracy is in crisis. Trump voters must help us get past it. The rise of Carlson, and the fall of Van Susteren MORE and supported by Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonAppeals court upholds ex-coal boss’s conviction Trump is leader millennials have been waiting for. Even if they don't know it. Sanders backers take over California Democratic Party MORE, as a "gimmick."

"People are more concerned about looking good for the cameras and for politics than they are at actually solving problems," Obama reportedly said today, questioning the value of temporarily lifting the tax.

The RNC says this stance is hypocritical. In the new web video, entitled "Barack Obama's Gas Tax Hypocrisy," a narrator says Obama voted for gas tax relief as an Illinois state senator. The ad questions Obama's understanding of Americans' economic needs and says he is not ready to be president.
