"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.
