Gas is now over $4/gal here in central New Yawk. I paid $3.87/gal last Thursday. It's like someone greased the skids to Hell. And I lay the blame at the feet of the idiot in the White House. Of course the media still carries Obongo's water and refuses to besmirch the sacred nature of His Emptiness. It reminds me of the Muslim anger directed at nonbelievers whenever the Quran is questioned or their Prophet, Bees Pee Upon Him, is maligned. There can be no criticism of Obongo because "All Your Blame Belongs To Bush."
The Real Revo has a nice piece about this.
I had forgotten this quote. What a great wrap up.As gas prices rose in 2008, network reporters mentioned President Bush in 15 times as many stories than they brought up President Obama in a similar period in 2011.Of course, unlike Bush, Obama has actually called for increases in the price of gasoline in order to goose his green dream. He has placed moratoriums on drilling and, as we reported today, stopped drilling for bogus reasons.
Bush drew gallons of coverage in 2008. Comparing a 20-day span of rising gas prices in 2008 to 24 days of rising prices in February 2011, the Business & Media Institute found the networks did more than 2 ½ times as many stories during the Bush years versus Obama.
All of this, of course, is trivial compared to his policy of deep deficit spending, a weak dollar and quantitative easing. The irony is that the media blamed Bush for the price of oil and it wasn’t really his fault. Meanwhile, the RDM excuses Obama and it actually is his fault. It is maddening.
“If I had my choice I would kill every reporter in the world, but I am sure we would be getting reports from Hell before breakfast.” ~William Tecumseh ShermanHere's another one from Gen. Bill:
I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their camp rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which, in truth, they are.
