...that's assuming, of course, that much of the president's recent slide in the polls is actually due to concern about higher gasoline prices, and his concurrent desire to do little more than tilt at windmills. Literally. Of course, it could be because he's on the wrong side of the contraceptive issue, as well as the Iran issue, or that people are getting a bit tired of his hypocrisy and divide and conquer ethos...but let's humor the MSM, and stick to gas prices.
Jim Geraghty write a column - complete with charts! - that should make Mr. President soil his panties:
Adjusted for Inflation, Gas Prices Look Even Worse
In other words, adjusted for inflation, today’s gas prices – in March! — are worse than during every preceding gas price spike, except the peak of summer in 2008. So what will the peak price be this summer?
In March 2008, the national average was $3.20 per gallon. By June it was $4.08
What will it be this June? I say 38.
brag about raising gas prices to record levels, and tout it as one of the finest accomplishments of his term in office.
Bet on it. And remember where you heard it first...
