There has been some bad information on gas prices since Barack Obama became president. The highest previous gas prices were in 2008, when George W. Bush was still president. As of Aug. 30, gas prices had a national average of $3.72 and finally topped out the previous record of $3.71 during the same time period in 2008. In contrast, last summer gas prices averaged $3.57 at this time.
My point is that all manner of bad information is being spread to make Obama seem a failure. Can any of you imagine if Bush had had another term? Is there rampant memory loss about the surplus we had when Bush and Dick Cheney took over and how they wiped it out by channeling it to the rich, the military and the internationalists?
Perhaps some will be happy when Mitt Romney takes over to continue the Bush years and they find they will probably die sooner without proper health care and owe everything and own nothing with no holds barred on the international banks, the military industrial complex, the insurance companies and the private health care system, Big Pharma, etc., that can't seem to ever get enough.
It seems to escape many that we were losing 700,000 jobs a month when Bush left office. Bush's failed economy did not come with a spigot that allows anyone to simply shut down the losses. With a House of Representatives that will not allow Obama to really help America, what should we expect?
