Something Rush said on his show today, about every gas sign being an ad for the Republicans: "Don't re-elect Obama". I can see it!
Updated per LCR: Extremely pertinent thread at Memeorandum, per The Washington Post:
Soaring gasoline prices are biting into household incomes and nibbling at Americans’ fuel consumption — and support for President Obama, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.
About six in 10 respondents said they had cut back on driving because of rising fuel prices, and seven in 10 said that high pump prices are causing financial hardship. Obama, like previous presidents in times of high oil prices, is taking a hit. Only 39 percent of those who call gas prices a “serious financial hardship” approve of the way he is doing his job, and 33 percent of them say he’s doing a good job on the economy.
Go figure. Like everything else going on right now, Obama has no clue (unless it is something that advances the socialist-progressive agenda, trillions in debt and added centralization of power in Washington DC). Of course gas prices have everything to do with the Fed's mismanagement = inflation and nothing to do with "speculators" but that doesn't stop 'O' from hitting that easy target with the only weapon he has: useless rhetoric.
