Could be just the ‘October Surprise’ ‘Bama’ needs to hold on.
If gas shortages in the US is Bammy’s idea of an October surprise, that will not be in Barky’s favor. It will further Jimmah Carterize the Bamster.
Are you kidding? This has the earmarks of a disaster for Obama. If gas goes above five bucks in California (or worse nationwide) he will be exposed the complete and utter failure he is.
If the shortages get bad enough to start squeezing the trucking industry, yeah. The shortages could get bad enough to lead to riots, giving him an excuse for postponing the election. But, high gas prices just by themselves will hurt him. Badly.
