Skip to comments.Gas prices keep rising ( Media asleep or worse )

Meanwhile, Obama says: 'Let them buy smaller cars.'
It apparently didn't occur to the president that people for whom it is a hardship to pay a dollar more a gallon for gasoline can't afford to buy a new car.
The remark makes Mr. Obama sound clueless, or callous, or both, but most of the journalists who covered his visit to Gamesa Technology Corp. didn't report this exchange...
Gas prices have doubled since Barack Obama became president. With wages stagnant, unemployment high and food prices rising at the fastest rate since the 1970s, this imposes real hardship on many Americans.
It also means our moribund economy is likely to fall back into recession. When the real price of oil doubles within a year, GDP almost always declines
Obama has added trillions to our massive national debt, which is the most important reason the dollar is losing value.
The president may not mind higher gasoline prices, but he doesn't want to take the blame for them. So he's pretending to do something about them, while actually doing nothing. Attorney General Eric Holder will investigate whether "speculators" have been driving up prices, Mr. Obama has announced.
This is like O.J. Simpson's search for "the real killers." But the irony is lost on most in the "mainstream" media.

They are protecting Obama.
Indeed, since most of them have to buy gas like the rest of us.
Of course they are protecting The One. The time has come to begin to ask questions about who in the media are on the Obama payroll?
They could not be this collectively ignorant by accident.
Obummer declares, “You will buy that POS electric car and like it. I will soon raise your energy bills so high you won’t be able to plug it in anyway. However, we will provide you with free rail service to the camps.”
The Bill and Weather Underground have provided the template. The clean and articulate one will implement the plan.
Will we get the picture in time?
People who have a hard time making ends meet generally don’t drive big, shiny gas-guzzling SUVs anyway, because they can’t afford them. They can’t afford a fancy hybrid, either, but they probably have one of those aging, medium-sized clunkers that Obama took such pleasure in destroying.
Sorry, Obie, we can’t all drive Volts, or Limos like yours.
No way the "mainstream" media would allow Bush to get away with saying something this outrageous. Can you imagine their outcry and attacks on Bush's elitism and for him being out of touch with the financial strains of most Americans?
“They are protecting Obama.”
At every turn. He is one of them. That is the simple truth.
The modern version of, "Let them eat cake.".
Of COURSE! No Republican would get away with such a statement! The Media is essentially a mouthpiece for the Communists. Welcome to the USSA, comrade!/s;)
Their silence on the matter is typical of those who make their living on their knees.
Then you can say you talked the talk.
Having my mid twenties children and friends over for the weekend, most Obama voters. They are pissed. I asked them whose fault it is and proceeded to explain the moratorium and then my daughter says, lift the moratorium or stop driving 15 SUV’s to every where you go and stop using Air Force One to gallivant all over the world and then you can tell us to stop driving to work.
The idiots where I work blame Bush and yell and shout over the top of any argument.
Three current issues that that show Liberals are complete frauds:
1. War in Libya
2 Gas prices
3 Mass Democrat controlled legislature vote to limit Union bargaining.
Oh they’re not sleeping.
It’s 100% deliberate, and co-ordinated.
Our so-called media is nothing but a democrat agit-prop front.
Nothing either free, or independent about any of them.
People with larger cars usually have (gasp) larger families.
Are they supposed to drive two cars everywhere?
Master plan to control population and birth rates?
No, I suspect Obama would say that they should have had enough sense to abort most of them.
a guy I work with blames the oil companies.
“Media asleep or worse.”
Progressive “journalists” don’t criticize other Progressives.
There is a movement afoot to place sticky notes at gas pumps with little reminders to the next custumer concerning the real culprit behind the increase in prices. How`s Your Hope and Change?
Of course. There is one liberal on a gun board I go to who will protect ANY Rat, no matter what they do or how obviously wrong they are or how bad they screw things up. Absolute power is what they crave and they will do ANYTHING to get it.
I saw an Obama car the other day. If I was in it I would feel like it was a lil tyke car. MEMO TO ODUMBO: Clash for clunkers; order all like Hitler to drive the car you say, DIDN’T WORK!
To raise the cost of automoile ownership and travel to the point it becomes prohibitably expensive.
To gradually herd us into gun free "urban centers" where we will be forced onto public transportation.
People in cities are easier to brainwash and control than the Bitter Clingers and unruly Tea Party types living in flyover country.
I'd suggest a new job immediately. No future for an enterprise with that level of idiocy in the ranks.
Just like the million applicants for 50k McJobs was casually disregarded, the impact of $4 gas and surging food prices is ignored also.
Obummer declares, You will buy that POS electric car and like it. I will soon raise your energy bills so high you wont be able to plug it in anyway.

I think all of us or most FREE-peoples that are conscientious know but it's so danged subtle yet moving so fast who does one lash out against? We KNOW who's bleeping us in the *** and it doesn't feel good but who do we scream TO when congress can't even go after his illegal bombing of Libya, and his intentional State Dept, (ad nauseam supreme court scum selected, softball questions from the fourth estate and worse) no one is managing the sieve of the borders, no one is touching "shovel ready jobs, nor stopping the printing presses which are devaluing our money at an alarming rate. No one is screaming at him regarding DADT, nor the Oklahoma shar'ia law(remember he first spoke to THE PEOPLE when elected on Al Jazeera) oh there's just an alarming amount of complacency, negligence, nefarious brave Sierra and yet who do we scream to when it's our own government asleep at the wheel? Again I liked the writing, so simple and yet Arizona is still fighting the inHumane Rights Commission on being racist and he's attacking America as we know it as every day he slips something new through that'll topple this or that part of the constitution four moves down the line.
The one thing I have noticed that they do not factor in on the percentage of inflation is the rising cost of food. It use to be the stores would raise the price 5 to ten cents on something maybe once a year but here latly they have been rasing the price 25-50 cents at a time and if the item is lets say cost only 2-5 bucks that is a 10 percent price hike and they are doing it all across the board. So when they march out and tell us inflation is only 2 percent then they are having the hired help doing the shopping because they are not seeing the truth.
if gas prices go up during a republican administration, it’s a sign of a crashing economy. if gas prices go up during a democrat administration, it’s a sign of a successful energy policy.
Actually CBS eagerly reported the drop in oil prices today as if it was an obvious trend.
