Washington Times: Gas decreaed compared to when Bush took office.

Using McBear's logic this actually makes sense. We will adjust the metrics so that it make Bush look like he is a hero.

Genius I say! Absolute genius!

Washington Times - Price dip adjusts Bush's gas legacy

You needed to add the McConnell spokesdrone quote for even better effect.

Quote:
"I wonder if the same people who blamed the president for the increase in prices will now credit him with the reduction in prices. It's only fair," said Don Stewart, spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican.
Which brings up the obvious question, if he had his hand on the wheel the whole time, exactly how did the prices spike in irrational fashion earlier this year and provide the coup de grace to the economy?


Interesting that the recession didn't have anything to do with it. But then the Moonie Times may be on the same old scale of calculating recessions that nobody uses any longer.

McBear,
Kentucky

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Actually the obvious question is what McConnell said. Where are the apologies from the hate mongers that wanted to propagate the myth that the high prices were all Bush's fault?

^ You can't have it both ways. Did he, or did he not lower prices? If you say he did, that implicitly means he raised them too (tacitly or purposely).

Look at the logic of ol' Tnt: Bush wrecks the economy, the price of gas falls because average smucks are losing thier jobs left and right and can no longer afford a tank of gas, and his conclusion: Bush is a hero!

Logic like that is why the American people kicked their asses out of office.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Feel The Love Enterprises now offers a set of images of Sarah Palin in bondage with a rubber ball stuffed in her mouth, for those with ejaclulation issues. We guarantee it can make a dead man come.
