Here’s the photo, which I bummed off a twitter feed. It was apparently taken around Los Angeles.
Mitt Romney tried to use high gas prices against Barack Obama during the debate last night, but Obama is too clever for him. The president said that sure, gas prices are higher now. But that’s a good thing!
“Well, think about what the governor — think about what the governor just said,” President Obama, who does not have an economics degree or any history of turning any struggling company around, began. “He said when I took office, the price of gasoline was $1.80, $1.86. Why is that? Because the economy was on the verge of collapse, because we were about to go through the worst recession since the Great Depression, as a consequence of some of the same policies that Governor Romney’s now promoting. So, it’s conceivable that Governor Romney could bring down gas prices because with his policies, we might be back in that same mess.”
Hm. If low gas prices were bad, but they’re much higher now, then we must be in the midst of a blistering economic recovery. Just like First Lady Michelle Obama said. “Huge” was the word that she used. The president even warned that if we go back to lower gas prices, that could be a bad thing — a sign of impending economic doom.
Well, hm, how shall I put this? Either high gas prices are proof that we really are in that huge economic recovery Mrs. Obama said we’re in, or the President of the United States is a colossal economic buffoon.
