Gas Drops = Economy Sucks- Says Obama
On the way home tonight I saw gas for $2.99 a gallon; down almost a buck since the election.
Remember what Obama said during the second debate with Romney about why gas was so cheap before he was elected?
Maybe a refresher?
OBAMA: Well, think about what the governor -- think about what the governor just said. 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.
But if gas drops when the economy sucks; why is it dropping now, Mr. President?
Does your economy suck?
My guess is he doesn't think so.
And his probably doesn't.
It just that for the rest of the country the economy sucks, and has since 2008.
