Obama needled one questioner who asked about gas prices, now averaging close to $3.70 a gallon nationwide, and suggested that the gentleman consider getting rid of his gas-guzzling vehicle.
“If you’re complaining about the price of gas and you’re only getting 8 miles a gallon, you know,” Obama said laughingly. “You might want to think about a trade-in.”
Are you fucking kidding me? The solution to high gas prices is to buy a new car?
(Oh yeah, the feds are in the car business now. Makes total sense.)
Of course what is unsaid in all this is the government’s culpability in those high gas prices, directly caused by the Federal Reserve
printing money Quantitative Easing to cover the debt run up by the government spending money at a rate that embarrasses drunken sailors.
Obama likes high gas prices. To him it’s a good thing, and not a problem.
