Does the new spin work for you?
Remember rising gas prices under Bush? It was all the fault of him and his big oil buddies. "Dismal broadcast network reports about "skyrocketing" gas prices filled the newscasts in 2008. There were reports about businesses closing, airlines struggling and truckers protesting -- all because of the high prices. One ABC report said families were facing the "tough choice" between food or fuel. Others said that "wallets were running on empty" and consumers were told over and over that there was no relief in sight."
Obama's speech about high gas prices yesterday...touting the payroll tax cut.
"And when gas prices are on the rise again because as the economy strengthens, global demand for oil increases. And if we start seeing significant increases in gas prices, losing that $40 could not come at a worse time," Obama said.
It's only because the economy is getting better!!!
