Jeffrey Lord makes a prediction:
President Obama will not be re-elected. Period.But the president's not worried:
Obamaflation has arrived, and this is what it looks like.
Milk. A gallon of skim. At the local Giant in Central Pennsylvania:
January 11, 2011: $3.20
February 28, 2011: $3.24
March 6, 2011: $3.34
April 23. 2011: $3.48
That would be a 28 cent rise in a mere 102 days, from January to April of this year. The third year of the Obama misadventure.
Then there's the celery. Same sized bag. Same store.
January 11, 2011: $1.99 a bag.
March 6, 2011: $2.49 a bag.
A rise of 50 cents in 54 days.
And the gas price during the administration filled with those who think "drill baby drill" is so yesterday? As one internet photo [here] had it, the numbers for regular, premium. and diesel were replaced with "LOL," "OMG," and "WTF!" Thus be it to governments who seem not to understand that energy is what makes the economic engine -- and your car -- hum.
What does this mean? It means Barack Obama is not going to be re-elected president of the United States. Period.
At a fundraiser in Southern California last week, where pump prices are the highest in the country, Obama acknowledged the political peril of high gas prices. He said, “My poll numbers go up and down depending on the latest crisis, and right now gas prices are weighing heavily on people.”He's not an elite! Really! And he feels your pain:
He tried to show that he feels motorists’ pain. “I admit, Secret Service doesn’t let me fill up the pump anymore,” he said. “But it hasn’t been that long since I did.”
“It’s just another burden when things were already pretty tough,” he said.But it's much more than "just another burden," because high gas prices affect the cost of everything we buy. And regular people, who must drive to get to work, school, and the grocery store, are feeling it. This man's expression says it all.
Update: I didn't quite know what to do with Obama's nonsensical "fill up the pump" remark. But Mark Steyn did. (For the smartest guy on the planet, Obama doesn't always make a lot of sense, does he?)
Please read the comments. As people are being painfully squeezed by Obama's energy policies, he searches for the real killer. Maybe that's why he spends so much time on the golf course.
