Gas Prices are Down! Let's All Vote Republican!

Gee, gas prices sure have gone down a lot lately...from around $3.00 a gallon about a month ago, the cheapest prices in my area are $2.14/gal, a reduction of 29% in about a month. At this rate, gas will be free by election day.

In case you wonder why, our president has actually told us that HE knows why, and that the national press should "watch it carefully". I don't remember the last time a president of the United States telegraphed his intent and his knowledge of what is going to happen in the future so clearly.

The following link is to Dan Froomkin's blog at the Washington Post Online. The quotes below the link are selections from that blog. The quote was given in the same interview with conservative columnists in which Bush referred to the Third Awakening".

Check well down the page for the relevant exchange:

Gas Watch

Does Bush have some insider information about gas prices, which appear to be conveniently dropping just in time for the mid-term election?

Fred Barnes writes in the Weekly Standard: "Bush said the price of gasoline, which has been falling rapidly, is one of the 'interesting indicators' that the press should watch carefully. 'Just giving you a heads up,' he added."

Just for your added interest, the same blog contained the following excerpt:

Believe It or Not

Evan Thomas of Newsweek actually believes that Bush has read more than 60 books in the last year -- then marvels at how little he knows about history.
