Question: What’s your advice to the average American who is hurting now, facing the prospect of $4 a gallon gasoline?
President Bush: “Wait, what did you just say? You’re predicting $4 a gallon gasoline?? I hadn’t heard that.”
? News conference, Feb. 28, 2008
A little over 3 months away there it was. As many places in the country are paying $4.00 or more per gallon of gas. We are lucky in that it has not gotten that high here yet except for the premium grades. It is just another indication of Bush being out of touch with America. Bush and all his cronies are bad for individual Americans. Maybe good for the wealthiest of America but surely not for anyone anywhere near the poverty levels that the high price of food and fuel has put the average American. Maybe I exaggerate a little with the use of poverty but not that much. I am afraid that McCain would be 4 more years of the same failed policies. He already says he is “not too concerned” with the length of time our troops will be in Iraq. What else does he plan on taking the lead from Bush on?
