As I passed a local gas station this morning and saw gas at $1.499, I can only wonder how stupid those people must feel who have that "Gas was $1.46 when George Bush was elected" bumper sticker on their car. Wow, it's gone up 4 cents in 8 years. The tragedy!
Yes, I know that the price is dropping because the all-around economy is bad. So what? What has President Bush done to destroy the economy? War hasn't done it. The President doesn't control Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The President isn't in charge of any of the Big 3 car dealers. The President isn't in charge of financial institutions. The President doesn't control the stock market.
And the President doesn't control the price of gas, either. If you're going to stick it to the President when prices rise, you've got to give him credit when they fall.
I didn't hear anyone give him credit when the stock market peaked during his Administration....
