It's Obama's fault of course

FOX News is blaming Obama for the impact of cheap gas. What took them so long.

    Hello Sulphur!

    From TheDailyBanter.com

    As it turns out, though, the screenshot here is deceptive, because despite the chyron, the segment in question is an interview with a guest who says that the Wall Street Journal is wrong when they say lower gas prices are bad for the economy.

    Boy, are our faces red. Looks like Fox Business is sort of playing it straight. Now, let’s all remain perfectly still and silent while Twitchy stops reading now, and goes off to write about how we got beclowned.

    I have long suspected Steven that you wouldn't know irony if it jumped into your boat.

    And that clown on Fox Business is a bigger tool than Glenn Beck.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Hey Steven did you watch this video?

    Fair and balanced, my left nut.

    Steven,

    Isn't strange that the Liberal Conspiracy Theorists aren't blogging that oil company execs are lowering oil prices to help Democrats get elected in 2014 just like they lowered prices to keep Obama out of office in the run up to the 2009 election?

    And listening to Rush. Glenn Beck used to be a perennial favorite, but he has come around somewhat, so the libs have moved back to monitoring their favorite bomb-throwers.

    I'm sure there's nothing hypocritical here. But time spent on oil prices takes away from time spent on racist voter ID laws.

    I don't watch it ever, this came from your article.

    BTW Fox Business folks are saying that your paper of record is wrong. Do you agree with them?

    That would be interesting if anyone ever said that, but they didn't.

    Speaking of which there was a man from Texas who said that he was turned away twice while attempting to get an ID. Apparently they ran out. Really they ran out?

    Nobody loves fracking more than Obama. He's the Fracking President.

    I myself have no problem with fracking as long as those chemicals are covered under the clean water act. Now let me see, who made sure that they weren't. Was it Obama?

    Quite frankly, this fracking business is scary.

    Not only does it pollute the waters where the fracking takes place, it hits close to home in WI where frac sand mines are popping up all over the driftless area threatening the trout streams near them.

    Personally I wish someone would put forth legislation that would completely stop all fracking in this country.

    One man? They only ran out for this one guy?

    It's Texas. He probably had Ebola.

    And when low gas prices boost the economy, who'll get the credit?
  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 26,039 Senior Member
    If there was one guy on the news, you know they were more. But tell us again about how this is about preventing fraud.

    Fracking in the right places and using proper measures is probably no more dangerous than drilling for oil or mining coal. I favor more stringent legislation and local community input.
