Here are just a few headlines at the time:April 25, 2006: Democrat Bob Fertik: “Bush’s policies have raised gasoline prices from an 8-year average of $1.15 under President Clinton to $3 today”April 26, 2006 : High gas prices fuel further decline in Bush’s poll ratings [gas prices just under $3.00/gal]
In 2006: “Impeach Bush/Cheney” petition was circulated [as gas prices were $2.65/gal]
In 2007: “How Bush pushed gas prices sky high.”
Now we are in a new administration and the sustained high gas prices under president Obama [over $2/gal, and now over $3/gal] has been one of the most under reported stories of the liberal media. The yells when Bush was president were loud and sustained when gas prices even neared $2/gal. When they went above that to $3 and up to $4/gal for a short time, that [along with how many troops were being killed in Iraq] was the story of the day, every day.
From the Media Research Center: “As gas prices rose in 2008, network reporters mentioned President Bush in 15 times as many stories, than they brought up President Obama in a similar period in 2011.”
Now we are in February of 2012 Gas prices have nearly doubled from when the “evil” Bush handed off the presidency to the great one and it seems like the high gas prices just don’t matter that much anymore.
Where are the constant stories about how Americans are suffering under these high gas prices? Where are the stories of how these high gas prices are Obama/Biden’s fault? Where is my local media telling me where I can find the cheapest gas in Houston, every single day?
Where is the outrage now?
The silence of the media about the high gas prices under president Obama is deafening.
Because the media is not pounding on the high gas prices every single day, like they did with Bush, Obama’s poll numbers are not falling relative with the rising of the gas prices. Good job, Obama sycophants in the media. You get the laugh now. That just means I will get to relish with schadenfreud watching you suffer as you have to announce the defeat of Obama in November. When that happens liberal media, don’t hide your feelings. I want to see some tears.
