As we pointed out yesterday, 15 stories, negative stories blaming Bush for the gasoline price rise in 2007 and 2008. One story on Obama for every 15 Bush stories.

So the question becomes: Will the media ignoring the rise in gas prices be able to keep that from becoming a major factor in people’s minds over the economy and Obama’s role in it? Remember, now, everything is focused on the reelection in 2012. The regime is looking at 8% unemployment. That’s what they’re going to get if they could do it. If they can get there by manipulation they will, but that 8% unemployment number is the number they think takes the economy as a negative out of play. It either makes it neutral or a positive. But on the other side you got these rising gas prices. They know their buddies in the media are not gonna harp on that, but rising gas prices are real, nevertheless.

Whether the media is telling us every day how high it’s going, and whether the media does stories on the pain and suffering, or not, remember during the Bush years we got all kinds of stories about the pain and suffering and people couldn’t go visit family and single parents couldn’t see their kids (or divorced parents), because of the high price of gas. We heard about all the ancillary effects of the leisure industry, all of the destruction brought about by rising gas prices. We’re not gonna get that with Obama in the White House, but will it matter? ‘Cause the public’s gonna feel it. There’s no way you can it will ’em it’s not happening.
