Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Obama’s Marie Antoinette moment, and the AP’s embargo of the quote

Let them eat cake new cars!

Obama needled one questioner who asked about gas prices, now averaging close to $3.70 a gallon nationwide, and suggested that the gentleman consider getting rid of his gas-guzzling vehicle.

“If you’re complaining about the price of gas and you’re only getting 8 miles a gallon, you know,” Obama said laughingly. “You might want to think about a trade-in.”

Nice, B.O.  Dude can’t afford the gas prices your administration has wrought on us, and your solution for him is to…suck it up and buy a new car?  Presumably from Government Motors, right?  (Sidebar: If someone can find me a car in production that gets only 8 miles to the gallon, please fill me in!  Nice straw man, Oba-Mao).

Anywho, while ABC carries the quote, here’s what the AP is reporting:

(crickets chirping)

As Ed points out, the AP and its affiliates initially reported the quote, then the editors realized how problematic the quote could be for Chairman Zero and thus they scrubbed it.  As of 8:30 am EST, a Bing search reveals the quote in its search results list, but when you click each story, the quote is no longer in the “news” story.  Don’t be surprised if the quote makes its way back into online print after enough people complain…and yes, that actually does happen (and then gets blamed on “editorial overlooking” or something).  Nope…no liberal media bias!

  1. This guy manages to stick his foot in his mouth without his buddy, the teleprompter, and the MSM covers it up. No surprise there anymore. I kinda expect it each time he opens his mouth. Its a surprise when he doesn’t.
    Is there an old guillotine somewhere that we can put back into service. With this administration it could get a lot of use. Only in my dreams, I guess. Too bad.
    I am soooooooo pissed at all this mess in D.C. and with this administration. We must make it go away and return to the constitutional government as intended by our founders. What will it take to make that happen? I really don’t believe this buttwipe sitting in the presidential office will allow an election to remove him from power. Not a chance.
