Last I heard, the don't give POTUS a magic pen that signs anything into law he wants. So what's he supposed to do about gas prices?

Also, to be clear, I approved (and posted) this one.
Not "IAB".

So by that logic, apparently this is the first time I've disagreed with a post (which I don't, I agree with it, it's just one sided propaganda).

Now you get two sided propaganda, both of which are abominations to journalistic integrity.

However, it would seem to me, all the posters most outraged by the previous video seem to have run out of outrage for this one.

Oh no wait, they're just redirecting their rage at the person who pointed it out. Well... if it helps you sleep at night.

"I believe the reason the title says "good" and "bad" is because it's a snarky reference to the previous post. I don't think Baal is actually making that assertion."

Your snark detector is in full working order. ;)

Duckboy:
"First time IAB has ever shown both sides and they only did it because the first post was the side IAB doesn't agree with."

So IAB is an anti-Muslim, anti-global-warming, right wing sounding board apparently, saying as we rarely if ever show an alternative to the 5 Cat and Crakr post bombs we receive on the topics.

Good to know.

"I see NOTHING from 2012"

How about you make an assertion, like "No no, Fox still aren't blaming the President, and if they were, I'd be shocked and appalled, as it would be 'media hypocrisy, loud and clear'".

.... no?

Someone had to approve the first one, genius.

@DuckBoy87

Would you rather IAB just neglected to post the POV that disagrees with its views? You're that guy. The one that will never be happy. You're pretending every IAB mod has the same political views. They don't.

Hypocritical much IAB?


And make matters worse, the video shows no evidence of saying high gas prices in 2008 were good and there were no clips from 2012.

I think it's time we got some new mods, or at least de-mod the idjit that approved this post.

That's because you have (for the most part) much better public transit and a smaller sphere that you drive in. So you consume less gas, so prices are higher. I drive 40 miles to work every day. It sucks.

sorry if this was covered, but when did they say it was GOOD? when did they say it was bad?

all I kept hearing was, "we can't do anything about gas/oil prices, get rid of the gas guzzling cars"

The only info I got from this video was that Presidents don't decide how much oil costs.

I see several Fox newscasters and/or guests in 2008 (Bush) saying it's not the President's fault for "high" gas prices of $3.
I see NOTHING from 2012.
How does this, in any way, refute @Crackr's video? That was Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton blaming Bush, not some rubes off the street! And the contrast of the MSM blaming Bush in 2007 and PRAISING Obama in 2010 is both obvious and sickening.
Nice try @Baalthy but you didn't actually DO anything, eh?

Fox News... misinformation at its finest. The worst part is that they get away with lying on a daily basis.

Title is misleading. No one in 2008 said the high gas prices were 'good', and no one in this video mentioned 2012 gas prices at all.

The fact still remains, Obama killed the Keystone XL pipeline that no only would've provided much needed jobs, but would've lowered gas prices.
