"Is anyone worried about how falling oil prices will impact the election?"
As Rush Limbaugh often says, good economic news when Republicans are in office depresses the liberals. As proof of this, I present this DUmmie THREAD titled, "Is anyone worried about how falling oil prices will impact the election?." Yes, the DUmmies are WORRIED about good economic times. Not only that, you will see them also worrying about the low unemployment rate and the strong economy in general. Such good news for America is BAD NEWS for the DUmmies. So let us now watch the DUmmies admit they hate seeing gas prices decline in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who now knows that every cent of price decline on the gas signs means increasing angst among the DUmmies, is in the [brackets]:
Is anyone worried about how falling oil prices will impact the election?
[I've already pulled out my worry beads due to the fact that prices here have dropped about a dozen cents per gallon during the past month. If it drops another dime, I might have to go into therapy.]
While I'm glad that oil prices are falling below $70 and with predictions that they could fall further in October and November, I'm concerned that this could help Bush.
[This DUmmie wants EVERYONE to suffer with high gas prices just so Bush won't be helped.]
People know high gas prices are here to stay and most of them even have an inkling why. Remember, 60% of us aren't nearly as dumb as we look.
[But you are as DUmb as you sound, DUmmmmmie.]
Adjusted for inflation, our current oil price high still isn't even enough to top the 1980 high. I think that voters, unfortunately, will settle for gas around $2.20.
[How "unfortunate" that lower gas will help Bush and the Republicans.]
If the Republicans win the next election-watch the gas prices go up. The sheeple never learn and the cons know it.
[Karl Rove already arranged for a big gas price jump for the day after the elections.]
They are falling for a reason. Oil companies are paying Bush back for all of the huge profits in the last two years. Notice, the election is not too far away. You connect the dots.
[I've connected the dots and they lead to your padded cell.]
Have you ever read 1984? And how Oceana cut chocolate rations, and then raised them again, but not as high as they were before the cut? Oil prices are like the chocolate rations. People, from an emotional perspective, will be willing to embrace Bush again if oil prices fall to their 2004-early 2005 levels, even if back then they were complaining about those prices to begin with. Why is this? Because people's expectations are so diminished and they don't believe that they will see $1.70 again, so $2.20 will be good enough for them as a result.
[DUmmies are stupid. DUmmies have always been stupid. And DUmmies will always be stupid.]
Whoever didn't know this was coming must be the least perceptive person on the face of the earth? So that leads to my next question...Were the Dem's ready for this?
[Too bad the Democrat's are stuck with their Pavlovian Reflex to answer everything. Falling gas prices? Bush's fault!]
Most Dems on this board have the insight to realize this
But the general, apolitical public doesn't.
[Too bad the general public isn't as "enlightened" as the DUmmies. They foolishly believe falling gas prices to be a good thing.]
Dude, that's a given...non political people don't know shit!!!
[The DUmmie attitude in a nutshell. They can use it as an all-purpose excuse for why they keep losing elections...in addition to the Diebold excuse.]
There might be "enough time" by November. Gas prices are already falling to the $2.60's in some areas, even though they were up at above $3.00 just a month ago! We still that more than two months before Election Day, and assuming that prices continue falling, that will be enough of a time period for voters to gauge the change.
[Drop to your knees and pray that the general public becomes as idiotic as the DUmmies between now and the elections.
How often can he stick a cattle prod up our asses, shock us, and then turn down the power...
[You just put a big smile on benburch's face.]
Our prices in Newark, DE fell $.20 overnight.
Made hubby go "Wow" this morning when we drove past. I just said "Watch'em after the elections. It's only temporary." I bet him a quarter.
[A WHOLE QUARTER!!! Wow! You sure put your money where your mouth is.]
