Has anyone seen the price of gas lately? What about the price of food? Why isn’t the media reporting on this? I filled up the gas tank in my car today, and my two five gallon containers I use for lawn care and stuff, and it cost me $71.00 dollars.

Back when President Bush was in office, the Lame Stream Media would make this a Front Page Story. Under the Obama Regime, the Irresponsible, Lap-Dog, Socialist, Democrat Media, doesn’t report a word, a sentence, a paragraph, a Headline. Nothing, Nada, Zilch!
