This is the photo that the Dick Armey/Koch Brothers billionaire funded "Americans for Prosperity" (The folks behind "The Tea Party") have posted to promote their "sponsored" Facebook page.
According to them, President Obama is responsible for nearly $5.00 per gallon gasoline.
The day before yesterday, The Blog paid $3.99 per gallon for gas. Too much, yes. But, nowhere near $5.00 per gallon.
The last time The Blog saw gas prices this high was in the early months of 2007. (And, remember that The Blog lives in Southern California, where gas prices tend to be higher than anywhere else in the country, except Alaska.) That was under President George W. Bush.
So, The Blog is calling bullshit.
Are you paying this much for gas?
Didn't think so.
If "Americans for Prosperity" will lie about this, what else are they lying about?
Wake the fuck up people.
