I was thinking this morning about a convo I had with a RWNJ on twitter about gas prices and that Obama has the control to drive the prices down (like Bush did, though this RWNJ forgot that Bush’s tactics involved a global economic meltdown and printing more money).

Anyway, what I was thinking was how some (R)’s but especially TPGOP’ers think that high gas prices are a travesty, but across the board spending cuts are good. That’s not a direct parallel, but I still find it odd.

RWNJ’s have short-term memory loss and think everyone else does too, because they keep insisting that the price of gas was $1.89 when it in fact only plummeted to that level when everything else went to shit in 2008.

The crazies on the right claim loudly..Government does not work…and in electing them they prove that indeed when you put a right winger in a political office they truly destroy it and prove their point.

They don’t care about the deficit they just want an excuse to try and kill Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
