Remember When David Axelrod Was Bragging About Gas Prices Falling?

Posted by on Aug 05, 2012 at 10:05 am

The utterly loathesome Obama hatchetman took to Twitter back in May to puff out his chest over gas prices declining over a six week stretch.

Well, that was then. Fast forward 12 weeks and what do we see from The Hill?

Gas prices have surged in recent weeks and analysts predict they’ll keep rising, creating fresh openings for GOP attacks against President Obama that had waned when prices dropped sharply.

The nationwide average for regular gasoline is $3.60-per-gallon, a 24-cent rise over the past four weeks, according to AAA.

Prices are well below the peak of nearly $4 in early April, a run-up that fueled constant GOP criticism of White House energy policies and threw Obama on the defensive. The frequency of political clashes over gas prices have tapered off since prices tumbled.

But several analysts told The Hill that costs at the pump are likely to continue their recent rise through August.

Friday brought fresh evidence that pump prices are likely primed for more increases in coming weeks.

Can’t wait for their spin on this one. Somehow they’ll work Bain Capital into it.

Meanwhile, now caught trying to disenfranchise military voters, Axelrod is playing the outrageously outraged card. Good luck with that, Davey.

    You think Axelrod will blame everyone BUT Obama? I know, I know, silly question.
