Joe Biden and higher prices

In his acceptance speech today, Joe Biden talked about how much prices have gone up during the George Bush administration. Funny, he didn't happen to mention that in the last election, the Democrats promised to lower gas prices--they even said they had a plan to lower gas prices. Yet gas prices have skyrocketed under the Democratic Congress.

Why on earth should anyone believe Biden, Obama or other Democrats when they now tell us they are going to lower prices? What is the old saying, "fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."

Congress had nothing to do with the high gas prices! ;P

First rule of Politics Club, always blame the Presidential administration for every hiccup in society.

True up to a point. However, the party affiliation enters into the picture with the liberal media. For example, when Bush senior had a government shutdown due to budget dispute with Democratic congress, it was blamed on him (Republican). But, when Clinton had a government shutdown with a Republican congress due to a budget dispute, it was the Republican congress that was blamed.
