Non-lapdogs, however, aren’t remaining silent.
In the last 24 hours, exactly 100% of people I spoke to in person mentioned gas prices within 3 minutes. One within 1.

It really makes you feel crappy about yourself when you can't even afford gas money to get to school.

Why? Elections have consequences.
Citizens want answers. And some want Obama to “fix” things for them or hand over some more cash.

Obama is too worried about cameramen who “break his flow” to care about if you can’t afford to let the gas pumps flow.
