AP Scrubs Obama’s Gas Guzzling Vehicle Comment

Yup, nothing like the Lame Stream Media protecting their unholy messiah.

From Instapundit:

OBAMA: Get Used To High Gas Prices. “Obama needled one questioner who asked about gas prices, now averaging close to $3.70 a gallon nationwide, and suggested that the gentleman consider getting rid of his gas-guzzling vehicle.”

High gas prices aren’t a bug, they’re a feature.

UPDATE: Rapid Reaction: I got an email from Haley Barbour’s office with this reaction: “Instead of changing his policies, President Obama is trying to blame the American people for skyrocketing gas prices by saying they should trade-in their cars.”

ANOTHER UPDATE: Reader Michael Broderick writes:

“Obama needled one questioner who asked about gas prices, now averaging close to $3.70 a gallon nationwide, and suggested that the gentleman consider getting rid of his gas-guzzling vehicle.”

I was confused when I clicked the link on your page and couldn’t find this quote. So I googled the quote. It shows up in all the google hits but when I click on those articles, it’s nowhere to be found. Looks like AP scrubbed it from all copies of the article! Nothing like a compliant media, eh? Hope you got a screenshot.

In fact, I did. And a good thing, because the story’s been almost completely rewritten. But the “memory hole” doesn’t work very well any more. Here, for the sake of history, is the story as it used to be. And if anyone from the Associated Press would like to email me to explain this change, I’m all ears.

Of course, it’s very interesting that Obama mentioned that figure of “8 miles a gallon” while poo-pooing the poor gentleman who brought up the subject of high gas prices.  Why?  Because his cadillac only gets 8 miles a gallon!:

Hm…  Maybe Our Dark Overlord should stop being such a damn hypocrite all the time and think about trading in his limo for a more fuel efficient vehicle…  Just a suggestion.

    Check out the history of gas prices. In 1973 gas was around 25 cents a gallon. By 74 it was nearly 75 cents per gallon, 1980, a buck twenty five. It all tracks along with arab embargo’s, our dependence on foreign oil and our guvmint basically rewarding those embargo’s and increasing our dependence. Looking back, it has been as if we had no guvmint at all, I can’t believe they are still operating exactly the way the have been for forty or more years. They are the disgrace of disgraces. Its a big game for them and now, 4 bucks, Americans must be totally stupid, there is no other explanation. Obama is our cargo cult resident, he thinks things just drop out of the sky.

    And just think, from armored cars to giant security teams, we pay billions to protect really, the enemy within, our Washington representation. Everyone toady looks at China rising and says, wow, are they kidding me? Look at the competition China has had from us, what a joke this country has been made in to.

    This again is typical Liberal ‘thinking’. It is IMHO akin to blaming the victim for the crime. Our ‘Dear Leader’ is hell bent on wrecking the ‘evil’ petroleum industry that provides millions of high skilled and good paying jobs in the US. Our entire civilization and economy like it or not is geared to oil. You can’t pave a road, lubricate anything, run a diesel,fly a plane, manufacture tens of thousands of products with Ethanol. The so-called ‘Green Energy’ which would be a total failure if not subsidized by our foolish Representatives and Senators is nothing more than a Utopian pipe dream. While this lame administration is farting around wandering in a fog of uncertainty. The Chinese, Russians, Brazilians,

      The ultimate insanity, food into fuel, my Lord, who and what are these people? They call themselves the greens, but their greatest enemy is plant food, carbon dioxide. It is as if part of the world has gone mad and they are looking for some modern witch to burn. Its as if we are living in a perpetual Monty Python show.

      • Big Frank Says:

        I agree to turn a food crop into fuel is a crime against humanity. This whole Ethanol scam was to win over the votes and subsides in key farm states and nothing to do with energy independence. Much of the unrest in various countries is due to raising food prices that can no longer be borne by the impoverished masses. Just follow the commodity markets and they will document the skyrocketing cost of food.

        • Ronin Says:

          To control a people, governments must control food, fuel and shelter.

          The USA was the worlds breadbasket, now we import more than we grow. The government controls our fuel and our home mortgages. Slavery is only an emergency causing the suspension of elections away.

    There are foibles in all of us. There are even Physics Foibles. Entropy is one of them.

    Inside a warm damp cave, completely sealed off from the outside world, will life survive?

    Answer: No life forms could flourish indefinitely.

    In an isolated system, entropy always increases. Life tries to push entropy in the opposite direction. When life is created, entropy decreases in the cave but nature demands a greater entropy increase offset.

    The cave, being sealed, would mean that entropy would reach its max, thus energy necessary to sustain and generate new life would be unavailable.

    Maybe we should learn a lesson from this. Available energy is mandatory. Wealth may equate to available energy. If you want to live in a nation that is prospering, make sure that its available energy supply is abundant. Don’t overuse it. Protect the environment.
