Dems Roasted For Praising Biden Over 2 Cent Gas Price Drop

Gage Skidmore from Peoria, AZ, United States of America

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) got absolutely savaged by critics for blustering that President Joe Biden caused gas prices to tumble a laughable 2 cents a gallon, despite global oil costs freefalling over the new Omicron variant’s emergence. 

“Thanks, @JoeBiden,” the DCCC posted a chart that displayed gas prices falling in paltry half-cent declines from Nov. 22-29, which resulted in a mere 2 cent reduction.   

Twitter gleefully trashed the display as “parody-level misleading” and “beyond satire,” in a series of replies that should have whoever gave approval to post the graph over at the DCCC fearing for their job.

Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) handily responded with a chart of the last 12 months in average gas prices, which showed costs surging from $2.14 a gallon last year to $3.42 under the current administration. “Thanks, @JoeBiden,” he cheekily captioned the post.    

“Gas prices are up more than 50% since Dec 2020 and Dems are demanding you thank them. Here are TWO CENTS: After you delete your tweet, restart Keystone, start tapping more into our own domestic energy supply, and stop fast-tracking foreign pipelines abroad,” Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) helpfully suggested

The left-wing media didn’t even try to put a partisan spin on the graph, with CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale calling the DCCC’s post “parody-level misleading-with-axes stuff,” and Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler piling on that the graph is “ridiculous and embarrassing. Whoever is making this stuff at @dccc needs a lesson in chart-making and statistics.”

One of the more clever responses came out of conservative commentator Charlie Kirk, who tweeted, “It’s now 2 cents cheaper per gallon for Democrats to Gaslight us into thinking everything is great in Joe Biden’s America.”

“This reminds me of high school when I’d double-space paragraphs to make my papers seem longer,” snarked Fox News’ Joseph A. Wulfsohn. 

Rep. Mary Miller (R-Ill.) cracked, “I’ll combine the two cents I saved on gas with that 16 cents I saved on my 4th of July BBQ and put a down payment on a pack of gum. Thanks, Brandon.” 

National average gas prices are $3.37 as of Friday, up from $2.16 the same time last year.

It probably cost 50 cents to prepare and distribute the ‘news’ that prices have dropped 2 cents. That’s government for you.

Dementia Joe has always been a liar, everyone knows why gas prices are high and it’s due to dementia Joe and his administration for their policies on energy.

The commonly referred to ‘laptop from hell’ keeps giving everyone except the Biden family treats. It is pushing out juicier and juicier information about Hunter Biden and the rest of the clan like a giving tree of data. Yet the sweeter the details, the more they try to lie, deny and accuse their way out of the situation. It has yet to work, and it won’t now. As Breitbart reporters explained, “The Biden family was set to benefit from a deal to transfer American natural gas to Chinese energy company CEFC, through a prospective 2017 deal by Hunter and Jim Biden, according to newly uncovered documents — as the Biden administration now massively scales back the United States energy production. Documents never previously reported on, from the infamous ‘laptop from hell’ belonging to Hunter, show the Biden scion was working on a deal in 2017 to transfer liquid natural gas from Louisiana to CEFC — the same Chinese firm with which Hunter also discussed a business venture that would have ’10 [percent] held by H for the big guy’ but the deal never materialized.” hankfully, it never materialized. Hunter not only has no place making business deals of this magnitude, but even more so he does not need to be doing things for Dad while using his connections to make the deals happen. Kicking 10% up to daddy after the deal is done has a very “Goodfellas’ aspect to it. Doing business in an organized crime manner is not how proper business is done, and when you are intermixing politics at the same time, you have an ethical dilemma of unimaginable proportions.

Yeah, I’ll try not to spend that 2cents all at one time. Perhaps I can put it with the 16 cents Beijing Briben “saved” me on a July 4th hot dog roast this last summer and buy a piece of gum!

It’s hard to believe that Biden’s cohort was roasted for praising Biden over a two cent gas price drop! Granted that it was a ridiculous statement and there was no reason to praise Biden over such, neverless for the Dems to roast him for so nonsensical a statement leaves one wondering what the dems were thinking and why they made an isssue about it! I would appreciate knowing what was behind this statement!

For four years I could fill my car, drive somewhere, buy a meal and eat it, and still have a little money left.

In less than a years time with the Demented Incontinent One in the Oval Orifice, I now look at my cars gas gauge and have to make the decision in whether I fill my car, or eat at all this week.

The man cannot match his thumbs or form complete sentences so might as well celebrate any moment they can seize. The day he remembers to change his “Depends” before they are completely saturated will be celebrated with cake.

I will vote for Trump or anyone on the Republican ticket next year. I expect to see Republicans get a majority in Congress good enough to impeach Biden and have it stick. I will vote for Republicans who will vote against ALL of Biden’s funding programs, especially the Green New Deal, and all of his cabinet or court appointees. I will NEVER own an electric vehicle so I will vote for Republicans who go all the way and defund the EPA.

What do you expect from an incompetent old FOOL who is being led on by an even MORE INCOMPETENT ADMINISTRATION AND WIFE!
If Jill Biden really loved her husband, she would remove him from the White House and ALL THE RIDICULE AND SHAME HIS CLUELESS IMBECILIC ACTIONS HAVE CREATED AGAINST HIM. JILL BIDEN must be in this conspiracy to use an old senile man to destroy our Nation because she is letting this happen 24/7. Shame on the Biden administration and shame on Jill Biden for not fighting for her husband by getting him removed from the White House.

Biddyboy biden is SENILE, INCOMPETENT, IMBECELLIC, and so far removed from his own actions that he is not aware he has been given the shaft by his own political party. You can be angry at him, but BIDEN IS PATHETIC AND HIS ACTIONS WILL ONLY GET WORSE AS HE AGES.

BIDEN MUST BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE…
