It’s absolutely fabulous to see that gas prices are tanking (no pun intended) as the price of oil plummets. The only problem is that it’s happening for the wrong reason. The economy keeps slipping, thereby causing inventories of oil and gas to skyrocket. Speculators anticipate a continued slowdown, so don’t be surprised if prices creep even lower.

Wouldn’t it be nice if this were happening solely because we were expanding our own sources? Maybe someday…

Did you notice which foreign ally has been adversely affected by the security leaks from the White House? One and only one has been harmed: Israel. Yet, this President continues to talk about having Israel’s back.

Speaking of Jewish interests, the President has pandered to just about every interest group that could possibly vote for him. So far, the list includes women, young adults, gays and Hispanics,

But, for some reason, he hasn’t offered up any goodies to the Jews yet. Mr. President, please don’t leave us out of your pandering tour. We might start to suspect that you think we’re in the bag for you.

The Left has loved to frame Republican presidential candidates as out of touch. Bush #41 was said to be out of touch because he was not familiar with scanners in markets. Romney was framed by Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC as out of touch because of his comment about using computerized vending machines at a Wawa store that Mitchell herself had never set foot in. Both incidents were totally manipulated by the press to distort the image of the candidate.

Now we have a candidate who is clearly out of touch and it was not manipulated by the press. In fact he manipulated the press to cover himself. President Obama was at the men’s Brazil- USA exhibition game with the First Lady. When they turned the Kiss Cam on the king of cool, he had no clue what to do. He was so embarrassed that an hour later he made the event operators run the Kiss Cam again and brought the press corps back to make sure they covered it. This time he kisses the First Lady. Kiss Cams are ubiquitous at sporting events, being a favorite moment of the crowd. The Prez tells us he is a sports fan. Mr. President, that is just lame and you are the guy out of touch.
