I Love the internet. In just a few clicks, you can go back in time and see what promises a politician made, and compare that to today.

With oil prices hitting a high this week and prices at the pump topping $3 a gallon in many places, Amy Klobuchar, a Democratic Senate candidate in Minnesota, is making the issue the centerpiece of her campaign. Ms. Klobuchar says it “is one of the first things people bring up” at her campaign stops. To varying degrees, Democrats around the country are following a similar script that touches on economic anxiety and populist resentment against oil companies. “It’s a metaphor for an economy that keeps biting people despite overall good numbers,” said Senator Charles E. Schumer of New York, chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Mr. Schumer said Democratic candidates in 10 of the 34 Senate races this year had scheduled campaign events this week focusing on gasoline prices.

We can see in seconds if the politician was just a liar, a panderer, capable, inept, or sincere vs insincere.

The recommendations of the memorandum to Democratic candidates include holding a campaign event at a gas station “where you call for a real commitment to bringing down gas prices and pledge that, as a member of Congress, you will fight for families in your district, not the oil and gas executives for which the Republican Congress has fought so hard.”

Hmmm, I wonder if we’ll see Speaker Pelosi standing in front of a $6 a gallon sign in California this fall?


Sean Hannity’s got the video that is PRICELESS
