Straight from the horse’s arse, although comparing equine hindquarters to King Narcissus Hussein is probably a foul insult to the waste-excreting region of fine animals.
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.
“If you’re complaining about the price of gas and you’re only getting 8 miles a gallon, you know,” Obama said laughingly. “You might want to think about a trade-in.”
Maybe the gentleman wasn’t owning a “gas-guzzler”, the Ogabe-created pain at the pump is just the same whether he is or not, a near 100% price increase is still a near 100% price increase, but that’s beside the point here.
The point being: What the everloving fuck does that eternally vacationing jackarse think he is telling free citizens what to drive or not? That was a rhetorical question. We already know what he (and his cheer-leading chorus in the Make Believe Media™) thinks he is, but we don’t much think that the current holder of that job is about to resign it and hand it to this particular usurper, seeing as how He has held it since the dawn of creation.
We might, might react with something less than hatred and derision towards that particularly galling and condescending (even for him, and that’s saying something!) remark if he were to start rolling around in a ShmuckCar, but obviously that sort of thing is not for his own divine self, it’s only for the little people who have actually held a job in their lives. You know, the kind where you actually have to do something other than going on vacation and golfing for about 95% of the year in order to stay on payroll.
That citizen, for all that we and his present-ness know, might be just yet another citizen struggling to survive paycheck to paycheck in the Ogabe Depression without losing everything he has actually worked for as opposed to having handed to him on a silver platter, no actual effort required, driving the most fuel-efficient clunker he could afford with what was left over from his paycheck after the federal leviathan was done raping it.
Yet all that god king Ogabe has for him is a condescending, arrogant laugh and sneer, suggesting that it is his own damn fault that he’s finding it hard to pay for the gas prices that Ogabe has made damn sure would “necessarily sky-rocket” as he himself promised in an interview quickly suppressed by the OgabeMedia.
His Imperial Majesty has no idea whether or not Ogabe is familiar with Marie Antoinette, we don’t know if there’s an illustrated comic book version of it available after all, but he might just want to revisit it for “the rest of the story”, as Mr. Harvey would say.
Oh, and speaking of OgabeMedia suppression and airbrushing, it appears that the section quoted above is no longer available.
We wonder why that might be.
We’re going to need a LOT of rope, Loyal Citizens.
