-- Nader is down there in DC -- I apologize for not knowing where I was going sort talk about the other March Madness and we were talking a little bit.
Earlier Dan about gas prices the GOP -- the GOP's -- -- how the Democrats are handling it.
Now talking about gas prices in the press elaborate for us.
Well this is pretty easy being the media.
-- they spent all of 2008.
Blaming gas prices on President Bush and if you if you're the president that's what happens you did so just this past week where we hit.
Three dollars and eighty cents I guess the compared.
Media coverage when that happened mid 2008.
-- to 2012.
They did more than twice as many stories in 2008.
But here's the key difference back in 2008.
Everything was might be good stories on hyper myelin which is kinda how to coast through traffic and get the maximum mileage.
You go to gas stations and somebody you -- you -- -- by you guessed.
-- go Rodriguez had somebody on there and I'm seeing a price gouging protest -- Well this year it's exactly the opposite when you're doing the stories while they -- the gas prices are high you've got people like Charlie Rose going there's thing.
Well there's really -- the president can do and Bob Schieffer come -- say oh yeah it's entirely true.
Even the print press or the online -- Politico.
-- -- lots are all running.
Opinion pieces are already pieces.
That the American public is upset.
That that gas prices are almost four dollars a gallon at if you buy more than regular they're substantially more than four dollars a gallon.
It's it is such hypocrisy -- the part of the press and it just goes to show how much they run cover for the Obama administration.
When somebody you let let's that you brought Charlie resident when -- Charlie Rose says something like that what is what is came the response that.
What what is the response supposed to be let's say he's talking to another media person.
Well in response should be that they're actually there are things -- president can do.
In fact the president believe this himself back in 2011 the president released oil oil from the strategic petroleum reserve.
You could argue whether he should have not but he didn't gas was about.
297 a gallon it only went up a couple more pennies before.
Leveling off for several months.
And then went up again a little bit about 311 for the whole year.
That's one of the things this president has actually done.
A variety of things to make it clear that he wants to limit energy and have prices high.
He's -- energy secretary who said he wants high prices.
About a -- as indicated that he wants high -- all night but that but she actually didn't did corrections of acting got a lot of heat and he's setting -- backed off of that -- Well he backed off of it that doesn't mean that the markets necessarily believe it and and that's -- key point.
You you look systematically Obama has this is we we -- drilling but they the inhibit people getting drilling permits.
They won't let us build the pipeline they won't.
Access a whole lot of the areas that we can.
Either explorer four or already know there's oil like at war.
So there's just if you were to start to do a lot of these things oil speculators to assume that the United States isn't going to do these things.
Would then start losing money and then B bailout and the whole system folds back and prices start drop it.
Dan what Sarah are you -- Dan Gainer on Twitter.
You can you can -- the game game here IG AI you -- -- putter got FaceBook and who knows where else something.
And we can also find this this article on foxnews.com is that correct.
You can be there it is we have that look we are showing it right now -- good to -- How I wondered whether like down Aaron DC.
It's overcast and -- think it's gonna rain.
