Clark: Even Crooks Have Gas Pains

Ah, remember those innocent good old days? You know, a couple years ago when everybody wanted to tar and feather President Bush after gasoline hit the $3-a-gallon mark. Then along came Obama who promised us all change. Too bad we didn’t realize that he was talking about gas changing to four bucks a gallon. I tell you, the gas woes are so bad that even the criminals are suffering. Take what happened Easter Sunday on Lake Coeur d’Alene. A couple of bozos supposedly stole a 19-foot fishing boat from a slip. Their joy cruise was short-lived. Kootenai County sheriff’s deputies found the fools bobbing in the water like a dead carp. You guessed it – outta gas!/Doug Clark, SR. More here.

Question: What role should President Obama play in trying to bring down high gas prices?
