The Truth Comes Out

12Jun08

Barack slipped. In an unconscious moment, he made a comment regarding gas prices that reveals, once again, the low esteem he has for regular folk. This time, he’s concerned that we cling to our low gas prices:

CNBC’s John Harwood: So could the (high) oil prices help us?

Barack Obama: I think that I would have preferred a gradual adjustment. The fact that this is such a shock to American pocketbooks is not a good thing. But if we take some steps right now to help people make the adjustment, first of all by putting more money in their pockets, but also by encouraging the market to adapt to these new circumstances more rapidly, particularly U.S. automakers…

He doesn’t mind the high gas prices, he just wishes they’d occurred gradually enough so people wouldn’t notice.
