Obama's Advice To Those Complaining About Surging Gas Prices: Suck It In And Cope

Tyler Durden's picture





 

As gasoline prices continue to surge day after day (and with WTI touching $109 today this will continue for a long time), the peasantry is getting restless. Not only that but it is getting nosy. In fact today some plebs had the temerity to seek answers from the teleprompter over the festering question of just how long will Bernanke, pardon, UK stagflation, pardon, default Portugal, pardon, healthy worldwide demand keep pushing gas prices to $4, then $5, then $6, and eventually to the price paid in Europe: about $9. The response was straight out of Charlie Munger's (non-frontrunning) playbook: "I'm just going to be honest with you. There's not much we can do next week or two weeks from now," the president told workers at a wind turbine plant (one operated by Spanish company Gamesa). "Gas prices? They're going to still fluctuate until we can start making
these broader changes, and that's going to take a couple of years to
have serious effect." And we doubt Obama's hard core union electorate will be happy at the following stab at Channel Stuffing Motors: "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.
" Let's hope the people don't get the same idea about the presidential office two years from now, even after the $1 billion spent on TV ads. As to the core question, we were surprised Bill Dudley was not present at Obama's side explaining how deluded complainers should just have a chilled glass of unleaded 98 Octane with their main course of deflationary iPad 2.

More from AP:

The president spoke at a town hall meeting at Gamesa Technology Corp., a Spanish company that makes giant turbines that use wind to generate electricity. According to the White House, it is the first overseas company of its kind to set up shop in the U.S.

Back in Washington, negotiations continued on a budget deal to avert a government shutdown Friday and Obama urged lawmakers to get it done. The president said he wants to cut spending, but not at the expense of cutting priorities like energy and education.

As fuel prices rise because of growing demand worldwide and political
unrest in oil-producing nations in North Africa and the Middle East,
drivers are feeling pinched at the pump. Republicans blame Obama and his
policies and he, in turn, is striving to show the public that he gets
it.

In the meantime, if the middle class repeats "Inflation is transitory" three times while starting in the mirror, a genocidal Chairsatan will appear behind it and slice its throat.

Gasoline prices rose another 2 cents Tuesday to a new national average
of just over $3.68 a gallon, according to AAA and other sources. Obama's
visit to Gamesa was his fourth energy event since March 11. He's
scheduled a fifth for Friday in Indianapolis.

It's not all bad news. By the looks of things, er, promises, the gas situation will normalize... some time in 2025.

Obama said he wants to move toward "a future where America is less
dependent on foreign oil, more reliant on clean energy produced by
workers like you." That will happen by reducing oil imports, tapping
domestic energy sources and shifting the nation to renewable and less
polluting sources of energy, such as wind, the president says. He has
set a goal of reducing oil imports by one-third by 2025.

And following tomorrow's ECB hike, and following Europe's subsequent economic deterioration, the only bank that continues to be uber-loose will be stuck in that mode as it seeks to remain the "dynamo" of ponzi growth, meaning Obama voters who complain about gas prices at $3.70 will soon have even more fun complaining when the gas price ends being an anagram of those three numbers in a a year or so.

tmoseley's a presumed god at ZH because he's a two hundred post a day gold doomer using same tired death by a thousand blows redundancy.

Challenge him once and the retorts are immediately puerile, sexual, anal. That's his programmed comeback. He totally bore the crap out of readers, ruins the threads, destroys the otherwise spirited dialogue. He even has a poodle here nights named Col Cooper to offer even more offensive homophobic childish slime as if one inverted mind weren't enough.

moseley was thrown off seeking alpha and ronpaulforum.com for the same activity. Tens of thousands of posts, the vast majority of which are just chlidish sexual insults and retorts to common sense challenges.

In short he contributes as much to this blog as the third ball on a short possum in a circle jerk.

A real fight club would have long ago booted him for the thousands and thousands and thousands of insults and followed by a run for safety with chickenshit grinding slander rather than reasoned argument but hey, he predictably rah rahs gold a hundred times a day here so he stays here behind mommy's apron.

Oh! yes! let's play the "you didn't answer my question" game! I haven't seen that one before!

Yawn. This is just another common, dismissive response employed to derail a point or discussion. It cleverly puts the honus on the initiator of the critique - and if they bite, forces them into a loop where they have to keep coming up with "answers" to continually more unrelated questions. Unfortunately for you [chuckle] Kenny G, I won't run in circles for you. If I wanted to write a paper citing what is already plainly evident, it would never satisfy you. You see, with this technique you are employing, the "answers" supplied are never satisfactory. Your intent isn't to debate but to derail.

You aren't dictating this conversation - and your attempt to control and redirect it is transparent.

...

Kenny G? Really? that is what you've chosen as your handle? Let me supply you with a fun quote from music critic Pat Metheny - because I can't resist ;)

"But when Kenny G decided that it was appropriate for him to defile the music of the man who is probably the greatest jazz musician that has ever lived by spewing his lame-ass, jive, pseudo bluesy, out-of-tune, noodling, wimped out, fucked up playing all over one of the great Louis's tracks (even one of his lesser ones), he did something that I would not have imagined possible. He, in one move, through his unbelievably pretentious and calloused musical decision to embark on this most cynical of musical paths, shit all over the graves of all the musicians past and present who have risked their lives by going out there on the road for years and years developing their own music inspired by the standards of grace that Louis Armstrong brought to every single note he played over an amazing lifetime as a musician. By disrespecting Louis, his legacy and by default, everyone who has ever tried to do something positive with improvised music and what it can be, Kenny G has created a new low point in modern culture - something that we all should be totally embarrassed about - and afraid of. We ignore this, "let it slide", at our own peril."

Your posts in this thread have had exactly zero substance.  You are now the "Charlie Sheen" of Zero Hedge.  You are "winning", no matter what happens.  You aren't interested in anyone but yourself and some vaguely defined concept of "the community", any section of which you feel you can just ignore because they took the time to reply to your asinine assertions.  The truth is, you are in a downward spiral, and are fast losing all credibility and benefit of the doubt.  So SAD :(

Aw gee. I really wanted some credibility in your eys. So much. Really. A lot. With extra reallys.

Don't give me that "you can't attack our community! it's vaguely defined!" crap. That may work on the people who have been around for two months, but not those who have been around for twenty. There's a community. It's defined. I'm critiquing it. You're defending it. That, and you want a cookie for keeping the nazis at bay. My advice? Don't quit your day job.

But bravo, tmosley. I think you have come the closest to actually presenting a reasonable counterargument so far.

The first person to claim that the other party in a discussion lost is the real loser.  This is one of the rules of the internet, though I don't recall which one.

But of course, we already knew you were a loser, as you keep changing names in the vain hope of gaining some sort of credibility.  I don't know why you bother, since you NEVER, and i mean literally NEVER post ANYTHING other than a drive by insult, or at best, a diatribe against one person or another.  

Sorry you are such a loser that this is the best use of your time.  I would suggest you find yourself a girl.

Statists, eh? I was waiting for that one. Do we have a delusional Rothbardian on our hands who thinks that every person is an island and we can all survive just fine with privatized fire and police services? Me'thinks we do!

There's just one little problem with your ethos. Some people were born without your special [affluent white male privilege] bootstraps, dumbass. Some people are lying drunk in their own vomit down on the corner. Some people are getting fired for being black or gay. Women who are actually brave enough to report being raped are being blamed for the crime.

This magic world where the state can be stripped away and everyone can fend for themselves does not exist. Whatever your heated fantasy's about "taking down the system" may be, people want infrastructure. They want basic services. They want social justice. No matter how much you yell and complain after this post, this is an unchangeable fact.

I invite you to study any chaotic period in history - whether you look at the post-Qing dynasty collapse, the French Revolution, the Great Depression and the New Deal, the Bolshevik Revolution, Mexico in the 1920s, 17th century German states, etc etc. People found ways to constitute these basic services any way they could. States exist. No matter how much you whine about it, you aren't going to change that.

Now is that to say that there have been an unceasing procession of brutal dictatorial assholes who have taken advantage of this paradigm and in the process murdered, raped, pillaged and made life generally unpleasant? of course.

As far as these days go in the US - are arrests, trials, and even perhaps executions in order? Probably. Do I think Hank Paulson, Lloyd Blankfein, Jamie Dimon, and Tim Geithner should be behind bars spending the rest of their life in extreme discomfort? Yes - for starters.

But spare me the "smash the state" bullshit. Because that's what it is.

You certainly drew quite a lot from my short comment that was not even largely about statism.  The social justice crowd keeps the ponzi going, Wall Street appreciates your support.  Your knowledge of history is dissapointing.  If a libertarian society was what the elite wanted, it would be what we have now.  They would not have created a central bank, and they would not have funded universities that say the same hilarious things that you say.

Your worldview is shattered by the fact that socialism is a joke on low level socialists like yourself.

Our system of corporate fascism is socialism for the rich.  It's reverse Robin Hood.  In your world, there have been no bailouts over the decades? No price fixing of interest rates to benefit the few at the expense of the many? At least the useful idiot neo cons know that they are pro Wall Street. The clueless diet socialists actually think that their worldview sticks it to the oligarchy. Socialism is a lie.  Big government always gets bought out. That is why your earlier statement about the elite being libertarian is completely false.

As long as you pursue a woldview that requires a big government to loot from your neighbor to centrally plan as you see fit, you will always be a tool for the elite.

Here it goes: Isn't it ironic that those who have taken on the mantle to "get the word out about financial corruption" to "stop the exploitation of the little guy" also have nazis and bigots in their midst? And furthermore, isn't it also more than a little hypocritical to promote an extreme libertarianism that espouses privatizing everything - while simultaneously lambasting big predatory finance corporations that buy political power to promote the same thing? Hypocrisy and Irony. Did you get that? Good.

I think the word you are looking for is miscreant. Or perhaps alienated.

Non-partisan delineates a desire [however small] to work with the established system in order to seek a solution. The gold, guns, and wingnut crowd here at ZH couldn't be further from that definition.

Do I think non-partisanship works? Not particularly. Perhaps it would if there were anything near a level playing field. Unfortunately, capital has consolidated to the point where it controls most political power. Here I agree with the sentiments expressed on ZH.

However, and here is an umpteenth reiteration of my point for the cheap seats, whatever value ZeroHedge has in its criticism, it is completely undermined by the bigotry of its members - and undermined by their highly vocal support for libertarianism - which is an ethos much more closely related to that of the bankers they abhor then they would like to admit.

The banksters want to privatize everything, too. The banksters also believe social welfare is theft. The banksters also want to ignore history in order to justify the dubious claim that everyone can "make it" if they just work hard enough. Sound familiar? Good.

I didn't find you comment worth addressing because it wasn't all that coherent.

Secondly, I agree with you that crony capitalism is  a problem, but you essentially superimposed that over my point about the relationship between extreme self-interested libertarianism as an ethos -- and the very real actions of corporations both in the economic and political spheres.

Funny, you talk about racist bile, but I myself jump over any racist comments.  I continually berate Trav7777 for his fucked up brand of racism against blacks.  I guess you missed that.  Or you are conveniently forgetting it, so you can try to mischaracterize a whole group of people.

Also, I find it hilarious that you can't tell the difference between the Nazis, who were the ultimate statists, and libertarians who are in every way their opposite.  Take you bile elsewhere, loser.

My great uncle liberated one of the camps. He was part of no conspiracy or coverup. Holocaust deniers are assholes.

Of course, Zionists using the Holocaust to justify their Nazi-style actions are even bigger assholes.

You're not related to a war hero. You're spewing jism.

Ok, let's hear your cleverly reasoned musings about today's fluctuations in gas prices. Please enlighten us.

What the fuck are you even talking about?  You sound pretty butthurt yourself.

Go cry to the PC police.  There isn't a stronger defender of gay rights than me.  Of course, you are a loser who must resort to such things as "you're a BIGOT" to make up for the fact that you can't form a cogent argument.

Also, point out the fag: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7hQN4Amaeg

I lived in Boston in 1880 and between 20 and 33% of the people I saw on the street were 'foreign', most of them Irish or Italian, they usually stayed in groups of their nationality and speak their own languages (between them selves) I feel like living in Southern Europe at times, it's scary I can't imagine how this will look like in 10 years, probably catholic churches everywhere with bishops calling for prayer and Catholic law being officially or in officially enforced, it;s not a question of Xenophobia but naked survival.

 

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

You are really a moron you know that?  The above post was a word for word transcription of a person who hated/was afraid of a change in the "racial character" of her town, with the influx of some minority.  I pointed out that the same thing happened then, and they assimilated just fine.

But you are too stupid to understand that, and would rather take a comment out of context in order to prove "something", that you clearly haven't thought out very well.

Keep going.  I enjoy reliving old posts.  These are pure gold.

tmosley just wants his cookie, dude. Come on.

"I have lots of black friends!" "Some of them are jewish and gay!"

 

Damned PC police!

The PC police are hiding under your bed -- sharpening their shivs. Stay vigilant.

You accuse people of being things that they are not.  You PURPOSEFULLY mischaracterize the whole, and then use that mischaracterization as a basis for making individual judgements.

But hey, who cares?  We're all just a bunch of redneck cavemen here.  What are you, some kind of Mooninite wannabe?

Right. I'm sure it was a total mischaracterization. Love the way you jumped all over the vile homophobic jokes being made in today's post [entitled "Consumer credit rises at fastest pace since 2008..or does it?"]. Oh wait, you didn't. Saw your name there, saw that you commented - but wow, just as I predicted you didn't say shit. What is it, you have more jewish friends than gay ones?

So sorry, tmosley, my points stand. What were those points again? I'd be happy to elaborate:

A) It is beyond easy to look at any thread on ZH and find bile filled nastiness.

B) Your claim that you "jump all over" people who spew bigotry is a crock.

 

I've since made a third observation: None of the bigoted comments had any junks whatsoever. My comments calling out bigotry..well, you get the picture.

Please feel free to continue your feeble argument that I am somehow being unfair in my characterization. Your dumbass peers provide endless fodder for me.

A.) .... and find bile filled nastiness

What the .... I don't always agree with all comments but "bile filled nastiness" - not.

B.) None of the bigoted comments had any junks whatsoever ....

Have you looked at other comment threads on the internet - try Drudge or HuffPo or Market Watch - at least here people do try to express there thoughts in more than one line! Maybe that is what is scaring you. And people get junked here all the time regardless of poitical affiliation.

@ Miasmic Researcher:

Wasn’t so long ago that debt collectors were regarded as the ‘bottom feeders’ of society. Seems they have actually been supplanted by ‘web trolls’.

Congratulations, troll. That was so no small task. Too bad for you and your ilk though, as I don’t think it pays as well. No bother, right troll? All you need is a bridge to hide under – that can’t cost much. Rumpelstiltskin ass clown.

[Insert witty response to stock non-sequitur wingnut speak]

 

..Rumpelstiltskin ass clown? Did you come up with that one yourself, or did you get some help from a five year old? Wow, though -- you're really doing Tyler proud by providing such an insightful rebuttal to my sustained criticism of the Zerohedge "community."

Let's recap. What was that criticism I was referring to again?

You *are* the tormentors you lambaste: the bigoted, the selfish, the embittered armchair losers. The banksters you claim to hate are just more powerful versions of yourself.
You couldn't care less about the impoverished, those stricken by disaster, or the historically screwed-over populations. So why pretend to play activist? I'll answer that -- because you need to validate your petty, vicious little life. You only see disaster and apocalypse because it provides you an escape from your impotence. I pity you and all the other ZHers - the foolish regulars and the new Stormfront add-ons. You've got nothing but your misdirected anger. It clouds what little analytical ability you have developed in each of your narrow experiences. Thus, you're simply talking to yourselves because you can imagine few options to improve your lives and/or the world. Feel free to pass on the message and have a nice day.
