Remember the 2008 meme “Thanks Obama?” The phrase was used all over the internet first blaming the then-president for the economy, but was later used to blame anything and everything that happened such as losing your keys or oversleeping.
Now Biden is the one getting the thanks, except the Democratic Party seems genuine about it. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee posted their thanks along with a graph showing the drop in gas prices in the last week. The gas price change comes after the Biden administration released 50 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
If you look a little closer, the graph does show a drop in prices…by two cents.
Obviously this deserves a standing ovation from the American people.
We aren’t the only ones who laughed at the low bar the DCCC set for Biden, the Washington Post slammed DCCC with a whole article, This Might Be The Worst Defense of Biden Administration Yet.
According to several reports, gas is more than $1 higher than this time last year. So we can only hope the “Thanks Biden” was sarcasm, but we aren’t holding our breath.
