Dem hopeful in ’08: I don’t like paying $4 a gallon so I support Obama

Here’s a “careful what you wish for” moment from Joanne Dowdell, who recently announced she would enter the race for Congress in NH-01, a seat currently held by Republican Frank Guinta.

In 2008 Dowdell was asked why she would nominate Barack Obama for President during the Democratic convention.

“He’s the only one with the proven judgement and leadership skills to get the job done. I’m sorry, I don’t know about you, but I don’t like paying $4 a gallon for gas.”

Cost of gas at the Gulf station on Elm Street in Manchester, NH?

$4.06 per gallon.

    I guess this says it all:

    “Cost of gas at the Gulf station on Elm Street in Manchester, NH?

    $4.06 per gallon.”

    She’d rather pay $6 a gallon – that’s why she’s running as a Dem.

    Moonbat vs moonbat Dowdell vs Shea-Porter

    Hey, she said she doesn’t like paying $4 a gallon AND the environment is in bad shape. What she meant was she wanted $5 or $6 a gallon to save the environment. I’m sure she is happy as a clam.

    Obama is the only one with proven leadership skills?

    Really? That’s an amazing comment, considering Obama’s resume compared against his competitors on both sides of the aisle.

      They kept saying that word “proven”. I don’t think it means what they though it meant

  • You! Out of the Gene Pool!

    My God. They’re as stupid and annoying as they are homely. Why are these two womyn not immediately deported?

  • Tracey Greene

    This could be a great political add for anyone running in 2012! Where are these 2 ladies now? Would love to have them comment on this! Thanks to all of these folks who voted for the least qualified person to run a super power!! You reap what you sow!

    To borrow from a Czech editorial, the problem is not that Obama is a fool, he clearly is, it’s that he is the Prince of Fools, and 53% of this country are his fool minions. This woman is but one example of our nation of fools.

    Four dollars for gallon of gas may be bargain, lady, in the near future and beyond.

    Proven judgment and leadership skills? Aren’t we just now finding out about these things? Who was she talking about? Surely not Junior? Mohammed Hussein Obama II? (I love it) The guy with the fake credentials all around? You know. The ones they have to doctor up for years while we wait to have them finished? If she’s talking about him she must be a racist.

    really? Where was this?

    Two “ditzy” women supporting the Messiah. How’s that Hopey Changey feeling doing, ladies? Of course neither of you is capable of analytical thought or just plain old common sense.

    What gas at $4.00+ per gallon? The U.S. media has been so busy reporting about the Royal Wedding and everthing else that it has no time to report about $4.00 a gallon fuel, inflation at the grocery stores or anything else that negatively affects Barack Obama.

    The only difference between Matt Lauer, George Stephanopoulos, Katie “the Cougar” Couric and Joseph Goebbels (Hitler’s propaganda minister) is the uniform.

    The irony in all this, she will probably vote for him again in 2012. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

    I love watching the Obamabots have their ridiculous comments pre-2011 thrown right in their faces. They hated Bush because he started a war. They hated Bush because he didn’t lower gas prices. And, in 2004, they hated Bush because unemployment was “high” at 4.7%.

    Yet now they say they support Obama in 2012…because he started a war, because he hasn’t lowered gas prices, and unemployment is at 8.9% (really 17%).

    Obamaism is like a disease, and the only cure is send Barry packing back to Chi-Town in 2012.

    Yep, she’ll vote for Obama again, because it’s all Bush’s fault…no, it’s the oil companies fault…no it’s the speculators…
