Bachmann prediction of doom fails to come true

That almost doesn’t even seem worthy of a headline.

Dump Bachmann must have been digging around its archives, because it’s got a post up about Bachmann’s apocalyptic predictions about what would happen if Obama got elected. Health care for poor people has passed (THE HORROR!!1!), but one thing that has not come true is Bachmann’s prediction that gas prices would hit $5 a gallon if he was elected.

“This is their agenda,” Bachmann states bluntly. “I know it is hard to believe, it’s hard to fathom — but this is ‘mission accomplished’ for them,” she asserts. “They want Americans to take transit and move to the inner cities. They want Americans to move to the urban core, live in tenements, [and] take light rail to their government jobs. That’s their vision for America.”Bachmann predicts gasoline will rise above $5 a gallon if Barack Obama is elected president.

We actually think it would be nice to live in the middle of the city and take light rail to work, but we can’t afford it because the “urban core” areas are full of fancy, expensive lofts, not the tenements she invokes. Also, there’s not too much light rail in most cities. But in any case, gas prices are not only not at $5 a gallon, but actually below their peak during the Bush administration.
