The National Review's Jim Geraghty found an article in the Washington Post titled, "Voters blame president for gas prices, experts say not so fast" -- and spotted a clear case of liberal bias.

Well of course it's Obama's fault, Geraghty wants us to believe -- just look at these facts. Then, with a little bait and switch (let's just call 2001 and 2008 averages, and mix those in with the single years--no one will notice!) -- and presto: it's all Obama's fault.

Of course, gas prices nearly tripled under Bush/Cheney -- but Jim undoubtedly blames the Sierra Club and Nancy Pelosi for that.

Can you help us out?
