Gasoline went from 1.85 to 4.15. Sundae at McDonalds went from 1.00 to 1.49
Less inflation, my ass.

You do know that the inflation for the past 4 years is a lot less than it was for the previous 4 or 8, right?

We got comfortable, and let the communists come in. And the socialists.

Not hard to do when you have an economy so rocky that there is a year of deflation. Other than that year (2009) and the following year, President Obama had the two highest rates of inflation during the period in question (back to 2002).

Where did you get those numbers? http://www.usinflationcalculator.com/inflation/current-inflation-rates / Shows the highest 3 years [2002-2011] as 2004, 5, & 7.
In 8 years Bush stayed under 2% twice-- Obama already has 2 <2% years. Next week we'll see if he makes it 3.
I didn't see a nice easy graph on the BLS site-- but they have a calculator. $20 2002 = $22.06 in 2005 $20 2005 = $21.95 in 2009 $20 2009 = $21.48 2012
So he's still got a year to go-- but there is certainly no rampant inflation happening in the past 4 years.
