    Wallace used to try to hide the fact that he is a tool. No longer!

        Would be more useful if, when providing anecdotal information about local food or gas prices and changes, folks would mention the general location where they are shopping.

        Prices in north central Maryland have not gone down, are still rising, although at a much slower pace, and gasoline has risen over the past 6 weeks from 2.15 to 2.39 gallon for regular unleaded. Note: Gasoline prices vary greatly between states due to state taxes but rise/fall trends should apply across wider areas.

            FTA Changing Seasons, Changing Gas Prices
            Quote Refinery maintenance, production of summer-blend fuels and consumer demand can affect gasoline prices in the springtime.
            Traditionally, gas prices at their lowest during the first week of February and then begin to climb, often peaking right before Memorial Day. Seasonal gasoline demand is a factor, but there also are other market-related events that historically impact gas prices in the springtime.
            Since 2000, gas prices have increased about 50 cents from the seasonal low at the beginning of February to the seasonal high in mid-May. Here’s a timeline of events that can affect gas prices during the first half of the year. end qoute

        Isa – I got gas today at $2.15 for regular and saw it advertised for as low as $2.13. Housing is in such high demand in my area you can’t even find any – new rental units going up EVERYWHERE and they are charging anywhere from $1500/month to $2100/month for two and three bedroom units. Our state actually came in with a record budget surplus for the year.

    Is it just me, or has Larry gotten really puffy? I had to do a double take. Perhaps negative aftermath of his heart attack. I hope he’s OK.

    My guess is he is puffy b/c of cardiac medications he may be taking. He sounded good and strong though.

    I noticed Wallace showed him more deference than he usually does “POTUS’ people”
    but as usual he leads with the negative framing of the questions. Kudlow countered Wallace well, however.

    That slime Wallace was openly rooting for the economy to fail. He expounded on every negative. Kudlow did a masterful job though for those with the intellect to follow. ( eg..the loons).

    Mr. Wallace is a great set up for Larry Kudlow’s presentation. Those are bowling pins he is setting up, not counter-sunk fence pillars. Larry stays on target. Strike.

    I thought Kudlow did an overall fair job, but he missed a key opportunity when Wallace made the point about people in a stronger economy having the purchasing power to buy more foreign goods and drive up the trade deficit. Wallace asked how that could be seen as “weak economy”, the charge made by the Administration because of the large trade deficit.

    The “weakness” of the economy is precisely because the people were driven to buy foreign products because Americans don’t produce enough of what people want to buy. The weakness stems from our dependence on foreign manufacturing. Kudlow totally missed it.
    Otherwise, for the rest of the interview, Larry was ok.

      The real missed opportunity in my opinion is not pointing out that European policies are across the board Democratic Party policies, whatn the Democtrats would love to be doing here, from addressing climate change via energy strangulation to hyper-regulating anything with a pulse. Europe cannot afford American goods, which exacerbates the trade deficit, because European economies are sclerotic and moribund. The Democrats would therefore appear to want Americans to be unable to afford American products.

      To paraphrase the old joke, if the Democrats didn’t have awful European standards of economic growth to imitate they would have no standards at all.

      Yes, another inconvenient truth, GB.
      I don’t think the trade deficit gets fixed for a while.
      We’ve been in this mess for 50 years.
      In my opinion as a consumer of 50 years.
      We make everything better than Europe,
      At least the products we still make.
      Like airplanes, all IT and cars, especially trucks and SUV’s.
      When we started buying the subsided wood products from Canada.
      Everything they made was crap. Most of the Canadian cabinet Co.’ s are gone.
      It’s another part of the unfair trade agreements that hurt the quality of products.
      Regulation is still locking up competition.

      The day I see a building full of MRI machines for $500 a pop.
      The day I can buy health insurance from a lizard.
      The day Doctors are picked by their performance.
      Then I’ll know the change is real.

      But gas has been flat for as long as I can remember.
      That is because we are “Drilling our way out of high prices.”
      One Crony corporatist at a time.

    Chris Wallace will obviously be a rat in the next life. His face is morphing already.
    His nose has that little rat twitch.
    He is growing new rat teeth, and
    a little rat tail. The rat hairs
    will be along shortly.

    Sundance – It is time for you to re-post your instructional posts on how tariffs are being used to force balanced trade. The radio news decepticons are blaming Q1 ‘slow’ performance on them and I fear people are believing them.

    Thanks for what you do and for allowing comments.
