Michele Bachmann's Baseless Two Dollar ( $2 ) Gas Claim

Michele Bachmann's Baseless Two Dollar ( $2 ) Gas Claim
Michele Bachman was in South Carolina on Tuesday, and made this amusing campaign promise: "under President Bachamann, you will see gasoline come down below two dollars a gallon again. That will happen." Now before you get excited about her promise, keep in mind Bachmann has a vivid history of saying pretty idiotic things. Couple days back, she messed up Elvis' birthday with his date of death.

CNN's Chief Business Correspondent Ali Velshi cuts through Bachmann's BS and set the record straight: "[it's a ]baseless claim. Not doable. The only way you can bring gas price to two dollars is if you cut the price of a barrel of oil more than in half. And the likely way to get there is a global depression, not just a recession."
