How do we get $2 gas? Apparently electing Michele Bachmann as president is the trick!

I was sent this piece today from CNN Money.  If this is correct, it seems Michele Bachmann is making some interesting claims in her race to the top.

She claims she’ll bring the prices of gas back to $2.00

“Under President Bachmann you will see gasoline come down below $2 a gallon again,” Bachmann told a crowd Tuesday in South Carolina. “That will happen.”

Now look here, most of us hate how much we are paying for gas right now, but nationalizing oil (as Chavez announced Venezuela is doing with gold) will not bring down gas prices.  Does Michele Bachmann plan on regulating oil prices?

This does not sound like someone who claims “When I go on vacation and I lay on the beach, I bring von Mises.”

Then again, most the people I know would have said simply “Mises”… Maybe what she’s really saying here is that she hasn’t been to the beach since that one summer when she was 15…
