C’mon Man!

President Biden uses that slang phrase often when annoyed by a reporter’s question. 

The phrase came to mind when the official White House Twitter account bragged that the cost of a Fourth of July barbeque was 16 cents lower than a year ago.

No mention that the Consumer Price Index, a basket of goods and services, including food costs and energy, jumped five percent in May from a year ago.  That’s the fastest annual rate since 2008.

Gasoline was up 56 percent year over year. Shelter costs up 2.2 percent. Airline fares up 24 percent. Used cars and truck prices up 29 percent.

But don’t forget about that 16 cents you saved on that holiday barbeque.

As the president says, C’mon Man!
