Here’s a “careful what you wish for” moment from Joanne Dowdell, who recently announced she would enter the race for Congress in NH-01, a seat currently held by Republican Frank Guinta.

In 2008 Dowdell was asked why she would nominate Barack Obama for President during the Democratic convention.

“He’s the only one with the proven judgement and leadership skills to get the job done. I’m sorry, I don’t know about you, but I don’t like paying $4 a gallon for gas.”

Cost of gas at the Gulf station on Elm Street in Manchester, NH?

$4.06 per gallon.
