Gibson's Gloomy Hello On ABC: Thank Your Stars If You Can Afford Heat

After a show-opening promo of a segment on frigid winter temperatures, ABC "Good Morning America" co-host Charles Gibson's first words this morning were:

Boy, these are the days when you’re thankful if you have enough money to pay your heating bill. Good Morning, America, good to have you with us.

That's an odd hello, since temperatures recently have been warm for winter and oil prices have slumped a bit in response.

Are we just trying to keep persuading America that the economy's in a dumpster?
