    That's funny...I was having this same conversation with one of my sales guys this morning.
    If Bush was President right now - record high gas prices would be all the rage. But instead all we get are 5 second mere mentioning of gas prices in the media.
    but remember folks...there is no bias in the media...Obama is treated just like any other candidate.

    When you go to the pump and you see the incredibly high prices for gas, you can rest assured in your minds that Barry and his boys absolutely want gasoline to be this high. I really have no doubt that they wouldn't mind it to go even higher.

    To believe, even remotely, that the President of the United States has no power over the price of gas is ludicrous.

    You don't have to doubt it. He said it on camera as a senator and as a candidate. However he certainly doesn't want it right now for obvious reasons. You don't see him parading around about the connection between green energy and gas priced right now because a) his administration was involved in giving $millions to 4 failed green energy companies where the owners and executives made off with $millions of taxpayer dollars - and b) Americans only think about the here and now - and now they DREAD going to the gas station.
