    During the increases in the gas prices, all repubs were placing the blame on Obama. Odd, since in 2004 as prices got to around $4/gallon, the same repubs said that the president (Bush) could do nothing about gas prices. It was out of a presidents control, they said.
    But this time, the repubs were all over gas price issues blaming this pres for making it happen. And they were on it as soon as prices started up.

    Now, for the past 3 weeks or so, prices of gas have been falling. So, where are the repubs now? Should they not be praising the pres for lower gas prices?

    Maybe it just slipped their mind.

    Thanks to Bush pushing Ethanol, Off Shore Drilling & Fracking. Now Obama can act like he did it & seek the praise.

    Spoken like a true con. Not true, but great bobble head response. And, nothing to do with the statement.

    In the summer of 2008, prices hit $4.12 on average, as opposed to this latest increase this year to $3.87. So what is your excuse then??
    Quick, check with your tea party mentor, he can come up with an answer for you.

    Sorry, don't intend to be insulting. I just hate dogma, and mindless regurgitation.

    Totally untrue. But so much like a con. Say it and believe it. To hell with any evidence.

    Let's see, my Tundra has a 26 gallon tank.

    Gas is $3.30 here.

    26 X 3.30 = $85.50 for a fill-up.

    What's Obama's number. I'd like to call him and personally thank him for this miraculous accomplishment.

    (fucking idiot)

    It is customary, when calling someone a liar, to include facts supporting that claim. Merely saying it is typical behavior of Conservatives is not sufficient.

    President Bush had a big surprise waiting for crude oil speculators on Monday July 14th 2008. Bush lifted the Executive Order banning drilling in the OCS & on that day crude oil fell & kept falling. Oil prices slid $112 from $147 to $35 & remained at those mid $30 lows until Obama took office.

    [​IMG][/QUOTE]

    Oil was $35 & gas Price was $1.83 when Obama took office. Then the asshole decides to use his administration to slow the growing production rate in order to drive up oil prices to pay back his cronie Wallstreet Banker buddies who bought him the presidency by contributing heavily to his campaign. Yes - Wallstreet Bankers own way fucking more oil & infrastructure than the oil companies do.

    February 10, 2009 - Secretary Salazar announces he will delay the Bush Administration 5-year plan for oil and natural gas development on the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf for six months. He begins a “listening tour” in spite of the fact that the Bush Administration had already solicited public opinion on this plan.

    Obamas Top Contributors that Bought his Presidency.
    University of California $1,648,685
    Goldman Sachs $1,013,091
    Harvard University $878,164
    Microsoft Corp $852,167
    Google Inc $814,540
    JPMorgan Chase & Co $808,799
    Citigroup Inc $736,771
    Sidley Austin LLP $600,298
    Stanford University $595,716
    WilmerHale LLP $550,668
    Columbia University $547,852
    Skadden, Arps et al $543,539

    General Electric $529,855
