    ......ABOUT THE FRIGGIN' PRICE OF GASOLINE SITUATION?

    Seriously, this is as big a threat to our economy as anything else. Where is Obama on this issue. What are his plans to deal with it?

    Does he even have a plan?

    Summer is right around the corner. We all know what happens to prices when Summer comes. We're looking at possible 5-6-7 dollars a gallon. It's a friggin' disaster. What is Obama going to do about it, beyond making ridiculous campaign style speeches like the drivel he delivered on Wednesday?

    And, where is the outrage from the Obamabots on this issue?...... Not one word from you gullible clowns. When prices strted spikiong under Bush, you folls were cackling like the one legged hens we all know you to be......Where's the outrage now that it has only gotten worse under Obama?

    What can he do? He doesn't control the price of gas and your beloved oil companies have a million reasons why you have to drop your pants and bend over at the pump.

    Speculation
    Middle east unrest or something
    Demand too much
    demand too low
    Cost of pumping
    Its the summer

    Its the winter

    OK, what do you want him to do? He could nationalize the oil industry...thats a nonviable option. He could declare war on the OPEC nations... don't have the money for that. He could open up the national reserves and run it dry... still won't bring down prices. He could give more tax cuts to the oil company to lower prices, and maybe their record profits of the last few years will get broken. He could open up drilling to anywhere the oil companies decide its worth drilling... immenint domain is a great thing. Really what do you want him to do?

    GWB got so much flack because all of his options leaned towords making the oil companies even more money than they were already making. Not bringing prices down for the consumer.

    Oil should not be a commodity to be speculated on, because it makes our economy unstable.

    How about tapping into our reserves during the summer months to ease the pain?......Our reserves won't take much of a hit whatsoever during a three month opening, and prices would go down. Not only at the pump, but in many other areas also.

    How about issuing more drilling permits to start providing for ourselves in the future, and getting off of foreign oil?.....There are no other viable alternatives in the near future whatsoever. We are an oil driven nation, and will be for many years to come. It's about time we start providing for our own, and get off the liberal fantasy trip.

    I want to see Obama grow some fucking balls and start acting like a damn president. This is as serious an issue as there is economically, and all we have from him is, nothing but a pep talk to Brazil.

    There is not inflation. The fact that prices on every consumable is going up and up is just an illusion.

    Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

    How about Obama just pass a law that the global gas prices don't apply to us?
