    Beautiful! Now let's see how long it takes the Pubs to bring out their own ads ripping this video to pieces.

    They've been doing a fantastic job so far using nothing but Obama's own words against him.

    First, Obama took office in Jan 2009, not 2008. The financial meltdown had not yet reached its peak by Jan 2009. Everybody knew that the UE rate was going to rise.

    And the $2.28 gas prices? :lol: What were gas prices before Obama took office? According to this chart, in July 2008 gas prices were over $4.00 per gal -- even more than they are now.

    And what caused them to drop from over 4.00 per gal to under 2.00 per gal in a mere few months? Bush's policies?

    Did everybody know that a record number of people of working age were going to be removed from the Labor Force Participation Rate so that the unemployment numbers would appear lower than they actually are? Where did those 9 million people, since Obama took office, disappear to?

    The average gas price under Bush's eight years calculates to approximately $2.55 per gallon...what has it averaged under Obama's three years?

    A better question is how much influence Barry has over his energy secretary, that clown Chu who said he thinks we should be paying what Europeans do for a gallon of gas, circa 8-9 bucks.

    Wouldn't it be better to compare the first three years
    to the other's first three years
