    The screaming crowds and near Elvis-fanfare that greeted Obama as he campaigned across America in 2008, began dying down in late 2009 and have been reduced to nothing more than a whimper in 2012. He is no longer the juggernaut on an upward trajectory: rather, he’s the man who promised hope and change but delivered Fast and Furious. He’s the propagandist for government sponsored green energy programs that are going belly-up at a record pace, and the author of economic policies that have kept unemployment above 8% since February 2009. He so badly wants to hear Farrakhan use the word “messiah” when referencing him again, but the Nation of Islam leader who said he heard the messiah speak when Obama spoke in 2008 has since called Obama “a murderer.”

    Gas prices are up over 80% on Obama’s watch, yet his approach to gasoline remains unchanged. Which means we continue to buy our gasoline from many of the same countries that can’t wait to see a nuclear weapon detonated in an American city. So oil is over $100 a barrel, and parts of our country are already paying $4 a gallon for gasoline, while Obama continues to ignore the misery such prices are sure to bring to the middle-class families he claims to be looking out for.

    read it all with comments.

    Stephanie, child, go back to school and learn to read and use a computer and stop depending on FOXNEWS and RUSh for your facts.:cuckoo:

    Obama do not control the price of oil. We export more oil that we import. We don't have a shortage of oil. WE already get oil from Canada so why do we need a pipeline? Because LX pipeline is not for our benefit but Canada's.
    XL pipelline is the biggest scam played on the American stupid.

    StupidOlLady....

    Stop telling people to not watch Fox and then post this kind of drivel.

    Texas refineries have "soured" up meaning they have invested a lot of money in the necessary hydroprocessing needed to deal with sour crudes which they can get at a discount compared to sweet crudes. In fact, a lot of the new sweet finds are going to be exported from Texas...

    But gulf coast refineries don't want that stuff. They built to get the cheap stuff and that is what they want.

    Get a clue.

    I wonder what’s going on in my beloved America! It seems our politicians are completely absorbed by solving problems around the world not within US. They talk about rights of Libyans, Syrians or someone else oftener than about problems of America. So patriotic... The things occurring with America today remind me of USSR in time of Gorbachev, when Soviet Union at the background of crisis instead of carrying out reforms engaged into military conflicts in other countries. US are doing the same now. Not surprising that Americans hitting the bricks and demand to observe their constitutional rights. It’ll be ironic if US will end up as USSR did and that might happen...

    I post links to everything. Unlike most Republicans on this board. Even they are embarrassed by Fox news and the Heritage Foundation.

    You guys call me liar. You scream and rant. But when have you proven me wrong. Not called me wrong, but offered legitimate proof?
