Anyone who buys into this stuff is on a permanent intellectual vacation. Economy Watch - Obama's oil market plan more politics than substance Is Obama kidding? He must think the American people are mind numbed gnats. Or perhaps he thinks this of his voting base. If Obama was genuinely concerned about gas prices he'd have addressed this months ago. Instead he waits until there is political mileage to be gained he swoops in and pretends HE is there to save us all. What a bullshit artist. Next thing we will hear is the Commodities traders deliberately drove up prices JUST to ruin Obama's chances at a second term. It is not speculation or the marketplace. It is Obama's anti oil/gasoline agenda and his idiotic "green energy" crap that caused markets to react.
