    And he's supposed to be a law professor? LMFAO!

    There maybe no "magic bullet", but there's a little something called "antitrust law" that his justice dept. should look into. Especially when big oil annually rake in billions of dollars of profit when there's no sign of crisis or crude shortage. There maybe crisis, but it's generated by big oil greed doing business and colluding with certain dictators deemed part of the "axis of evil". In order to keep the fear alive and the profits rolling.

    No one has the guts to fool with the fragile house of cards known as the petrodollar. We are stuck with the parasitic curse of the energy economy, anyone who claims they can touch it is lying.

    He's such a leader.

    What were we paying for gas under GW Bush? What was it, a whopping 2.10 at it's highest?

    Maybe Obama can set up a few windmills and save a snail-darter to get those prices back down

    Idiotic....

    PS - home values continue to suck ass, but I guess 4 years later, that's still Bush's fault

    Anyone who thinks we don't have enough oil to drill here in the USA to sustain ourselves into infinity, is a flaming fucking imbecile.

    This whole sham of a democratic government and it's policies are coordinated and scripted.

    Perhaps YOU should look into the 'profits' big gubmint makes through taxation/regulation of the product? Far more than the oil companies make.

    Try $4.50 a gallon.

    Lets not let your partisan stupidity be the judge of you. Oops, too late!

    If there weren't shortages of oil relative to rising global demand, it wouldn't be possible for big oil to rake in those huge gouging profits in the first place. It's not like there's a monopoly.

    There is a magic bullet, though: reduce demand for oil by switching to renewable energy and improving efficiency. If Obama failed to see that, he's wrong.
