    President Barack Obama on Wednesday made fun of foes who promise "three-point plans for two dollar gas," aiming to deflect election year attacks sparked by rising gas prices.

    "This is not the first time we've seen gas prices spike," Obama said, as drivers face pump prices averaging $3.80 a gallon across the country.

    "The next time you hear some politician trotting out some three-point plan for $2 gas -- you let them know we know better," Obama told a supportive crowd.

    "Tell them we're tired of hearing phony election-year promises that never come about."


    :muahaha:

    Barry, get a clue. If it weren't for phoney election-year promises you'd have nothing to say.....ever.

    But it seems like Obama is saying we might as well forget about $2/gal gas......at least as long as he's president.

    A few weeks ago Obama said he has no control over the price of gas.

    Now he's gonna try to convince us he's doing everything in his power to control it.....but it is a hopeless cause........just deal with it.




    Before he was elected it was......[​IMG]

    Now it's.......Why We Couldn't

    Yes or no.

    Domestic production at the present time is greater then when George W. Bush was President?

    It's a binary questions. A simple yes or no..will do.

    He's right. Speculators, OPEC and the political environment in places like Iran, determine gas prices. I've also heard that we have cheaper gas than Europe does because we give subsidies to big oil. US production isn't the determining factor either. US production has increased significantly under the Obama administration.

    Is increasing domestic production the only way to control the price?

    No.

    If Domestic production is up, how much is it up? And because the oil we produce isn't all sold here but on the world market that isn't going to help. You have to make it worthwhile for oil companies to sell more of their product here......but then that would be tax-cuts for the rich wouldn't it??

    Yes it is greater then Bush.

    NOW simple question:
    WHO opened more Federal Land to development that has CREATED more production?
    Simply binary question BUSH or Obama?

    Simple binary question..
    WHICH President's EPA shut down more refineries(See St. Croix 350,000 barrels/day)
    shut down Shell's $4 billion Alaska drilling because it MIGHT hurt 240 eskimos 70 miles away!!
    BUSH or Obama Again which one said
    So, if somebody wants to build a coal[electric utility] plant, they can it’s just that it will bankrupt them,!"

    Simply binary questions!!!

    One thing everyone is ignoring is during an emergency you have to be able to run the economy off of what you can get at when everyone else cuts us off. At least make an effort to assure that in the worst case scenario you will have a safe source of energy.

    Obama seems to do everything to prevent that ether by design or whatever. He is trying to boost the price of gas so alternative energy will be more affordable in comparison. The side-effect of that is we are worse off if our present sources were to be cut off.

    mud, I guess you will be voting for the eye of Newt. He has claimed he will be bringing back 2 dollar a gallon gas.

    How will he do that? Do you know?

    And have you seen the FOX tape where the wonderful hosts were defending George Bush when gas prices were so high. They claim, on air for all to see if they look, that Presidents have no control over gas prices. Unless the Presidents name is Obama.

    So which is it. Control or no control, according to FOX?

    And I am sure with your no bias opinions that you prolly don't watch FOX or listen to Rush, so if you can't answer I understand. Maybe someone eles will know. Gotta be a few FOX viewers on here.

    Obama is correct.

    Those on the right who expect to get $2 gas back are either delusional, lying or stupid.
    Or perhaps all 3?

    Those are the facts folks.

    I know how Newt will bring back 2. a gal gas.

    He will cripple the economy to the point there is virtually no economic growth and consequesntly no growing demand for oil and lo and behold the price of gas will come down.

    Just like it did when it became apparent that George Bush had crippled the economy.

    No wait, Newt is gonna flood the worlds energy markets with overwhelming supplies of cheap American crude. And all the oil companies will sell it dirt cheap to Americans. Hell, under newt, the oil companies will be sending Americans rebate checks from the oil companies.

    If onlyt Newt could get elected.
