    Fuck You America


    This is what the Obama Administration is saying to anyone who says if they were president they could lower the price of gas.

    Jay Carney said the administration will try to "mitigate the effects" of high gas prices, but they don't want to talk about lowering prices and he also said anyone else who says they can get prices back down is lying.

    Well folks, as long as Obama is president forget about lower gas prices. He's not gonna even try to deal with it. Just get used to it. That is what they're saying. He can't do anything about it and don't ask him to lift a finger to try.



    If they're talking like this during an election year imagine what's coming next year once he figures he doesn't have to answer to the voters anymore. Trust me, come next year we are really in for it.

    The best way to lower gas prices is open the floodgates for domestic drilling all over the U.S. There are plenty of drilling rigs owned by domestic family drilling services ready to go. Cut drilling regulations as well as refining regulations.

    Let's see, what was the price of gas when Obama took office?

    Feeling pain at the pump? Gas prices have doubled since Mr. Obama took office. According to the GasBuddy gasoline price tracking web site, the price of a gallon of regular gas was around $1.79 when Mr. Obama took office. Today the national average is $3.58. The lowest average price in the continental United States is $3.31 in Tulsa Oklahoma, the highest is $4.14 in Santa Barbara, CA. Four-dollar-a-gallon gas has arrived on average throughout California, and a number of other states are headed in that direction.

    I don't think the people care anymore what Obama and his lapdogs have to say.

    The price of gas has been over $3 for 2 years. It has never dipped below that since. Obama wants that to be the new floor. Eventually he'll want the floor to be $5.

    He figures we'll just get used to it.

    Face it folks.....Obama wants high prices.

    Newt said this morning he's willing to debate Obama at any rig, any gas-station, or anywhere about how to lower gas prices.

    He says Obama doesn't even want to try to lower prices and he says he's offended by the fact that Obama is calling him a liar.

    Obama will never have the guts to debate him.

    Wasn't high gas prices Bushs fault?

    Didn't the left shit on him when he decided not to release the reserves at lower prices?

    And now they are claiming that the Pres has no effect on the cost of gas?


    yes they did and yes they are.

    2008:

    "No president has the power to increase or lower gas prices. Those are market forces!" -Cal Thomas speaking on FOX

    "The next time you hear a politician say he or she will bring down oil prices, understand it's complete B.S." -Bill O'Reilly


    NOW:

    "Tomorrow President Obama will speak in Miami about gas prices. But he is likely to have no solutions. However, if the Obama administration wanted to, it could ask Congress to raise export taxes on the oil companies to encourage them to sell their products here. Think about it. The oil companies are regulated by the federal government. They can't drill on land nor in American waters without permission from the feds. Many Republicans want to drill baby drill but what's the point if all the oil goes to China? Increased production obviously doesn't mean lower prices for us." -O'Reilly

    I can't disagree with Obama on this one.

    However, I do disagree that he's in any way responsible for increased drilling and production in this country.

    I also believe that he's the greatest threat to what is currently one of the very few sectors of the economy that is thriving, hiring, succeeding, and contributing real value to the GDP.

    Obama would not know growth in any commodities market and what policies strengthen and encourage growth and what don't.
    But he has not any influence on the price of gas also.

    The closing of the Bahamian refinery and the one up outside of the Delawareriver near Philadelphia and the Dupont plant up there did more to raise the price than anything.
    No offense to you drilling promoters as that would be great but that is not the problem now. We could drill and drill and drill and it makes no difference as supply is not the problem. There is now a shit load of oil out there to be sold not at the spicket. The problems are the different blends we have to make for each region of the country at different times of the year and the backlog of refining the oil to gasoline.
    PLenty of oil and not enough gas.
