    Obama to address gas prices, pitch energy policy | Political Headlines | Comcast
    President Barack Obama is confronting Americans' anxiety over rising gasoline prices by drawing attention to his energy policies and taking credit for rising oil and gas production, a greater mix of energy sources and decreased consumption.

    Obama is heading to Florida on Thursday to promote an energy strategy that the administration says will reduce dependence on foreign oil in the long term. But Obama's pitch will also have a subtext: that the federal government can do little to halt the current rise in gasoline prices.

    What guy , leading the sheep right off the cliff:cuckoo:

    He has no claim to rising oil production, but can take credit for policies and a budget that will stifle both oil AND natural gas production.

    Get ready for the spin, folks. The sad thing is, there are plenty of morons out there that will lap it up like manna.

    Nothing is his fault, but if we just give him total power he will make everything better.

    Remember this is from an Administration that believes the Failed Stimulus failed because it wasn't big enough to fund nonexistent "Shovel ready" projects and that unemployment stimulates the economy.

    That's how you rack up annual trillion + deficits and get our first every credit downgrade

    Obama's latest spin- take away "loopholes" from hydrocarbons in order to apply "incentives" to renewables and alternatives. :lol:

    Funny how ordinary business decuctions as applied to oil and gas are called "loopholes", but those same deductions for other industries are not even addressed.

    When's the last time (if ever) an oil or gas company was awarded a guaranteed government loan?
