    Barack Obama's 'Gradual Adjustment' to Higher Gas Prices - Standard Newswire

    What is amazing is most Liberals have zero idea what Obama has said in the past. During the run up to the election the fawning press failed us on a massive scale in regards our current President.

    This was posted last year and I believe in 2008 as well. Yet some liberal DEMANDS a link when told about it. Here is a current link.

    Here let me give it to you again.

    Note to the Left:

    There is as yet no Magic Energy that will replace fossil fuels. It's amazingly short-sighted and stupid to prevent their use until economical, scalable alternatives are found.

    So stop it.

    So naturally Obama is secretly ordering the CIA, his SIEU thugs, and Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright's love child to blow up underwater oil caps and California neighborhoods. You know, to push their agenda ahead a bit faster ...

    What exactly is the fixation with higher gasoline prices? They will fluxuate regardless of U.S. energy policy. Gas prices are secondary to the importance of the health of the petroleum industry as a whole.

    I'm all for increasing federal taxes on gasoline in order to raise government revenues and reduce demand.

    But thanks Sgt for bringing up the subject.

    The story mentions a $15 billion "windfall profits" tax on oil. But it fails to address the over $40 billion in taxes the government intends to collect by cutting the rug out from under the oil and gas businesses in this country by way of retracting long-standing tax provisions.

    If we want to raise revenues and decrease demand, then slap a tariff on imported oil. Don't conjur some fucked up policy that will first and foremost penalize U.S. oil companies.

    Who's doing all the drilling in the U.S.? Independents. They drill over 80% of the wells in this country. Not "big oil".

    This is not about whether the Government had anything to do with 3 different explosions, This is about Obama announcing he would bankrupt Coal, Oil and natural gas if he could. And about the press not even covering it the next day in the story.

    The interview was on Jan 17 2008 at the San Francisco Chronicle and the paper version was on the 18th.

    This is about the fact that Luissa and the rest of you liberals have no idea what Obama actual said and wants to do.

    Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure it is, RGS ... and my birthday is September 9, 2010.

    It has everything to do with what you claim and this has nothing to do whatsoever with your crackpot "truffer style" theory from the other thread that Obama is behind the BP explosion and this California neighborhood that blew up. No siree, no at all.

    I monitor oil and gas news sites and they were on this from the git go. But you're right- main stream media gave it no never mind. Same as it's been for the 30 years I've been on it.
