    Does this mean our economy is tanking again??

    According to Obama it is! Gee, I hope it doesn't go any lower!!!!!!

    Today gas in town is down to 3.54! It hasn't been that low in it seems FOREVER.
    But, it IS election season! Lol! I'm sure this won't last and our economy will be much better for it! :)

    Obama's Brutal Gaffe: Low Gas Prices Cratered Our Economy

    He said when I took office, the price of gasoline was $1.80, $1.86. Why is that? Because the economy was on the verge of collapse, because we were about to go through the worst recession since the Great Depression, as a consequence of some of the same policies that Governor Romney's now promoting. So, it's conceivable that Governor Romney could bring down gas prices because with his policies, we might be back in that same mess.

    In other words, bringing down gas prices by drilling creates economic recession. That was Obama’s argument.

    Does anyone think this president understands basic economics?

    Wow, Crusader. That comment is so well-reasoned and unbiased that it's worthy of being cross-stitched and put on a wall. (Except that it's just as mindless as the zombies you complain of)

    Obama is a total fucking retard. Complete, total fucking retard.

    He's done all he can to transform us into a nation of stupid, government dependent losers. Only in the Neo-Marxist enclave of the small minded, does it make sense to express pride in dependency and demean the accomplishments of business people and entrepreneurs, "you didn't build that!"

    There's a reason he considers the private sector "behind enemy lines". It's because he's brainwashed in Marxism and does not know the first fucking thing about the US economy.

    You support him and are defending him, must mean you're a fucking moron too. Go call Daily Kos on your Obamaphone and ask them how to respond

    As I pointed out in another thread about this exact same topic, Obama is not totally off the mark.
    The weakened world economies resulted in reduced demand for oil and prices fell.

    The rest of his blather is utter bullshit, and yes he's a total fucking retard but again he wasn't totally off the mark.

    The reason gas is $4/gallon and cereal boxes are shrinking and a pound of coffee is now 12 ounces is because of the massive inflationary policies of the Fed
