    I almost busted out loud laughing about the irony of this statement from Obama:

    Course the funny thing about it is the White House is who's taking advantage of this for the long haul. He's been talking about the advantages of higher prices. Now he's really going to do something about it.

    As usual the focus will be on rich speculators and traders, so Obama is taking advantage of this and eventually he'll be talking his usual class-warfare crap.

    Oh good, the White House is on it.

    They're thinking positive:

    Obama loves high gas prices - Bing Images

    What???

    No chance they'll come down???

    I guess they didn't say anything about them not going up even more. They're already hitting $5 dollars in Washington DC.

    Talks about a dammned demigogue? "We are going to make sure that no one is taking advantage of the American people for their own short-term gain,"

    What does he think he's doing with his present energy policy? He's the root CAUSE of it.

    No, it's speculators.

    They've already decided on a scapegoat.

    It's not Libya or the Middle East being on fire or the drilling ban, it's speculators.

    According to Saudi Arabia the world supply is not the problem.

    I haven't heard any news that the demand for oil has increased. Do you think that with all the dollars they have been printing, --Maybe, is it possible, Could it be inflation?

    Well that only effects the price if you're buying from outside the country, you know, like Brazil.

    Brazil sounds real nice right about now. Colombia, not so much...


    Then again maybe Obama got Colombia and the District of Columbia mixed up when he made the decision to send that refinery there. That's an easy mistake to make... DC is one of our 57 states don't ya know?
