Oil Prices: Another Glaring Example of Liberal Hypocrisy Oil prices top $104 a barrel, highest since 2008 NEW YORK Oil prices rose past $104 a barrel to end the week at a 29-month high, as fighting in Libya intensified and the world's largest petroleum consumer, the U.S., reported that employers added nearly 200,000 new jobs in February. http://www.usatoday.com/money/indust...l-friday_N.htm when this happened under bush....you couldn't turn the channel or surf the net without hearing how this was all bush's fault. be it his ties to the oil companies or the undeclared wars in iraq and afghanistan (probably more iraq)....now....a dem president i don't see or hear any blame thrown obama's way. the left was in an uproar the last time this happened. why the silence now? why does obama get a pass?
