    Mitt "Pick a Nunber" Romney

    Really Mitt?

    So the President controls the GLOBAL market that is petroleum? OPEC I guess has nothing to do with oil prices, the President sets the price, right? And if he's doing his job right - it will go down - no matter what the entire rest of the world does.

    Got it!

    Oh, so America becoming a net producer of petroleum wouldn't have a positive effect on prices?

    Who is it here that doesn't know anything about economics? :lol:

    The only way America will become a net producer of petroleum is if we seriously cut our consumption of it, and that's something Pick A Number Etch A Sketch isn't interested in.

    I like how the right wing things they can balance a financial budget by ONLY cutting outlays while they think they can balance a petroleum import/export deficit by ONLY increasing production.

    Clearly, you're an economic nincompoop, who quite probably barely made it out of high school. :lol:

    That has nothing to do with the government. It has to do with oil companies and market speculators ad the world market. The price of gas is just another the sitting POTUS gets blamed for. But he gets no credit for them going down.

    When he has done everything to stand in the way of domestic production, he damn sure shares the blame.

    Please show us the math that indicates we can balance our petroleum import/export deficit without reducing the consumption.

    I'm guessing its "Pick a Number, say 25000" kinda math you'll use.
