    He is trying to bring down gas prices while the pubs work to keep prices high.

    Just one more reason for the rw's to want to get wealthy Mittens in the white house so our taxes can subsidies going to Big Business.

    Idiot gullible dupes.

    Obama did not help himself with energy of any sort over the last three years. It's hurt him in the eyes of the American people. With the EPA strangling the coal industry with new regulations. Now, he's doing damage control during an election year. This is the most transparent he's been. No surprise to me

    He's going to double down on Jimmy Carter. Take us from expensive gas to none at all.

    Democrats can't really claim that they believe that ending subsidies won't result in the additional expense being passed on to the public can they? Would they really be THAT stupid?

    I heard obama's statement, his solution is for Americans to buy not only a new car but a new house too. He is either stupid or actually insane if he thinks that ending oil subsidies means that more money will be available for his phony green energy programs. If he is, then we can't wait for November. He's incapable of being president today.

    They really couldn't care less if their talking points are valid.

    They just want them to be loud.

    It does seem to be the American way to give tax breaks and such to those who need them the least.

    Would you rather see oil profits be given to the fat cats in the form of dividends, or re-invested in finding us more energy?

    Or perhaps you don't understand the dynamics of this at all?

    WTF is an "oil subsidy"?
