    This theard is not meant in defence of Obama, (since he didn't help either) but rather to avoid repeating our recent American history of electing more of the same (People VS media)

    A US president has little control over world oil prices.

    What a stupid topic. Without BIG SERIOUS investments in oil here at home we have little impact on the market. Both presidents had a failed energy policy, although Obamas has cost us taxpayers a fortune in failed investments that had little to do with oil or gas.

    The price of a barrel of oil reached $150/barrel somewhere in the vicinity of July, 2008. The Tennesse Republican Party then began selling bumper stickers reading "Your Wallet! The only place the Democrats want to drill!"The Democratic Party's favorability started falling off in the polls and suddenly the price of a barrel of oil was at $30/barrel.
    Barack Obama received more of Wall Street's money in 2008 than GOP candidate John McCain. Barack Obama's mentor and financial backer, George Soros was intimately familiar then with the workings of the futures market. You don't suppose......?
    There will be a definite correlation between Barack Obama's future poll standings and the price of a barrel of oil, with the price of oil conceivably reaching into the twentys before the next election. Anything goes to get Barry a second term. What do you think OWS, Barack Obama's TwentyFirst Century Brownshirts, his very own TwentyFirst century SA, is there for? Cake Decoration?

    Nevertheless, Democrats were blaming Bush for the increase in gas prices during his administration. You're just admitting they are a gang of lying scumbag propagandists.
