    • @1098r Exactly. Some people act like no former president has ever had to fix the problems of their predecessor. Look at the disaster Martin Van Buren inherited after Jackson destroyed the Bank of the US.

    • @1098r Every year that we don't see improvement, the more the WH says 'The recession was worser than we thought' and '8 years of Bush really dug us in deep. Did you really think that Obama was going to turn things around in his first term like he said he going to?' So the longer the recovery is, the more Bush fucked up and people eat this up.

      My point about Van Buren was that he didn't complain. He knew what type of economic mess he was getting into and lead the country the best he could.

  • "Blame Bush" has been the democrat mantra for years. Obama gets away with things Bush would have been shredded for.

    Never mind that Clinton, one of their own, is responsible, in large part, for the mortgage bust.

    The Obama administration is treating green energy like it's a current reality. The fact of the matter is that it's a developing field. Until something viable is discovered, we can't drive to work in vehicles powered by unicorn farts.

  • It's pretty indefensible. You can't deny the facts that gas is now at $6.00 a gallon in Florida and $5.00 a gallon in California. But as Obama says, energy prices must "necessarily skyrocket" so he can slam his green energy down our throats.

      5.89 a gallon regular at 8788 Vineland Ave near Apopka-Vineland Rd. in Lake Buena Vista. (Was over $6.00 two days ago) http://www.floridastategasprices.com/

      So you quote the absolute highest price possible as if it's representative , and from a city, and not a state which was what you were talking about Now who's being dishonest here.

      Look at the station in Florida, look at the prices around it at other stations. It's either a mistake or not typical so you shouldn't be excited.

    • @toiletsnake - The highest price is still relevant. It is still there and proves the point I was trying to make that prices are skyrocketing. When prices go well above $4.00 a gallon for everyone, I won't tell you I told you so. Not sure what point you're trying to make. Is your point that gas prices aren't rising?

  • OK republicans. No more talk about abortion, parental planning, churches and women. Lets get it together!!! I want to see low gas prices, more jobs in the USA, 'Made in USA' labels and a better way of life. Don't blame Obama (Obama wasn't allowed to blame Bush). It is all on you to fix this with your own merit.

    Do that, and you win all of America's support.

      I am saying that the Republicans say that Obama can't blame bush. They always do, the party of "no".

      All bullshit set aside too! We need JOBS in the USA first. No more outsourcing. NO MORE. I remember as a kid almost everything was made in the USA, and then some foreign products. It was all good.

      Taxes were high, and taxes were low, but everyone had a job, who wanted a job.

  • Gas prices in the USA are the highest they have ever been in history for this time of year and are projected to go way higher as summer approaches, mainly because of Obama's failed "Green Policies" which have given billions of tax payer dollars to failed companies like "Solydra", etc. and his resentment of the "fossil fuel" industry.

  • Just an observation, but calling people "libtards" and things similar to that, make you look ridiculous. Instead of name calling, perhaps use intellect to get your point across, it won't give them fuel to fire back, regardless if their attacks are ridiculous. Look smarter and more intellectual, you'll find people more willing to listen.

    • @Remi Who are you directing that comment to? I surely didn't call anyone libtards. You have a problem with the accurate description of "Progressive Partisan Ideologues" I was calling out to? And since you're questioning my intellect, may I suggest you chime in with your opinion of my perceived hypocrisy and we'll have an honest debate.

    • @toiletsnake If you can't see the hypocrisy you're blind. The Democrats and the Obama Administration have been trying to assert that the spike in gas prices is not really affected by the President's actions. They most certainly are as they were to the same extent with Bush! He is too busy giving green companies subsidies and the damn thing hurts the most, knowing we have been wasting all this algae for so long..Pfft

      Oh yes, those green companies are the problem. Not the executives, who seem to be out of control in the private sector in general and not limited to green companies.

      I believe presidents, with exception to opening up strategic reserves and begging to the Saudis and or OPEC can't really do too much to effect the price of oil in the world market.

With regards to what the Presidents can and can't do, what you believe and what is factual are miles apart. Since Obama, federal land, the area where the he has control, production in the Gulf of Mexico is down 30 percent. Lease sales in Rocky Mountains on federal lands are down 70 percent. He directly put 85 percent of the outer continent More..

      You don't get it. It is a global market. We produce more, OPEC produces less, the prices stays the same, or goes higher depending on the cut.

      We can't drill our way out of this. Thinking that is so adorable!

    • @toiletsnake You don't get it. I've been hearing for decades how drilling and opening up areas would take too long to make a differnce. BS, if Obama did that markets would react and futures and speculators would see production increases and the price would fall. You keep telling yourself that though, regardless of the facts I could throw at you but I see would be a waste of time.. Oh, Besides the fact that it would create jobs and not sending more money overseas..
