    Way to go Mr. President, looks like your energy policies are really working

    I know you told us early in your term that rising gas prices are good for the economy and good for the environment, and going from an average of $1.83 per gallon (when you took office) to the current $4.00 per gallon is proof of how well your policies are working, but probably the best example is the state of California where there is a democrat administration and legislature running things. The people of California are now getting a full dose of how well things go when they are being ruled by democrats at both the Federal and state level. Way to go Mr. President $5 to $6 gas and long lines at the pump because of supply shortages is just what the doctor ordered. Maybe if we are lucky, and you get a second term, the rest of the country will get to enjoy the same things that our comrades in California are currently enjoying.

    • Maybe if we give a trillion dollars to the oil companies for drilling prices will come down.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • I thought you guys wanted a hands off approach by government. You know, let the market place set prices. Get the government off our backs. Capitalism will save the day.
      Now it sounds like you want price controls.
      Which way is it?

      • It's supply and demand. The media refuses to draw the connection between 40 million people (illegals), getting driving permits, causing fuel prices to soar. Governor Moonbeam almost overnight, allowed all these low mpg, energy sucking lowriders on the street. Economics isn't rocket science. If you want to get California back in black, vote for Mitt. He's the NEW Reagan. Drill for Oil, and send illegals packing, and watch the jobs come back.

        Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • California has a problem with gasoline supplies due to long-term government regulation in that state. Don't try to blame the free market, dork. California doesn't use the free market.

    • The oil companies want "Controlled Scarcity" as it's good for profits. The Kenyan supports it fully. They tried to close a refinery in Bakersfield, CA. a few years back even though the oil field there was still productive. The state legislature made them put it up for sale. It's still operating. But, there has not been a new refinery in Calif. in a good many years and you see what happens with any breakdown of the existing ones. The eco-freaks have blocked any new refineries and most well drilling. They should all move to the Matto Grosso and live off carrion and insects so they don't offend Mother Gaia.

        The bigger question is how did he know what the questions from the media were going to be so he could have his answers appear on the teleprompter? Oh, never mind, I just answered my own question; of course he knew because he hands out the questions to the MSM before hand. Silly me.

      • No bumbles except those flying around in your brain from faux hoax news and those left on romney's campaign trail.. I'm voting for Obama, he's done a great job. Never seen any President so on top of issues and logical in problem solving. He's amazing as President. And I thank him for being the Commander who was in charge of taking down OBL and many many other key terrorists.Thank you Mr. President.

      • “If any other of our presidents had…blah, blah, blah …Every statement and action in this email is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama. Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.” – fake ricky

        And if you read another Tea Party email of lies and lame nonsense, posted from a fool who spends all day with copycat aliases, would you feel sorry for him knowing that he is a pitiful character, or just ridicule him as his own family does? Some life! How pathetic.

        “Q: Did Obama double the debt and commit every "bumble" he's accused of in a critical chain e-mail?

        A: No. The debt hasn't doubled, and of the 24 claims only six are true. We found another seven to be partly true, and the rest to be false, misleading or exaggerated.

        This harshly critical e-mail has been circulating since at least the summer of 2009 and we've been asked about it more than 50 times. The version readers have sent to us contains 24 claims that it says are all true: "Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable." Not quite. We found that four of the claims are simply false. Others had some basis in fact but were twisted to the point of giving the reader a false impression, hence we judged them to be misleading or exaggerated. Only six of the claims were true. Another seven were partly true, having some accuracy to the claim but lacking context or containing other errors.

        We'll take each of the claims in order:”
