Is he an outright socialist or delusional?

    I hate to say it, but he got baited into that.

    People here have been clamoring (well, maybe not clamoring) that the President should at least SAY something about this and possibly figure out things to do.

    WE KNOW HE WON'T BE DRILLING FOR MORE OIL. Get that out of your heads. It's like telling the Chief of Police to take care of crime, knowing that he'll just beat up people who report crimes. ?????

    Obama did the only thing he can do, given who he is and where this "crisis" has put him - call on Congress to pass anti-profit-making laws.

    And they won't.

    The good news is: This can only really hurt him come fall. So it won't happen AND he'll take a shellacking for it. What problem? :)

    Benito Obama... naw, just doesn't have a catchy ring to it.

    You guys haven't seen anything yet. If he's re-elected, expect to see pure insanity from the White House. So far we've only seen pure affirmative action stupidity. But insanity is coming.

    And if he's not re-elected, then expect the Insane One to attempt to force anti-gun laws, etc, during his last months in office, not to mention granting paroles and pardons that would make Ray Blanton envious.

    Speculation and manipulation in the markets are NOT THE SAME THING. :yawn:

    Manipulation is already against the law - UNLESS you are the Federal Reserve. :rofl:

    Barrack is not a socialist, he is a communist. Based on his appointments, nominations, and an endorsement by the communist party I would say he is a communist.

    No one forced Obama into making stupid decisions regarding our energy policy. Even when he is shown the error of his ways, he just plods forward in the same direction. He could easily concede he made mistakes pertaining to our oil and gas markets but he will not humble himself to do so. Even Bill Clinton changed course but not Barack Obama.

    Wow, this is really an act of desperation. This is really the epitome of "throwing money at a problem" without any meaningful idea on what to do.
