    As happy as I am at the outcome, I think there was room for improvement. I'll give Romney a B. Obama, a D. If he had been on his game ie better versed on his lies and rhetoric, this wouldn't have been so clear cut. My wife watched the debates with me, and though she clearly doesn't like the typical Repub stance on abortion and gay marriage, even she was finding lies and contradictions coming from Obama. I think it's true, if the Repubs left those 2 topics alone, they'd have a lot more people like my wife supporting them.

    Camelotkid,
    Pull your head out of the sand and look at the real BHO.
    Having no foreign policies AND hindering domestic drilling AND blocking the Keystone pipeline all have a negative affect on gas pricing.
    Then factor in the Stazi like EPA AND crushing debt due to his "drug addict" like spending AND you have the dollar in a free fall on the world market once again negatively affecting oil prices.

    Yeah, and it's killing America. Either way we are losing.

    The Dems need to face the facts, Obama has a very negative record as president with very few flattering talking points.
    Without using demagoguery the Democrats can only use their tried and failed platform of fear and blame.
    Lets hope that Mitt doesn't back off or start using Biden's speech writers.

    Obama looked like a frightened child last night.

    When he started talking about his grandmother he looked like he was wishing he was home with his dear grammy...anywhere but on that stage.

    Not something I don't like, just something factually incorrect. Just waiting for you to post your "fact checker" data now.

    Actually the President can influence pricing by
    - prohibiting or allowing drilling
    - prohibit or allowing new refinery construction
    - -- Hint: EPA heavily involved in that decision
    - determining if/when to release strategic reserves
    - setting EPA mpg guidelines
    - prohibit or allowing new pipelines
    - middle-east foreign policies
    - economic policies that are killing the dollar
    - -- Hint: weak dollar = more expensive imports
    - killing the coal industry (an alternate fuel source)

    If you don't realize these basic facts, then you're not even worth the time and effort it takes to respond to your drivel.

    So if gas companys know people are dependent on gas to go places, and they know that people will still buy gas at the current price, even if they increased supply what incentive would they have to then lower the price? seems like even with increased production of oil the only thing that would happen is higher profits for oil companies not relief for people who can't afford gas.

    I loved the “I raised 5 boys so I know all about someone telling me a lie over and over to try and make me believe it” line.

    so this explains why gas was $5 per gallon a few months before the election in 2008? GWB obviously wanted to make sure that mcain did not get elected, makes since. :whistling:

    Your explanation sound like Tim Robbins likeness in the cartoon movie "Team America". So basically it comes down to the corporations acting all corporationy.:whistling:

    Since Obama couldn't defend his presidential record why don't you give it a try. You and I both know you are much smarter than him. (I'm serious about this statement)

    And then there was when he was talking about the $90 Billion Obama gave to green energy companies, and made a point to mention that HALF of them contributed to Obama's campaign. :rofl:

    And with Obama blathering on and on about teachers and education, Romney came back with, "90 billion dollars could have hired 2 million teachers." That was like a metaphorical dagger thrust between the ribs. :supergrin:

    I think that was the best part when Obama did that liberal spin on demonizing "big oil" profits and substidies and Romney countered showing how much money was just given to green energy companies that FAILED.

    You must be an obamaphile. Gas was never $5.00 a gallon. Just before the elections, it was a bit over $2.00/gal.
