Capitalism is based on corporations privatizing profits and socializing losses. Nice arrangement...for them.
i see it this way:
There's a republican president - bush (Presiding over the greatest economy in history until Dems took control of the house and senate and ruined it)
democratic congress (Single worse rating in the history of congress)
they get nothing solved because they're both too immature to do waht they get paid to do - lead our country together. (Again, until Dems took control, economy was fantastic, gas was reasonable, job rate was historic high)
now, "change" comes into the equation.. (Socialism is a change)
you have a DEMOCRATIC president willing to work with democratic controlled congress, you may get results you're looking for? (Work? They have done nothing so far, what is their sudden impetuous?)
you may not. (CORRECT)
But the way things currently set - nothing is happening. (Talk to your Democrat Controlled House and Senate, remember, the lowest rate in history?)
Its time for change. (Again, Socialism is change)
You can expect better results delivered from Obama, than McCain. (If better means Marxist/Socialist)
Bet on it. (Agreed)
pretty open and shut.
Gas prices. Health care. Education. Social Security. Illegal immigration. Instead of doing something about these important issues, the new Democrat Senate has resorted to politics-as-usual in Washington, DC.
Democrats voted to provide for the largest tax hike in American history, slashed $3 billion in border security funding from a bill, and even made children's health care dependent on finding 22 million new smokers.
And that's not even the half of it. Time and again, the do-nothing Democrat Congress has failed us in 2007. Americans deserve better.
We cannot allow 2008 to be yet another year of Democrats failing the American people. We must take action now.
Tell the Democrats: it's time to stop the political games and start getting to work for the American people.

First, there's the Bush Economy Speech on Tuesday in which Bush spoke of how there's an "upside" to this recession.
As you might guess, Bush and Bernanke don't exactly see things the same way.

So you're saying that Bush is in no way responsible for the sharp increase in gas prices BEFORE democrats took over congress?.....
I believe that was the platform the democrats were running on
"lowering gas prices"
gas prices were already on the rise when they cam into power
i'll agree with you on this:
They've done nothing to stop it
but they're not the ones responsible for its inception.
