Had “Marxist” Obama allowed America to collapse like it did in 1929 (which was good old uninhibited capitalism) then oil prices may well have halved since Obama took office.

We won't have steady oil prices until we get the speculators out. They only profit if the price changes are large. Doesn't matter which direction. We need to limit commodity trading to those who actually take delivery of the underlying commodity.

Whenever oil prices went up under Bush, lefties were always quick to point out how Bush was taking care of his oil buddies.
On January 19th oil was trading at $34.78 on Friday it closed at $68.44. So in less than 5 months in office oil has DOUBLED under Obama. Where is the outrage? Where is the MSM reporting on this?
