She would get the ball rolling on drilling in the gulf instead of the ridiculous moratorium Barry put on to appease his base while giving tax dollars to Brazil to drill in the gulf.


WRONG.

30-40 percent of oil costs right now are based on wall street speculation...and that's coming from the EXXON MOBIL CEO. THAT HAS NOTHING TO DOW WITH CURRENT SUPPLY OR DEMAND. It's all speculative based on what the supply/demand "might" be in the future. It's a rigged game.

Supply is fine right now. Drilling MORE in the gulf will not do much to lower prices...it might make speculators drop the price of oil for a day or 2...but it would be shortlived.

You don't think it will make us less dependent on foreign oil?


The United States oil giant Chevron announced last week that it has discovered an enormous treasure that dates back to the Eocene period. The amount of oil and natural gas discovered may be as much as 15 billion barrels. If that estimate is correct, then US oil reserves have increased by 50 percent overnight.


Many analysts were delighted. The value of Chevron's shares increased –- and the price of oil fell. "That's great news for the corporation, for industry and for the nation," a banker at the Oppenheimer & Co. investment firm cheered, calling the discovery a "jackpot."


But there's another reason why this discovery is truly special: The oil reserve, called Jack 2, was found about 400 kilometers (250 miles) southwest of New Orleans. It lies one level below all the other oil reserves that are currently being tapped in the Gulf of Mexico

So now tell me again why Barry gave tax dollars to Petrobas ?

Nope. End wall street speculation on oil futures and prices drop up to 40 percent. Btw...for anyone who does not know...CLINTON is responsible for this. This wasn't allowed before 1990. (can't remember the exact year htis was passed)

I don't know where you are getting your information from...it sounds like Fox News or Conservative radio....I'd quit. And no, i'm not telling you to start watching MSNBC in it's place.

Newt can't win the conservative base. Did you see what they did to him after he called Ryan's plan radical...which it absolutely is?

That bill is complete and total garbage...and it's more than medicare that they are messing with in that bill. More tax cuts for billionaires and corporations...many of whom don't employ many Americans and are already making record profits.

I don't like "free tradin'" Newt Gingrich...but he was right in what he said and he was destroyed for it by the extremists in his own party. Fox News turned on him in a second based on that. He was trying to cater to Independents and the elderly. He was doing the right thing (if he wanted a chance to win the Presidency).

Right now the only guy who I see that can win the Republican nomination is Romney...who is the front runner....but he has the problem of being a Mormom and Romneycare....which will be hard to win his base over.

BTW...he has not announced whether he supports or doesn't support that bill. If he's smart, he WON'T support it...but either way...I can't see anyone beating Obama in 2012.

There is a reason why their best candidate, IMO...HUCKABEE...dropped out....no one wants to run on cutting help on the middle class and the poor. How can you even defend that while at the same time supporting more tax cuts for billionaires and corporations?

YOU CAN'T!

WOULD YOU WANT TO BE THAT GUY?

I wouldn't

Not arguing that. I don't understand why it is soooo difficult for you to understand that just because somebody feels Palin is nowhere near qualified to be the president, doesn't by default mean that they are on the Obama wagon. BOTH PARTIES are the same and have f-ed this country up six ways from Sunday. Those of you who keep this BS going, with the liberal this, conservative that garbage, are braindead and I'd even go as far as saying unwittingly traitors to your country.


The one party scam works because American voters have been conditioned to respond to style rather than substantive policy issues, to the acceptance of simplistic diagnoses of complex issues rather than detailed and thoughtful analyses, and to a preference for negative political advertisements rather than rational discussions of meaningful issues. Soaring campaign rhetoric and bold promises to the contrary, political observers have noted the similarities in McCain's and Obama's policy positions, and their differences can only be discussed as matters of degree or semantics. It is indeed all sound and fury signifying nothing.

Im not the one driving our deficit to all time highs! Hate to beat a dead horse, but that is why we havent recovered yet. Neither are ideal. However, who has more business and administrative experience. There is not competition, Palin. Who is the greatest at reading off telaprompters, Obama, no competition. Who has had to make tough decisions for other people? Palin Who has had to help organize communities? Obama

Who should be president? He will never run again, but I like Steve Forbes. That man breathes success.

Ah Clinton is responsible for "this". Please tell me what "this" is?

If you are knocking Fox News or conservative radio it can only be because you support Barry giving tax money to foreign oil companies while interrupting our own oil drilling.

www.sodahead.com...

www.amorian.org...

6. He has given our public money to a foreign state to finance their state-run oil company while refusing to allow us to develop our own oil resources.

Obama financed a Brazilian oil company using public tax money to search for foreign oil in Brazil. The company, Brazil-owned Petrobras, was a wealthy state run company, perfectly capable of doing the search itself. This was effectively a gift of US tax money to the investors in the company and its owner. At the same time we have plenty of oil in the US to search for and produce, especially in Alaska, and yet Obama denies us the right to develop our own oil resources.[6][7]



www.examiner.com...

Obama to Brazil: we will buy your oil after giving you $2 billion to drill it



President Obama in a speech down in Brazil on March 19th told local businessmen in the nation state that the US is looking forward to being their best customer in buying oil from their offshore drilling. This policy to purchase more foreign oil comes after we invested over $2 Billion with Brazil's state-owned oil company, Petrobras, to finance exploration of the huge offshore discovery in Brazil's Tupi oil field in the Santos Basin near Rio de Janeiro.



In this new policy, President Obama is promoting an offshore drilling partnership with Brazil, while at the same time placing moratoriums against US companies drilling in our own waters. This means jobs will be created in Brazil, and many American workers in the oil industry will move into the ranks of the unemployed.
Secondly, the US in 2007 alone imported over 3.66 billion barrels of oil, which at todays price of $103.74 per barrel, means a cost of nearly $380 Billion dollars exported out of the economy to foreign countries. With our trade deficit running over half a trillion dollars each year, this will only add to the cost of goods bought by US consumers in the future.
In 2009 when President Obama loaned $2 Billion dollars to the Brazilian nation oil company, there was alot of outrage by the American people over our spending taxpayer funds to develop infrastructure and production in a foreign country, while at the same time not addressing our own energy needs. With Obama's trip to Brazil, and the speech given over the weekend, we now know the full extent of why the money was lent to Brazil, and in essense, why we gave them cash so in the end we could buy their goods.
With the President's speech in Brazil, and the revealing of a new energy policy that contricts his moratorium on the dangers of offshore drilling, the American people and our economy will in the future become much more dependent on foreign oil, and lose out on jobs and economic production through the drilling and sale of our own resources.

Thanks Prez Obama

and no Fox news, no cons talk radio here

It looks like you get your news from Factcheck(read Annenberg-ayers) and Media Matters. They have both parroted the same talking points on this as you.

Ok I will use Pajamas Media and you can whine and cry all you want
pajamasmedia.com...

High gasoline prices are not a cause of the current economic recession, they are an avoidable and unnecessary symptom of liberal environmental and economic policies. When President Barack Obama took office the price of gasoline was $1.83 per gallon. Today it’s over $4.00. Understanding why that is so will give you insight into the patient game plan of the fossil-fuel-hating, combustion-engine-despising, environmentally obsessed left.
The high price of gas is not simply a function of the cost of crude oil. There are many causes for the $4.00 we are currently paying for a gallon of gasoline. Of that $4.00, taxes account for 52 cents, distribution and marketing about 32 cents, refining 56 cents, and the cost of crude oil $2.60. By the mid-20th century, oil was surpassed only by income taxes as the largest generator of revenue for the U.S. government.
Clearly, the biggest portion of the $4.00 you pay goes to the crude oil suppliers. This is where supply and demand takes over. The price of crude oil is determined by the world’s oil-exporting nations, particularly the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). OPEC is responsible for over 40% of the world’s crude production. In 2001, when OPEC reduced its production by 1 million barrels a day, gas prices in the U.S. skyrocketed to $1.71 per gallon. When it increased its production in 2005, gas prices dropped.
The United States is actually the third-largest producer of crude oil in the world, but we still import nearly 40% of our crude oil demand, mainly from Canada, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, and Venezuela. But here is where life becomes quite simple. The more crude oil we produce domestically, the less taxes we heap on a gallon of gasoline, the fewer hurdles and blends we require of domestic manufacturers, the less we pay for gasoline. U.S. domestic oil production peaked way back in 1970, and by 2005, imports were twice that of domestically produced crude oil.
Increasing domestic exploration, drilling, and production is the simple solution to what we are paying at the pump. Yet our president has repeatedly misled us by alleging that there is no “silver bullet” for lowering gas prices. What the Obama administration and his liberal machine have been doing is just the opposite — and it is beginning to look intentional.
President Obama follows the liberal playbook about energy independence — code for wind and solar energy which won’t fuel our automobiles, jets, ships, or the war machines he has sent into Libya. He misleads the American people about ethanol leading to energy independence. It can’t and won’t. Ethanol is not economically competitive. Corn ethanol costs an average of $2.53 to produce – several times the 56 cents it costs to produce a gallon of gasoline. Instead, ethanol simply raises the price of gasoline we pay at the pump.

I don't remember much about him, but I believe we all need to get behind a non-establishment candidate. The Tea Party was a good try, before the Republicans hijacked and marginalized it.

Palin's resume is completely irrelevant, as was Obama's. They are mouthpieces, bought and paid for by campaign contributions through special interest groups, whom they are beholden to legislate on behalf of. They bring nothing to the table, nor are they supposed to.

Are you saying he is a liberal socialist progressive????????????? His company made BILLIONS the last 3 months.

LOOK IT UP IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME.

He said it in front of Congress last week.

PROVE ME WRONG

What about Palin getting Alaskans residents check from oil companies? IS THAT A LIE LIBERAL LIE TOO???

Isn't that Socialism???

And you know what? It sounds to me like you are promoting the concept of more govt regulations. It's people like you who make the Republican party look more left than right.

Obama is working very hard to nationalize the oil industry like all his fellow travelers in Brazil and Venezuela

and if you don't think that's true, heres Matthews calling for it
newsbusters.org...


Last week an agitated Chris Matthews tried to hold Dick Cheney accountable for the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and this week Matthews is demanding action from President Obama, as the Hardball host pushed the President to nationalize the oil industry to solve the problem. On Monday's Hardball a visibly angry Matthews demanded Obama go after BP: "Why doesn't the President go in there, nationalize an industry and get the job done for the people?" and pointed out that in China they would have a much harsher response to BP: "They execute people for this. Major industrial leaders that commit crimes like this."


looks like Matthews is a closet socialist too

Matthews even took aim at the entire capitalist system, as over video of the oil slick, he sarcastically mocked: "Everybody says 'Capitalism is great. Unbridled free enterprise is great.' Look at it! This is great, isn't it?!"


What better way to destroy capitalism than to say it's all because of Capitalists speculating on oil while deliberately reducing our own oil production (the supply part of supply and demand) and going looky looky Hugu Chavez is lowering his cost of oil and giving it away.

Talk about moronic socialist class warfare

Doesn’t make her a pro, but you’re missing her point. Her state is different. Tell me if I’m wrong but it’s the only state that boarders two countries. With that said, you know she has dealt with those countries on several levels, including trade, business, social and economic interactions over the years. Look at Arizona, you know they deal with Mexico on a day to day business.

Again, this by no means makes her an expert. But you have to take in consideration canidates fundemental ideas. The genuine ideas that won’t change, something they feel strong about, and hold dearly due to their moral fiber. These are the ones we need to trust to make the right decisions for us. Again, not saying I vote Palin 2012, but some of her attributes are the ones we need in the next president.

Look, I'm not trying to say speculation has nothing to do with it. But how can you separate the impact of supply from the equation here? Where were all these controlling speculators in the 70s when a gallon cost 50 cents. But remember Carter and the long gas lines? Was that speculation?

I do believe you that the big oil producers want as much as they can get for their product. Only in the Socialist world would that be any different. Think Chavez here.

Well, it's gotta start/stop somewhere, right? I'm done voting for establishment candidates from either party. To me there is no lesser of evils between them, they're the same. Obama changed nothing, he took Bush's baton and ran with it. Ron Paul has alot of good ideas and intentions, along with a few unrealistic ones. The way I see it, is reality will balance out the unrealistic ideas, but even just a few of his policies implemented would go much further to bring this country back to life than anything the establishment candidates would ever be permitted to do. Sadly, Kennedy knows better than most what happens when a president steps out of line...

You know, I think you have made the single best argument for the Intl Capitalist/Communist conspiracy. On the Capitalist side we have the Big Oil execs saying it's all the speculators fault and they have to pass on costs to (greedy) consumers who love their big SUVS, and on the Communists side we have those who espouse Big Govt saying iit's time to Nationalize the Oil industry and control costs through legislation.
A dream made in heaven? Not for the (greedy) consumer (who drives a big SUV).Oh and the environmentalists make out like a bandit. They probably get grants and funding to study ways to stick it to the (greedy) consumers who ruin Mother Earth with their greedy selfish capitalist ways.
Note the sarcasm here

abc news says this

It is all part of an effort by Democrats to push a new bill that would scrap tax breaks for the five companies, the biggest and most profitable ones in the country. Democrats want to cut about $2 billion per year in tax subsidies for the companies and use the savings to pay down the nation's soaring federal deficit.
.

Somehow coming out of Democrat's mouths, a tax break somehow sounds like someone else is paying for something.
