Can we all agree that CNN is in the back pocket of Obama.

The number 1 concern of all Americans in February 2012 is the high price of gas.

OOPS! CNN ignores it completely!


Luckily, Nancy Pelosi blames the President of the United States for the high prices

of gas in America. Wait a minute.....she is talking about President George W. Bush.


Thank you Nancy for showing us the clear definition of hypocrisy.

I think what the OP's saying is that her reasons for blaming the REPUBLICAN President in 2007 ought to apply to the DEMOCRAT President in 2012.

Yes. I'm demonstrating the hypocrisy.


With Obama in the White House , Pelosi is blaming the speculators.

Apparently, Obama can do no wrong.

When I see him actually walking on water....nawwwww....that won't happen....

But, apparently, based on the BS that flows out of Princess Pelosi's pie hole...he's been turning all her water into whine

It appears that Obama has 2 Achilles heels.

- The High Price of Gas & the High Unemployment Rate -

Obama should have given the green light on the Keystone Pipeline.

Well, when I am losing an argument and have nowhere but lies and outright fabrication left to defend MY position, I'll just call Pelosi or Reid. They're so good as making up their own set of facts from the thin air around us that they surely have a way out of anything imaginable by now.

With this kind of elementary school logic as their basis, there is absolutely nothing they can't explain way or blame away on others. Any parent knows how this works from spending years of dealing with it. It's as pathetic and sad to see from adults as I'd have imagined it would be.

Time for Adult supervision in Washington. The Children and old age adolescents have had it entirely too long and we have almost nothing left to work with.

Guys and Gals. Since 9/11 our price of gas has skyrocket. Just a decade ago I was enjoying .87 cent a gallon. We have also since that time witnessed the government pump trillions into the financial system.

Gas isn't going up. Our currency is going down. Don't let the bankers play switcheroo on you. Don't let the politicians get blamed for not implementing some program. Their job is to lie to the American people, point a finger at some problem, then get money to give to one of their buddies to fix the problem

The YouTube video takes away 100% of her credibility on high gas prices.

I wonder how long it will take Obama to change his mind about the Keystone Pipeline?

ABC, NBC & CBS are having a difficult time ignoring the obvious!
They have to

report on the high prices of gas all over America.

Wasn't Obamas Cap & Tax suppose to give us high gas prices???

Go to San Diego, CA and tell them "Gas isn't going up."

Yesterday, they were actually throwing cans of soda at the guy trying to put larger numbers

on the sign people see as they drive by!
-------
Yes, i know about the QE1 & QE2 but the people of San Diego are losing it!

OP, are you saying that you don't believe her "independant reports?"





“Independent reports confirm that speculators are driving up the cost of oil, hurting consumers and potentially damaging the economic recovery. Wall Street profiteering, not oil shortages, is the cause of the price spike. In fact, U.S. oil production is at its highest level since 2003, and millions of acres have been cleared for additional development.

Looks like Pelosi is on board with the beliefs with the OWS movement! She's one of the 99%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

High gas prices : Bernanke printing lots of money + banks speculation with all the free money they are getting from Ben.

Not to mention all the BS NATO is pulling in the middle-east.

So It's the FED/ECB's fault, along with NATO's fault.

For many reasons.

- It's going to happen anyway. Why delay the inevitable? When you build a pipeline it
creates jobs. I realize this is a difficult concept for the liberals.

- More oil for the USA.

-Obamas algae plan has turned into a joke of the day in Washington DC.

In that video, Pelosi is blaming the Bush administration for their inaction to bring about a real solution to the energy crises. She argues that all this effort giving oil corporations incentives and subsidies has done nothing to solve the high prices of fuel and that there needs to be a real Federal movement to invest towards alternative energies.

Eurisko, do you think the Obama administration holds a relatively similar energy policy to the Bush administration? Because this will answer your question as to whether Pelosi is being hypocritical of her position today.

What makes you think the keystone pipeline had anything to do with American energy independence? Ask yourself this simple question, why, would they need to build this pipeline right down to Texas in the Mexican gulf, right next to the ports, if keystone was supposedly meant to provide energy to the United States? Answer is, it wasn't. The keystone pipeline was to provide an avenue for Canadian producers to export to the east vai the Mexican gulf:

The best we could have hoped for the keystone pipeline was jobs, but even at that, it's questionable just howmany domestic jobs would have been provided.

Think with me.

We would rather get our oil from our friend Canada then the volatile middle east.

Even the diehard democrats admitted the Keystone Pipeline would create 20,000 jobs.



Democrat Bob Beckel says it was a terrible mistake to kill the Keystone Pipeline.

Pelosi is blaming the speculators for the high price of gas.

In her mind Obama can do no wrong.


This sounds like a Saturday Night Live skit!

We're not merely talking about our Canadian friend here, we're talking about private Canadian producers who have interests and clients beyond North American soil. What evidence do you that the keystone pipeline was to provide to the U.S and only the U.S? So they built a pipeline all the way down the Mexican gulf to provide us with our energy needs right? Surely you're not this naive Eurisko.


Even the diehard democrats admitted the Keystone Pipeline would create 20,000 jobs.


Is there any facts behind this claim?


Transcanada (TRP), the energy giant bidding to build the pipeline, projects the undertaking would create 20,000 jobs in the U.S., including 13,000 positions in construction and 7,000 in manufacturing.


That figure, based on a report by a consulting firm hired by Transcanada to assess the project's economic impact, has been widely cited by Keystone backers on Capitol Hill. Other estimates advanced by supporters of the pipeline have been even more optimistic, with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce claiming it could create 250,000 permanent U.S. jobs.

Obama denies Keystone XL permit
Official: White House to nix US-Canada pipeline
Transcanada: New route for pipeline nearly done


But subsequent analysis suggests that Keystone's job-creating potential is more modest. The U.S. State Department calculated last year that the underground pipeline would add 5,000 to 6,000 U.S. jobs. One independent review of Keystone puts that number even lower, with the Cornell University Global Labor Institute finding that the pipeline would add only 500 to 1,400 temporary construction jobs.

But of course you'd believe Transcanada right? Surely they wouldn't lie to the American puplic for business purposes?
