Sorry, I wish I had the time to respond to all your comments, but I can only afford time for a couple.
When Obama took office gas was 1.75 Now it's 3.71
If you are going to talk about the price of gas you need to adjust for inflation. You did not adjust for inflation. Also, what kind of control do you
think a US president has on the price of oil? From what I understand the president can only have a drastic impact on the price of oil when he gets us
into conflicts with oil producing nations. Have you even seen Mitt Romney's plans for our military or foreign policy? Our military will be our
foreign policy! Based on what Mitt Romney has said, I think its a safe bet he and his party will eagerly get us into another war in the middle east.
For them, its all about the bottom line. They represent big business. And war is big business.
Drilling permits under Clinton rose 58%. Under Bush up 116%. Under Obama DOWN 36%
Americas credit rating downgraded for the FIRST TIME IN HISTORY. Lets not forget about that.
Losing half a million dollars on Solyndra. Losing how much else on failing 'green energy' companies?
We get about HALF of our energy from coal. Not only are we closing plants down but Obama has said that if someone wants to open a new one they will
"probably go bankrupt" because of his policies
We are entirely reliant on oil. Oil is a finite resource. The best thing we could ever do is find a way to overcome this dependency. We certainly have
the technology to do so. Obama has tried. Why fault him for trying?
Bypassing congress! This is NOT a dictatorship!
No it is not. And Obama is not a dictator for using Executive Orders. In fact, it is quite American of him. Especially when faced with an
obstructionist congress. Still, according to www.archives.gov...
Obama has used far less EO's than both W Bush
or Reagan and many other presidents.
What does Obama do when he doesn't get what he wants?(regardless of having democratic control of both house and senate for his first 2 years)
The Dream act is one thing. He wants the hispanic vote... so reform immigration even though it failed.
The Dream Act passed both the House and the Senate, but a Republican minority filibustered the bill. And since then we've had an obstructionist
The Fast and Furious debacle! American citizens wants to know what happened. Why we had an American murdered with a gun supplied by the
administration. To use executive power to block everything so we can't see what really happened? What's the matter Mr. President... did you have a
hand in that? Is that why you're protecting Holder?
This is a great example of how the GOP blows things way out of proportion in an effort to undermine the Democrats. Anyways, Eric Holder was found to
be innocent so I don't know why its worth even bringing this up. I can think of a couple good reasons why Obama used EO on this case. First, the GOP
likes to blow things out of proportion. Perhaps Obama knew this and he didn't want GOP agenda to screw over an innocent guy?! Perhaps another reason
has to do with confidential information. Or perhaps your are right, it was a conspiracy and Obama wanted those honest God-fearing Republicans from
discovering all his dirty little secrets. muhahaha
"... but I would rather vote for a new puppet and pray for a new direction than vote for the same puppet and know exactly where we're going.
So where exactly are we going under Obama? Do you even know who Mitt Romney is or what he believes? Have you even seen his or Paul Ryan’s voting
records? Have you heard any of the things that come out of Romney's mouth? If you want to know my opinion, I think we're heading for war war war war
war war war if we elect Romney/Ryan. I've come to this conclusion based on what Romney/Ryan say and how they vote.
