High compliments, Mr.L, but I'm afraid my candidacy would be derailed by things I've done, both in public and behind closed doors.

Hiding under a desk still sounds pretty good, though.

I'm glad to see someone who can think clearly and free of dogma. Too many people who voted for Pres. Obama are still shouting from the rooftops that he is doing a wonderful job. And you're right, this is a global crisis. He has time to turn things around, but not much. I really think we are at a turning point in our history. Globally and nationally speaking. Whoever follows him is going to have a huge mess to clean up. It may take years to correct the damage done, not only in his term as president but for the last 8-10 years total. Change, true change, is needed. And the change that must take place will not sit well with the current population but is a must to ensure the future of our country and future generations.

My dear LadyX, you rock. How about you run for President and I'll be your VP, or your hidden under the desk intern. Either one will suit me fine.


Hey... I've already got that job spoken for. The "under the desk" job, that is.

Presidential Cunnilinguist. That's me!

"The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic." Obama Senator in 2008

I love this one for the simple fact it contains and how things are today, just four years later.

According to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline was $1.84 on the day Obama took the oath of office.

I'd like for you to explain what the President of the United States has to do with the market price for gasoline. I haven't learned anything yet today, so maybe this will take care of that.

Which of those was the President that pushed for and started the Iraq War? I must have missed the Bush quote in there somewhere.

Let's not forget we were losing jobs at a rate of 600,000-800,000 per month at the time as well. I'm sure we all want to go back to those good ol' days of recession-crashed gas prices.

Exxon have to do it on their own? ' LadyX

Exxon is investing Billions in wind and solar. They see the profit to be made off of green energy. Profit is a good thing.

Could you rephrase that to where it makes sense?

I asked what causal relationship you can point out between Obama and the market cost of gasoline.


btw, you should use the quote function. It's really easy, and will make more sense when we respond to each others' posts.

I don't believe you think that, Buc. 588-rolleyes

I asked about Obama and the cost of gasoline, not those other things. Of course, you don't have to answer the question, especially if you don't know what you're talking about.

The link didn't work, and...I didn't ask you about Exxon and wind power. Your thoughts on the connection between the President and the cost of gasoline, please. Otherwise, I'm sure that a new thread on wind power would be interesting.

IF you don't like my answer fine, gasoline price was down prior to him taking Office, he campaigned in part on fixing the problem of high gas prices, even went so far as to tell US some sob stories of how a person he met could not afford the high prices of gasoline to drive to job interviews or the teacher at a Native American school that could not afford to drive to go teach,,,, the heart strings being pulled were, in my mind to tell US that he will do something to assure economical gasoline during his term.

Surely you're not uniquely appalled by empty campaign rhetoric, are you? All candidates say and repeat total crap to get elected. Of course Obama's no exception.

But at least we can agree that Obama has no tangible connection to the cost of gasoline. So why, then, would you quote the costs of gas then and now, as if we can attribute that to the sitting president and his policies?

Looks like you'll be the one learning something today, not me.

68-70 percent of the cost of gasoline is driven by the cost of crude oil. The cost of crude oil, measured by the barrel, is determined in the international marketplace. Exxon refines approximately 3% of the world's oil. They don't decide the cost of oil, and you might be surprised to learn that Obama's not a part of that discussion, either.

Except it didn't. Band-aid measure at best. You don't believe everything you're told, do you? And likewise, you wouldn't expect others to either, right? The price of gasoline isn't a mysterious process. Politicians make all sorts of claims and promises that are beyond their reach. In addition to legalized abortion, you might also want to get used to this.
