I really don't think so. I was a Obama supporter 4 years ago along with most of my friends, now none of them support him being reelected at all. I do not either.

Obama wants gas prices ( and all energy) prices to rise. He wants to force green energy programs on the American people and gain more control over existing energy companies and can only do that if they are outraged at the cost of these traditional energy sources.

I filled up yesterday and could not believe how much higher the prices are. Could you imagine if we lived up north and heated our homes with heating oil.
These last couple years have been the worst I can remember.

Boy when Bush was President and gas got real high for a few months everyone was wringing their hands and jumping through loops getting all over Bush, Obama becomes President and gas gets high and STAYS high and no one cares anymore.
Obama should be ran out of Washington for neglecting his duty, bad decisions and most importantly, failure to LEAD.

Yes, I remember the so called outrage at G.W. Bush about the gas, non existent now though. I was no Bush fan but Obama makes Bush look great.

Someone explain how any president has control over gas prices.

Anyone?

It would make you a pretty big idiot if you're blaming someone for something if you can't explain how they have any power over it.

Right after that, you can explain to us how the president controls employment numbers.

Obama has never tried to hide how he feels about traditional energy sources, that's why he has given so much money to green energy ventures that have failed one after another.
Look at how his actions or even the threat of actions have caused the coal industry to crash and that is America's largest energy source.
It is no wonder gas prices are so high with the threat of Cap & Trade and Obama's ban on drilling offshore.
Obama owns gas prices.

Yeah, he could make them go down and reap huge political benefits, but chooses not to.
Any president can just wave a magic wand and make gas prices drop. The only reason gas prices go up is because the president want them to.

Stick with that. Makes a lot of sense.

It has nothing to do with unregulated speculators using our energy supply as a casino.....Bankers and wall street assholes NEVER engage in such behavior, right?

That ban on offshore drilling has increased the unemployment too, I can vouch for that.
But the damn Brits and Chinese are still there drilling and pumping oil just off our gulf coast.
Obama puts BS above peoples livelihood and panders to his green special interest groups.

Way to stay informed, clown. You're going to have to find some other delusions to cling to.
