Why don't we hear more outrage by the Liberal Leftwing media(CNN,NBC,CBS,ABC and HNN)? When fuel prices got high when Bush was in office the media outcry was deafining. Dumbocrats were crying foul,said Bush was doing it to make his buddies rich, and the media was more than happy to cover it. Where is the outcry now? Who is Obananna helping to get rich? I say a news clip of Obananna saying if you don't like the price of fuel you need to buy an auto that gets better fuel mileage. If my car got 100 mpg gas prices are still to high. How out of touch can the President be???

The main reason for the increase in oil prices, is the "quanatative easing" of money supplies the Obama administration enacted about a year ago. "Quanatative easing" is the act of printing money to pay outstanding debts. It devalues the dollar and at some point will cause inflation. We are the victims of another failed Obama social policy, you cant give away billions without a way to recover it. You cant print money without something to back it up. Oil and gold have become the new benchmark. Oil and gold prices now determine the value of things, not the dollar. The dollar has become too devalued and unstable.
