When gas prices went up to $4.00 under President Bush he issued an excutive order extending leases, and removing regulations on refineries. This brought the price of gas down to $1.87 the day the Obomination was sworn in, Jan 20 1009.

that is a lie.
Read the research on price and domestic production.
Production is up under this president.
Understand that there is no shortage of leases and PODs in america that cannot be developed at this time.
The current price increase is due to the world market price, influenced by the irresponsible war threats by bonehead republicans and speculation on wall street.
There is refining capacity - there has been no change or tightening of rules on refineries under the current president
We are exporting gasoline and other refined products.
Now if you must, post your lies and insults in Illinois. Your ignorance and disrespect is not appreciated here.

You might not agree with him politically but there has been no decrease in American oil production at any time under Obama's leadership. Not even during the moratorium on drillin in the gulf. America is producing record volumes of petroleum as per the demands of the market. And no substantial environmental obstacle has slowed drilling nor raised costs one dime. The market is driven by supply and demand and all other factors are so small in comparison they are not influential in the market at all. It is 100% supply and demand. Nothing else.
You may or may not agree with Obama and you may object to "Democrat" ideology and that is fine. But supporting such collossal lies to further a radical political ideal is just unhealthy. Both mentally and physically.
There is more oil being produced under this administration by a large percentage. Fewer illegal aliens cross our borders since Obama took office. The economy just isn't that bad here in New Mexico. Anyone that wants a job can certainly get one. And there are no immediate pending crisies at all.
Just a bunch of partisan propoganda and it is getting thicker on BOTH sides. I dont know which makes me puke farther. A Democrat or a Republican. The only thing I know is that the radicals on both sides should STFU and realize that neither one has any common sense at all and is destroying this country.

The BS about the US not being able to drill oil is a huge lie. Anyone that beleievs that the pit rule or listing the dunes lizard will affect jobs or the cost of gaasoline is simply wrong. Yes, environmental rules like the pit rule cost about $20k more for a well int he development process.
This does not slow drilling or raise fuel prices one cent. One mechanical problem or a routine geological encounter can cost a lot more than the requirements of the pit rule. The paradigm that "environmentalist cost jobs and raise fuel prices" is simply false in this case. It is partisan political lies to divide the people,get votes and keep them busy fighting amongst each other.
We had better GET REAL instead of following one political partisan or the other like sheep. Neither one is offering anyhtign except more government, more rich elite, and more control over the people.

Sorry. It is a matter of fact that gas went Over $4. in July 2008, and Bush made all the right decisions to bring the price of gas down to $1.87 before he left office. Obama is clueless, and he thinks if gas goes high enough we will all buy one of those golf cart cars. We won't. Instead we will vote him out of office in November. Talk to your neighbors. Talk to the people who made that historic vote in 2008. They will not make that mistake agan.

Perhaps he will hand out to every American a tire gauge because you know you must do your part to help.
#27 Mar 23, 2012
to say you're sorry, just stop lying. Read up and tell tour neighbors the truth, too.

I don't know if this is funny or true??
This clears up a huge question,,,
The year was 1947.
Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947,
a little more than 64 years ago, numerous witnesses claim that
an Unidentified Flying Object,(UFO), with five aliens aboard,
crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside Roswell, New Mexico .
This is a well known incident that many say has long been covered-up
by the U.S. Air Force, as well as other Federal Agencies and Organizations.
However, What you may NOT know is that in the month of April, year 1948,
nine months after the historic day, the following people were born:
Barrack Obama Sr.
Albert A. Gore, Jr.
William J. Clinton
John F. Kerry
Charles E. Schumer
This is the consequence of aliens breeding with sheep and jack-asses.
I truly hope this bit of information clears up a lot of things for you.
It certainly did for me!
And now you can stop wondering why they support the bill to help all Illegal Aliens.

4 more years? David is one of more than 5 million long-term unemployed Americans....

Romney is planning to double down on the republican policies of deregulation of the financial market, defunding government, tax breaks for the wealthy, starting wars, obstructionism and making sure the longterm unemployed don't get help.
