Obama was handed a bunch of crap from the Republicans when he took office. He's dealing with them just like this oil issue, use what you have to change the balance of things. He should spend some money building better fuel efficient cars and developing alternative energy sources.

When obama took office, he had a full democratic congress which failed to do anything for four years except ram a healthcare bill down our throats the American people overwhemingly didn't want. That's why we threw them out in 2010. The change to new fuels and vehicles needs to change slowly and can be done. Until that time, drill baby, drill!

Odummy's approval rating is tanking. He has to do something fast. Now let's see what he does about the 9.1% unemployment rate.

The last fuel spike, every state media and liberal in congress was bashing Bush to open the reserves..........notice how quiet it got after Obama was in office. Liberal's actios always tell you what they really are and what they think.

The guy's useless and only hurts the country and the working taxpaying citizens that live in it. I know it hurts like a b*&ch for the people that voted for him who don't want to admit what a moron he is, so they continue to blame Bush for Obama FAIL.

He's a walking faceplant.

you mean "the Republican people overwhelmingly didn't want". I know tons of people that were all for it. Unfortunately, Fox News doesn't show you all of them, so you assume they don't exist.

Secondly, the price of gas is being artificially inflated due to speculators, not a low supply. The Strategic Petroleum Reserves aren't supposed to be used for making up a slight cost increase. They're supposed to be saved for when there seriously isn't enough oil int he world and the price of a barrel pops up over $500 a barrel (which will happen if we dont' find ways to rely on oil less). This is not the time to blow our savings.

Three years ago you said the fuel prices were the fault of the President. WE said it was the speculators. Make up you're figgen mind! What you don't realize, living where you live obviously, our oil companies scientists are working on that. Who the hell do you think if funding alternavite fuel research? Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi?? LMAO You liberals bounce around more than a Forrest Gump ping pong ball!

he is ALL about saving his political future, NOT about america.

One More NIT WIT....whem OBAMA took office gas was $1.79 a gal.,,,unemployment was 5%....The national Debt,was TRILLIONS less.... we Were better of...except for HALF BRAIN MONKEY FACES of which you probably are,Who always are looking for a Fee ride,and always Crying!.....You Do not know What yer Talking about...check the Facts! LOONY HEAD!!......yer just pone more "BUMP IN THE ROAD" who OBAMA just RAN OVER!!.......NIT-WIT!!

1) According to the Census Bureau, under Obama, the number of people in poverty is the highest it has been in 51 years! The average gap between rich and poor has grown under Obama more than it grew under Bush. The recent President that did the best in terms of closing the income gap was actually Clinton! Under him, the average gap shrunk!

2) Average unemployment under Bush: 5.2%(over 8 years); average unemployment under Obama: 9.4%(over first 18 months - but it's been hovering around 9% since, as well.) Under Clinton, average unemployment was 5.6%. However, both Bush and Clinton started their Presidencies with a recession, and Bush had an economic downturn to deal with following 9/11. So, both Dem. Clinton and Rep. Bush managed to keep unemployment down despite some challenges.

GET A LIFE..NIT WIT!...In fact it was OK under "BUBBA"..the IMPEACHED ONE!

After the reserves are opened what then? Won't the reserves have to be replenished? When will they be replenished? Now or after the price of oil goes down, if it does? What if it goes up again as it probably will? The status of the mideast is getting shakier day by day. OPEC couldn't care less what Obama says. They have us by the short hairs and know it. Obama the great thinker can only think about his re-election and nothing about the consequences of his actions.

envirmentalists know if the alaskan pipeline is shut down, by law it must be dismantled. if they can starve the pipeline of supply, they can kill alaskan drilling!!!!!!!!!! wsj. i vote no to opening up the reserves. i believe it's putting the cart before the horse. we will be in even more dire straits with oil supply. the envirmentalists attorneys name is brendan cummings.

That's smart.
Let's just piss away our reserves.
I'm sure Obama will fill it right back up with all that new drilling that's going on.
For the love of God and Country will someone please impeach this dispicable man.

He'll probably replace that oil with oil bought from Petrobras which his good buddy Soros happens to hold a 25% stake of.

Agree 100%.

President Obama has done a great job in pulling this nation from the edge of total economic collapse and we know that ever decision he makes is thought through and deliberated over; so if he goes to the reserves then it was in this nation best interest.

Yeah, leave them alone and start our own drilling and boot China off our coast line. Seems obama doesn't have trouble boosting other peoples production to sell it back to use. WTF is our govt trying to destroy us?
This is why common sense doesn't ring with liberal democrats. I just hope it isn't a purpose achievement to drive us all into poverty, just ignorance!
