I bet the employees, the workers paid plenty; while the corporations and their masters, paid little to nothing. Remember 24% of all corporations don't pay federal taxes. Of course they still have lobbying fees to make sure they won't ever have to pay taxes.
And the Heritage Foundation is extremely greatful, they should be able to cover Tea bagger DeMint's salary plus a bonus.

The highest national gas price ever: George Bush.

No matter how hard you stomp your feet.

PS: the POTUS has nothing to do with the price of gas but if you insist...

as long as gas prices stay high oil producers can justify the cost of drilling in the Bakken formation and why they are drilling like they are beside we have the technology now we didnt have 60 years ago either.

Yes, there are millions and they can be identified by the large red mark they have left from pressing the ear up next to the radio while listening to America's favorite fat draft dodging pill popping JUNKIE, Rush Limpballs.

But, like Limpballs, they are dying off.

I agree!!!

Texans will be fed up of the Feds raising them for money to bail out liberal bankrupt states. The Feds will deny Texas independence and then the revolution will star.

Soon the makers will be tired of the takers. But the takers will cross the line when they, after taking all the possible money, stuff and freedom, will come for their guns, with the backup of their socialist friends in the United Nations, and then the real revolution will start!!!

<quoted text>What's your point?

It wasn't 1.80? Wasn't even close to that when Obama was elected.
Gas crisis of 2008 raised gas prices...You wanna blame Obama for the 2008 gas crisis as well...

Besides, OPEC controls gas prices...The president has little control of what OPEC sets their prices to.
"Besides, OPEC controls gas prices...The president has little control of what OPEC sets their prices to."

Stupid hypocrite liberals, that is not what you said when Bush was in power, retarded!!!

Can you answer this, I dare you: why was your liberal media interviewing motorists on the pain and suffering at the gas stations when gas was $2.00?

But none to be seen when gas is $4.00 under Obama!

That little fact alone proves beyond any doubt that liberals are hypocrites and wrong and conservatives are the real adults in America.

You DID blame Bush.

And you know it and we know how idiot you were and still are for blaming him!!!

You did and your whole liberal machine did!!!

You know they did and you agreed because it was a Republican but the next Republican you will quickly blame him for high gas prices too.

You guys do not fool us any more!

Good Lord, Can't you people agree on anything?
Someone is lying and someone is right, go look it up. All I know, people have been paying near or
at $4.00 and its more than I can afford. What
or when you paid, if it was important to you,
"YOU would surly know the price"!
When it gets to $7.00 a gallon as predicted next year after war between Syria, Israel and Iran then liberals will blame Bush again because they are do retarded they do but see the Obama-gas connection.

Conservativism = freedom + personal responsibility.

Any other definition is incorrect!!!

Liberalism = hate this country + bigger government

Can you spot their fundamental contradiction?

How many taxes are collected from all the lazy liberal ghetto scums?

I never got a job from a liberal ghetto trash only from rich people.

Corporations pay me good for my professional services, while ghetto liberal trash watch my car to break into it with their food stamp purchased tools and guns.

What are we living under right now?

Real 15% unemployment, dude!

$5.00 gas heading to $7.00 because of your liberal policies but do not worry the Polar bears are safe.

Liberals are idiots!!!

About 55 million Americans are registered Republicans.

About 72 million are registered Democrats.

About 42 million are registered as independents.

Last month about 65 million people voted for Obama, 61 million for Romney. Do the math. Then keep telling yourself how many conservatives/republicans are "dying off..
