No matter how hard you stomp your feet.
PS: the POTUS has nothing to do with the price of gas but if you insist...
GO look at the charts AGAIN--and reread the post. Ask your remedial jr high school instructor for additional help if you need further assistance.

OH and.......if you get REALLY desperate for something to grasp straws in trying to comprehend, rather than just running your ignohole in childish anTics--try this one!!

2008-- 68 MIL spent by big pharma/health care--LOBBYING Congress-

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.
Apparently Illiterate hypocrites at that!!(or wayyyyyyy in denial as far as FACTS and REAL truth go!!)

Yes, your president has made it the focus of his entire campaign.
nyango moved as a young man back to the ancestral lands of Nyang’oma Kogelo. Onyango both respected and resented the white man’s power.
He worked as a cook for British families, served with the King’s African Rifles during the First and Second world wars, and was jailed for six months in 1949....charged with membership in an anti-colonial political organization.

The migration would also affect the fate of Barack Obama Sr.—the bright schoolboy dabbled in anti-colonial politics following his father’s detention, then pursued a Western education in the hope of transforming his fragile, emerging nation, which would achieve independence in 1963.
... Tom Mboya....A prominent Luo politician at the time of Kenya’s independence, he was widely seen as a likely successor to Jomo Kenyatta, the country’s first president. Mboya created a scholarship program in the late 1950s, enabling gifted Kenyans to attend universities abroad; among its beneficiaries was an ambitious young student of economics named Barack Obama Sr., who would become the first African exchange student at the University of Hawaii at Manoa in Honolulu....

Six decades later, as I’ve been reminded by my journey through the Luo highlands, this remains in many ways a deeply divided country.

The divide is no longer so much between black and white, but between the privileged, well-connected few and the destitute many.

Call them Kenya’s 99 percent.

Barack Obama’s presidency in far-off America filled many ordinary Kenyans with unrealistic expectations, persuading them that their lives would be altered overnight. It has been left to dedicated realists like his sister Auma to bring them down to earth—and to convince them that transformation lies in their own hands....

No one takes your predictions seriously, honey, anymore seriously than they took that prediction that the mothership is above LA and about to beam up the souls of believers before the end of the world that is...

Oh right... it didn't happen.

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..
You did notice that a Republican was running in the last election?

How'd that turn out for you?

Voter Rolls Are Rife With Inaccuracies, Report Finds

One in eight active registrations is invalid or inaccurate. At the same time, one in four people who are eligible to vote — at least 51 million potential voters — are not registered.

The report found that there are about 1.8 million dead people listed as active voters. Some 2.8 million people have active registrations in more than one state. And 12 million registrations have errors serious enough to make it unlikely that mailings based on them will reach voters.

If **YOU** want to blame Obama for the high gas prices, than *I* get to remind you that that the highest national price occured when GEORGE BUSH was president.

I know: you stopped being logical when you drop out of the fourth grade.

Do give us a shout as soon as one of those 1.8 million dead people vote.

I guess we have to blame the dead people for not notifying the various secretaries of state that they have passed on and to remove them from the voting roles...
